Release date: September 8th, 2018
"At the intersection of current issues and events, Black Swan Rising is a gripping story that rockets forward with action and suspense, but leaves a wake of things to think about. Lisa Brackmann makes us care in fiction in such a riveting way that it spurs us to also care right out here in the open in our daily lives. This is the sort of rare convergence that makes for a big hit."--Jamie Mason, author of Three Graves Full, Monday's Lie
"Lisa Brackmann's Black Swan Rising is a savvy, riveting thriller that's also deeply human, with characters who are as authentic as they are compelling."--Lou Berney, Edgar Award-winning author of The Long and Faraway Gone
"Black Swan Rising is a must-read for everyone who cares about what's happening in our country."--Libby Fischer Hellmann, author of Set The Night on Fire
"Lisa Brackmann pulls no punches. Black Swan Rising is full throttle from the very first sentence. A mass-shooting, cyber-stalking, racism, misogyny, and political deceit: It all comes together in an urgent story that vibrates with suspense. Pulse-pounding and thought-provoking, Black Swan Rising is a smart thriller that captures the heat of our country's moral and civic battles."--Kim Fay, author of The Map of Lost Memories, an Edgar Award Finalist for Best First Novel
"Black Swan is as devious as it is elegant. A raw and masterful mystery thriller that explores the real darkness of the human soul. Brava!"--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-Wars and Glimpse
"Lisa Brackmann is the New York Times best-selling author of the Ellie McEnroe novels set in China and the thrillers Getaway and Go-Between. The first Ellie book, Rock Paper Tiger was one of Amazon Top 100 Books of the Year and a Top 10 Mystery/Thriller. Hour Of The Rat, the sequel, was shortlisted for Left Coast Crime’s international mystery award and was nominated for the Anthony Award for Best Audio Book. Dragon Day, the third novel in the Ellie McEnroe trilogy, was a Seattle Times Top 10 Mystery of 2015 and was short-listed for a Lefty award. Getaway was an Amazon Best Book of the Month and a finalist for SCIBA’s T. Jefferson Parker award. Her latest novel is Go-Between, “a terrific noir tale that channels Richard Stark’s stories” and a “Hottest Summer Books” selection from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Black Swan Rising, her new book about misogyny, mass shootings, and polarized politics, launches Sept. 8, 2018. Her work has also appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Travel+Leisure, Salon, Los Angeles Review of Books and CNET. She lives in San Diego with a cat, far too many books and a bass ukulele, and she’s playing in a band again after a 17-year break."
