Marlton, NJ, September 13, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Novelist, actor and director Stephen R. Coar announced today the release of The Deadly Track, A Ride Against Time, published by Outskirts Press. Coar’s latest thriller provides non-stop action in the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey as two brain damaged foes play a deadly game of cat and mouse which climaxes atop one of the nation’s most famous bridges.
FBI Special Agent Les Cody has been retired to desk duty after suffering a gunshot wound to his brain while saving a foreign diplomat from two assassins who are brothers bent on the politico’s death. Cody kills one brother, but the other escapes with a vow to seek bloody revenge on the killer of his sibling.
Cody is taken out of the field because of his head injuries and their side effects, but after six years he becomes frustrated when he realizes his crime fighting skills have returned to normal. In a surprise move his regional director then suddenly assigns Cody to lead the investigation of a series of train bombings in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.
Unbeknownst to Cody, the psychotic techno-genius, Max Tierson, is suffering from the same neurological wounds Cody is. The dwarfish, deformed little man has a deep seated hatred of trains, and after one more train explodes, Cody begins to close in, but his wife and daughter are also now the targets of a lethal threat by the deadly foe.
With a commuter train crossing the Delaware River quickly approaching, the stunning, double conclusion of Coar’s thriller ends up taking place on the heights of one of the country’s most famous bridges.
The Deadly Track has more crazy characters than a packed car in Disneyland and more twists and turns than a locomotive speeding downhill without an engineer. It is a page turner in the best traditions of that term.

About the author:
Stephen R. Coar has been a teller of stories all his life. One of seven kids, he took the dinner table spotlight most evenings, telling his tales. As an adult he’s been heavily involved in live theatre -- acting, directing, and writing children’s plays for the theatre he helped begin, the Ritz Theatre in Oaklyn, a successful theatre in southern New Jersey. A longtime member of the New Jersey Storytellers League, he also volunteers about a dozen hours each month to read some of his original short stories to residents of active adult communities.
In 1993, the author suffered his own brain injuries in a near fatal auto accident. He is now permanently disabled, but still loves to create vivid fictional tales at his keyboard. He has used his unfortunate experiences, tried to turn them around, and use them to create his main characters. This way The Deadly Track – A Ride Against Time shows the power of inner strength and how life changing hurts can turn to hidden blessings.
