Rock Paper Tiger receives a serious nod this week from the Seattle Times, snagging top billing on Adam Woog’s top 14 crime novels of 2010. While the plot may be full of twists and intrigue, there is no mystery behind this praise to Lisa Brackmann’s latest. The story’s foul-mouthed heroine is forced on the run, racing across rural China, while simultaneously chasing down clues on the internet, dealing with her past in Iraq and a broken marriage to a former mercenary love. Worse, her new Chinese boyfriend might just be more than a charming, passionate artist. What’s it going to take to get this shell-shocked former medic a break, or at least five minutes away from the Men in Black and her host of lurking stalkers? Pick up Rock Paper Tiger today and find out.
