It's a pleasure to welcome Rick Mofina as guest blogger today. Sometimes we don't appreciate Canadian authors as much as we should, so this is my opportunity to introduce Rick. He brings his journalism background to his bestselling crime fiction. His latest book, The Panic Zone, features Jack Gannon, a crime reporter. Gannon also appeared in last year's Vengeance Road.
I'm going to turn it over to Rick to tell you more about his latest novel.
How I Wrote My New Thriller, The Panic Zone -
By Rick Mofina
My latest crime fiction novel, The Panic Zone, concerns the story of Emma Lane, a young mother who survives a car crash in Wyoming, which claims her husband and baby boy.
In the confusion she thinks she sees someone rescue her son. But in the hospital she's told she's enduring trauma and that her husband and baby are dead. A few nights later, while grappling with her grief, a stranger calls, telling her: "Your baby is alive."
Eventually, Jack Gannon, a wire service reporter based in New York City, helps her search for the truth about her baby. They learn that the tragedy may be tied to deadly conspiracy that reaches around the world with chilling implications and their pursuit becomes a panicked race against time.
Thank you, Rick. I think you've enticed many of us to check out the latest book that combines your experiences and your imagination, The Panic Zone.
