It’s an exciting week here at WMG! Our offices are filled with workshop attendees learning more about the book biz, and our newest novel of the year officially releases tomorrow.
The SF thriller Snipers, by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is a fantastic new addition to the WMG family. Part time travel, part alternate history and all thriller, it’s a must-read.
Here’s the premise:
The Carnival Sniper—as famous as Jack The Ripper. And like Jack The Ripper, never caught, his identity lost to history.
In 1913, the Carnival Sniper terrorized Vienna, murdering the famous and not-so-famous alike. Police Detective Johann Runge never caught the Sniper and his failure defined the rest of his life.
In 2005, bestselling crime writer Sofie Branstadter receives permission to use modern forensic investigative techniques on the Sniper’s victims. She believes she can figure out the identity of the Sniper, but she needs the help of Runge’s great-grandson, classical pianist Anton Runge.
Together the two of them plunge into a world of scientific evidence and fantastic clues, all leading to one unbelievable conclusion.
And it is. It really is.
The cover looks pretty darned good, too, if I do say so myself <grin>. I love it when a project comes together.
So, check it out. You can buy the ebook on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple, Sony, or Smashwords. The print version is available, too, from your favorite bookseller, and our partner Audible has the audiobook release.
Reviews have already started pouring in.
RT Book Reviews says: “Chilling murders, mind-blowing suspense, a touch of time travel and a bit of romance combine to a thought-provoking, entertaining vacation from reality.”
Dave Dickinson of Astroguyz calls it “a fast paced whodunit,” and says: “Snipers is an excellent amalgamation of history, thriller, mystery & science fiction.”
Bill Crider calls Snipers “a fast-moving thriller” and says, “the ending implies that a sequel is in the works. I’ll be reading it.”
We hope you’ll be reading it, too.
