Book Description

A bond forged in battle...

Home from the deserts of Iraq, Nicholas Cross wants nothing more than to start over as a civilian. Together with his best friend, Thomas Abelard, a former US Army Ranger, Nicholas enjoys the quiet life—until a young actress's suicide is called into question. Nicholas and Thomas peel back the layers of her life and discover a woman in over her head.

A relentless enemy...

For Nicholas, however, the stakes turn personal as the mystery deepens and his past comes back to haunt him. The death toll rises as the two veterans encounter a ruthless foe who'll stop at nothing to protect a dark secret. Nicholas is forced to dodge hostile operatives, the police, and dangerous questions about his identity—and his past—as he tries to piece together the evidence and protect the last witness.

A secret worth killing for...

Nicholas and Thomas find themselves in a desperate race against time as they struggle to uncover the explosive truth behind...

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding read! December 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm often a hard sell for a new author. I tend to stick to names I've read before. However...Antigone's Fall took my breath away with the whirlwind tour of Puget Sound and the nearby neighborhoods! I am hooked and can't wait to see what happens next for Nicholas and Miranda. What a team! Military tactics, private eye stealth, and Pacific Northwest backdrop. Love it. I'm ready for Praetorian Agenda's release!

R. K. Macpherson, you have a new fan! Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Multi-Level Mystery/Thriller October 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This action adventure story hits the ground running and doesn't stop. This is a book that will catch your interest from the first page. The past and present storylines are both equally compelling. The characters are people that you would actually like to know ... I found myself caring about what might happen to them almost from the start. The dialogue is witty, smart and sometimes just down right funny.
I didn't want this book to end and was pleasantly surprised to see that another is on the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down... October 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
By the end of the first chapter, I was hooked, and didn't look at another book until I was done with this one (which is saying something, since I usually have 2-4 books going at a time). I enjoyed the descriptions, the dialogue, and the pacing -- I quickly felt immersed in the Tacoma of the book (and since I live near Tacoma, could readily recognize where things were happening). One of the things that make me really enjoy a story is when I can get lost in it -- and the day after finishing this one, I was wondering why I wasn't seeing anything in the news reports about what happened "yesterday" -- until I remembered that was just a good story I'd read.

There's a couple twists that caught me completely off-guard. If you like mystery/action, I'd definitely recommend this to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable thriller! October 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a fun read. I loved the settings and the details. I used to live in Tacoma, so it was fun to see a story take place there. The author definitely got the feel and details right. The dialogue was sharp and the pacing was nice. Never got bored and wanted to know more as we went on. Enjoyed a few unexpected twists!

I think the writing's somewhere above Clive Cussler, but below Tom Clancy. Definitely a great read. I can't wait for the next book!

More About the Author

Reading both The Hobbit and The Bourne Identity in kindergarten set R. K. MacPherson's mind permanently in the clouds. Spinning tales just came naturally after that. He wrote his first novel to impress a girl in college, which failed to win her heart, but kept his mind thinking about "What if..."

R. K. MacPherson draws upon a wide array of crazy adventures and careers in his writing, hoping to add as much authenticity as possible. He received his B.A. from Pacific Lutheran University and did graduate work in anthropology at Eastern New Mexico University. He has traveled and worked around the world, lived aboard a sailboat for two years, and is inordinately fond of spicy food. He currently lives in Japan where he's working on his next novel.
