Book Description

Harper Knox has ripped up his family's cherry orchard in eastern Washington State and planted grape vines, hoping that a contemplative life making wine might help him conquer his debilitating battle with PTSD. But on the other side of the state in Seattle, the Singularity Summit, a conference exploring exponentially growing technologies, has many reeling in fury, and protesters are taking over the city. A man Harper has been fighting alongside since Fort Bragg shows up at the vineyard offering a generous payday if Harper will join a team charged with protecting the keynote speaker. Hungry for the cash and the danger, Harper agrees to lend his expertise. When people start dying though, Harper and a woman named Francesca must risk their lives to find the killers and save Seattle.


As much a love story as it is a gripping thriller, Turn Or Burn, driven by the wonderfully cynical Harper Knox, will keep you up late into the night.


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Boo Walker spent his College of Charleston years and a few after in Nashville as a banjoist and songwriter for the avant-garde punchgrass band, The Biscuit Boys. Some hand problems knocked him out of the game, and he stumbled into a position with a short term equity trading firm based out of Charleston, SC. To feed his ravenous muse, he began writing his first novel, Lowcountry Punch. Around that time, what started as a passion in wine became a neurosis.

 After six years of the Wall Street thing, Boo decided it was time to end his sedentary, computer-driven lifestyle. He grew out a handlebar mustache and moved clear across the country into a double-wide trailer situated on 5 acres of Malbec vines just down the road from Hedges Family Estate on Red Mountain in Washington State. The Hedges family took him in and taught him the art of farming and the old world philosophies of wine. He now lives on a gentleman's farm on Red Mountain with his wife and son.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whiny Misogynist "Hero" Needs To Grow Up August 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So. Our protagonist is supposed to be hard core super action hero. I don't know if that ever actually happens because I ditched this rubbish long before the book got around to any action sequence..

And here is why. Protagonist meets female member of team. Asks her innocuous question. Female team member says "Look, not interested in a relationship". Protagonist throws tantrum, sneering about her having tickets on herself blah blah, ending "I had humiliated her as if I had flipped up her skirt". My eyebrows went up but I figure "maybe the character got burned once and redeems himself" - I keep reading.

What follows -
Protagonist makes snide comments and insults her when they next meet.
Protagonist congratulates self and the female team member because they "both" manage to be professional enough to overcome their differences. Probably easier when you are NOT the one being "humiliated" and insulted, surely? The only one displaying any type of professionalism was the woman..
Protagonist runs into her at gym, snipes at her. Gosh, what a surprise. Oh - and checks her out. (Remember how out of line she was thinking he was interested in her as a woman. Uh-huh.)
Protagonist runs into her in hall, snipes at her. Again.
Protagonist has "introspective" moment wondering why he is such a lousy human being when it comes to women, excuses it with "I know I shouldn't blame my mother for abandoning me, after all she didn't really abandon me,, she died. But it felt like abandonment and thus I ill treat all women." WTF?
And this is the kicker - Protagonist is now interested in her and wants to date her - Ah, what? Didn't protagonist have a psychotic meltdown, abusing her and "humiliating" her because she predicted he would do this?

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Boo! February 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved it and couldn't put it down (except when I wanted to throw it across the room). I cringed through most of it, not just because of the physical punishment Harper took but because his emotions were so f---ed up. Geez I wanted to hate him, but couldn't quite get there. But seriously, could he have been more of a coglione? Loved Roman, too bad he didn't get to go along for the roller coaster ride. I'm sure he could have saved the day long before ... Well, I won't give away the story. This is one of those books that you toss it on the floor, go pour yourself a glass of wine (Red Mountain if you have it) then go wrestle with the dog for the book and keep reading. Highly recommended for anyone who loves someone who has seen the ugly side of war and came out the other side. Or for romantic fools. Bravo, Boo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Three and a half stars. August 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really wish they would allow the half stars. it's better than a three star book, but not quite four stars. Mostly I found the main character a little too indulgent of his own pity party regarding the loss of his friends, and his mental health issues. I do find it unlikely that he gets over his relationship phobia, and loner mentality in a couple of rolls in the hay. Those are the reasons I wouldn't give it four stars. Based on the fast pace, storyline and plot development (although it does get a bit weird) it is well done. I might read this author again.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Turn' each page, 'Burn' the day. March 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I love to read, so when I received a copy of Boo's book, I dove right in. The characters jump off the pages, Boo writes in a way that pulls you into the world he's telling you about. I don't think I could handle all the action and reaction these people deal with from page to page, it's a race! At first you'll hate one character, then you'll like him, then you'll want to be him. I especially like the way the story unfolded, you don't get muddled down by semantics but very enlightened on culture and combat. A great read for anybody who likes action, romance and a twist with creepy Kool-Aid drinking cultists. "Turn or Burn" will keep you occupied for hours on end.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Thrill Ride! September 3, 2014
By Mariann
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Action packed suspense with a high tech background, this story hits the ground running and doesn't stop until all threats are resolved. Kudos also to the editor as I could not find any writing errors. The book does have a few sexually explicit scenes but they can be easily skimmed over. I'd certainly read more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twist AND Turns Galore May 30, 2014
By LHR
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Crazy yet intriguing twists and turns from the get go! Boo's layered plot paired with great central and side characters makes this an exciting, confounding and fun read. As a sailor, let me say that the writer does a terrific job throughout of tacking like a seasoned captain on the open ocean with constantly shifting wind AND water conditions.
