Here is the blurb:

America loves John Cannon, its newest hero, and the President wants to present him with the highest civilian medal for bravery for saving the Annapolis midshipman from a terrorist plot to destroy them. While in Washington for the award ceremony, John unwillingly becomes an accomplice in another plan by the same group to attack the credibility of the US President and the stability of the worldwide oil market. There is no way out as John either becomes a traitor to America or causes thousands of innocent people to die if he refuses.

The second John J Cannon Thriller moves from a barrier Island off the coast of Texas to Washington DC, then to Northern California, and finally to Ecuador. John is on the receiving end of an offer he cannot, refuse. His avowed enemy Matt Jacobs now wants John to help him shake the reputation of the US in the world political arena and disrupt confidence in the government at home. If John refuses, Matt plans to murder innocent Americans including John’s latest relationship. John’s only way out is to pretend to go along with the plan and hope for a miracle.

Excerpt from Chapter one

The water rushes over my head. I’m sinking and don’t know why. With my breath held, I have trouble stopping the air from escaping since the pressure drives the air up and out. I try to keep my mouth closed, but the water pressure pushes the air out more and more. Will I pass out? In the distance, the light is dim. To rise to the surface in time might not be possible─I need to breathe right now. Toward ending the pain in my chest, my rambling mind rationalizes taking a deep breath—even knowing it will end my life. In conflict with the irrational thought of ending it, my body won’t let me suck in the water, as it fights to retain the little bit of oxygen left to fuel my brain.

The despair is nearly overwhelming, and my mind considers other ways to battle the feeling. What more could I have done with my life? The pressure becomes more intense, and I’m about to lose it all, and I decide I’ve lived the way I wanted and have no regrets. I close my eyes and hear only the roar of the sea. I’m so tired. Exhausted. Sleep will fix everything, and I want to give in.

His first novel, My GRL is available on Amazon and wherever e-books are sold


Ive read My GRL, and it’s a great book. I have every intention of reading His Revenge once I work my TBR list down a bit.

John is a versatile fellow, because he not only writes an intriguing thriller, he writes some great humor pieces. These are found on his blog, and are sometimes a serialized short story and sometimes the answer to a writing prompt. They usually involve a great piece of dialog. Here is my attempt at writing dialog as it appears in one of John’s posts. John is a master at this, so I’m probably just going to embarrass myself.

“Hey there, John.”

“Craig? What are you doing here?”

“You invited me to brunch, don’t you remember?”

“There is no brunch scheduled today. Sorry.”

“Let me get my invitation out. Nope, today is the day.”

“Let me see that… Look here, it says Book Launch.”

“Darned bifocals. I’ll come back in what, two hours?”

“For what?”

“Your book lunch, of course.”

“No, it says launch not lunch. See, there’s an extra vowel in there.”

“Whew! Good thing you caught that before your book launch. I’ll swing back by around twelve.”

“Yeah, that would be great, and can you bring a bucket of chicken?”

“Oh, it’s pot luck. I’ll be happy to pick some up.”


(Sorry John) Don’t hold my teasing against John. Check out both of his books and you’ll be glad you did.
