First line of the book.

Toby Dirk snugged the smooth wooden stock of his Ruger .22 semiautomatic rifle tight against his shoulder.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Retired Inspector Jack Bertolino gets his first taste of the erratic nature of Hollywood when A-list producer, George Litton, options one of Jack’s recent cases for a film.

Jack is engaged as the film’s technical advisor, which stars It Girl Susan Blake. But more importantly, he’s on hand to keep a protective eye on Susan, who’s being harassed by a disturbing cyber-stalker.

But that’s not all that starts to turn Jack’s world upside-down. When a five-year-old girl is shot dead in her family’s living room, just blocks from where the movie is being filmed, Jack realizes there are threads connecting the movie, the murder, a brutal gang of brothers, and a terrifying body count.

Will Jack be able to find justice for the young girl and keep Susan safe? Or will this be his last and fatal trip to Hollywood?

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Jack Bertolino ~ tough, likeable, honest.

Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Anyone who likes gritty, realistic thrillers with a great cast of characters.

Your favourite line/scene.

Jack wasn’t optimistic. In his experience, if the shooting was gang-related, the community would be tight-lipped, afraid of retribution.

Their fear was reasonable, but Jack had ways of making people talk. If it was possible, someone would soon be held accountable for that little girl.
