    Tune in for a special event on Friday, September 4th at 5pm EST! Meet thriller writer Shane Gericke and enter his world of intrigue, suspense and heart-racing adventure as we talk about his new novel The Fury! Held at knifepoint, hit by lightning, and shaking the cold sweaty hand of Liberace, he was born to write thriller novels! 


     


    Book Blurb:


    If a grief-blinded cop can’t find the man who murdered her husband, millions will die in a doomsday attack on the United States . . .


    The Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico washes a secret cache of Cold War doomsday weapons onto a Mexican beach: VX nerve gas bombs laced with anthrax, invented by the Nazis during World War II and perfected by the United States to use against Russia during the Cold War. The bombs soon fall into the wrong hands and create an unstoppable opponent—a cartel boss consumed with hate for America. Only one Chicago Police detective stands in the way of those bombs being exploded on American soil. Reeling from the recent murder of her husband, as well as allegations of police misconduct, Detective Superstition “Sue” Davis is thrown into an undercover assignment filled with treachery, assassination, double-crosses, and death. She infiltrates the Mexican narcotics cartel responsible for the death of her husband, Derek, in order to get close to the cartel’s sociopathic enforcer, Jiménez “Jimmy” Garcia . . .
