Happy New Year everyone! I hope your 2018 is off to a great start. I’m particularly excited because next month, I’m not only launching a new book… I’m also starting a new series featuring betrayed assassin Thomas Caine!
CAINE: RAPID FIRE
Rapid fire reads… Rapid fire action!
The Caine: Rapid Fire series will consist of short, action-packed novellas. Each book will focus on a story from Caine’s early career in the CIA’s Special Operations Group, as well as the period of exile after his betrayal. I may also feature some stories about his allies and enemies, like Jack Tyler, Officer Mariko Murase, Rebecca Freeling, and others.
I’ll still be writing novel length Thomas Caine thrillers as well, but the Rapid Fire series will cover the gaps in between. Think more books like Devil’s Due… quick shots of literary adrenaline!
In fact, Devil’s Due is going to be re-branded as Caine: Rapid Fire Book 1. I have a new cover on the way, and I can’t wait for you to check it out. But in the meantime, take a look at the cover and blurb for Caine: Rapid Fire Book 2: COLD KILL!
Caine returns in an action-packed, lightening fast read. Cold Kill is a quick shot of literary adrenaline…
Thomas Caine is being hunted.
To protect a friend, the vengeful assassin has taken on a sinister branch of the Russian Mafia. Blood has been spilled, and these ruthless gangsters know better than anyone that revenge is a dish best served cold.
Caine soon finds himself captured in the frozen mountains of Siberia. With no equipment, no supplies, and no weapons, he must survive in this icy wasteland, as a team of Russian mercenaries hunts him down. These expert killers are led by an infamous manhunter known as The Iron Wolf… a ruthless Spetsnaz commander who collects trophies from his human prey.
Can Caine outwit this lethal pack, and prove himself the ultimate predator in a ghastly game of death?
On the hunt for a new thriller? Set your sights on Thomas Caine… This 142 page novella takes place before Tokyo Black, and features a fast-paced adventure from Caine’s past.
Cold Kill take place before Tokyo Black, and picks up a few months after the events of Devil’s Due. Caine will have his hands full as he struggles to survive the bitter cold of Siberia, and the vicious hunting party on his tail!
I also plan to to use the Caine: Rapid Fire series to do some collaborating with other authors whose work I respect and enjoy. I reached out to the author who wrote my favorite thriller of last year, we are working together on Rapid Fire book 3! We’ve already begun outlining the story, and I get goose bumps just thinking about it. This author I and share similar literary and thriller influences, and I know he will knock it out of the park…
So keep your eyes peeled. Cold Kill is launching next month, and I’ll have more details coming soon! Let me know in the comments what adventures or characters you’d like to see pop up next in Caine: Rapid Fire…
So, in what order should I read the Caine books?
Andrew Warren says
Kevin, some readers tell me they like to read them in chronological order, but others say they read out of order and didn’t care. There are two series of Caine books… the main novels, in order, are Tokyo Black, Red Phoenix, Fire and Forget. The Caine: Rapid Fire series jumps around in time, but they all take place before Tokyo Black. In publishing order, they would go Devil’s Due, Cold Kill, Sandfire, Depth Charge. Or, in chronological order, Sandfire, Depth Charge, Devil’s Due, Cold Kill. Hope you enjoy them, whatever order you choose1
