Good morning. With KILLER WITHIN as a Kindle Monthly Deal in August, I thought I'd share a little excerpt from the sequel, SEX LIES POLITICS. Nearly through a second draft, enjoying my time with Allison McNeil.

The six-man tactical unit converged on the shack, appearing from the fog-covered forest as slow-moving shadows in the pre-dawn light. The small building stood on a rise, up from the swampy, flood-prone land around it. Wood-slated walls tilted precariously inward, twisting the windows into deformed rectangles. Moss and dead leaves covered the roof. The place smelled and looked like decay, well on its way to inevitable reclamation by the weeds and vines choking the shack to a miserable death.
And, if Allison McNeil was right, the place deserved what it got. Hell, if she was right, she had half a mind to take a match to the place after everything was done.
She hunkered down behind a fallen tree, her head barely clearing the top to see the building and the team closing in. A trickle of sweat started at the base of her neck and went the length of her spine. She adjusted the Kevlar vest, under her light windbreaker emblazoned with large yellow letters. FBI. It felt ridiculous to wear the windbreaker when in was in the 80s before daybreak with the Louisiana humidity hovering at about a thousand percent, but if it meant that the hotheads with assault rifles could more easily identify her as a friendly, then she was happy to have it.
Garret Morrison shifted his weight next to her, stretching out a leg and rubbing his knee. She gave him a sideways look.
“You all right?” she whispered.
He scowled at her. They both knew she didn’t give a damn about him. The comment was intended as a dig at the fifty-three year old Garret who prided himself on being in better shape than the agents beneath him. Even though he ran the National Crime Unit, home of the FBI’s fabled profilers who spent more time in the heads of the criminals they chased than in the field, he required an aggressive physical program for his people. Everything about Morrison is a throwback to the old male-dominated Bureau. A slicked-back head of hair with just the right amount of grey to lend him gravitas without making him look old, a square jaw out of a mountaineering magazine, cold steel-blue eyes that seemed to look through people instead of at them. Unless they were trained on an attractive female, in which case his eyes gave their full attention to the area below the chin and above the waistline.
“Worry about yourself,” Garret grumbled. He turned to Doug Browning, a junior agent who followed Garret around like a little puppy. “Jesus, Doug. Not so close.”
Allison turned back to the shack and raised her binoculars, not bothering to hide the smile on her lips. Garret was a legend in the Bureau for his work hunting America’s worst criminals, but Allison’s own legend had grown since her work on the Arnie Milhouse case a year earlier. While that case had given her credibility, she knew she was just as likely to be referred to as the woman who’d broken Garret Morrison’s nose when he’d made one too many unwanted advances while she was a trainee. And, while she wanted to be known for her work, she didn’t mind that piece of fame following her around.
“Alpha team in position,” said a voice through the small speaker in her ear. She noticed Garret put a finger to the side of his head and nod. He looked over at her.
“You better be right about this,” he whispered.

This is my favorite Barnes and Noble in the US. It's in the old Power Plant in Baltimore's Inner Habor and you can still see the old smokestacks inside. Very cool! And great to see a long line on a summer day of people buying books. ... See MoreSee Less

Sandy Law-GapinskiHi Jeff, I am your mom and dad's former neighbor from Camp Dodge. My husband and I just visted them 2 weeks ago. Beautiful area ! Just wanted to let you know that you have another follower. Night Chill is really getting into my head. Since I am a S. King fan too, I just want you to know how you have mastered and exceeded his skills. I started reading Night Chills in bed in the dark. After the first 50 pages, I can only read it during daylight hours. You are successfully freaking me out! Great writing! Thanks for the summer chill!7 days ago
Angela RaglandI love Barnes and Noble!! If only I could get a $100.00 gift card instead of $25.00 on my birthday! Lol I'd be in heaven!!! So much to see and love the discount racks of best sellers!!7 days ago
