"Brendan DuBois is a fine novelist and easily the best short-story writer of his generation." --- Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author.
In his sixth book in the Lewis Cole series, mystery author Brendan DuBois takes a look at the special kind of madness that descends upon New Hampshire every four years during its presidential primary. But in this primary season, Lewis is set-up for the attempted assassination of a presidential candidate, and he is quickly put in the spotlight for this crime. With the Secret Service shadowing his every move, with his budding romance with a campaign volunteer in jeopardy, and with the threat of continued violence against him and the candidate, Lewis desperately tries to find out who set him up for the attempted killing, and who is still stalking him.
This special, expanded edition of "Primary Storm" 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 Final Catch," that takes place in Tyler Beach and features Detective Diane Woods along with journalists Paula Quinn and Rollie Grandmaison.
"In DuBois's stirring sixth Lewis Cole mystery (after 2004's Buried Dreams), the former Department of Defense employee, now a magazine writer in the small resort town of Tyler Beach, N.H., is preparing to quietly ride out the madness of a presidential primary. But when Cole is arrested for shooting at one of the leading candidates, he finds himself embroiled in a chilling and personally dangerous investigation. With his usual coolness and clarity of thought and action, he deals with the accusations, a dead body on his doorstep and politics at their worst. The snowy, cold New Hampshire winter forms the perfect backdrop to the twisting, surprising plot. By the end, readers will smile at the triumph of justice for even the most average of citizens.
