One of the best-kept secrets in the publishing business is how many authors use Amazon to publish their work. The number of published Amazon books is around 3 million plus, but the number of authors is not known. Just using basic math suggests there are 3 million authors assuming one book per author, but many of us have more than one published Amazon book ( I have 28). So, I arbitrarily use the 1 million figure when doing comparisons.
With a million authors fighting for attention, how does one break out of the pack?
The thriller that launched lawyer Kate Lange into the hearts of a quarter of a million readers–and into the hands of a serial killer…
Haunted by the death of her sister and wounded by her ex-fiancé’s accusations, lawyer Kate Lange throws herself into her new career at a high-powered law firm.
When the grandmother of a lonely private school student seeks her counsel, Kate thinks it’s just another custody case. But then the teen is brutally murdered. And it isn’t only Kate who wonders if her legal advice led to the girl’s death.
Put on notice by Randall Barrett, the firm’s charismatic managing partner, Kate must fight for her career, her reputation–and for redemption.
Jaxon Jennings, private eye and brand new father, sees the world in a new light. One where he and his wife, Victoria, can raise their young daughter sheltered from the sins of this world, from his own sins and past mistakes. He has responsibilities and priorities. He has a new life. And his daughter Michelle is the center of it.
So, when a pro
minent local business owner—who had hired Jaxon for his private investigative services—ends up with his throat cut, the victim of a killer whose methods seem familiar to a case Jaxon had put to bed over twenty years ago, Jaxon’s past, once again, rears its ugly head to haunt him.
Reynolds Maubry, a psychopath who used a short, curved blade to take his victims’ lives, was serving a life sentence in Virginia. Jaxon had seen to that as a young homicide detective in Washington DC. Maubry’s methods were distinct and the evidence he left behind, unique. So, how could he be in sunny north Florida, taking lives again?
A copycat could be the only answer. But when Jaxon discovers that things are not as neat and tidy as they seem, he must face the mounting evidence that he and his family are in danger. And from a place he would never have suspected.
Jaxon badly wants to live this new life. But he can’t escape his past sins. To keep himself and his family safe, he must sin again. But who will survive?

Julia Bagal’s life has hit rock bottom. A murder in her duplex, a missing body, and then, her hated supervisor is strangled. Only this dead body was found in Julia’s cubicle.
Over the course of the past few months, I’ve received numerous emails, Facebook messages, and tweets asking about the reading order for the Jake Pendleton series books. Some confusion might be that on my website the latest release is listed first, putting them in reverse order. I have also had readers ask which Chuck Barrett book they should read first. And a few who have asked which is my favorite. Hopefully, I can answer these questions and set you on a path to enjoyable reading.
Imagine a world:
—Where global banking systems are locked down and held for ransom.
—Where all cellular and land line communications are shut off.
—Where global transportation is halted. Airlines, shipping, trains, automotive…
—Where hospital rooms are hacked and life support systems disabled.
—Where all defense satellites are rendered inert.
—Where power grids across the globe are shut down.
Check it out, my first Amazon review of #DISRUPTION by lq— A FIVE-STAR!
“Loved this book! It takes a basic premise: that everyone has been hacked and is divided by those that know it and those that don’t know it. From that premise, the author has created a complex thriller spanning continents and surrounding the ultimate hack.
“For fans of Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum, Disruption is an absolute yes.”
“Things that thriller novels are not: politically correct. Things that thriller novels are: fast-paced, sweat-inducing, heart-pumping. Disruption, the latest shot of adrenaline from best-selling author Chuck Barrett, gets top marks in both categories. Disruption is true to its genre and delivers a satisfying punch.
