Author’s Summary

The novel introduces covert agent Blake Deco, fresh off a successful mission in the retrieval of the Deringer pistol that shot Abraham Lincoln.

Blake and an old army comrade are successful in the retrieval of the stunning starlet, Goldie, but what Blake didn’t bargain for was the psycho kingpin to have an out of control obsession with Goldie and the great lengths the heinous drug lord will go through to get the actress back.

Praise for Gun Kiss

From Washington, D.C. to Hollywood and Veracruz, Gun Kiss by Khaled Talib is a terrific adventure involving the FBI, drug lords, movie stars, and Russian generals. Grab your copy, drop into your favorite reading chair, and prepare yourself for breathless suspense." — Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Assassins.

"Gun Kiss is a whip smart thriller that brings to mind Don Winslow's masterful work that includes, most recently, THE FORCE. Khaled Talib rockets to the top of the pop culture pack with a tale in which every page is chock full of angst-riddled action and searing suspense. Gun Kiss manages to be hot and cool at the same time, a genre bender that breaks a host of rules while crafting new ones in their place. Featuring both a classic man-of-mystery hero and an equally classic femme fatale, this is reading entertainment of the highest order." — Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author of The Rising

Talib’s wisecracking hero in Gun Kiss propels readers on an unforgettable ride across several continents. This blockbuster thriller offers the perfect mix of elements to satisfy any reader, including the quest for historic artifacts, a fierce battle against drug lords, and a memorable romance with a Hollywood starlet. Add it to your must-read list. — K.J. Howe, author of THE FREEDOM BROKER
