This military thriller marks Australian author David Rollins U.S. debut, and you’ll quickly see why he took his own country by storm. In The Death Trust he creates an imperfect, globe-trotting, wise-cracking hero in Vin Cooper that you willingly let into your head. Race through this “white-knuckle read on par with anything that James Patterson or Nelson DeMille might offer” (Orlando Sentinel) and you won’t have to wait long for Vin’s next adventure, A Knife Edge hits shelves 3/24.
Here are the facts:
The hero: Vincent Cooper. That is Major Vin Cooper, Special Agent in the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Once a star agent, he’s been scarred by battle and a recent divorce.
The situation: Cooper’s been assigned—reluctantly by the CO—to investigate the bizarre death of a decorated four-star general who happens to be the son-in-law of the Vice President. It will either be his biggest victory, or the end of his career.
A small sampling: “I’m not good with flying. Not anymore. Not since Afghanistan. But they’re into it with a passion in the USAF, as you might expect.”
What others have said: “An all-too-believable story about power, corruption, and cover-up that has shocking international consequences. … Strong characters, nonstop action, and superb suspense…Vin Cooper has a powerful, true voice that never wavers.” —Nelson DeMille
