Om China Lake

Evan Delaney is a heroine of our times: a woman with a big heart, a quick tongue and a hot temper that get her into trouble. She is shocked to discover that Tabitha, her ex-sister-in-law, has joined the Remnant - the Reverend Peter Wyoming's fanatical band of disciples. And that Tabitha is trying to regain custody of her six-year-old son, Luke, currently in Evan's care, while his father is posted to the Naval Air Warfare Center. Then, one of the Remnant is killed, and Evan's brother is the prime suspect. With her boyfriend, lawyer Jesse Blackburn, Evan tries to clear her brother's name and rescue her nephew. In doing so, she finds herself caught up in a wild plan to steal weapons, and a blazing inferno on a Santa Barbara hillside.

Religious fundamentalism, anti-Aids crusaders, nutty relatives, and a Waco-style shootout: they're all here in the exciting mix that Gardiner expertly stirs up. Great stuff. With energetic, punchy prose and a breathless, action-thriller plot, China Lake is an assured debut. Evan Delaney is a great character, and Gardiner is a writer to watch. This is . . . a cracker, with memorable characters, memorable lines and a plot that races along to an explosive ending. A great summer read. With a colourful cast of richly delineated characters, a protagonist with whom the readers will easily identify - all big-hearted, quick-tongued and hair- trigger-tempered - this novel provides a fast-paced ride through some of the more dubious nooks and crannies of the American dream and is an impressive opening salvo by a Surrey-based expatriate who hits the bookshelves running. A great first novel. Fast and hard-edged. Buy it, read it Sure-footed, action-packed China Lake makes a strong impression. The story grips and Ms Gardiner is a welcome addition to the ranks of American thriller writers. From beginning to end China Lake is a book that no reader of thrillers will be able to put down. Great characters, dynamic plot, nail-biting action - Meg Gardiner gives us everything. compelling tale, a powerful mix of murder, terrorism and a wealth of dark secrets. Meg Gardiner's writing crackles with energy
