Three by K.J. McGillick - Book Blitz


THREE: Deception Love Murder
Inviting a stranger into your home can be dangerous. Inviting a stranger into your life can turn deadly.


How would you feel if you discovered your death was meticulously planned by someone you loved? You didn't know how or when or even why. All you could do was wait.

Emma has it all-a job she loves and a man who professed to love her.

Or did she? How could she be so blind?

When her lover’s car is found burned and abandoned in another state, the police come asking some hard questions. What she discovers upends her world completely. Jude had been living a double life right under her nose. A deceitful life, a treacherous life. Who was this man that had already groomed another woman to take over Emma's life? A woman who was Emma's body double and now dead.  

Why had she so easily trusted this psychopath with her heart? Betrayed on every level, consequences not of Emma’s making were nipping at her heels. Tick. Tock.

THREE is a gripping crime thriller that will have you hooked. A fast-paced psychological thriller that has been compared to the works of Dan Brown. It can be read as a standalone and serves as the first book in the Path of Deception and Betrayal series.

Three will be 99 p/c for the duration of the tour




Excerpt

“We have established the identity of the woman who was using the box for the last two years. But before you ask, I am not at liberty to release her name,” he stated and waited for the fallout.
Aunt Mary fidgeted. He stared, challenging her to start again. “She has been identified as a deceased victim of what we believe was a robbery.”
“Dead. Wait, What? How did you identify her? Who is she? So, she's a real person who was using my identity?” My voice squeaked. Alexi placed her hand on mine to signal me to settle down and signaled Agent Thomas to continue.
“Okay, then can you tell us her name and why she took on Emma’s identity, or specifically, how she did it?” Alexi asked.
“No. Any questions about the case are off the table,” he replied.
“Can you tell me how Emma is involved? If someone has put her in danger, you must inform us,” Alexi demanded. I saw her looking for the federal code section to cite.
He stroked his chin. It was apparent he was deeply conflicted. “I do not have enough information to answer the question accurately. But, I can tell you she associates with Jude White.” He again waited for the fallout of his revelation and this time was not disappointed. Everyone in the room erupted.
Aunt Mary slammed the table and curses erupted from her I wasn't aware she knew. I started peppering him with questions, at which point Alexi took control. With her hand in a hold position, she forced us to all be silent.
“Well, a bombshell and not what we expected,” she started.
“I expected that,” Aunt Mary burst out. “There's your answer to why he's in the wind.”
“In the wind?” Agent Thomas asked with a confused look.
“Don't you people talk to each other? She put a missing person out on him last night,” Aunt Mary stated as she hiked her thumb at me. Apparently, her love for the FBI had died off.
“Oh, in the wind. You mean missing. Yes, I am aware Mr. White is missing.” He smiled, but not a genuine smile. “This is a complex investigation with many interconnected parts. I need you to understand any interference from anyone,” he looked straight at Aunt Mary, “could bring an obstruction charge.” Aunt Mary raised her hands in surrender and appeared to relent.
“Is Emma in any danger?” Alexi asked circling us back to the more important question.
“I don't believe so—” he replied with hesitation.
“Look, Sam. Apparently something more is going on here. I understand you can only admit specific details because you cannot jeopardize an investigation, but let's sum this up. Someone, for an unexplained reason, opened a box in Emma's name. The woman has a remarkable resemblance to Emma, right?” Alexi waited for an acknowledgment that never came. “This woman is linked to Jude White.” Agent Thomas gave Alexi a small nod. “This woman dies after the box she has been using is compromised. We know the day of the bank breach, Mr. White disappeared with no further information about him. Now you leave Emma waiting for further information, with the box in her name which could cause some serious legal issues. Do you understand my problem here? Can you honestly say Emma is not in danger?” Alexi waited for an answer that never came. Aunt Mary interjected, “She connected those dots, bucko.”
As he leaned forward, he rested his elbows on the table and his fingers pointed into a steeple. “I am sorry Dr. Collier is going through this stressful time. But I cannot offer you any further information. When we have something more concrete, we will let you know.”
