Today’s Free Kindle eBook: The Kill Gene (Previously Published as Even The Wind): A Jonas Brant Thriller
A murdered woman. A wounded cop. A Russian gangster. The power over life and death. Boston homicide detective Jonas Brant gets more than he bargained for when he’s called to the scene of a shooting in downtown Boston. A young woman lies dead, shot in the head at close range, the only hint of her identity the clothes she was wearing at the time of her death. This is the dangerous world Brant must navigate as he begins to piece together the shocking circumstances of the young woman’s untimely death and the truth behind a research project many would prefer stays relegated to the shadows. Once Brant was a grunt in Afghanistan, serving the greater good on the front lines. Now he’s a cop on the cusp of a deadly frontier of another kind.Teamed with rookie detectives Katy Malloy and John Clatterback, Brant dives into one of the most baffling mysteries of his career, plumbing the depths of a world he knows nothing about. It is a world of genes, retroviruses and million dollar molecules, of rogue researchers, dubious science and high stakes.With the arrival of Russian gangster Sergei Volodin, the investigation takes a different turn. Volodin isn’t in the mood to bargain. He’s intelligent, he’s ruthless and he’s got Brant in his sights. Brant’s journey to the wilds of Maine and the crimes he uncovers is breathtaking in scope. How does a good cop stay good when so much of the world around him resides within the shadows?The Kill Gene introduces Lieutenant Jonas Brant in a complex exploration of what it means to be human.A question and answer with the author:Why genre fiction?The word `genre’ has a negative connotation, the implication being that thrillers or romance novels have little to offer beyond their entertainment value. I disagree. Some of the most important novels of our time have been set squarely in the realm of what we’d call genre fiction. The detective novel, or the police procedural, occupies a particularly important place. I admire and respect the authors of “serious” novels, but I find the narrative structure of the thriller a compelling milieu in which to base a story. Thrillers allow for topical commentary on the most important themes of the day. There’s nothing more satisfying than a plot-driven thriller built around compelling characters. The icing on the cake, if you’ll pardon the cliche, is the opportunity afforded the author to make observations or to comment on the world as it exists at the moment. Where did Jonas Brant come from?Jonas Brant was born and raised in South Boston. He’s a lieutenant in the Boston Police Department working out of a building on Tremont Street. We know he’s a father and that his wife was killed in a car accident several years previous. We know he has a sister and his father has cancer. We know he likes lattes, scones and classic rock from the ’80s. We know some elements of his life, but I wanted to keep much of his background vague — at least for the moment. I want to take the reader on a journey as, together, we discover more about the man and his family. Does the world really need another morose cop?Absolutely! I love series characters. There’s nothing better than a character brought to life through both the minutia of daily life and the broader story arc presented by whatever case is being investigated at the moment. There’s no coincidence that many of the police officers and detectives I most like reading about are hampered in some way by physical or mental ailments. It’s what makes them interesting. It’s what keeps me reading. I am particularly fond of Martin Cruz Smith’s Arkady Renko and Ian Rankin’s John Rebus. These are real characters facing real challenges. While I’ve tried to make Jonas Brant as original as possible, some readers may see a bit of Renko or Rankin in his demeanor. But I wouldn’t say Brant is morose. Keywords:*police procedural*crime thriller
