Cold Fury Official Trailer
Jason Bourne meets The Sopranos in this breathtaking adventure
Sara Jane Rispoli is a normal sixteen-year-old coping with school and a budding romance—until her parents and brother are kidnapped and she discovers her family is deeply embedded in the Chicago Outfit (aka the mob).
Now on the run from a masked assassin, rogue cops and her turncoat uncle, Sara Jane is chased and attacked at every turn, fighting back with cold fury as she searches for her family. It's a quest that takes her through concealed doors and forgotten speakeasies—a city hiding in plain sight. Though armed with a .45 and 96K in cash, an old tattered notebook might be her best defense—hidden in its pages the secret to "ultimate power." It's why she's being pursued, why her family was taken, and could be the key to saving all of their lives.
Action packed, with fresh, cinematic writing, Cold Fury is a riveting and imaginative adventure readers will devour.
I really enjoy a total badass heroine. Sara Jane is crafted with thoughtful consideration to maintain a sense of realness with might and susceptibility. Although she carries a gun and a suitcase full of cash, she is still your typical teenage girl who worries about finding a date for prom. But she realizes when action is required to find the location of her family, even if they are dead or alive.
Goeglein’s writing style is precise and highly detailed. You can almost smell the gunpowder each time the gun pops and taste blood when fist and flesh meet. The descriptions of Sara Jane’s dangerous journey are so real it will keep readers on their edge. Goeglein puts the reader straight into Sara Jane’s mind as reader and heroine try to solve each presented clue.
The writing approach puts the reader in the middle of all the action with great visualization. Cold Fury brings breathtaking mystery and fiery action to every page. With a well-structured dialogue that compliments a very intriguing plot, finely tuned unforgettable characters, and action that screams, it is the perfect formula for an action-packed roller-coaster of a ride.
