A bomb shatters the midnight silence, giving Mark and Kate only seconds to escape before their sailboat turns into a flaming hell. At the same time, a wrecking crew batters down the wall of their shop to steal a crucial tool the CIA needs to prevent a neo-Nazi takeover in Eastern Europe. Only a bump in the night kept their first overnight sail from being their last.
Finding Pegasus is the story of an international criminal network marching in lockstep with the neo-Nazi autocrats of Eastern Europe; a paranoid, egocentric American Navy admiral; an old and bitter Silicon Valley billionaire; and a retired Hungarian spy who moved to Paris because the food was better.
It should have been a perfect crime – witnesses dead, evidence spirited away, police not interested. But Eddie Grant helps Mark McGinley and Kate Hall follow the clues from Biscayne Bay to Paris, then on to the mountains of Hungary. There, the caves hide explosive secrets and the group must confront a new generation of storm troopers, this time supported by the Russian bear. The second escape is as close as the first.
Finding Pegasus is the third in the Eddie Grant novel series. For information about review copies, go to PartTimeParisian.com

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite Finding Pegasus by John Pearce is a fast-paced action thriller that would actually make a really good movie or a TV series. This is the third novel in the Eddie Grant series and I have not read the previous two novels. However, this meant very little because I was invested in the story immediately. Eddie is such a likable character, one who knows what he is doing and how he should take charge of the situation. He is among those strong characters that carry the story and give it a new life. I enjoyed his complexities, his charm and his witty demeanor a lot. The story begins with a bomb blast in the still of the night. While the bomb wreaks havoc, a team steals weapons that the CIA was hoping to use in the war against neo-Nazis. Barely getting away alive from the bomb blast, Eddie and Kate are joined by Mark to find out who has these very important weapons and what they want to do with them. However, finding them is not easy, especially when they have to search countries to even come up with a clue. Can they do it? Can they find the truth in time? These characters were amazing. I enjoyed how cool they were and how in tune they were with each other. I enjoyed the chemistry between Eddie and Kate and enjoyed the relationship between these two and Mark. They gave strength to each other and they added brilliance to the story. The flow of the story was great; the plot moved effortlessly and the author made sure that the characters had the space and the time to develop properly. Simply amazing, I enjoyed Finding Pegasus immensely.
Paris, international-crime-and-mystery, Europe, Florida, spies, governments, thriller A murder in Paris, attempted murder and theft of classified prototypes in Florida, a crazed USN admiral who wants to rule his own country and the former naval officer ex wife who now has a doctorate in engineering and helped develop those prototypes. It might be easier to have read the prior books, but I can't testify to that as I read them two years ago and didn't binge read them before sticking my nose in this one. It certainly is a thrill ride with twists, surprises, and fascinating characters. The publisher's blurb is somewhat informative but the writing is so much better than that. It kept me reading into the night!
