DEATH ECHO: PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
DEATH ECHO

BY ELIZABETH LOWELL

ABOUT THE BOOK:

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell cuts a new edge in suspense with this thrilling tale of passion, danger, and international intrigue in which a pair of former operatives must stop a deadly plot that threatens a major American city—and ultimately the world

When she joined St. Kilda's, the elite security consulting firm, Emma Cross thought she'd left behind the blood, the guilt, and the tribal wars that defined her life at the CIA. Yet, trading spying for investigating yacht thefts didn't alleviate the danger—or melt away her professional paranoia. Now, the same good instincts that got her into trouble at the agency might be what will help her survive her latest case.

With some arm-twisting, St. Kilda and Emma are tracking a yacht named Blackbird, a dead ringer for another ship that went missing somewhere between Vladivostok and Portland a year earlier. Emma knows the boat's intended cargo is lethal. What she needs to find out is whether it's biological, chemical, or fissionable. And she's only got seven days to uncover the truth . . . or a major American city will be lost.

Fortunately, she's working with a new partner as menacing and distrustful as the worst enemy she's ever faced—and as deadly. A honed killer, MacKenzie Durand led a special ops team that was deployed to some of the world's nastiest places. But five years ago everything went to hell in Afghanistan, when bad intel hung his team out to dry. The only survivor, Mac walked away and never looked back, preferring to make money sailing high-end boats like Blackbird.

But Emma and Mac aren't the only eyes watching Blackbird. Taras Demidov, an expert in extortion and execution in the pay of the oligarchs running the former Soviet Union, is also waiting in the shadows, determined to intercept a fearsomely powerful arms dealer with the money, weaponry, and connections to alter the geopolitical balance.

Thrown together by an organization of enemies with global ties more dangerous than either of them realize, Mac and Emma must put aside their growing attraction for each other to save more than just their own lives. In a deadly game where the rules change without warning and the line between friend and foe is blurred, the pair must find answers fast—or watch as innocent civilians are sacrificed in a cold-blooded grab for power and supremacy. And even Mac and Emma aren't sure just who will get to the finish line alive. . . .

A breathtaking tale of passion and danger, Death Echo is superb entertainment from the queen of suspense, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell.

I am a huge fan of Elizabeth's stories. She gives us suspenseful plots with that 'ripped from the headlines' feel to them.

At her website I found that Ann & her husband Evan are co-authors. She writes under her name of Ann Maxwell but when she started writing romance novels she took the pen name of Elizabeth Lowell.

The fact that our heroine and hero won't know who can be trusted drew me in. I love the fact that I will be kept guessing and that I may revise my opinon several times before I solve the mystery.

I found it intresting that the standard book tour lasts 30 days and that Elizabeth is exempt from the standard tour.

My husband just found out he likes suspense. I won a bunch of used books from another contest and they were nothing I would read, but jeff is loving every one of them. He usually prefers fantasy or urban fantasy. Oh and the classics too. chirth7@yahoo.com

I always like tales about ex-CIA and those sort of covert style organizations they work for after the "retire".

I like her answer to what to say to friends snickering about reading romance novels. Would they rather read about murder mayhem and depressio well then fine.

bettycd said...

Love international spy intrigue - sounds like a great thriller. Don't think I've ever seen 'fissionable' used before so, yes I'd love to read this book

bettycd said...

On her website she discussed writing under various names. It seems like once she started using pseudonyms it snowballed. Some names are contracted to certain publishers and can or can't be used with current books, other times publishers would specify that they wanted a female name as author even though it had been written with her husband. I've read Fire Dancer which came out back in the 80's
