Meet the Author

His lifelong love of reading coupled with an overactive imagination fueled the creation of Jim McLaughlin's novels. Starting with comic books as a kid, Jim is never without a good book at his side. A career move to Chicago was the spark that ignited the story behind "The James Charade". The economic downturn set in motion the central theme in "The Leveler". "Two Billion Reasons to Kill???" features Burton James, the popular character first introduced to the world in "The James Charade".Born in Iowa and raised in Prairie Village, Kansas, Jim spent the majority of his career in the medical equipment industry, working for large companies before plunging headfirst into the wonderful world of entrepreneurship by starting and selling two successful medical equipment businesses in the Kansas City area.Now retired, Jim spends his time reading and writing. He loves to travel with his wife, is addicted to water sports, is lousy at golf but still likes to play, and spends his spare time in his bead studio where he practices the age old art of lampwork.Jim's favorite authors are Catherine Coulter (catherinecoulter.com), Lawrence Sanders (may God rest his soul), and Robert B. Parker (now writing in Heaven with Lawrence Sanders).

Another great read featuring Burton James. Much shorter than "The James Charade" but very well written with good character development. Lots of twists and turns leading to a conclusion I would have not expected. Thanks to the author for making his work free!!!

Terrific book. I enjoyed every minute of it. If you like a quick read with surprises in each new chapter this is the book for you. Normally I can pretty well figure out the end of a novel two thirds of the way in, but not with this book. Burton James kept me guessing every step of the way. Outstanding book and well worth the price.
