"Brendan DuBois is a fine novelist and easily the best short-story writer of his generation." --- Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author.
In the seventh book in the Lewis Cole series, magazine columnist and former Department of Defense research analyst Lewis Cole is covering an anti-nuclear protest when gunfire breaks out, injuring his journalist friend and killing a charismatic activist. Not content to let the professionals investigate this shooting, Cole begins to dig into the background of the murdered activist, as well as the anti-nuclear protesters who are gathering by the thousands on the New Hampshire seacoast, promising violent action in order to take over a nuclear power plant and halt its power production. But someone is also gunning after Cole, obstructing his investigation and making attempts on his life, as his inquiries bring him to question construction union members who favor nuclear power and the protesters who oppose it.
This special, expanded edition of "Deadly Cove" includes the following:
--- Author's forward, describing how he came up with the plot for the novel.
--- Author's afterward, listing "inside jokes" and hidden secrets contained within the novel.
--- A hard-to-find, previously published short story, "The Wearing of the Green," that takes place in Tyler Beach and features Detective Diane Woods investigating a double homicide.
"Suspenseful, satisfying...Well-drawn and sympathetic characters add to the story's authenticity. The cliffhanger ending will leave series fans anxious for the follow-up."--Publishers Weekly
