Rock Paper Tiger by Lisa Brackman

The New York Times calls Lisa Brackmann's first novel, Rock Paper Tiger, published by our good friends and clients over at Soho Press, a "wild ride." Jam packed with chases, terrorists, and plot twists, Rock Paper Tiger could easily leave Jason Bourne in the dust.

The novel follows expatriate Ellie Cooper on a break-neck thrill-ride through China as she battles terrorists, confronts mysterious black ops commandos, searches for her missing artist boy-toy, and joins a secret society, all just to escape the monotony of every-day life back in the states.

The novel intersperses political wit and social commentary on war, torture, and the anxieties of cultural change into the mix to create a novel that is truly one of a kind.

Take a look at the New York Times review and the website for Rock Paper Tiger by Lisa Brackmann.

  1. Agree to all the above. Lisa Brackmann is a gifted, quick-witted writer...intelligence way beyond the top-mystery-writers that publishers are promoting.

    Rock Paper Tiger is a must read above all else.
