The plane was a well-cared-for Cessna 182T owned by a retired American couple. Their bodies lay on the airstrip at their ranch in Mexico as their plane flew west toward the orange sunset.
Friday 56:
"A bomb exploded in the bar area when you were in the bathroom. You and another boy are the only survivors."
This week I am reading a book I got from Kindle First. Signature Wounds by Kirk Russell is a thriller from Thomas & Mercer. Here is the description:
While in Las Vegas on his way to a family Fourth of July celebration, FBI bomb expert Paul Grale hears a deep blast and sees the smoke rising. In an unfolding nightmare, Grale discovers his sister, brother-in-law, and many friends were caught up in the explosion. Grief stricken, he is pulled from the main bomb investigation to sift orphan leads. Quietly he begins a relentless search for the bomb maker.

When the FBI suspects his friend and disgruntled former drone pilot for the blast, Grale thinks they’re getting it all wrong. Propelled by deep personal loss and an intense need to do the right thing, he picks his way through the smallest of leads and into a maze of twists, turns, and sudden dead ends. When he uncovers another threat, time is already quickly running out. With the lives of so many at stake, Grale won’t let himself fail—and he won’t rest until there’s justice for his family.

Adrenalized, gripping, and all too timely, Signature Wounds brings terror to Vegas and introduces FBI special agent and bomb tech Paul Grale, a man whose specialized skill and fierce determination are a lethal combination.


  1. I like a story in which the police (or FBI) get it all wrong, which motivates one of the characters to find the truth.

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  2. It sounds exciting; today I posted about "Furiously Happy", a memoir bringing humor to her story of mental illness.

  3. Bodies in the first sentence, huh? The writer cut to the chase I see :) I like both of the excerpts even if the whole book doesn't sound like my cup of tea.
