STRATAGEM Chapter 20

“WE’VE GOT TO GO,” Derek said to Paige. As soon as Mom’s friend drove away, he went back to the living room.
“It’s all right, Derek,” Mom said, “That was just—”
“Is Dad’s car still in the garage?”
“It’s not registered. Derek, what’s going on?”
“There’s something about your friend Maggie. Something in her eyes I think I saw back in New York with all the bizarre events. Can’t explain right now, please just trust me. Is there room to park the Ford I drove here in the third garage space?”

COVER REVEAL for my next release (and how to get it free!)

I’m pleased to announce a project unlike I’ve ever done before. Together with bestselling thriller writer Jack Patterson, I’ve embarked on a new history-bending series which will rock your speculative imagination. THE FÜHRER’S DAUGHTER is an alternate history series of ebooks presented very much like a television series.
