Bethany Books for Blokes!

Well, actually I'm very keen to read them all too :) There's nothing like a great suspense/thriller novel to get the blood pumping!

I hear great things about Robin's books (must get them out of my TBR pile!), I love Tom Morrisey's stories, especially Deep Blue and love the premise of Pirate Hunter and then there is debut author, Shawn Grady! His book looks and sounds fantastic and I'm always up for discovering a new author to add to my must read list.

Each of these books release in July, 2009 from Bethany.

Offworld by Robin Parrish

The return of NASA's first manned mission to Mars was supposed to be a momentous day. But when the crew loses touch with ground control before entry, things look bleak. Safe after a treacherous landing, the crew emerges to discover the
unthinkable--every man, woman, child, and animal has vanished without a trace.

Alone now on their home planet, the crew sets out to discover where everyone has gone--and how to get them back--only to discover they may not be as alone as they thought.

Pirate Hunter by Tom Morrisey

From the blue waters of the Caribbean and the Florida Keys to the wind-swept wilds of the Outer Banks, Pirate Hunter combines the romantic popularity of a pirate tale with an inspirational story of modern-day treasure hunters.

Following a captured slave who's been freed by the sixteenth-century pirate who takes his ship, the novel weaves a rollicking tale of adventure. Paralleling this story in the present are the treasure hunters seeking the gold--and stories--of the past. Greg Rhode--a preacher's kid who has become a marine archaeologist--hires on to participate in Phil Rackham's salvage operation in the Florida Keys. He is hoping that Rackham will make him rich, not suspecting the true riches he'll eventually confront.

Through the Fire by Shawn Grady

Firefighting burns in Aidan O'Neill's blood. The son of a fireman, O'Neill has a sixth sense about fire and often takes dangerous risks. When one act of disobedience nearly gets a rookie killed, O'Neill is suspended. His weeks off are supposed to be a time to reflect but instead he escapes to Mexico, where another rash act of bravery actually kills him. But only for a few minutes.

Called back to Reno, he's now haunted by visions of hell and paralyzed in the face of fire. And at the worst time, because an arsonist is targeting Reno. With a growing love interest with one of the investigators complicating everything, Aidan must discover where his trust rests as the fires creep ever closer.

Are any of the men in your life readers?

Which ones do you think will interest him, or will you be grabbing them first?

My husband mainly reads non-fiction, but I want to read Offworld!

Off World and Through the Fire are looking like a great adrenaline injection!

The only male close to me that reads is Dad. He reads more gentle things though. Lori Wick, Michael Phillips, Thoene's etc. I don't know that his blood pressure could cope with the edge-of-your-seat prospects you've posted here! LOL

In addition to his Bible reading, my hubby might read one or two NF books a YEAR (and no fiction). How did I ever hook up with this guy?? *grin*

As for me - I'll take all three, with Offworld (awesome cover) being at the top of the list.
