Longboat Key, FL (PRWEB) January 11, 2011
Oceanview Publishing announces the upcoming release of Pocket-47 by Jude Hardin. Pocket-47 (ISBN: 978-1-60809-011-2, Thriller, 240 pages, Hardcover, $25.95) will be available wherever fine books are sold on May 2, 2011.
In Pocket-47, Jude Hardin, a fresh new voice for mystery fans, delivers a fast-paced, polished, and wryly dark thriller that sizzles from the first page to the last.
Fifteen-year-old Brittney Ryan has taken to the streets. Leitha, her older sister and legal guardian, hires private investigator Nicholas Colt to find her and bring her home.
Piece of cake, Colt thinks. With Brittney's forbidden boyfriend's address in hand, he plans to make a surprise visit and put this one in the scrapbook. But something more sinister is behind Brittney's disappearance, and Colt soon finds himself in an ever-widening maze of deceit, betrayal, and murder.
When Colt learns what the mysterious phrase "Pocket-47" means, he is haunted even more by the plane crash that killed his family and rock band twenty years ago--a crash he now realizes might not have been an accident.
Determined to save Brittney, Colt struggles to untangle the threads of his own tortured past. Unfortunately, one of the most heinous and violent criminals in modern history has other ideas.
According to Tess Gerritsen, New York Times best-selling author of Ice Cold, "Pocket-47 sucked me in and held me enthralled. Author Jude Hardin keeps the pace frantic, the thrills non-stop, but best of all is his hero, the wonderfully ironic Nicholas Colt."
Jude Hardin graduated from the University of Louisville in 1983 with an English degree, and currently lives in northeast Florida.
