Jack Gannon’s first international assignment is to find out whether his colleagues were innocent victims or targets who got too close to a huge story. A CARIBBEAN CRUISE ENDS IN HORROR…Doctors are desperate to identify the mysterious cause of a cruise ship passenger’s agonizing death. They turn to the world’s top scientists who determine that someone has resurrected their long-buried secret research. Research that is now being used as a deadly weapon. With millions of lives at stake, experts work frantically against time. And as an anguished mother searches for her child and Jack Gannon pursues the truth, an unstoppable force hurls them all into the panic zone.[/quote]

If you’ve never read Rick Mofina before, then hang on for a thrill ride you’ll never forget. Catch the beginning in VENGEANCE ROAD:
Jack Gannon made his first appearance last year in VENGEANCE ROAD.
The murder of a broken-hearted woman and the chilling disappearance of her friend raise questions about their ties to a respected detective and lead to one journalist’s obsession to find the truth!
The body of Bernice Hogan, a troubled young ex-nursing student with a tragic past, is found in a shallow grave near a forest creek.
Jolene Peller, a single mom struggling to build a new life with her little boy, vanishes the night she tried to find Bernice. Hero cop, Karl Styebeck is beloved by his community but privately police are uneasy with the answers he gives to protect the life — and the lie — he’s lived.
The case haunts Jack Gannon, a gritty, blue-collar reporter whose sister run away from their family years ago. Gannon risks more than his job to pursue the story behind Styebeck’s dark secret, his link to the women, and the mysterious big rig roaming America’s loneliest highways on its descent into eternal darkness.
There’s more to come, if you dare.
Rick has three books in internationally acclaimed Jason Wade Series and five books in his Tom Reed Series, where crime and reporting crash head-on for explosive, edge-of-your-seat suspense.
