The Cockroach Society
Fred Dowd, author
On a cold winter's morning, a rental car pulls up to Catherine Robinson's driveway, and an attorney from China knocks on her door. His singular mission was to deliver an envelope, containing a letter from an old Chinese college friend she hadn't been involved with for 20 years. The letter has dire consequences for Catherine, those she loves, and the rest of the world. This thriller with a strong female lead and other interesting characters will leave you hungry for the next page. It's ordinary people thrust into extraordinary circumstances and how they rise or fall to the challenge. A sequel is in the works.
