Riassunto: Growing up together, Shannon Murphy never hesitated to stand up and protect her best friend, Jill from bullies. One day, however, Shannon stands and protects others in her school along with Jill. Believing her football coach father has been murdered, she takes the gun of a dead policeman that was left behind at a scene of the crime and shoots the killer.Years later, as an adult, Shannon is a leasing agent at Sherwood Village apartments in Dallas, Texas. While taking care of her handicapped father and young son, the dynamic, thriving market keeps her busy. But everything grinds to a halt when a young resident is found murdered in her apartment, leaving Shannon, her family and the community in shock.After a second homicide victim is found at Sherwood Village, Detective Sergeant Lucas Manning goes undercover to expose the serial killer terrorizing the community. When a third victim is discovered, with the scene bearing striking similarities to the previous murders, Manning is sure he will have a long, involved investigation complete with media intrusion. What he hadn't suspected to occur was his strong attraction to Shannon. He'll do everything he can to solve the case and protect Shannon and her family.
Dall'autore: STAND AND PROTECT is the first book in a Thriller - Suspense Series. I didn't plan for it to be a series, however due to Character and Reader demand, the stories just keep flowing with the same charismatic and endearing characters that people relate to so strongly. The first book begins when Shannon was a feisty young girl in school. Due to violent circumstances, she has to use the gun of a dead policeman to shoot a criminal in her school and save her best friend, Jill. That day completely changed her life. Shannon grows up to be a timid, shy woman that is prone to panic attacks, until once again violence enters her life and a serial killer threatens those she loves. She meets Detective Luke Manning and even in the middle of life and death circumstances, they feel undeniable chemistry, which is obvious to everyone and enrages the maniac even more. The killer is there through out the book, but no one, that I know of - has ever guessed exactly which character it is until it is revealed near the end, when hidden truths are reveled in a shocking twist of events. Please email me and let me know, if you or someone you know ever does figure it out. Most of the main characters return in the second book: NICO'S GUILT, to be followed soon by SPY PLAY. I am easy to find on most social networks, including facebook, if you would like to stop by to say hello, or if you have any questions or requests. Due to readers suggestions, I have actually brought back some of the secondary characters in the third manuscript. Some how, many of my characters have developed a Fan Base of their own. : ) People say that if you love the Thrilling Series of Books by James Patterson or JD Robb, you will really enjoy these books! All the Best, KT Banks
