Nothing To Hide

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Nothing to Hide
Bethany House Publishers (July 1, 2012)
J. Mark Bertrand

J. Mark Bertrand lived in Houston, where the series is set, for fifteen years,
earning an MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Houston. But after
one hurricane too many he left for South Dakota. Mark has been arrested
for a crime he didn't commit, was the foreman of one hung jury and served
on another that acquitted Vinnie Jones of assault. In 1972, he won an
honorable mention in a child modeling contest, but pursued writing instead.

You will want to visit Bertrand's website, which can be found HERE.

A grisly homicide. An international threat.
The stakes have never been higher for
Detective Roland March.

The victim's head is missing, but what intrigues Detective Roland March
is the hand. The pointing finger must be a clue--but to what? According
to the FBI, the dead man was an undercover asset tracking the flow of
illegal arms to the Mexican cartels. To protect the operation, they want
March to play along with the cover story. With a little digging, though, he
discovers the Feds are lying. And they're not the only ones.

In an upside-down world of paranoia and conspiracy, March finds himself
dogged by injury and haunted by a tragic failure. Forced to take justice into
his own hands, his twisting investigation leads him into the very heart of
darkness, leaving March with nothing to lose--and nothing to hide.

My Thoughts About The Book:
If you were to look up the word brilliant in the dictionary, I have no doubt you'd find J. Mark Bertrand's photo there.  I am so excited about discovering this author.  Nothing to Hide is the third book in the Roland March Mystery series...the previous books are Back on Murder and Pattern of Wounds.  I reviewed Pattern of Wounds and you can read that review HERE.
While any of the books can be read alone, your experience with Bertrand will be richer by reading the series as a whole.  I'm not ready to let go of Roland March (protagonists in this series)!  Bertrand weaves a story full of twists and turns with intrigue and suspense on every page.  He keeps you turning the page until the very last one.  My daughter has started reading the first novel in this series, Back on Murder.  When she picked it up night before last, I told her:  "Don't start that book right before bed, unless you intend on being up all night!"  Once you begin a Bertrand novel, you won't be satisfied until you've finished it!

Happy Reading,
