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
Bruce Thomason is an excellent writer. I would compare him to John Grisham in the way he writes, and I especially enjoyed all the local references to the story line. You really feel like you are right there! I really enjoyed reading the book (Body Toll)!
