FREE E-BOOK: BABY SHARK!

FREE E-BOOK: BABY SHARK!

ROBERT FATE

BABY SHARK WILL BE FREE FROM MAY 18 THRU MAY 22, 2012

HARKENING BACK TO THE GREAT MEN’S ACTION NOVELS OF THE ‘70s AND ‘80’s, BABY SHARK IS A KICK ASS NOVEL WITH A HEROINE WHO IS AS HARD AS NAILS – POOL CUE OR BLADE, NOBODY PUTS BABY SHARK IN THE CORNER . . .

October 1952 – A father murdered. A daughter sexually assaulted, beaten, left for dead. As a rule, in the 1950s, a good girl didn’t admit being raped –and she’d never seek revenge for her father’s murder. But Kristin Van Dijk didn’t play by the rules.

I’d wake in the middle of the night and say to myself, “It’s just business, Kristin.” In my heart I knew that using words like business, work, and jobs was Sarge’s way of talking about killing.

Albert would say, “stop a man," instead of, "kill him.”

Henry had his euphemisms, too. “We fix,” he’d say.

“They know what they’re teaching you to do,” I said to my image.

No one was saying it straight out – and the more I looked in the mirror, the more I realized that I wasn’t saying it, either.

I’d become an actress – a dangerous actress – full of deceit and lethal skills.
