Gracie and the Trouble with Pinatas

What you see is not always what you get. 
In fact, what you see may be nothing at all. 

Finding a woman attacked and left for dead in her driveway hadn’t been anywhere near San Antonio law enforcement consultant Gracie Hofner’s cold January plans. She immediately jumps into action and soon discovers a link to what appears to be a benign local research institution. Of course, what seems to be often isn’t, and it takes a series of explosive illusions that rock a small slice of the city before Gracie and her coworkers understand the fuller picture: a rogue relationship between the research group and a corrupt faction inside the Pentagon. The shadow elements responsible for the explosions must be stopped before illusion becomes reality and mind-created objects become real and tangible… and deadly. 

Gracie Hofner is back on a new assignment in her first standalone Amazing Gracie Mystery that will be available on Monday, June 21, 2021.

The Kindle edition will be priced at 99 cents from June 21 through the July 4 weekend. Then it will revert to its regular $3.99 price.

The release date is special to me because it's my dad's birthday. I hope that's a good sign!
