Bestselling author D.V. Berkom joins us in this episode of CrimeFiction.FM to discuss her new book, the fourth in her Leine Basso thriller series, CARGO.
DV shares the story behind her series protagonist, Leine Basso.
The Leine Basso thrillers are DV’s second thriller series featuring a strong female protagonist, the first features Kate Jones.
DV shares the story setup for CARGO and explains how she selects the themes she covers in the books.
DV recently returned from the Writers Police Acadamy in Wisconsin. She shares her thoughts and some stories from the conference, which is a hands-on, interactive and educational event allowing writers to improve their understanding of all aspects of law enforcement and forensics.
From the Publisher:
Haunted by memories of an op gone bad, former assassin Leine Basso travels to Bangkok in search of a missing backpacker. With help from an old contact, she discovers the man responsible for the girl’s disappearance is connected to a violent Hong Kong triad and is the linchpin of an extensive trafficking network–both animal and human.
Making enemies isn’t new for Leine, but making one in the triad is–she soon finds herself a prisoner on board a cargo ship headed for sub-Saharan Africa. To ensure her survival and to continue her hunt for the missing girl, she must join forces with Derek, an ivory poacher who promises to help her.
For a price.
