"I would recommend this book to fans of Cormac in the Kitty Norville series, fans of the Dresden Files or fans of Monster Hunter International." M.L. Page, Amazon Reviewer
"Smoke Rising" is an effective, engaging suspense novel that starts out as pure thriller before developing its supernatural twist that pulls the reader even more deeply into the plot.
-E. Lucas, Top 500 Reviewer-
Where there's Smoke, there's hellfire...
Bounty Hunter John Smoke never liked the rules. As a result of his overly aggressive--and often illegal--arrest methods, he ended up behind bars. But the Bureau won't let him be. Placed in the able care of beautiful, tough-as-nails Sidney Shaw, his new FBI handler, Smoke needs to alter his loose-cannon ways to remain a free man.
But there is an unchecked evil festering deep in the heart of the nation's capital, a shadow conspiracy that won't be defeated with a by-the-book approach to law enforcement. A vast, hidden network of criminals with the terrifying ability to shapeshift into monsters is spreading its supernatural sickness into the very fabric of human society. No ordinary mortal can fight it. But there's nothing ordinary about John Smoke, which Sidney Shaw is about to discover as she follows Smoke's trail into the darkest, most secret corners of Washington, DC.
Because now the clock is ticking...and the fate of humankind itself may be at stake. The unexpected begins.
