Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
Paul Mallory's young bride Julie lied to him, packed her bags and headed out of New York City. Now her life is in danger, and Paul rides to her rescue, only to find himself in a mysterious ghost town. As the truth slowly dawns on our intrepid reporter, there's only one question he wants answered: "Julie, Do You Love Me?"
Reese City provides Paul Mallory with his greatest challenge to date. In the first place – it doesn't exist – at least as far as the general populace of America are concerned. While "Area 51" occupies the conspiracy theorist brigade, Reese City is where the really strange phenomena take place.
Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave, the American government isn't too keen on the world discovering Reese City, let alone what's been going on there for the last seventy years. In this all action page turning thriller, Mallory pitches wits against and battles with foes and "friends" alike, who are on a mission to silence Paul for good.
This is the fourth full length Mallory adventure, as with Stephen's previous novels, I once again had the privilege of reading chapters hot off the press. This was a treat I'd been eagerly anticipating, having grown to love the main characters and the manner in which they interact with each other. Paul Mallory and his encyclopaedic knowledge of trivia, Bentley Cramer and his impervious disregard to rules, and of course the lovely Julie, possessor of a beautiful voice, with a face and figure to match. I thought I knew what to expect: A well written thriller with unexpected twists and turns and enough action to satisfy the most ardent James Bond fan.
"Julie, Do You Love Me" surpassed all expectations. This novel can confidently rub shoulders with the latest thrillers from 'published' names, and scores on every level: The plot is startlingly original, and will captivate and enthral you. I predict a lot of kindle page turner buttons becoming red hot. Congratulations Stephen, "Julie, Do You Love Me" has all the hallmarks of becoming a bestseller, and I'm confidently expected a whole host of readers to join Mr Cramer's facebook page as dedicated fans.
