Authors Don Farmer and Chris Curle have released their second murder-thriller, “Fatal Ambition.” Like their previous novel, “Deadly News,” “Fatal Ambition” is set in the TV news business. Although it’s not a sequel, readers will enjoy that some of the characters carry over to the second novel. The novel’s setting is mostly in Naples, Florida and Atlanta, Georgia.
Authors Farmer and Curle have extensive experience in the news business, in television, radio and print. That experience comes through in their latest novel. “Fatal Ambition is another edge-of-your-seat thriller by award-winning authors Don Farmer and Chris Curle, whose intimate knowledge of TV news is on full display,” said Bert Rudman, News Director Sinclair Broadcast Group in Eugene, Oregon.
“Don Farmer has done it again in Fatal Ambition, delivering heaps of humor among the homicides. Bad deeds and revenge abound,” says Gail Evans, Former CNN Executive Vice President and best-selling author.
The characters in “Fatal Ambition” include Nikki Z, a love-her-or-hate-her news anchor on Atlanta TV. Cassie Page is an African-American crime reporter for a cable news giant. Her lover is Jimmy Hagan, an Irish-American police detective. Rudy Decker is a flashy playboy, a user and abuser of women, getting rich selling the body parts of slaughtered black bears.
Human life is cheap, too. A sexy TV talent coach is murdered. Nikki Z is kidnapped. But Rudy’s bloody schemes are threatened by Cassie and Jimmy and by wronged women set on revenge.
Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Clark Howard says, “TV news veterans Don Farmer and Chris Curle are back with a thrilling story of greed, jealousy and murder. Police and reporters chase kidnappers and bear poachers as they follow the deadly mistakes of flawed men and vengeful women.”
Dr. Terry Maple, Former President/CEO of Zoo Atlanta and Palm Beach Zoo, Assoc. Zoos and Aquariums says, “Fatal Ambition is a wild ride through the worlds of TV news and criminal wildlife trafficking. The twists and turns in this book make it hard to put down. I can’t wait for the film version of Fatal Ambition.”
Fatal Ambition is now available on Amazon, eBay or though the website www.donfarmer.com.
