Instrument of the Devil

Instrument of the Devil by Debbie Burke, book cover

A dashing terrorist targets the electrical grid, framing a small-town widow. Tawny Lindholm only wants to live a quiet life in Montana, recovering from the death of her husband, and hoping to find solace with a handsome widower she just met. But nothing is as it appears when she receives a new smartphone that does everything except make a call.
Mysterious cash appears in her bank account and surveillance video shows her making deposits she knows she didn’t make. While the feds suspect her of illegal activity, her son, a soldier serving in Afghanistan, is kidnapped and held for ransom.

Can Tawny save him? Or will unseen tentacles of a terrorist plot destroy her?

INSTRUMENT OF THE DEVIL won the 2016 Zebulon Contest in the mystery/suspense/thriller category. The book will be published Summer 2017. Please check back for availability.
