Here is the descriptive text:
The day begins like any other: Terry Rankin, sole proprietor of Rankin Personal Security Services in Orlando, Florida, accepts a private meeting with a potential client. Sheila Adamson is looking for a bodyguard to protect her from her abusive husband, but Rankin refuses to take the job until she begins divorce proceedings. Moments later, Mrs. Adamson is dead and Rankin is buried beneath the rubble of his house, knocked flat by a car bomb planted in the dead woman’s Jaguar. When he’s questioned by the local police, Rankin learns that Adamson’s attorney has also turned up dead, his Cadillac riddled with bullets. Suspecting there is more to these murders than a domestic dispute, he teams up with Orlando cop Cathy Diamond for a thrilling—and treacherous—adventure that will lead them deep into the heart of the Everglades and hot on the trail of a dangerous criminal. In Rankin’s sardonic bodyguard-turned-investigator, Gary Showalter has created a new hero for fans of hardboiled mysteries.
“The Big Bend” begins the Terry Rankin series of adventures in Florida. It is followed by “Hog Valley”, “Twisted Key” and “Lonesome Cove”. All are available in both paperback and Kindle format (except for “Lonesome Cove”, which is not yet out in paper).
If you do not own a Kindle you can download the Kinder Reader application for your Mac, PC or handheld device from Amazon at no fee. And then you can download lots and lots of free books to read – again, NO FEE. Can you beat that for a real deal???
Please do me a very big favor and be sure to post this on your social media page (Facebook, MySpace, etc) and let all of your friends know about the free download of “The Big Bend” via email or through your blog posts.
And please, one more itty-bitty little thing; please post a review for me on Amazon when you finish reading.
Have a great weekend!
