Interview The following interview with the author was conducted in May, 2016. Q – It seems as though this book follows the Control Series. A – That’s a question, right? Control ends with Annie having saved thousands of lives.
She had a lot of help, but she’s the hero. Even though bureaucracy takes its time, she gets her wish, serving on a Presidential detail, sort of. Q – And the book is set in the present? A – Yes, right now. It takes place over a few days before the party conventions. Q – How did you get the idea? A – Another what-if. I love ‘em. (Laughs) What if the Candidate is threatened by the people sworn to protect her? Q – A conspiracy combined with a murder mystery, right? A – Right. I’m not giving away how it all works, but the book opens with a terrorist confrontation, graduates to a devastating media problem for the campaign, then the main issue. Q – It sounds like it moves fast. A – Faster than anything I’ve written, so far. Q - Why should readers give this book a try? A – I love reading mysteries, private detective and political thrillers, and combining those genres in one book. Hopefully anyone who reads it will, too. It’s a crime thriller that leave you wrung out and satisfied.
And of course the heroine pays a life-changing price. Add a little helping of romance, and you’ve got a plot that twists and turns all the way to the end. Q – Are there prequels or sequels available? A – Yes, Annie McCarthy stars in the novels Illusion and The Greatest Game, Control and the Control Series. Please see my author page for those books. Q – Anything you would like to add?
