Weekend Cowboy by Maureen Maillet


"A timely commentary on both the tangled health care industry and family interrelations in a thriller that twists both elements into a gripping story."


Someone desperately wants Kate Jones and her husband dead. Kate oversees a bio-tech company on the verge of rewriting the rules for drug discovery. At the same time she is trying to sustain her marriage and raise three children. On a ranch in the Texas hill country, Kate finds a safe retreat from her problems. Between body-guards and lingering in the public eye, she attempts to lead a normal life while keeping one step ahead of the killers. In the end, Kate will be forced to change the course of history if she wants to stay alive.


"I am so relieved to know that Weekend Cowboy is part of a trilogy because one book is just not enough contact with these highly developed characters. Kate Jones and Harlynn Barrett, the in-laws and outlaws. Maureen Maillet has done a superb job of pacing her plot and taking the reader to the edge. Stay tuned for Maillet's next one...I can't wait!"
