BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Gun Kiss by Khaled Talib


Gun Kiss
by Khaled Talib


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE:   Thriller


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:


The United States media is abuzz with news of the mysterious disappearance of Hollywood movie star, Goldie St. Helen. 

Ex-Delta Force Blake Deco receives a tip from a Mexican friend that a drug lord, obsessed with the beautiful actress, is holding her captive in Tijuana.

With the help of a reluctant army friend, Blake mounts a daring rescue.

What he doesn’t expect is to have feelings for Goldie—or that a killer is hunting them.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT

Clad in tactical black, Blake rested on his chest in the dark chaparral. He watched his curly-haired friend beside him maneuver the tiny dragonfly drone with his phone. The luminous screen showed its flight path toward Dai Lo’s hacienda in the northeastern outskirts of Tijuana, nothing around it for miles.


The drone sent back images of the 375,000 square feet compound, including some of Dai Lo's men patrolling. It hovered in front of the three-floor mansion built with stacked balconies and double-hung windows. It then swooped down to a porch with three tall columns under a pediment. Finding no entry point, Jack raised it up again.


“I’m going to circle behind,” Jack said.


“Do that,” Blake responded.


“You going to kill Dai Lo?” Jack asked.


“Not unless I have to. I’m not an assassin,” Blake said.


“So why did you give Chavez the impression you will?”


“If Chavez knew what I was thinking, he wouldn’t give me the weapons. Then how are we going to save the actress?”


“You better know what you’re doing, Blake.”


“If you still want to go on that European tour, start thinking positive.”


The tiny drone went around the mansion and flew past a lit pool, buffeting over a garden and an annex connected by a sheltered catwalk. It moved sideways until it came to a lit corner window on the third level. The visual zoomed closer to the windowsill and sent back an image that left both men recoiling with gasps.

    Not my usual genre, but it really sounds intriguing; so much so, that I’m going to buy and read it.

    1. Hi Renee, thank you. I try to develop different styles in my writing, adding a bit of this and that. Gun Kiss is slightly different from the rest of my works; I'd say it's more fun and breeze. I hope you enjoy the story.
