Today Amazon offers you to buy the following book: Shell Games: A John Marquez Crime Novel by Kirk Russell just for $1.99.
The discovery of thousands of empty abalone shells and two murdered divers sends Lieutenant John Marquez’s poaching investigation in a new and very risky direction. Former DEA agent and now head of a special operations unit of the California Department of Fish and Game, Marquez learns he himself has been targeted as the next victim. Stalking him is Kline, a vicious drug smuggler turned abalone poacher who has a vendetta against Marquez. John Marquez is supposed to protect wildlife, not solve murders, but the only way he can break the multi-million-dollar abalone-smuggling ring, as well as save his own life, is to find and stop Kline. A fast-paced crime novel set along the majestic Northern California coastline, Shell Games introduces a tough, complex, and appealing hero and a masterful new series.
Here are some reviews on this book:
“You know as you read this one that you are on to something good. Kirk Russell comes out of the gate with a story brimming with fresh characters and artful prose. Shell Games announces the start of what I think will be a great career.” - Michael Connelly
“Excellent…a compelling plot, fully realized characters, white-knuckle suspense, and unusual yet accessible settings. What truly sets it apart, though, is Kirk Russell’s vigorous, lovely, unadorned prose. Shell Games marks the debut of a substantial new talent in crime fiction.” - John Lescroart
“Shell Games integrates spellbinding suspense into a wonderfully unpredictable plot that holds the reader hostage to the very last page.” - Ridley Pearson
