BESTSELLING AUTHORS


“24/​7 will keep you up 24/​7. Jim Brown’s debut, a nightmarish twist on reality TV, is a finger-burning page-turner that you won’t be able to put down. The tribe has spoken: 24/​7 is a winner.”
– Harlan Coben

“24/​7 is a fast-paced, intense, impossible-to-put-down page-turner that takes place in the growing world of reality television – only in this case the stakes are ratcheted up considerably for both winners and losers. Readers who like their novels racing like a roller coaster will enjoy Jim Brown’s debut from first page to last.”
– John Katzenbach

“Black Valley is an incredible story – I’m still reeling.”
– Douglas Preston, Coauthor of The Cabinet of Curiosities

One more comment - if you love Mr. Brown's books, PLEASE go on to Amazon.com and do a review of the book. Authors really need the feedback from fans. Writing is a lonely job - fan comments make it all worthwhile.

LOVED 24/​7! Read it in one gigantic "readathon" (my own word). Plot, style, pacing, characters were all spot-on. Also loved the deeper underlying theme of morality in America revealed through a viewer participation Reality TV. Very sad.

Am also loving BOOM! Every day when I awaken I make sure that I DO NOT have a clock tatoo on my arm.

Please keep your books coming, Mr. Brown.

WOW is all I can say about BOOM! I LOVED IT!

We read for different reasons - to be enlightened, lost in romance, the excitement of a murder mystery, or pure entertainment. For pure entertainment, the name to look for is Jim Brown!
– Claudia Beierle

Wow. What an explosive beginning. I know I'm not the first to say that, but I couldn't resist. I'm not a book reviewer, but I just want to say how much I loved the first part of Boom. I like characters already. I can't begin to imagine how those tattoos work. I can't wait for future installments. Thank you so much.

- Rodney M

I like it very much!
-- Susie from Idaho

Ok...I love books and I'm ready for my close up Mr. DeMille!

so i signed up for the newsletter to read the new novel Boom. i am not sure how to get it as a e-book so please help.

I can't believe a major publisher did not pick up BOOM. a true nailbiter. I loved it. When's the next one ???

Boom was amazing! Keep the books coming!

You are a fantastic writer, a great friend and a wonderful man. I love you, Jim Brown! - Miranda Doerfler (@docsaico), Hudson Falls, NY

You’d have to be more than a genius to match wits with this author and his crime-fighting crew as they take on a high-tech, futuristic, explosive, and repulsive crime wave. Computer- and nano-technologies, chemistry, psychiatry, and physics combine to make the world a dangerous place that only a few select evil few can understand.

Kudos to Jim Brown for giving us a female hero whose physical strength and mental stamina make her a match for the vilest of men, yet who is realistically dependent on the help and knowledge of her team.

I can see this novel lighting up the big screen with aviations stunts, and explosions, and near-misses, and high-speed chases, and a school full of children at risk, and a mole, and passion, and blood. It could easily be our next “Speed”.

And now, you can breathe again…but just a for a moment…because the next explosion is just five seconds away…four, three, two, one…

BOOM!

BOOM was a terrifyingly fabulous book! I enjoyed every minute of it! It definitely kept me on edge to the very end! Thank you for such a great read!!

I absolutely love BOOM!. It is one of the most exciting, enthralling, interesting books I've read. Can't wait for the next chapter! - Miranda Doerfler (@docsaico)
