Greg Rucka is everywhere on the internet this week!
Rucka’s new novel ALPHA has received fantastic reviews from the likes of Library Journal, who in a starred review wrote: “Rucka gets his new series featuring Ex-Delta Force Master Sergeant Jad Bell off to a smashing start with this pitch-perfect thriller [that] will appeal particularly to readers who like a strong hero along the lines of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher,” Publishers Weekly, who called the novel “pulse-pounding,” and Booklist, who proclaim it “gripping….A real corker.”
