This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing Nothing to Hide
by J. Mark Bertrand
Bethany House Publishers (July 1, 2012)
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
J. Mark Bertrand lived in Houston, where the series is set, for fifteen years,
earning an MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Houston. But after
one hurricane too many he left for South Dakota. Mark has been arrested
for a crime he didn’t commit, was the foreman of one hung jury and served
on another that acquitted Vinnie Jones of assault. In 1972, he won an
honorable mention in a child modeling contest, but pursued writing instead.
ABOUT THE BOOK
A grisly homicide. An international threat.
The stakes have never been higher for
Detective Roland March.
The victim’s head is missing, but what intrigues Detective Roland March
is the hand. The pointing finger must be a clue–but to what? According
to the FBI, the dead man was an undercover asset tracking the flow of
illegal arms to the Mexican cartels. To protect the operation, they want
March to play along with the cover story. With a little digging, though, he
discovers the Feds are lying. And they’re not the only ones.
In an upside-down world of paranoia and conspiracy, March finds himself
dogged by injury and haunted by a tragic failure. Forced to take justice into
his own hands, his twisting investigation leads him into the very heart of
darkness, leaving March with nothing to lose–and nothing to hide.
My thoughts: I’ve really been looking forward to reading this book, the third in the Roland March series (and I hope not the last). Unfortunately, I have not yet received my review copy so have not had a chance to read it. But I wanted to share the book information and encourage others to check out this and the earlier books in the series, Back on Murder and Pattern of Wounds. If you enjoy detective stories such as Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch novels, you’ll enjoy these.
I’ll share my thoughts on Nothing to Hide once I’ve read it.
