View Full Version : Beta reader wanted for thriller

11-06-2010, 12:29 AM
After working with three critique partners, I have polished my WIP and would like to find a beta reader or two before I begin the querying process. I would like to find someone who often reads thrillers. I certainly wouldn't mind working with another critique partner either.

If you are interested, please email me at acadia1997@msn.com.

My query is posted below:

He was a good man, a decent man. Thatís what Skylar Karras saw every time he looked in the mirror. Itís what everyone saw when they looked at him. A straight arrow, his brother once called him. But that was before. Before his brotherís accident took the lives of their parents and sister. Before his brother got them both mixed up with San Franciscoís Russian mafia. Before his wifeís identity was compromised, her life, and that of their unborn child, both forfeit in a moment of rage. Then everything changed.

Bitter beyond reason, Skylar macerates in alcohol. Heís driven into madness, his soul eaten away by his need for vengeance. His target is a stranger, the woman who drew his wife recklessly toward her death. He doesn't know her, but heíll find her and when he does, God, how she will pay! But many things happen that Sky doesnít count on, like mistaking the wrong woman for his intended victim.

Now all his plans have gone to hell. Sky, his eyes made clear by the stark reality of his mistake, is now driven, compelled by relentless remorse to make amends, to protect her, keep her safe and out of the hands of the merciless Russians who seek to enslave her. Skyís desperate journey toward redemption is paved with peril as he fights to free his brother from the depraved authority of the Russians. But he canít do it all: save the girl, his brother and his own soul. Someone must make the ultimate sacrifice.

THE MISTAKEN is an 85,000 word thriller and my first novel.
