Amazing book and the ending was, well, you will have to find out. Here's a introduction from her web site. www.JanaJJMcgraw.com
My first full-length novel, Initial Kill, grew out of my experiences as a public servant in a small Southern town not unlike Larsen, the setting for my story. I work in 911 public safety communications at present, but I’ve worked a combination of emergency work and law enforcement for almost thirty years. My late father, Larry McGraw, worked in public safety, and I followed in his footsteps. I started out as a firefighter and paramedic, then moved on to a detention officer, and finally to 911 communications.
I have taken my life’s work, the experiences, and have been able to create realistic situations and dialog: spinning the story along and watching it form in front of me; keeping things on the edge and keeping people guessing.
In Initial Kill, the situations are believable, and the dialog emulates the real language of law enforcement and rescue personnel, including Detective Jake North and his wife Lexi who works as a sergeant leading a telecommunications center. As I have encountered various levels of education and dedication in the law enforcement personnel, my novel reflects the bad along with the good. In Initial Kill, you find the dedicated law officers, but you’ll also find so-called “public servants” who are corrupt.
My lifetime of experience has guided me to splash images and characters across the pages while allowing me to use writing as a means of stress relief. As a result, Initial Kill was born. My love of writing grows stronger every day. I have finished my second novel, Pieces of You, to be published in the fourth quarter of 2013. Already, I am working on the third book in the continuing adventures of Jake and Dean.
