I am so honored to have Laura Griffin Stop by today. She is here to talk to us about Far Gone, which is a WONDERFUL story. You may find my review here. Welcome Laura, I'm so happy to have you here today!
Thanks for inviting me to visit!
It’s been an exciting time with the release of my first hardcover book, FAR GONE. Holding the book in my hands for the first time was a joyful moment!
FAR GONE is the story of Andrea Finch, an Austin homicide detective who is on leave from her job when she gets a distress call from her younger brother in West Texas. She wants to ignore his plea for cash, but she thinks something is very wrong so she goes out to investigate. She soon meets FBI agent Jon North, who is working undercover to solve a murder that may be part of a broader plot... and he believes Andrea’s brother is involved.
The new book is a bit different from the Tracers series I have been writing lately. Both the main characters, Andrea and Jon, are new. But readers of the Tracers series will recognize a few familiar Tracers who play a role in the forensic aspects of the investigation. It was fun to weave some of my favorite characters from previous books into the story.
Writing FAR GONE was an adventure because I got to meet and interview all sorts of law enforcement people, from cops to FBI agents. I had fun writing the action scenes in the story, but I also enjoyed the romance between Jon and Andrea. From the very beginning, Andrea doesn’t trust Jon because she knows he’s investigating her brother... and yet she feels drawn to him anyway. I liked watching their romance unfold along with the mystery. I hope you will, too!
I’m giving away a signed copy of the book, so leave a comment if you’d like a chance to win!
