Terry Irving. Ronin Robot, $14.99 trade paper (302p) ISBN 978-0-9860873-1-8
Peabody Award–winner Irving, a veteran TV news writer and producer, uses his own formative experiences in the business as the starting point for this conspiracy thriller set in Washington, D.C., in 1972. Rick Putnam survived his tour of duty in Vietnam, but remains haunted by his experiences there. He now works as a courier for the Associated Broadcast Network, transporting film from the field back to the studio on his motorcycle. After Rick picks something up from the network’s top investigative journalist, Joe Hadley, a hit man takes out Hadley and his crew, the first of a number of murders carried out to conceal the contents of the images Rick was given. The next victim is an accountant Hadley interviewed who worked for the Committee for the Reelection of the President. Though that revelation signals that the bloodshed is connected with the White House, Irving uses a lesser-known allegation of Nixonian villainy as his payoff. The fast-paced action will appeal to Baldacci and Meltzer fans. (BookLife)
