A Flash of Red introduces a major new thriller writer and a major new thriller hero - Tyler Vance, special operative turned family man, who just can't seem to avoid the trouble that turns up at his door. Vance thought he'd left the violence behind when he quit the military twenty years ago and moved to North Carolina. Now a freelance gun writer and the father of four-year-old Cullen, he wants nothing more than to forget those days, but that was before the bank robber pointed a gun at him, before Vance's instincts took over and he dropped the gunman first, before he found out just whom he'd killed and what it meant. For the gunman had family too, and they definitely believe in an eye for an eye...or maybe two. Strong, smart-tongued, surrounded by a memorable cast of friends and family, each of whom contributes as the battle escalates, Vance is a wholly likable hero, lively, inventive, and tough.



Praise for this book
