More About the Author

Carolyn has had a long and extremely interesting road to become a bestseller.

When she head to veterinary school those many years ago she had no idea decades later she would be writing controversial historical thrillers, gut wrenching mysteries and roller coaster-style action/adventure tales!

Born in San Francisco and raised in the beautiful Napa Valley, Carolyn always had an overactive imagination. As a child you could usually find her dragging the neighborhood children out to the haunted barn to make her Nancy Drew-style audio tapes. Oh and did she mention, there was an entire life-sized recreation of the nativity scene in the rafters? Yeah, that wasn't just a little creepy.

Which of course was great practice for writing such blockbusters as Plain Jane: A Patterson-style thriller with a dash of Hannibal and 30 Pieces of Silver: An Extremely Controversial Historical Thriller.

Carolyn is honored to have a seven book contract with Amazon's mystery and thriller imprint, Thomas & Mercer along with being one of the eight books during the inaugural launch of Amazon's new Serial program (9th Circle).

With over 250,000 books sold, Carolyn now lives on a beautiful lake in the Pacific Northwest where the fog rolls in over the water, snuffing out all signs of life around her. Yep, she still loves the creepy!

Oh yeah, these black ops non-coms are charmed to the max, but hey, that makes it all the more fun. These resourceful characters slide, roll, fall, rocket or get dragged by their fingernails from cliffhanger to cliffhanger but their wit, humor and audacity make credibility a non-issue. The synergy of talents and personality make it all work...somehow. The Betrayed Series is strictly for those seeking an armchair adventure where you can root for the underdogs and bust a gut laughing. Brava!

This author seriously needs to have an editor take a whack at the grammar in this book. While I enjoyed the story and characters, and found it a real page turner, the story seemed to be one long explosion. There was little in the way of build up to the excitement. It was running at top speed from page one. Not necessarily a bad thing. It did keep me turning the page despite the impossible feats the characters perform. Eventually I spent more time saying, "Seriously?" than enjoying the story. What is it they say about suspending disbelief? Yeah, kind of lost this fairly early in the story.

That being said, I did enjoy the story and kept reading to the very end.

The biggest complaint I have with the books is the fact that not a page went by that I did not have to stop reading and mentally edit the sentence structure in order for the story to make sense to me. There were occasional spelling errors, though they were few and far between. But having a character with a doctorate say, "All's we have to do is . . ." is not only distracting, but laughable. "All's?" Seriously? And having all the characters use that colloquialism (and others) shows some difficulty in maintaining characters' distinct personalities, education and life experience through their dialogue. Sometimes any character can be visualized as saying any portion of the conversations. Lastly, I understand the concept of keeping sentences short to move the story along faster, but they at least need to be sentences for the most part. The occasional phrase standing alone can be a great narrative tool, but having complete sentences chopped up into short phrases is distracting and irritating to the reader. At least it was to me.

I really enjoyed this series. It is well written, good plots, great characters, lots of action and nice sense of humor. Character development was well crafted from book to book. Still looking forward to reading Shiva.

In order to have the complete flow of the action of the Betrayed Series, one must own The MISSIONS. They are the pre- and post- sequels to 30 PIECES, HAVOC AND SHIVA. See my review of SHIVA for the correct sequence to read the Betrayed Series.

This collection was my introduction to McCray. It has everything a book should have: action, suspense, and a little romance. McCray's method of writing is daring yet she pulls it off beautifully.

Wow. There is not one page without action and humor. I just loved Lopez. I couldn't put this book down. I read the whole series in about the same time it takes me to read one book. I will definitely be getting more of this author

I stumbled across Carolyn McCray totally b accident, and have now read several of her books. Her writing style is easy to follow yet reminded me of many of my favorite scone fiction and fantasy writers. I am so glad to have found her!!!

What is this book about?
Well I only read the first one...30 Pieces of silver. Basically in a nutshell its the search for the bones of Jesus Christ. It gets a little crazy along the way with fast cars and RPG's and exploding everything but its a fun read. If your religiously sensitive I would avoid it.
