Blood Line is a high-voltage spy thriller that redefines rogue—the Granger Spy Novel series introduces a loving family with lethal issues caught in the crosshairs of global arms dealers.
When a simple home invasion turns out to be not so simple, Ron Granger must put aside his quiet rural life and return to the Central Intelligence Agency.
Aided by his brilliant wife, Valerie, and resourceful teen daughter, Leecy, Ron must quickly decide who to believe among the calculating opportunists, shrewd criminals, and power-hungry rival agencies racing to possess the technology that will change modern warfare forever. But when Leecy is kidnapped, Ron and Val must choose between the mission and a rescue. With time quickly running out, Ron only knows one thing:
When you can’t trust anyone else, trust your family.

“I want to show you a trick,” we heard Leecy saying.
“You know a trick?” the target asked. “I can’t wait to see what it is.”
“I think you will like it.”
Looking through the glass window of the passageway door seeing Leecy land a spinning back fist on the chin of the target, dropping him with one punch before removing an auto injector from her thigh holster dosed with phenobarbital injecting the target, I said to Valerie, “that’s a nice trick.”
“Yes it is,” Val said. “I taught her everything I know.”
Arriving at the station, the First Class car door of the train opened to reveal Hodges and Franks dressed like paramedics standing next to a gurney. The ambulance, Franks was driving and Hodges rode shotgun, while Val and I rode in the rear with the prisoner and Leecy. Taking the prisoners picture, scanning his fingerprints and palm prints with an iPad, we emailed the data to Zach for analysis.
“We have the package,” Leecy informed the other team members via her earpiece, “and we’re en route to Kent International Airport. ETA is fifty minutes.”

John J. Davis is the author of the Granger Spy Novel series, including Blood Line and the soon to be published sequel, Bloody Truth, available Spring 2015.
Davis grew up in the Southeastern US and after university traveled extensively in North America during his career as a regional sales rep and independent broker for leaders in the transportation, shipping and pharma industries. His years sitting in lobbies and airports honed his skill for human observation and fed his talent for writing fast-paced, character-driven stories.
His inspiration for the Granger family-of-spies comes from the people he has known and his family roots in the Carolinas–the extraordinarily strong and gentle women and men, whose lives are defined by the love, trust and respect for family. Currently at work on the third Granger Spy Novel and a screenplay, Davis lives near Atlanta with his wife, daughter and two dogs.
