Andrew Gross's second stand-alone thriller, Eyes Wide Open, publishes next month and to help promote it, HarperCollins is offering the author's first standalone, The Blue Zone, for just 99 cents (digital download only). And as a bonus, you'll receive an exclusive excerpt from Eyes Wide Open!
The Blue Zone is currently available to pre-order from Amazon.com (Kindle download link) and Barnes&Noble (Nook Book download link), with a publication date of Tuesday, June 7th. Prices can and do change on a moment's notice, so this offer may not be around very long.
Andrew Gross was James Patterson's co-author on a number of books before setting out on his own with The Blue Zone in 2007. He is also the author of three mysteries featuring Greenwich (Connecticut) police detective Ty Hauck.
In The Blue Zone, Kate Raab's life seems almost perfect: her boyfriend, her job, her family ... until her father runs into trouble with the law. His only recourse is to testify against his former accomplices in exchange for his family's placement in the Witness Protection Program. But one of them gets cold feet. In a flash, everything Kate can count on is gone.
Now, a year later, her worst fears have happened: Her father has disappeared—into what the WITSEC agency calls "the blue zone"—and someone close to him is found brutally murdered. With her family under surveillance, the FBI untrustworthy, and her father's menacing "friends" circling with increasing intensity, Kate sets off to find her father—and uncover the secrets someone will kill to keep buried.
