2018 is shaping up to be another multi-book year for literary powerhouse Iris Johansen, who is already slated to release new books in both her Kendra Michaels (Double Blind) and Eve Duncan (Shattered Mirror) franchises. On top of those releases, Johansen will also be treating readers to an all-new standalone crime thriller called Vendetta this fall, and we’ve got all the nail-biting plot details below.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a new explosive, compelling thriller.
With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon’s final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: to keep his daughter, Rachel, safe at any cost. But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic in Guyana is attacked by Huber―the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months. Brandon and Catherine Ling, Rachel’s longtime ally and fierce protector, are determined to keep Rachel out of danger, but she knows that it’s impossible to stay hidden when Max Huber wants you dead.
As Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a nuclear explosion that will lay waste to the west coast, they also fight a growing attraction to each other – an attraction that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself. In this gripping, fast-paced novel full of dark secrets and tangled lies, one thing is clear: everyone has a vendetta, and no one will rest until they get their revenge.
Shattered Mirror, Johansen’s first new release of the year, and the 24th book in her Eve Duncan series, comes out on April 24th. Three months later, Double Blind, the sixth Kendra Michaels book, which Johansen co-authored with her son, Roy Johansen, will hit bookstores on July 17th. Vendetta will follow both releases and is currently scheduled to come out on October 23rd. All three titles are currently available for pre-order wherever books are sold.
