Check Out the Start of Book 2 in the Steve Dane Action Series

Brian Drake’s Another Way to Kill is packed with thrills

THE LIGHT over the fuselage doorway turned from red to green, and for the first time in many years, Steve Dane jumped out of a perfectly good airplane.

His insulated jumpsuit blocked the harsh cold of the night, but he felt the icy blast on his neck and most of his face. Goggles with built-in night-vision capability covered his eyes. The goggles gave the ground below a greenish hue. As he fell through space, he scanned for a dot somewhere in the forest below. Dane pulled the rip cord; the parachute billowed out of his pack and jolted him violently as it blossomed. His descent slowed. He grabbed the risers over his shoulders, and continued looking for the dot.

His lady and partner-in-crime, Nina Talikova, was supposed to be down there with the landing beacon. They faced a tense situation in Bogota. If something had happened to her—

He found it.

Check Out the First Chapter For New Thriller ‘Skills To Kill’

Meet Steve Dane and Nina Talikova — they’re not to be messed with!

“WILL YOU shoot him already?”

Steve Dane laughed and shifted in the bed. The accordion down the hall continued blaring. Nina rolled away from him and pulled the covers over her.

Male and female laughter mingled with the noise. The party had been going on since midnight.

“Laugh all you want,” she said. “You won’t get any of my goodies until that man is dead.” Her words were dusted with a soft Russian accent.

Dane said, “Other than the noise, it’s a nice hotel, right?”

“It is not. I get to pick next time.”

“This is one of the nicest hotels in Italy. This is what you wanted.”

“Next time we’ll go to Geneva.”

The downstairs staff had acknowledged receiving many complaints, but they were powerless to help. The accordion player was a pop star, whose name Dane had forgotten, who had lots and lots of money that he spent at the hotel and surrounding establishments, and they were not going to disturb him lest he start breaking things and decide to spend his lots and lots of money elsewhere.
