Jackie and I are thrilled to share the following Publishers Weekly review of Perception of Power:
Thomason’s heroic Florida cop, Clay Randall, gets into major trouble in his dramatic third outing (after 2010’s The Six O’Clock Rule) after a bizarre chain of events leads to tragedy. Clay, a commander with the Jacksonville Beach PD, happens to be in a convenience store when an elderly man in a wheelchair shoplifts some snacks. When Clay intervenes, the would-be thief flees the store into the street, only to be fatally struck by a concrete truck, which, in turn, slams into the SUV carrying Gina Starks, a close friend of Clay’s wife. Gina is killed instantly, and her young daughter is seriously injured. Clay’s inadvertent role incurs the wrath of Gina’s father, U.S. Senator Thomas Barclay, a leading contender for the White House, and places him in Barclay’s crosshairs. Barclay’s unscrupulous chief of staff, Lou Dunlop, eventually devises a fiendish scheme to ruin Clay, and the plot follows up the action-packed opening with even more surprising developments. The author’s four-plus decades in law enforcement lend the story verisimilitude. (BookLife) ... See MoreSee Less
It is a pleasure to follow the progression of the Clay Randall series. Really enjoy how the characters have developed and this latest book has plot twists and turns that make it hard to put down. Perception of Power opens fast and never slows.
