Breaking Cover

Listen to J.D. Rhoades read the first chapter (mp3)

�Like [Lee] Child, Rhoades dishes out one airtight action scene after another, mixing in just enough character-building moments and holding our interest in a full cast of nicely developed supporting players. All that, and a Sam Peckinpah�like bloody, bravura finale that will leave even icy-veined thriller fans panting for breath.�
-Booklist

�Shamus-finalist Rhoades (The Devil's Right Hand) delivers a gripping stand-alone thriller�. The action escalates to a powerfully violent, powerfully satisfying conclusion.�
-Publisher�s Weekly

"Breaking Cover is one of those rare thrillers that combine smart, tense prose with a momentum that never quits. J.D. Rhoades revs this baby into action from the get-go and never eases up on the throttle."
-Tess Gerritsen,
NY Times bestselling author
of THE KEEPSAKE

"This book flat-out rocks! J.D. Rhoades -- the king of redneck noir -- jams down the accelerator on page one and never touches the brake pedal. If Breaking Cover doesn't make your heart beat faster, see a doctor; you may be dead."
- Sean Chercover, author of
BIG CITY BAD BLOOD
and TRIGGER CITY.

"I read this book so fast my fingers have blisters. Hypnotic as a cobra's stare and twice as mean. J.D. Rhoades is a master."
�Marcus Sakey, author of
AT THE CITY�S EDGE

"Breaking Cover won't surprise J.D. Rhoades' fans, who already know just how good he is, but it should win him many more. A breath-taking pace, paired with a sure sense of character and place, makes this book another winner. Rhoades' star on the mystery scene is rising almost as fast as his own stories rocket across the page."
�Laura Lippman,
NY Times bestselling author
of ANOTHER THING TO FALL
