Vancouver, WA, August 17, 2014 --( Barking Rain Press, a non-profit fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of the noir thriller "Stress Fractures" by New Hampshire author J.E. Seymour. "Stress Fractures" is the second book in the "Kevin Markinson" series; "Lead Poisoning" was the first book in the series. A third book, "Frostbite," is also planned.

Everyone has a breaking point, but mob “troubleshooter” Kevin Markinson hasn’t been broken… yet. Serving as a Marine sniper in Vietnam didn’t make him snap. Working as a CIA assassin didn’t faze him. Doing time in prison for a crime he didn’t commit was hard, but he managed to keep his tough and cool façade in place. But when his mob boss decides to break him out of prison, he begins to discover cracks in his armor as things go from bad to worse. Little fissures open larger stress fractures as first he is injured and then taken hostage by a gang of thugs—along with a teenager. With law enforcement closing in, can Markinson keep himself from falling completely apart long enough to protect the kid and avoid a return trip to prison?
