is a must

The great and wonderful Carol Fitzgerald of grabbed me at a cocktail party in New York last week, air-kissed my cheeks, then scolded me because BREAKING POINT had ramped up her fear of flying.

Carol, lord love her, had read CRASHERS last year while en route to a conference. In an airliner. Okay, my bad. That one’s all on me.

Anyway, Carol, as effervescent as a cold prosecco, quickly gave me the low-down on a few writers, the crispiest gossip she’d heard, and pointed me toward three mystery novels I needed to read asap (I read one on the plane. The woman knows her stuff. Wowsa…)

She also wrote this about my new book:

“Finally, you may remember how I enjoyed CRASHERS by Dana Haynes last year. He is back with BREAKING POINT (pre-order from IndieBound and Amazon), which will be in stores November 8th, where Dr. Tommy Tomzak and Kiki Duvall make another appearance. Here the crash scene investigation duo is en route to a conference when their own plane crashes. But it’s not an accident, it’s sabotage. Even as they are victims, they pursue their attackers and the action keeps getting ratcheted up. I saw Dana last night, and he already was talking about his next book, which he has completed a first draft of. All I will share is that there is a character in BREAKING POINT I loved who we are going to get to see a lot more of.”

Carol: Adore! You!

Herein also is an interview the can’t-live-without did with me last year.
