If you are shopping for fans of David Baldacci, or if you are a fan yourself, here are three books that should be on your radar, all hailing from the great state of Texas.
1. The Blood Promise by Mark Pryor
The third book in the Hugo Marston series has the head of security for our Paris embassy, body guarding an American senator. When he goes missing, Hugo becomes involved with the politics of a current treaty connected to the French Revolution. A great political thriller that doesn’t preach an agenda.
2. Allegiance by Tom Abrahams
A political aide finds himself on the run after he uncovers a plan for state succession, using big oil and cutting edge science. Like Michael Crichton, Abrahams is skilled at taking a far-fetched premise and making it believable.
3. Capitol Offense by George Wier
A good ol’ boy trouble shooter gets a death row confession from an inmate who claims he blew up Vietnamese fishing boats for the current governor. This puts protagonist Bill on the wrong side of the law and in the middle of a political assassination. A fast moving, action packed thriller with a fun voice.
