The Freedom Broker
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
There are twenty-five elite kidnap and ransom (K&R) specialists in the world. Only one is a woman: Thea Paris. And she's the best in the business.
Twenty years ago, a terrified young boy was abducted in the middle of the night by masked intruders while his sister watched, paralyzed with fear. Returned after a harrowing nine months with his captors, Thea's brother has never been the same.
This life-shattering experience drove Thea to become what she is today: a world-class freedom broker. Most hostage-recovery work is done at the negotiation table, but when diplomacy fails, Thea leads Quantum Security International's black-ops team on highly sensitive rescue missions to political hot spots around the globe.
Her childhood nightmare resurfaces when her oil magnate father, Christos Paris, is snatched from his yacht off Santorini on his sixtieth birthday, days away from the biggest deal of his career. The brutal kidnappers left the entire crew slaughtered in their wake, but strangely, there are no ransom demands, no political appeals, no prisoner release requests-just obscure and foreboding texts written in Latin sent from burner phones.
Knowing the survival window for kidnap victims is small, Thea throws herself into the most urgent and challenging rescue mission of her life-but will she be able to prevent this kidnapping from destroying her family for good?

TFB Rocks, Socks, And Explodes Off The Pages!
I was able to get my hands on an Advance Reader Copy of K.J. Howe's THE FREEDOM BROKER, the first Thea Paris novel, but certainly not the last! I read lots of thrillers. TFB is as entertaining as they come. Jack (Reacher) and Jason (Bourne) need to make room for Thea (Paris). Ms. Howe and Ms. Paris are definitely here to stay. And I'm delighted. I think you will be too.
I had the wonderful opportunity to read an advance copy of The Freedom Broker. Thea Paris, the main character, truly draws you in. I couldn't stop flipping pages. What a fantastic thriller - highly recommend pre-ordering to get your hands on one!
This book won’t disappoint you. Page by page it’s a thrilling read as the plot twists and turns.
