“Razor sharp and full of you-are-there authenticity—a superb thriller.” #1 NYT Bestseller Lee Child
“She’s tough. She’s smart. She’s diabetic. The best scene involves bungee jumping over the Zambezi River. It’s worth the price of the book. A spectacular start to what promises to be a great Thea Paris series.” Kirkus, Starred Review
“Non-stop suspense, commanding attention from the start and never letting go…a must for thriller fans.” Booklist, Starred Review
“Unparalleled storytelling by KJ Howe filled with excitement that never stops. THE FREEDOM BROKER is a plot loaded with surprises and intrigue. Her characters are memorable and realistic. She has a great talent for the description of landscapes, action, and an unerring detail for stealth from the beginning to the climatic end. I wish I could write as well.” Clive Cussler, #1 NYT Bestseller
“KJ Howe’s debut novel is a high stakes geo-political thriller that is truly a page turner. THE FREEDOM BROKER explores and illuminates the exotic world of elite Delta Force-type professionals who make a dangerous and deadly living rescuing kidnap victims all over the world. And we are along for the ride of our lives. Incredibly well-researched and expertly written, this is a behind-the-scenes story of how some hostage victims come home safely and why some do not.” Nelson DeMille, #1 NYT Bestseller
