Richardson, TX (PRWEB) July 10, 2002 -
thriller titles, The Gray Stopgap, is now a Âstaff recommendationÂ at the Richardson Square MallÂs Barnes & Noble bookstore located at 501 S. Plano Road in Richardson, Texas.
The Lighthouse Press reports this recently published debut novel by Texas author, DL Tolleson, is quickly gathering reader interest.
ÂYou can employ advertising to hype a novel until you are blue in the face,Â said Lighthouse Publisher Ron Richard, Âbut eventually it will stand or fall on its own merits, as is the case with The Gray Stopgap. As much as adventure, the novel is about relationships and integrityÂsubjects we think will stand the test of time. Validations such as the employee recommendation at a Barnes & Noble store in Texas are the kinds of feedback that we value for our titles.Â
The story of a government agent plagued by wartime memories and betrayal at the hands of his fiancÃ©e, The Gray Stopgap introduces the concept of "bio-chemical synthetic intelligence" and an experiment that turns upon the experimenters. Spanning over 20 years it is a psychological and emotional tapestry seamlessly woven between flashbacks and reality. Double agents, assassins, underwater adventure and sub-orbital dogfights are but a few facets of this adrenaline-driven pell-mell rush. Atypical for a techno-thriller, The Gray Stopgap delves into a tragic love story that serves as the very canvas upon which DL Tolleson paints a grandiose adventure that nearly turns its own pages.
The Barnes & Noble Âstaff recommendationÂ is expected to run through June. Readers and booksellers are also invited to visit the PublisherÂs website at http://www.LightHouseEditons.com and the authorÂs website at http://www.dltolleson.com.
