Sarah Broadhurst's view...

April 2009 Book of the Month.

Six seconds is the time between detonation and the bomb exploding. In this excellent thriller six seconds becomes real nail-biting stuff. The target is the Pope on a visit to the States, the plot is clever, tense and a cut-above the norm in this area.

Comparison: Robert Ludlum, Frederick Forsyth, Michael Connelly.

A vengeful woman who aches for her place in paradise. In Iraq, an aid worker whose husband and child were killed in a brutal attack, saves the life of an American – believing he can help her avenge her family’s death.

An anguished mother desperate to find her child. In California, a mother arrives to pick up her son from school, only to discover that her husband has taken their child and vanished without a trace.

“A perfect thriller, in every way. Very powerful and very, very clever.” — Nick Stone

About the Author

Rick Mofina

Rick Mofina is a former crime reporter and the award-winning author of several acclaimed crime novels. He grew up east of Toronto, in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. He began writing fiction in grade school. At age 15, he sold his first short story to a U.S. magazine. In his teens he hitchhiked to California and wrote a novel about the experience. He has held jobs ranging from working at a horseracing track to delivering cars to Florida, before he attended Carleton University where he studied Journalism, English Literature, and American Detective Fiction.

He landed his first news job as a summer student at the Toronto Star, the same paper that once employed Ernest Hemingway. Rick then embarked on a career in journalism that spanned three decades in several newsrooms. His freelance crime stories have appeared around the world in such publications as the New York Times, Penthouse, Reader's Digest, Marie Claire, The South China Morning Post magazine and The Moscow Times.

His reporting has put him face-to-face with murderers on death row in Montana and Texas. He covered a horrific serial killing case in California, an armoured car heist in Las Vegas, the murders of police officers in Alberta, flown over Los Angeles with the LAPD, and gone on patrol with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police near the Arctic. He's also reported from the Caribbean, Africa, Qatar, and Kuwait's border with Iraq.

His book, BLOOD OF OTHERS won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Novel; and the International Thriller Writers named his book, THE DYING HOUR (on-sale in the UK in September 2009), a finalist for an inaugural Thriller Award. His books have been praised by James Patterson, Dean Koontz, Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Lee Child, Nick Stone, Tess Gerritsen, and David Morrell.

Rick is based in Ottawa, Canada.
