A Thanksgiving Day message

Good morning, all, and Happy Thanksgiving.

As I write this, I'm sitting at my desk with a glass of orange juice enjoying the rest of my breakfast. It will be a busy day for me, as I'm sure it will be for you as well. There is food to prepare (and eat) and perhaps football to watch and spending time with family and friends.

I have so much to be thankful for this year. Even though I went through the loss of my mom and an uncle (who was like a second father to me), I have been comforted through it all by my faith and the discernment to see His hand in so much of my life.

I am blessed with good friends and family. I am blessed to have you, my fans, and to have your support and encouragement. I am blessed with good health and my children are well and have grown up to be good solid and productive adults.

I am also blessed with a good wife. Not once in all the years when I struggled to find my voice and too write that first book, did she ever tell me that maybe I should give up on this writing thing. John Logan might never have seen the light of day without her unwavering support and for that (and her) I am truly thankful.

Have a blessed, safe, and enjoyable Thanksgiving.

Four in the Chamber features the first four John Logan thrillers-

SURVIVOR’S AFFAIR
John Logan has left his life in the intelligence community behind, eking out a meager living as a private investigator and trying to stay off the espionage radar. But keeping a low profile proves harder than he thought when Coral Bay's millionaire Golden Boy ends up on the wrong side of a Samurai sword and his former mentor's wayward daughter the number one suspect. Finding himself honor bound, Logan is forced to join the hunt for the real killer.

THE AFFAIRS OF MEN
Private Investigator John Logan has always been haunted by the tragic mission years before that took the lives of his black-ops team. But when he sees one of his former teammates alive in downtown Coral Bay, with a luscious woman by his side, and a horde of Russian hit men on his tail…Logan realizes that there was more to the ill-fated mission than he originally believed. As the danger rises, Logan will be forced to visit those places he had sworn off forever, dark shadows of his heart not seen since the death of his beloved Shikira.

THE SHELTERING TREE
Mason Killian lies in critical condition, the victim of a drive by hit. With his best friend fighting for his life, John Logan is determined to unravel who is responsible. To find justice for his friend, Logan must do the unthinkable: he must dig into Killian's life and open things that Killian has kept forever closed. What he finds will lead Logan into a web of deceit, betrayal, and murder, and could jeopardize his friendship with the man who has been his brother in arms for twenty years.

INTO THE MAGIC NIGHT
When a beautiful exotic dancer asks John Logan for help he is all too willing to help. But she's scared and before she can meet with Logan to tell him her problem, she's dead and Logan is left with more questions than answers. Who was she and why was she so scared? His digging will put Logan into the seedier side of Coral Bay and get him involved with a ruthless businessman, a venture capitalist, and could put him at odds with one of Logan's dearest friends.
