knife edge thriller. Robin Monarch is a great character you can’t help but get
on-side with. Filled with twists and turns, double-crossing and decade harboured

into the rituals and secrets of a hidden tribe.
The secret the
tribe hold is wanted by two rich unethical businessmen, they take something the
thief loves more than life, forcing him to steal the secret from the tribe.

Reviewer: Nicks Cooper Brown
grew up outside of Boston and says the best job he’s ever had was selling
souvenirs at Fenway Park during his high school summers. He attended Hamilton
College, graduating in 1980 with a BA in English. Two weeks later, he boarded a
plane bound for Niger, West Africa, where he worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer
in Agades. Upon Mark’s return to the United States in 1982, he attended the
Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. He worked at Reuters,
Ltd., as a financial correspondent covering the Chicago Commodities Markets
from 1983-1984. He left to become a political reporter in Washington D.C. In
the winter of 1990, he took a leave from his investigative duties at the
newspaper and moved to Utah and Wyoming. He is the author of eight thrillers,
including Private Games, which he
co-wrote with James Patterson. He was an Edgar Award finalist, winner of the
W.H. Smith award for “Best New Talent,” and his debut novel, The Fall Line,
was named New York Times Notable Book of the year, a rare honor for a
debut. His next novel with Patterson,
Private Berlin, launches in 2013 and his next standalone novel, Rogue, launches in October 2012. He
currently resides in Montana with his family.
Nicky Cooper Browncame
late to this game we call writing. Growing up, up North, she was always praised
for her talents with her hands, rather than her mind, she harboured an artistic
flair often drawing and painting into the night. It wasn't until she moved
south to the Beautiful picturesque New Forest that she took pen to paper so to
speak. Now Nicky enjoys writing short stories and articles and has a funny and
light hearted style, but when it comes to her novels she displays a darker side
and a taste for psychological thrillers.
