Publisher: Tantor

Page count: 379

The Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico washes a cache of doomsday weapons onto a Mexican beach: bombs filled with VX nerve gas mixed with anthrax, invented by the Nazis during World War II and perfected by the United States to use in the Cold War. The bombs soon fall into the wrong hands and create an unstoppable opponent. Only one Chicago Police detective has a chance of preventing those bombs from being used on American soil.

Reeling from the recent murder of her husband as well as allegations of police misconduct, Detective Superstition “Sue” Davis is thrown into an undercover assignment. She must infiltrate the Mexican narcotics cartel responsible for the death of her husband in order to get close to the cartel’s sociopathic enforcer, Jiminez “Jimmy” Garcia.

But when the entire Garcia family is killed in Mexico by a U.S. Special Forces raid gone wrong, Garcia will stop at nothing to get vengeance, including triggering newly acquired bombs on American soil. Superstition’s assignment quickly becomes more dangerous than planned as the threat of a terrorist attack looms closer.

“A fireball of awesome!” —Joshua Corin, award-winning author of Cost of Life

“Tension and turmoil add up to high-stakes suspense as the characters are skillfully played across a global chessboard. Written like a born bard of old, you won’t be disappointed. But be warned, treachery comes from all directions, even those that cannot be seen.”—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Patriot Threat

Review: THE FURY by Shane Gericke

THE FURY is hard-hitting, hard-charging, thriller action, and from the violent reader's hook right to the end, it never lets up. This is a heart in mouth, hold your breath read. I seldom recommend novels be filmed--but if THE FURY were made a movie, it'd be a blockbuster hit, without a doubt. If you want never-quit-action and an incredibly strong female protagonist, from an author who knows whereof he writes, you'll find it right here.

Caution: strong violence and tragedy [not all fictional]


  1. I should read this. I live on the Gulf Coast and the oil catastrophe is still being felt here. We get a lot of things deposited on shore after hurricanes so this actually a plausible scenario.
