Jessica Ramirez must die.

The three men behind the villains in CHASING VEGA and CHASING THE CAPTAIN send the world's most deadly assassin to dispatch Jess for foiling their plans. When the killer turns up dead, events escalate and Jess faces the greatest challenge of her life, without her identity and with no memory of who she is.

Terry Shepherd ratchets up the tension with his usual stunning plot twists, high tech weaponry and the cast of characters readers have grown to love in The Jessica Ramirez Thrillers. Chasing Karma rockets forward at Terry's usual breakneck pace and we don't know how things end until the last sentence discloses the story's final satisfying reveal. Jess and Ali are back, along with love interests Michael Wright and MET Detective Inspector Layanna Evans. FBI Director Terry Taylor returns, as do MI6 operatives Mo Gerhardt and Tom Anastos and Andy Milluzzi's band of tech whizzes. We celebrate the return of fan favorite Joey Price, MD, plus a cadre of new players and a delectable antagonist who is a deadly match for Jessica's tenacity, skill, and commitment.

Chasing Karma takes the Jessica Ramirez canon to a new and terrifying level, a powerful stand-alone thriller, and a rewarding new entry in a series with much more to come.
