Die By Wire – On Sale Now & Ready To Read!
Die By Wire - Inspired by the true story (see Economist, below) of volunteer women snipers who have terrorized Russian troops in order to protect innocent civilians in countries Moscow has invaded over the past 20 years.
Mira Longbow knows the face of evil. As a professor, she studies it better than anyone else on the planet. As a member of a dedicated and deadly cadre of women volunteers, she does something about it.
So, it’s no surprise when Mira’s University of Amsterdam seminar is interrupted by a mission to take out the mastermind of a global child-bride, human slavery trafficking ring that has been too rich, too powerful, and too slippery for law enforcement.
Three thousand miles away in Afghanistan, highly decorated Spec Ops warfighter, Jackson Day, tells his commanding officer that, owing to some personal history with Mira, he would rather single-handedly face off with a regiment of Taliban jihadis than knock on Longbow’s door.
But the choice is not his. Mira’s gift for languages provides their last hope of understanding a garbled conversation Day recorded on a covert mission in a remote corner of Iran.
The apocalyptic conversation seems to describe a devastating and diabolically creative terror plot to make a large number of passenger aircraft suddenly disappear over the Atlantic.
For her part, Mira has little patience for Day’s interruption. The last thing that she needs is a distraction from her new mission. Not to mention the unavoidable, white-hot rekindling of feelings she has carried for Day for half a decade.
From the very beginning, their sense of duty compels them to cooperate. And as they both had feared, the close quarters required for this ignites an inevitably combustible passion which has simmered for way too long.
Very quickly they realize they are after the same villain – and he has to be stopped. But they realize that neither of them can do it alone
Together, their combined skills and feelings for each other forge a complete and awesome weapon to strike at the evil heart of terror.
But only if they can move fast enough …
