“She was one in a million…and the day I met her I should have bought a lottery ticket instead.”

***~~~***

Griffith Crowe, the "fixer" for a Chicago law firm, falls for his current assignment, Helena Nicholson, the beautiful heir of a Tech Sector venture capitalist who perished in a helicopter crash leaving her half a billion dollars, a Learjet 31, and unsavory suspicions about her father's death. As he investigates, the ex-Navy SEAL crosses swords with Helena’s step-brother, the Pentagon’s Highlands Forum, and an All-Star bad guy somebody has hired to stop him. When Griff finds himself on the wrong side of an arrest warrant he wonders: Is he a player or being played?


Lawyers and Lovers and Guns…Oh, my!




my review...

Well, I love rugged troubleshooters as characters and this one is half-Native American and a rancher to boot. I just knew he was handsome and suave and smart. Then as you read on you find that Griff works sort of “when he wants to” and most often for a very swanky law firm. This is not a legal book though, no legal politics here other than the intrigue type. This is also not your everyday P.I. story either. The book and its storyline wind around Griff, a character as neat as I described in the first few lines; one that easily retrieves things that people either need or just want. All through legal terms of course or at least it always starts out that way. Griff is a man who is comfortable in many worlds. A world full of beautiful women, high finance and people who fly more than they drive. A man who suffers no fools. My kind of character.

You probably already know I liked this book. All the characters are well-defined I just happened to “take” to Griff most of all. I might even have been a little jealous of the beautiful blondes he had falling for him. I began to wonder if one or both of them were quite possibly not in the game for love. Then again that’s what intrigue and thriller type genres are all about isn’t it?

M. T. Bass has several books published. All have good reviews.


read an excerpt...

The low, almost husky yet honey smooth female voice poured seductively over Griff and blanked his mind as he turned into the pilot’s lounge. Though dimly lit, as they all were to facilitate napping, her red dress glowed like a hearth, yet she still wore her sunglasses as she studied her iPhone’s screen, slouching and sitting askew in one of the La-Z-Boy recliners with her legs crossed. Griff’s eye was drawn to the slow but rhythmic bounce of her stiletto heel. Predator had become prey. She took off her Jackie Ohhs, looked Griff up and down, then took a deep breath. 


“Mmmm…tall, dark and dangerous…just the way I like them.”

Griff locked onto her blue-gray eyes and surrendered. He leaned against the door jam. His inside voice taunted, No plan survives contact with the enemy.

“I couldn’t help but notice Lance’s Escalade on the ramp. He is a conniving bastard, isn’t he? Of course, he is a lawyer, but he does excel at it. Not to mention the unseemly delight he takes in it.”

“Always has,” Griff said. “As long as I’ve known him.”

“Then, you really shouldn’t be surprised.”

Griff smiled, realizing it wasn’t Mayor Daley’s fault that he was still on the ground in Chicago. “Name’s Griff.”

“Yes. I know.”

He waited, his face an implacable facade, one molded and hammered into place on the Coronado Beach while enduring BUD/S training. “You got a name? Or will you answer to minx or vixen?”

 “Hmmm…you like the ‘X’ words. I prefer Helena.”

“So…how long will we be playing Three Card Monte with modern art…Helena?
