Overview

TOURING FOR DEATH is the fourth novella in the Kate Jones Thriller Series.

Kate Jones is hiding out from her shady past driving jeep tours through the rugged high desert of northern Arizona, determined to stop looking over her shoulder and find peace from her mistake of a gun-toting, former life. Testifying against a Mexican drug lord and a dirty DEA agent didn't turn out to be a life enhancing choice and she's been on the move ever since.

Now, five years have passed with no sign of trouble and Kate's finally starting to believe she's safe. Her current goal is to make enough money so she can get lost in the tropics when the tourist trade dies off. Unfortunately, it's the tourists that are dying off and she may be next.

When Kate and Sheriff Cole Anderson join forces to catch the killer, sparks fly. Kate has to decide if it's safe to trust him with her secrets. But trusting him could mean death-

- for both of them.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Darlene Panzera
"...Kate is a strong, highly-capable woman with a past she fears may be catching up with her. In this longer novella, the pacing is fast and intense as Kate tries to find who is killing off people on her jeep tour before she herself is counted among the dead. Great hooks, mystery, and love the romance between Kate and Cole! I'd highly recommend this story to anyone who loves mystery, acton, and adventure! 5 stars!"
Review my Book - Todd A. Fonseca
"...D.V. Berkom's "Touring for Death" is the latest in the Kate Jones series of books. Similar to the preceding book - "Death Rites" - Berkom has added plot complexity to her patented action packed writing style. This is a bit more of a murder mystery than the other books and there are just enough hints provided along the way that the reader has the opportunity to figure out who done. But it won't be easy, at least it wasn't for me..."
Amazon - Jennifer Conner
"...A fun thing about novella length books are if the writer is good, like Ms. Berkom, the reader is kept at the edge of your seat the whole read! From beginning to end Kate gets herself in so many pickles she should be in a vat! AND manages to snag the super sexy town sheriff, Cole, along the way. A little romance and a whole lot of action. This is a must for anyone who wants a fun read to escape!"
Amazon - Vicki Drake
"...Kate's in Arizona now and is working as a tour guide. It doesn't take long for people to start dying all around her. What's odd though, is that she is usually the target...Seems she should have high-tailed it out of town anyway, because things go south fast. There is a brief romance, but most of the story is filled with the nail-biting danger this author is so good at writing. Fun stuff!"

Meet the Author

DV Berkom is a slave to the voices in her head. As the author of two bestselling thriller series (Leine Basso and Kate Jones), her love of creating resilient, kick-*ss female characters stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those pages.

Raised in the Midwest, she received her BA in political science from the University of Minnesota and promptly moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Many, many cross-country moves (and several years) later, she now lives just outside of Seattle, Washington with the love of her life, Mark, an ex-chef-turned contractor, and writes every chance she gets.

    Twice The Danger!

    DV Berkom has done it again. I feel as though Kate Jones is a friend I need to look out for, but she does a great job of getting out of her own snares. Although Kate has had a reprieve for a few years from the perilous life she is destined to live because of her past, she soon finds out that the past she has been running from has once again found her. Ms. Berkom fuels our addiction to her adventurous tales this time, however, by offering not one, but two distinctly different, but equally deadly villains with plots that will surely cause an untimely end to the life Kate has come to love, if she is not able to thwart them first. A ride on the proverbial edge of your seat, Kate must fight like never before to survive. But there is still time for Kate to experience the passions we all know she possesses, when a new and alluring character, Cole, a man in law enforcement who not only possesses a rugged exterior, but a tender side as well, is introduced. You will find yourself falling over the edge right along with Kate. Kate is forced to once again confide in someone she cares about, hoping all the while that she is not putting him and his family, for he has two young daughters, in danger. Ms. Berkom leaves us wondering if Kate will stay in Arizona for a while, basking in the love Cole has to offer her, or if she will once again move on, roaming the world looking for a place safe from the far reaches of Salazar and his army of thugs, turned bounty hunters, who will stop at nothing to collect the reward on Kate's head. Filled with action, adventure, suspense like you've never known, and a bit of romance, Touring for Death alludes to what the pages hold, but it is much more and definitely worth the read.

    How Safe is Safe?

    After spending five peaceful years as a tour guide in a small Arizona town, Kate is finally feeling comfortable and safe. Why her tourist clients suddenly start turning up dead is a shock and a new and complete mystery to her. In the past, she knew the danger that surrounded her came from her Mexican ex-drug lord former lover. This time she has no idea who's behind the murders. The only upside to the strange happenings is it brings her into close contact with the handsome and recently divorced town sheriff, Cole.
    Her life becomes even more complicated when a spurned admirer, who she never realized was interested slips a "roofie" into her drink and hands her over to the corrupt DEA agent she testified against ten years earlier. After a harrowing escape, she's still left confused. She understands why the former DEA agent wanted her dead. The spurned admirer told her why he wanted revenge. The question that remains for her and Cole: Who's killing her clients?
    A fast paced, clever story and a must for Kate Jones adventure fans.

    One crazy life!

    Kate has a pretty crazy life and apparently nine lives. A bit over the top and non stop. Quick read. No real development of the people, rather like a television episode of a girl on the run. Entertaining.
