DARK WATERS, the first book in my Raisa Jordan thriller series, has been selected for Amazon’s January 12th “Wish List Reads Gold Box January Kindle Deal.”
What does that mean?
I did a little research on the “Gold Box Deals,” and I’ll admit, I’m still a little confused. There’s a lot of chatter, but finding the actual place where the deals appear on the Amazon website is a challenge. Suffice it to know that on January 12th, you can buy the kindle ebook version of DARK WATERS for only $1.99.
DARK WATERS is the first book in the Raisa Jordan series, and a 2016 Finalist for a Colorado Book Award, Colorado Author’s League Award and the Anthony Award for Best Crime Fiction Audio.
Raisa “Rae” Jordan, an agent for the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service, isn’t in Israel for more than a day before her predecessor is assassinated in a Tel Aviv square. Assigned to investigate, she must also protect Judge Ben Taylor and his teenage daughter, who may be the next targets. They are most certainly being threatened by a desperate cadre of terrorists with their sights set on the Secretary of State’s upcoming visit. But is an attack on the Secretary of State all that they have planned or is that just the beginning?
There are no protocols for this kind of a situation, and following the rules is exactly the kind of thing that could get the Taylors killed. To subvert an attack that could crush the fledgling peace in the Middle East, Jordan must trust her instincts and bring together a contentious team of agents from Israel, the U.S., and the Palestinian territories to uncover a conspiracy years in the making.
DARK WATERS received some great recommendations, but perhaps my favorite comes from the Rogue’s own Gayle Lynds, who was recently called out as “the queen of spy fiction” alongside Helen MacInnes in The Guardian :
