I would like to thank Lynette for hosting me once again on her blog so soon. I last visited a couple months ago and discussed the Progression of a Series, specifically my Risky Research Series. In that post I mentioned the upcoming April 9, 2021 release of the fourth installment in the series, A Measure of Madness. I would also like to mention that I also recently released a prequel micro-read to the series, Midnight in Montana, which is free to download from the usual sources. But for now, here’s a bit more on the latest novel, A Measure of Madness.
After a Washington, D.C. fundraiser exposes members of Coterie, a deadly organization that has been manipulating the diet and nutrition industries, the pursuit by FBI agent Devyn Nash heats up. The FBI locates the mastermind behind Coterie in Puerto Rico, but despite help from local agents, their attempt to bring him in results in a shootout that sends Coterie’s members scrambling for cover, Devyn’s partner fighting for his life, and Devyn more determined than ever to bring them to justice. Her decision to pursue the head of Coterie to Brazil puts her job and her relationship with Wyoming Sheriff, Gage Harris, in jeopardy, but she is unwilling to allow those responsible for so much death to live out their lives in paradise.
Devyn did as ordered as tears streamed down her checks. She felt like a coward running, but knew it was retreat or die.
Bullets rained around her as she ran in a zig-zag pattern, trying to avoid being hit. She had almost reached the truck when a bullet grazed her ankle, sending her tumbling to the ground. She scrambled to her feet. Fueled with adrenaline, she ignored the pain as she hobbled the last twenty feet to the truck.
Sliding into the driver’s seat, she locked the doors and fished the keys out of her pocket. She dared a glance back. Sofia was still firing at Ramon and J.R., but was clearly too far gone to get off an accurate shot. But she had effectively given Devyn the time she needed to get to the truck.
As Sofia’s arm lowered, J.R. walked toward her. He knelt on the ground and placed his lips to hers for a long and tender moment. He then slowly rose to his feet and pointed the gun at Sofia.
Devyn couldn’t watch. She threw the truck into reverse and hit the gas. The truck’s tire’s spun and skidded on the dirt and gravel as she raced backwards until she reached a spot wide enough to turn around. Cranking the wheel hard, she spun the vehicle and barreled toward BR-116.
