Putting It All On the Line
If you read any reviews of my third thriller novel, STOLEN, people tend to sum up the book’s big idea with a simple question. How far would you go to save the love of your life? I agree this question captures the story’s essence. The book begins with a devoted husband, John Bodine, confronting a terrible circumstance. His wife, Ruby Dawes, has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of skin cancer and he doesn’t have medical insurance to cover the cost of her life-saving treatment. After exhausting all legal means, John uses his computer smarts to steal another’s identity with the intent of committing medical fraud. Unbeknownst to John, the identity he’s stolen belongs to a psychopathic killer with a twisted mind for playing very twisted games. John and Ruby are soon roped into his demented world and things deteriorate rapidly from there.
