Blurb for Dead Wrong: Lynnette is a woman on the run from her abusive cop husband, but she’s dead wrong about who’s chasing her. A thug known as Fat Ass Sammy Grick carelessly switches laptop cases at the airport and puts Lynnette in greater danger from Sammy’s boss and the killer sent to retrieve the laptop contents. Then Lynnette finds out her husband was murdered and she’s a person of interest....


Advance Praise for Dead Wrong

“Intrigue, vengeance, battles of wits and will . . . all the ingredients for a fast-paced suspense from a fresh new voice.”
          —Sophie Littlefield, author of the Stella Hardesty mystery series, dystopian Aftertime series, and suspense novels for adults and YA

“Stoltey’s Dead Wrong has breakneck pacing and one of my favorite themes: a woman on the run. It’s a fantastic combination of suspense and action from a new writer on the suspense scene.”
          —Jamie Freveletti, #1 Amazon bestselling author of Dead Asleep and author of Robert Ludlum’s The Janus Reprisal 

“Lean and lightning-paced, Patricia Stoltey’s Dead Wrong is both a finely plotted and heartthumping thriller as well as a cautionary tale: never marry an abusive cop, never unintentionally switch carry-on bags with a psychotic killer when flying coach, and never, ever under any circumstances pick up this book if you hope to get anything else done the rest of the day.”
           —David Freed, author of the Cordell Logan mystery series (Flat Spin, Fangs Out, and Voodoo Ridge).

Hi Patricia .. I love the cover with headlights rushing us, the reader. Sounds like you've got all the bases covered .. and good luck with the release, then sales.

Love the thought of who's doing what and what for - lots of lead ins here .. the blurb intrigues .. while the advance praises show you should be on to a winner ... and you'll be Dead Right on Dead Wrong ...

Cheers have a good weekend - Hilary

Patricia Stoltey said...

Thanks, Hilary! I appreciate your good wishes.

Karen Duvall said...

Dead Wrong sounds like an intriguing story with a fast pace, just the kind of book I like to read. Best of luck with it, Pat! :)

C.J. Pitchford said...

Fantastic! Those blurbs are wonderful. I can't wait to read what inspired such reviews!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Thanks, Karen. It's certainly a change of pace from the Sylvia and Willie mysteries.

Patricia Stoltey said...

Welcome, C.J. I was very excited to receive those blurbs, and from three of my very favorite authors, too.

John Paul McKinney said...

Congratulations, Pat. It sounds as though you've hit a home run; no, a grand slam. Can't wait to read it.

Susan Oleksiw said...

Hi, Pat, this sounds like a terrific book. You have great blurbs! And, eerily, it brings to mind an incident in my area a few months ago.

Patricia Stoltey said...

Hi JP -- thanks for stopping by. My elders (Mom and aunt) also gave it a thumbs up, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Susan, I can only tell you I would not like to live through my main character's experiences in this novel.

Dean K Miller said...

I want to be at your first speaking event and ask you repeatedly about Fat Ass Sammy Grick. Man, I just want to hear you say that over and over!

Congrats on the book release. Looking forward to reading Dead Wrong.

Dave Bonnett said...

Hi Pat! I will be ordering this - unless I'm a lucky winner!

RichardK said...

Pat did not pay me for the following comment...

I'm looking forward to your next suspense novel (pause for dramatic effect here). You are the greatest writer in the known universe. If I could I'be Pat's -- what is this --footstool...

All right, Pat. That's it! I can't read any more.

Sharon Ervin said...

This one sounds riveting. Love Five Star novels. Enter me in the contest for the give-aways and thanks.

Cara said...

Congratulations, Pat! Fantastic title. I'll spread the word...

LadyDi77 said...

Holy crap, batman! This sounds like one heck of a story! The cover is also very eye-catching; the headlights look very creepy... Thanks for the opportunity and congrats on the new book! :)

Patricia Stoltey said...

Time to catch up -- I was off at the farmers' market buying goodies. It's a beautiful day for that kind of thing.

Okay, Dean, I can say Fat Ass Sammy Grick as many times as you want. Talking like Sammy....well, that's another story.

Hey, Dave, is that really you or did Dottie sneak a comment in here using your Facebook ID? Regardless, WELCOME!

LOL, Rich. You would make a terrible footstool. Just bring chocolate!

Sharon, I'm a big fan of Five Star novels and their authors. It's a great place to find a good read.

Patricia Stoltey said...

Cara, thank you so much. All word-spreading is appreciated (and Rich is bringing extra chocolate for all my friends).

LadyDi77 -- the cover art on Five Star novels is one of the great perks of having them as your publisher.

Clarissa Draper said...

I love the cover too. I hope the book does really well. Would love to read and review it.

Patricia Stoltey said...

Hi Clarissa. I once drove through a snowstorm like that to get home from work. It's creepy in real life, too.

Janet Fogg said...

Bravo, Pat! DEAD WRONG sounds dead right!

Julie Luek said...

Well who can resist this offer? Of course, I'm already a fan. Congratulations on the release, Pat!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Janet, I'm just hoping there's a world of readers out there who will feel the same way.

Thanks, Julie! Any snow in your part of Colorado yet? I figure we'll get a blizzard on whatever day I schedule a book signing.

j.a. kazimer said...

I can't wait for it. Congrats Pat!!!!

cryptictown said...

Congratulations, Pat! I can't wait to read it!

Ruth said...

Patricia, it sounds like a great book. I'm looking forward to reading it. Sounds like you've written a great first novel in a new genre. Congratulations!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Thanks, Julie. I'm excited!

Cryptictown -- love that ID. Thanks!

Hi Ruth. It was an interesting transition from amateur sleuth to fast-paced suspense. I hope it works for the reader.

Mary Preston said...

This does sound exciting. Great cover.

Elle Carter Neal said...

Oh, hey! I remember this one from NagSisters! Woo!

pam2spicy said...

Great advanced praise, Pat. I know it's going to be a big hit. Can't wait to read it.

Rachna Chhabria said...

Congratulations Patricia, I love the title and the cover image of your book.

Mark Stevens said...

Hi Pat -- I just thought I would drop by to let you know this is one of the winning blog comments ! You only need to find one other now. Thought I would save you some work.

GREAT cover !

Mark

janetlane said...

Hi, Pat! Hearty congrats on the wonderful reviews! And best wishes for brisk holiday sales! --Janet

Patricia Stoltey said...

Hmmm...maybe I should give away more than two copies....

Welcome, Mary! I'm pretty fond of that cover, too.

Elle, it's true. Dead Wrong has been in the works a long time.

Thanks, Pam! The blurbs are definitely a nice bonus.

Thank you, Rachna. I guess you can tell I'm very excited.

LOL, Mark. It's lovely when a friend offers to save me a little time. Thank you.

Hey, Janet! It was so good to see you at Colorado Gold. I was sorry I didn't have a book in time for the big book sale, but having it out before Christmas is fantastic.

Barbara Graham said...

Congratulations! I'm so happy to see a new book with your name on the cover. Can't wait to read it.

Barbara Graham

M. K. Theodoratus said...

Sure hope "a great cover" leads to great sales. All those marketing saws must have a grain of truth in them. Right?

I'm looking forward to reading your "bad guys' bad language".

Patricia Stoltey said...

Hi Barbara! I happy about that, too. Shifting sub-genres was harder than I thought it would be.

Me, too, Kay! :D
