My Latest Book

 

Wet Work  is the follow-up Dick Thornby adventure to my spy thriller Net Impact. Please click on the image to go to the Kickstarter page for this new project..

 

After taking personal revenge on the criminal behind both his son’s injuries and the continued disintegration of his marriage, Dick Thornby is teamed with Acacia (“Ace”) Zyreb, a young, female agent from the East European office of the Subsidiary, to deal with the mystery behind coordinated hacking of the braking systems of several car models.

 

Doing his best to maintain his vows to his wife, Dick struggles to deal with the inexperience and provocative attitude of Ace on her first non-European mission. Their somewhat combative investigation takes a left turn by uncovering a much more sinister threat to the world and to Dick's family. He's willing to risk his job, his partner, and his life to eliminate the threat, but the clock is ticking.

 

Thoughtful reviews are always welcome.

Dick Thornby is not Hollywood's idea of a spy.

     He's a new kind of spy for a new kind of world.
