This is also the first time I've shared the cover with anyone but my newsletter subscribers. The art is by Oregon artist Rebecca Prough and you can watch it come together on her blog. The way the image gradually appears on her canvas reminds me of when I did counted cross-stitch. The cover design is by the wonderful Syd Gill Designs.
Introducing Duncan McCaragh:
Duncan McCaragh had always trusted his instincts, which had kept him alive more times than he cared to count.
When Diane — the stylish brunette executive assistant who'd flirt a bit whenever he came to Manhattan — kept her gaze glued to her computer screen while he cooled his heels in the outer office of the Global News Network, his Spidey senses began to tingle.
Duncan had survived an IED explosion in Iraq, a firefight in the Hindu Kush, and had sweated bullets convincing a Syrian military officer that he was merely a correspondent in the country covering the civil war. He’d had his phone confiscated during his brief imprisonment, but had lived to tell the tale.
Over the years, some had called him brave. Others, who envied his knack of being in exactly the right place at the right time, claimed he was merely lucky. Still others, mostly his competitors, insisted that his earlier military deployments made him a reckless adrenaline junkie. Hence the nickname Mad Dog McCaragh.
Thanks for visiting! Wishing all Christians a happy and blessed Easter. For everyone else, have a super Sunday! I hope you'll all come back for Tuesday Tastings, where I share a recipe from one of my books.
