From the Editor

Before You Leap starts on screeching tires, literally—an interstate bridge, a police chase, three men trapped in a car, driving at full speed. The two in the front are arguing, one is brandishing a gun, and the third is bleeding profusely in the back seat. You can’t help but be immediately hooked and wonder, Who are they? And how on earth did they get here?

The novel then takes you back a few days. Greg Cole’s quiet and secluded life is about to be thrown into chaos when he learns that his dead sister’s convicted murderer has been released early.

Before You Leap is absorbing, thought-provoking and psychologically riveting. I was struck by how the author is able to delve into Greg’s psyche and express his grief over the loss of his sister—and the inner turmoil that overtakes him—with such clarity. What you’re left with is a poignant, complex, nail-biting novel where you watch in a stupor as someone’s life and sanity shatter. And as it crescendoes, the story pulls the rug from under your feet and delivers the most unexpected twist—one that took my breath away and left me reeling.

- Emilie Marneur, Editor


Product description

Product Description

When your life is a lie, how do you live with the truth?
 
Peace of mind is all Greg Cole has wanted since the murder of his twin sister, Scarlett.

In his new sun-soaked Florida life, he thought he had found it. But when Scarlett's killer is released early from prison with a cast-iron alibi, Greg realizes that his past is about to explode into his present, with terrifying consequences.

To expose the truth he must open up old wounds. As a talk therapist, Greg knows all about dark secrets, but when a childhood friendship comes to the fore and the police turn their spotlight on him, the thought of analyzing his own psyche is a disturbing prospect. How far can he trust his own memories?

With his life coming apart at the seams, and his grip on reality beginning to unravel, Greg must face the ghosts of his past if he hopes to prove his innocence and live to see another day.

About the Author

Keith Houghton spent too much of his childhood reading science-fiction books, mostly by flashlight and tented under the bed covers, dreaming of becoming a full-time novelist. When he was thirteen, his English teacher--who was fed up with reading his space stories--told him he would never make it as a science-fiction writer. Undeterred, he went on to pen several sci-fi novels and three comedy stage plays, in and around raising a family. But it wasn't until he switched genres and began to write mystery thrillers that his dream finally became reality. These days, he can be found glued to a computer or spending quality time with his grandchildren. Keith Houghton is the author of the three Gabe Quinn thrillers, Killing Hope, Crossing Lines, and Taking Liberty, as well as the psychological thriller No Coming Back.
