Time pull back the sheet on the cover of my next book, SAVING GRACE.  I can’t say too much about the book other than it’s the follow-up to PAYING THE PIPER.  Scott Fleetwood and Tom Sheils are back.  The book will be in January.  You can preorder it already.

The story goes like this:

Former reporter Scott Fleetwood and his family are still recovering from the aftermath of tangling with the notorious kidnapper, the Piper, when another kidnapper grips the city. The Shepherd announces to the San Francisco Independent that he has snatched a young girl from a vacationing family. Other than money, he has only one other demand—he’ll only talk to Scott. The request brings in Special Agent Tom Sheils and his team to work the case and watch over Scott. The Shepherd promises the girl’s safety as long as Scott follows the rules of his game. Forced to trail the kidnapper’s twisting lead—and haunted by a previous victim he failed to save—Scott is desperate to keep the past from making a brutal comeback.

But just when Scott and Sheils think they’re winning and that it will all be over soon, the Shepherd ups the stakes. Scott begins to realize he’s a pawn in a scheme that runs deeper than greed…and colder than death.

I hope you’ll check it out.   🙂

    Woo Hoo!! I’m with Barb, that’s definitely worthy of a preorder. Poor Scott! You’re so mean to him, you never give him a break 😀

    I meant to say, I love the cover! That cutout of the little girl and her ponytail with the blood red background is perfect and perfectly scary at the same time.
