Summary

"A deftly crafted thriller that kept me turning pages---through politics, money, and murder---to the ending I didn't see coming." - Chris DeRose, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Fighting Bunch.

A political thriller, tied in to real events, about an apocalyptic threat to America that is ticking remorselessly in the background while Americans continue their daily routines, oblivious to the danger.

For years, China's spy agency has been watching the United States rack up trillions of dollars in debt, waiting for the right moment to weaponize that debt to collapse the American government and install a Communist puppet regime.

At the same time, suburban accountant Andrea Gartner has been an outspoken critic of the debt as a leader in the South Carolina state Republican Party.

When the United States elects President Earl Murray, he brings Andrea into his government as budget director to solve America's debt problem. But before the nameplate is even installed on her office door, China strikes, engineering an American debt crisis that brings the country to the brink of collapse. Government operations come to a screeching halt. With the American hegemon on its knees, China violently seizes the opportunity to fulfill its territorial ambitions in Taiwan and the South China Sea.

Thrust into the rapacious, cutthroat world of American politics and surrounded by crises on all sides, Andrea begins a desperate effort to save the United States. Arrayed against her are cynical politicians and belligerent military brass, some of whom just might be secret Chinese agents.

Will Andrea be able to keep the United States alive to fight another day? Or will America drown in a sea of red ink at the hands of the Chinese and see its democratic government replaced by a Chinese Communist puppet regime?

American life as we know it is about to be obliterated by a debt bomb. And the only person who can save the country is a suburban accountant.

    She sees his face all the time—eyes open, eyes closed, it doesn’t matter. When no one’s around, she lets herself sink into her fear. He came for her once; he could come for her again. 
    When a sixty-eight-year-old woman is found dead outside the hospital in a wheelchair with an anti-abortion sign strapped to its back, Detective Madison Knight expects it to be an open-and-shut case. On the surface, there are no signs of foul play, but the deeper she digs, the suspicious death turns into a homicide. Just as the victim is identified as Faye Duncan, two more bodies turn up—Faye’s niece and a homeless man. 
    Madison doesn’t buy that a serial killer is on the loose, despite the conviction with which her ex-fiancé and fellow detective try to convince their superior. She sees the vagrant as sadly nothing more than collateral damage in a much bigger picture—but what motive for murder could span generations? 
    As Madison wades through all the secrets and lies, she uncovers some shocking and heartbreaking truths. She had trust issues before, but this investigation will remind her of the cost—sometimes fatal—of trusting the wrong person. 
    Deadly Impulse is a fast-paced crime novel with twists and turns you’ll never see coming. Perfect for fans of police procedurals. Uncover clues, follow leads, and catch a killer like thousands of readers have done before you. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.
