But will Emily cross over into vigilantism?
Rick Lopez – an ex-police detective who found his way to Emily Stone as her covert partner. He’s Emily’s rock during this investigation and life-threatening ordeal. A man of a few well-placed words, strong, intelligent, extremely capable, and it’s a good thing that he’s one of the good guys.
Jordan Smith – a young man that seems vaguely familiar. Almost everyone has known that wise-cracking, no holds barred, and not afraid to tell you the truth to your face kind of guy. You found him. An ex-FBI profiler and now is recruited into Emily’s covert team. Can he keep his crush on Emily to himself or will he let everything hit the fan?
Angel – alone, independent, frail, diabolical, hyper-intelligent, and has a specific fire agenda. Find out who he really is… Once you’ve been introduced to his handiwork, it will be impossible to forget him.
Red – a hitman, assassin, and contract killer are just a few labels this man goes by with today’s crime labels. He crosses paths with Emily Stone. But what’s his motive?
Mr. Bishop – a determined man with hidden agendas that heads up a contract government agency called GATE: Government Anti-Terrorism Enforcement. Or, is it?
Detective Bobby Duncan – a dogged detective that has investigated serial crimes, but he is in his most difficult case just before his retirement. Will it be a case that he can’t solve?
Fire Investigator Myers – carefree and full of grit. His cavalier attitude about arson cases could get him in serious trouble.
Judge Christensen – The judge that proceeds over criminal cases. He is forced to let a rapist go free due to insufficient evidence. Is this the beginning of more cases like this?
Sarge – large, loveable, intelligent, and loyal with an extremely wet nose, which catches some of the action. He’s Emily Stone’s four-legged Labrador.
A recent 5 Star Review of DEAD BURN:
“…Dead Burn” is a gut-wrenching, nerve-wracking thriller that will keep you glued to the edge of your seat from start to finish. Multiple sub-plots threaten Emily’s life from directions she doesn’t even suspect until after she has managed to elude them. If you like thrillers, get this book, a bottle of antacid tablets, and clear your calendar for a few days so you won’t be interrupted. Advise your family that you are not to be disturbed, under penalty of your wrath if they do disturb you. Then prepare yourself for an emotional roller coaster that will challenge your stamina. This is a story you will not soon forget.”
