Ally...or Enemy? When genius computer hacker, Carla Starr, encounters forces beyond her virtual power, she's baffled by her inability to defeat them. Is the government her enemy? Her friend? Can she keep her identity, her sanity? Can she even stay alive? Interview The following interview with the author was conducted by the Central California Sun Times. Q - What makes the Control series unique? A - The people in the book and variety of genres. The third book, Annie's War, is Part 3 of a massive novel, Control. I decided to offer the novel's parts as free books to introduce the characters to lovers of crime thrillers. Since I love reading mystery and thriller, private detective, political thrillers, and serial killer novels, I'm producing these genres in one series. Each book in the series is based on a new lead character. The idea is to introduce and focus on each person, while at the same time driving the action forward, a real page-turner. Q - Do we have to read the books in any particular order? A - Not really. I've designed each part's story so it stands alone, and you can read the books in any order. All of the story and subplot threads tie up in Book 5, but each book contains its own main plot that climaxes and resolves in that book of the series. If you do want to read them in order, I'd suggest following the Book numbering sequence: 1 -- McKuen's Revenge 2 -- Coil's Cold Justice 3 -- Annie's War 4 -- Carla's Mission 5 -- Annihilation Q - Why should readers give these books a try? A - The Control series moves fast. They're crime thrillers which leave you wrung out and satisfied. The books contain kidnapping, serial killers, vigilante justice, smuggling, terrorism and cyber-crime. The series winds up with an ending that rivals many horror novels. The good guys win, of course, but not without paying a life-changing price. Add generous helpings of romance throughout, and you've got plots that twist and turn all the way to the end. Q - Can readers get the whole series in one book? A - Absolutely. The novel Control is the five Books packaged together as one. It's a big political thriller that starts with a serial killer, vigilante justice and kidnapping plot in Santa Monica, evolving to an espionage and terrorist plot in Minneapolis and Washington, D.C., to a digital thriller set in the gritty urban streets of South Central Los Angeles. In the end, the plots come together with a boom in LA. Just take a look at my author page for more details, and a full list of available titles. Q - Are there prequels or sequels available? A - Yes, the novels Illusion and The Greatest Game feature the same people in the same locations. Illusion sets up Steve McKuen's story, and The Greatest Game sets up Charlotte Coil's. Annie McCarthy figures prominently in each of them. Please see my author page for those books. Q - Anything you would like to add? A - Thanks for reading!

Careening down the switchbacks of Highway 1 in Big Sur, it came to him -- he had to do something. With the stories he'd lived through, sharing them was almost good works. Early on King was a professional musician, then worked in the motion picture business. Later demoted to the software industry, he realized that the keyboard had been following him around for years, so...it was time to write books. King's debut novel, Illusion, was based on a person he knew with a what-if twist: what if the former-drug-dealer-now-bar-owner was a nice guy, a moral guy, not a maniac, but pursued by consequences from his past? Crime thrillers evolved, like The Greatest Game, starring female sleuth, Charlotte Coil. A slice of inspirational romance with a dash of the paranormal came from other characters King has known, colorful people with checkered pasts, mashed up with urban legends. The books feature dark romance, mystery and suspense, political figures to serial killers, terrorists and mafia assassins, that result in Secret Service, FBI and CIA involvement. But they're no match for vigilante justice dispensed by the lead characters. You'll find them disturbing and intriguing in their quests for vengeance, and ultimately, freedom.
