Editorial Reviews


a fast-moving suspenseful novel . . . surprising twists andturns in a well-organized plot . . . Unlike James Bond, who escapes every sceneunscathed, Powers takes hard hits . . . abundance of droll humor among thecharacters is an added bonus. - Jim, avid reader
Payne writes in a clear, concise style and his attention todetail is second to none. - Pat Snyder.
I feel like I'm reading the likes of Baldacci, Patterson orConnelly. - Jim Meeks

From the Inside Flap

"He made bail last night while we were having dinner.""Oh, great! We'll never see him again.""Wrong," the detective said. "He's in the morgue.""Say what?""Someone bashed in the back of his skull."

J. Scott Payne is a product of the William Allen White School of Journalism at the University of Kansas. He began his career as a cub reporter at the Kansas City Star. But then came a sabbatical of sorts with the U.S. Army. He served as a counterintelligence investigator in Korea, Vietnam and, worst of all, Washington, D.C.

Upon returning to civilian life, he decided he'd had his fill of tropical weather. He therefore migrated to Michigan where he worked as a reporter and editor for a miscellany of publications. He and his wife, Jane, have retired to a West Michigan college town whence they keep in touch with three daughters, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren

Jane and Scott share their home with a short white dog and a long black cat who constantly fight or, perhaps, play -- it's difficult to say which.

Meanwhile, she tries to find time to paint while he wraps up his eighth novel, "To End All Wars." Having just turned 81, he believes he'll now retire for real.
