Overview

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CJ Lyons. For fans of Lisa Gardner, Tami Hoag, and Jeffery Deaver:

"Everything a great thriller should be-action packed, authentic, and intense." ~#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child

After leaving the FBI, Lucy Guardino still feels like the new kid on the block with her team at Beacon Falls. But then a new case involving a young woman with amnesia searching for her lost memories shines a spotlight on a past case involving one of Lucy's team members.

Dr. Tommy Worth left his job as a pediatrician ER physician to join the Beacon Group after his wife went missing, leaving him to raise their five-year-old daughter alone. Now the press is hounding him on the anniversary of his wife's disappearance. Distracting himself with the newest case at Beacon Falls fails miserably after the woman he is trying to help becomes the target of an anonymous stalker. Because, when you can't even remember who you are, how do you know who to trust? Or who to run from?

DEVIL SMOKE is the eighth Lucy Guardino novel, but they can be read out of order. If you enjoy captivating suspense, intelligent storytelling, strong and vulnerable characters, and a freight-train pace, then you'll love this adrenaline rush of a heart-pounding thriller from "a master of the genre."

"Storylines as hypnotic as the characters are magnetic...(Lyons) delights and satisfies." ~National Examiner
5 out of 5 stars: "CJ Lyons imparts such realism, it is hard not to become emotionally invested. Intense. Edgy. Believable. Highly recommend!" ~Best Fiction Books on SNAKE SKIN

TOP PICK! 4 1/2 Stars: Combine Dirty Harry with a loving wife and mother and you might end up with Lucy Guardino. Fans of Lyons' hospital-set series will love the change of setting and thrilling pace. One note: readers with a fear of snakes should pick up this story carefully. Regardless, you won't be able to put this one down. ~RT Book Reviews on SNAKE SKIN

"An action packed thriller from page one! An amazing fast paced story with characters that jump off the page and capture your heart. A must read!" ~My Book Addiction on BLOOD STAINED

"In true CJ Lyons fashion, this book pulls no punches. It's an in-your-face, no-holds-barred story depicting the cruel world of murder and drugs. As with all of her other books, CJ Lyons never disappoints. This book was a true page turner and I didn't want to put it down. She is a brilliant writer and storyteller both, which is not often found in an author. I am already looking forward to her next novel!" BookingIt.net on KILL ZONE

"This tale is not for the faint of heart, for this is a tale of dark human emotions. A must read for anyone who enjoys high-octane emotions with realistic characters and an intriguing storyline." ~My Book Addiction on HARD FALL

"A powerful taut thriller" ~Mystery Gazette
"Lyons proves once again that she is a master of suspense." ~RT Book Reviews

"Tinged with a compelling sense of dread, there are echoes of Kathy Reichs here, but Lyons has her own distinctive voice, and one that is a little more compassionate. She allows her female protagonist to become much more than just a woman in peril." ~Daily Mail
"Smart and intriguing, and her character development is so incredible that she leaves me literally breathless waiting to see what will happen next." ~Becky Lejeune, Bookbitch.com

Devil Smoke is a winner. I love the Lucy series but C. J. Lyons knows how to keep Lucy fresh and exciting. This is the 2nd book in her new job at Beacon Falls. Very emotional story. You will not want to put it down. I know you will want to read all of her books. Thanks C. J. for another great read.

I just loved Devil Smoke, I was turning pages as I couldn`t wait to see what was next and my Kindle`s battery needed charging. I was so upset. It is a great mystery, I know you will enjoy it. I love the Lucy series and I think you would too and if you haven`t read the whole series, you would enjoy it. When I see C J Lyons name on a book I know I will enjoy it
