The second book in my Cold Justice Series comes out next Monday, June 2nd.
This Romantic Suspense series centers roughly around the lives of people who work for the FBI, specifically for the Behavior Analysis Unit. Now, although that’s the anchor point of the series (at least for the first three books) the theme of the stories is more about how there’s sometimes a moral ambiguity between the law and what the common-man might perceive as actual justice.
The first book in the series, A COLD DARK PLACE, concentrates on vigilante justice--is it ever acceptable or preferable to the justice system? The second book, COLD PURSUIT, looks more at the culpability of those who are working under orders from their government. What lines are they able to cross without becoming criminals? Who should be held responsible--them or the State?
I don’t get too deep addressing the issues--I don’t ask questions at the end of the book or ask for a show of hands as to whether any character goes too far ;) But I hope the storyline maybe stirs something deep and subconscious in the reader’s mind about how easy it might be, under the right circumstances, to cross that line.
Do you have an un-crossable line when it comes to the actions of heroes or heroines in Romantic Suspense novels? I should probably say upfront, I’ve probably crossed them all :)
Single mom Vivi Vincent is thrust into her worst nightmare when she’s trapped inside a mall during a terror attack along with her eight-year-old son. With the help of Jed Brennan, an FBI special agent on enforced leave, Vivi and her son survive the assault. But the danger is far from over.
Vivi’s son may have witnessed critical details of the terrorists’ future plans and is targeted for death, but he’s mute, and he’s traumatized. Still someone launches a strike against the FBI’s safe house, and Jed fears the bad guys have an inside man. No longer knowing who to trust, he hides mother and son in a log cabin deep in the heart of the Wisconsin Northwoods. There Jed and Vivi try to figure out how to unlock the information inside her son’s head. What they don’t bargain for is the red-hot attraction that flares between them, or the extent of the sinister plot that threatens to rip apart not only any chance of happiness they might have together, but also the very fabric of American society.
