And became the man I grew to hate.

He thought he could buy my loyalty.
He was wrong.

I’ve always wondered if this day would comeâ?¦
When I couldn’t pull the trigger.

I figured a bullet would be the death of me.
But it wasn’t a gun that killed me.

She did.

by Jette Harris

What could make an FBI agent walk out of his retirement ceremony?

Special Agent Richard Steyer has had an impressive career, with one glaring failure: capturing the serial killer, rapist, and arsonist known as the Phoenix.

The Phoenix Killer has been committing rape, murder, and arson across the United States for almost a decade. Now a small police department believes the Phoenix has kidnapped four high school seniors in the suburbs of Atlanta.

The clock is ticking.

Steyer and his partner, Remington, know they have less than a month to find the Phoenix if they want to recover any of the hostages.

But when the Phoenix learns his favorite investigators are on his tail, he includes Steyer and Remington, the assisting officers, and the hostages’ families in his sadistic game.

A riveting crime thriller and FBI procedural, Two Guns complements and contrasts the horror of COLOSSUS.

Follow a resilient young woman, a mismatched team of investigators, and a mesmerizing antagonist in Run Rabbit Run, a twisted cat and mouse suspense series:
COLOSSUS, book 1
Two Guns, book 2
(books 1 & 2 can be read in any order)
RUIN, book 3
â?¦ and more to come!

“[Two Guns] chilled me to the bone.” – Read with Me

In a story that continues what she started with the very good COLOSSUS: Run Rabbit Run Book 1, Harris shows a wealth of improvement from one already-exceptional book to the next. Two Guns expands brilliantly and powerfully on Avery Rhodesâ?¦ Two Guns is a near-flawless continuation of Harris’ ongoing story. — Gabriel Ricard, Drunk Monkeys

An untested lieutenant. An unwinnable war. An impossible choice that could tear his platoon apart. Korea, 1950. Lt. Jonas Stuyvesant’s privileged upbringing hadn’t prepared him for the hardships of war. But when North Korea launches a surprise attack, he and his ragtag platoon suddenly find themselves on the front lines of a war not even Washington expected.

Outgunned and outnumbered, his platoon retreats from Osan through Taejon on down the whole length of the Korean Peninsula until their backs are pressed against the sea. As the war-weary troops hunker in for a final stand, a twist of fate gives Jonas a chance to leave the deadly frontline far behind. Before their attackers close in, Jonas must make an impossible choice: leave his brothers-in-arms facing the enemy alone or sacrifice everything to stand by their side to the bitter end. Forgotten Valor: A Novel of the Korean War is a visceral work of historical fiction covering the first three months of America’s forgotten war. If you like under-examined military history, gritty details, and soldiers’ perspectives, then you’ll love Richard Thomas Lane’s story of courage under fire.
