Devil's Oath by j g sauls
Praise for Volume I: "The Magician's Secrets is a strikingly ambitious debut novel that delivers the real goods—compelling readability, sharply realized characters, a watchspring-tight plot, the perils and pleasures of memory, the burden of guilt, and the promise of redemption. The real magician here is j g sauls, and that is a secret that no reader will be able to keep for long."
—Keith Ferrell, New York Times bestselling author of History Decoded and Passing Judgment, former Editor-In-Chief, OMNI magazine
"Devil's Oath combines realistic love and the right amount of action with some great twists and turns. He paints a picture of the FBI from his own experience as an agent and 'it ain't your father's FBI.' I love strong female characters with wit and confidence and we have two of them here with surprising story lines, and I love the dialogue between the male and female characters. If I had the money, I'd option the entire trilogy for a series of films like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and I haven't yet read the third book of the trilogy, but it's on my wish list for summer."
—Peter J. Mclaughlin, author of Feedback Revolution and Catchfire
In this eagerly anticipated second volume of the Rob Hanson Trilogy, Agent Hanson, having escaped FBI purgatory, returns to investigative duties. But it appears he's been groomed by management for failure. His investigation into a massive fraud is impeded by a lawyer's apparent suicide, but a disabled child claims to have witnessed the lawyer's murder. Characteristically uncompromising, Hanson pursues a controversial solution that may end his career.
j g sauls is a native of North Carolina, and has lived there except when the FBI stubbornly required him to be elsewhere. Author of The Magician's Secrets, Devil's Oath, and Double Feature Boy (which will be released in June, 2014), he is currently at work on Devil's Conquest, the concluding volume of the Rob Hanson trilogy.
