Following clues - Ninety-Five by Lisa Towles

“Heart-poundingly intense and palpably realistic, Lisa Towles’ new thriller yanks you into a story that you cannot put down” - Louis Kirby, MD, Bestselling author of Shadow of Eden

"Her descriptive character development was among the best I've read. I think Tom Hanks should have a look at this enchanting mystery thriller!" - Don Kirchner, Bestselling author of A Matter of Time

Description:

Troubled University of Chicago student, Zak Skinner, accidentally uncovers evidence of an on-campus, organized crime scam involving drugging students, getting them to commit crimes on camera, and blackmailing them to continue under the threat of expulsion. Digging deeper, Zak discovers that the university scam is just the tip of the iceberg, as it’s connected to a broader ring of crimes linked to a darkweb underworld. Following clues, Zak is led to a compound within Chicago’s abandoned Steelworker Park, only to discover that he’s being hunted. While trying to find his way out alive, Zak discovers there’s something much more personal he’s been running from – his past. And now there’s nowhere to hide.

“Ninety-Five is a heart-pounding, non-stop thrill ride with a devilish puzzle at the heart of it. Forget edge-of-your-seat, you'll be up and pacing around the room! Highly recommend." - Benjamin Bradley, author of crime thrillers such as Welcome to the Punkhorns

“Crisp dialogue, imaginative storytelling, and humorous introspection deliver a transformative concoction that will leave you wanting more” - Leo Bottary, Award-Winning Author of The Power of Peers, What Anyone Can Do, and Peernovation

Sometimes not knowing is better. Sometimes knowing saves others. Sometimes knowledge is a burden. What do you feel as the author is the best of the three?
