As one of the world's leading authorities on technology, Malcolm Fitzpatrick uses his expertise to identify a unique brand of criminal: the privileged killer. These über-successful men sacrifice innocent lives in their pursuit of wealth, power, and greatness. Alarmed by their growing presence in Europe and the courts’ unwillingness to hold them accountable, Malcolm decides to intervene personally.
In Paris, meanwhile, investigative journalist Camille Chevalier has written an incendiary story detailing despicable acts committed by three prominent Parisians. Before it goes to press, however, her editor leaks the story to one of the perpetrators, placing her life in imminent danger. To survive, Camille goes underground where she encounters an unlikely benefactor, Malcolm.
Together they devise a plan to ensure the men identified in her story never harm anyone again. The ensuing cat-and-mouse chase crisscrosses Europe through Monte Carlo, Cannes, Geneva, and, finally, Paris, where an explosive, nail-biting finale occurs.

About the Author
Welcome to my Smashwords author page. Thanks for visiting!! I just released my latest novel, An Absence of Justice, in September 2015. With first-rate writing, credible dialogue, and a riveting plot, it makes an exceptional read for any fan of suspense. Throw in a couple unforgettable characters, several bombshells, and plenty of heart-pounding action and you have one of the year's best thrillers. Critics say: "A complex, international thriller ... that will hold the reader's attention from the first page to the last ... [It is] too good to put down and will leave you on the edge of your seat ... With any luck, Cyr has already started working on a sequel." (San Francisco Book Review). "Highly Recommended" ... "A highly satisfying novel you soon won't forget ... When you turn the last page you'll be begging Cyr to focus an entire series around the truly memorable protagonist." (BestThrillers.com). "Thriller-aficionados will unite in praise for An Absence of Justice ... A compelling, satisfying thrill ride [that] has it all; suspense, intrigue, surprises, and depth of plot." (Portland Book Review). Critics call my earlier novel, An Unexpected Outcome, which was released in March 2015: "A gripping, tragic portrait ... with complex, sympathetic main characters." (Kirkus Reviews). "Suspenseful...A story with many twists." (San Francisco Book Review). I encourage you to pick up a copy of both these books, as well as my first novel, An Accidental Abduction. And don't forget to recommend them to a friend and post a review on your favorite book review website. The projected release of my next novel is the spring of 2016. Check back for details. For those interested, let me share a little about my background. I took a circuitous path to writing, spending more than a dozen years in finance before exiting the corporate world in 2013 to focus full-time on writing. I have lived in fourteen states and on two continents, and traveled to more than thirty countries. Those travels have exposed me to myriad cultures, peoples, and customs and a host of interesting encounters. I draw on those diverse experiences to create vibrant, authentic, and complex characters that I hope you enjoy. I live with my family in the Midwest where I love to cycle and photograph wildlife.
