I’m happy to announce that my latest Jess Kimball Thriller, FATAL BOND, is now available!
You can find it in paperback and ebook HERE.
I started writing about Jess several years ago after a friend suggested a great true crime book by Dominic Dunne. If you’re not familiar with him, Dunne was a journalist who wrote for Vanity Fair magazine, among others. His specialty became reporting on high profile criminal cases, usually involving the rich and famous.
My Jess Kimball is a fictional, younger, female version inspired by Dominic Dunne. She writes for the high profile (fictional) magazine, Taboo. Her personal motivation? Jess’s son, Peter, was taken when he was an infant and she was little more than a child herself. Since then, she’s been searching for her boy. To keep the search alive and Peter’s case in the public eye so that people will remain aware and keep a look out, she investigates cases where victims rightly feel they haven’t received proper justice.
In Fatal Bond…
An explosion ripped through a close-knit community in Iowa, leaving five dead, dozens hospitalized, and the country outraged. One of their own is charged with planting the bomb based on airtight evidence.
Shattered and bewildered, his mother begs Jess Kimball to investigate. Since her own son was taken, Jess has never refused a heartbreaking plea from a desperate mother.
She rushes to Iowa to find the truth. Instead, she learns the only alibi witness has already fled the country.
Unwilling to admit defeat, Jess traces the witness to Spain. Teamed with a British operative, Jess is thrust into the international search for a lethal virus. Together they race against time to find and stop a ruthless killer before he destroys them all.
