About the Author

Pete P. J. Grondin was born in Sandusky, Ohio in 1956 to Nicholas and Patricia Grondin. He is the seventh of twelve children, evenly split; six boys and six girls. His Father passed away in June of 1994 and his Mother lives in Sandusky, Ohio. The family moved around a number of times when Pete was young; from Sandusky, Ohio to Bay City, Michigan, then to Maitland, Florida. They finally settled in the small rural community of Zellwood, Florida. At age 22, he moved back to Sandusky and worked at a retail department store at the Sandusky Mall where he met his wife, Debbie. They were married in January, 1984 and have two children. He joined the US Navy in the Nuclear Power Program and served on the ballistic missile submarine, USS John Adams. After being discharged from the US Navy in 1989, he moved his family back to their hometown of Sandusky in northern Ohio. He was elected to the Sandusky City Commission, serving a single term from 1993 to 1997. He works as a project manager in the IT department of a major electric utility. His current novels are A Lifetime of Vengeance and A Lifetime of Deception. He is in the process of writing his third McKinney Brothers novel, tentatively titled A Lifetime of Exposure.

Format: Paperback
Our service men put their very lives on the stake for the United States. All those who live here owe them a debt of gratitude. Unfortunately, there are predators preying on their vulnerability and they must be stopped.

Pat and Joe are brothers with a past. due to poor choices, a dear sister-in-law dies and she takes the will to live from Pat and Joe's brother Mike. While Pat and Joe do everything they can to serve justice to those responsible for their sister-in-law's murder, Mike slips into depression and eventually kills himself. Pat and Joe's family is never the same.

Joe and Pat both have military training and Joe is still in the reserves. When the predators kill a serviceman, Joe is called to investigate the deaths. Unfortunately, it is a bad time for his family. Pat and Joe's father has a heart attack and is in critical condition. Joe leaves for duty and then is informed that his girlfriend's father died. Joe focuses on his investigation and risks alienating the woman he loves.

The stakes keep getting higher as the body count increases with every serviceman targeted. Joe enlists Pat's help and calls up old friends along the way.

Fast paced and intelligent, adult readers should enjoy A Life Time of Deception.

If ever we are in need of someone to track down the "bad guys", we would definitely want the McKinney brothers around! P.J. Grondin's first book "A Lifetime of Vengeance" was a winner all the way,and this one is even better, if possible!
Joe and Pat McKinney are ex-military men who are called upon to help solve the mystery of who is taking advantage of our boys in uniform, enticing and robbing them of all their worldly belongings. But when it involves murder, they must step up the pace and catch them before more dead bodies show up.
It's a fast-paced thriller and the characters are so well-drawn, we find ourselves becoming sympathetic with the main perpetrator because of her mean upbringing. You are in for one heck of a ride and a surprise ending that you never see coming! This is the book for readers who love edge-of-your-seat suspense thrillers. Highly reccommended.

Format: Paperback
P.J. Grondin, formerly a Navy serviceman aboard a nuclear submarine, has written a fast-paced thriller packed with real details about life in the military. Main characters Joe and Mike McKinney put their military training to the test tracking down a couple of sociopaths who have dreamed up an ingenious scheme to defraud American servicemen. The stakes get higher when fraud leads to murder. Then another pair of schemers with ties to the first two get involved. With no regard for human life, the criminals murder anyone who might get in their way. For a while Joe and Mike seem to be one step behind the killers at every turn. Then they and their team of law enforcement officials get a break and finally unravel the vicious scheme. A twist at the end suggests more to come.
