Blurb: Who Knows the Storm

In a dystopian near future, New York City has become the epicenter of decadence—gambling, the flesh trade, a playground for the wealthy. And underneath? Crime, fueled by “Dead Bolt” a destructive designer drug. This New City is where Nox Boyet leads a double life. At night, he is the Vigilante, struggling to keep the streets safe for citizens abandoned by the corrupt government and police. During the day, he works in construction and does his best to raise his adopted teenaged son, Sam.

A mysterious letter addressed to Sam brings Nox in direct contact with “model” Cade Creel, a high-end prostitute working at the Iron Butterfly Casino. Suspicion gives way to an intense attraction as dark figures from Nox’s past and the mysterious peddlers of Dead Bolt begin to descend—and put all their lives in danger. When things spin out of control, Cade is the only person Nox can trust to help him save Sam.

One Breath, One Bullet Adds Up To A Whole Lot Of Obsession

One breath.
Hesitation is my enemy.
Solitude my ally.
Death the only real victory.
Exhale. – S.A. McAuley

Sometimes the enemy of your enemy is your friend. Sometimes it pays to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Sometimes your friends and your enemies come wrapped in the same skin. Sometimes you come to trust the man who has been your enemy for more than a decade, and it is the same as loving him…though you don’t know it yet. And you’ve got a mission to accomplish before you can examine the secrets and lies and half-truths that you’ve been told for most of your natural born life.

No one ever said being a Peacemaker would be easy.

Merq Grayson has been groomed nearly from the womb to be the killing machine he has become; some might even say it’s the legacy of this unstoppable man who, in only the best irony one can find in fiction, meets his irresistible force paradox in the form of the immovable Armise Darcan, the man who is Yang to Merq’s Yin, the man who is his completion wrapped up in the body of the enemy that Merq can’t seem to resist.

They are both integral cogs in a dystopian future where the world is a war-torn and fractious place in which a man playing both sides against the middle can never be sure what is the Judas-kiss-of-death and what is a kiss that means something more than betrayal.

S.A. McAuley dragged me through unholy political waters, took me wading through the murky depths of deception, and left me hanging by my fingertips on the ledge of the abyss that is the coming revolution. And not only that, but has also taken complete control of my ever-obsessive need for more.

One Breath, One Bullet is not hearts and flowers romance; this is an oxymoron, like the Peacemaker who is the catalyst of war, like something that can be sweet as sin or hurt so good. I am so excited by the promise of this series and am anxious for Book Two, to see where this broken man who has been forged into a tool of war and the man who seems poised to put him back together again will take me.
