Between the intriguing characters and deadly plot, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact moment that the reader will realize that they are no longer just reading this book, but they are personally involved in the complex mystery. Written in the noir tradition, yet relevant to today’s world, The Extinction Event is for anyone who misses the grittiness of Mickey Spillane and the wit of Raymond Chandler. This book is not to be missed.

When Jack Slidell is awakened in the middle of the night with the news that his business partner has been murdered, Jack has no idea that he will soon become the cop’s primary suspect. Determined to find the real killer, Jack sets off on a race against time to clear his name. However, he soon realizes that the twisted conspiracy that he is uncovering is bigger than just him – the whole world may be at risk and Jack is the only one looking for answers.
