Mystery Team Foils High-Profile Assassination in San Francisco in Breakout Novel by Ben English

Action, heart, and high-tech intrigue showcased in Jack Be Nimble: Tyro, the second novel in the high-octane romantic thriller series.

San Francisco, CA, February 27, 2012 --( Readers who enjoy “a winding tale of espionage and intrigue” will find it difficult to put down the Jack Be Nimble series, according to Carol MacKenzie of The Life of Fiction review blog. “Jack Be Nimble is nothing short of genius, and is sure to be a fantastic series.”

The second book in the Jack Be Nimble thriller series, Tyro begins moments after the harrowing events related in the first book, Jack Be Nimble: Gargoyle. Jack Flynn and his friends have struck a blow against the forces of a wealthy, sadistic technologist bent on unspeakable destruction, but a single blow by itself cannot turn the tide of their secret war, and Jack must divide his team to realize any chance of defeating the hidden army arrayed against them.

Mercedes Adams evades assassins sent against her, only to be visited by a more dangerous, intimate threat from her past. As her path brings her closer and closer to Jack—on a mad dash from Paris to San Francisco to Los Angeles to Havana, Cuba—Mercedes discovers the path to survival lies in the lessons learned years ago in the freshness of youth, lessons learned by an eager boy, a maverick, an earnest novice …a Tyro.

Jack Be Nimble: Tyro is a rousing, suspenseful action story as well as a brilliant coming-of-age tale showing how the choices we make in youth determine our trajectory as adults, and how as adults we can determine our own destinies.
