We’ll Quit When We’re Dead by AP Rawls

We'll quit when we're dead

Super spy Kori Briggs is back!

Rampart secret agent Kori Briggs "remains a bright, intuitive, and worldly character" (Kirkus Reviews) in this "engaging" second installment of the A.P. Rawls series of Kori Briggs spy thrillers.

Everyone's favorite secret agent is once again globetrotting around the world to save the day. This time she's investigating a real and imminent threat from a foreign power, a potential terrorist act on American soil so extensive that its successful deployment could well result in World War III.

Follow Kori from San Francisco to Vancouver to Istanbul as she races against time to prevent a cataclysmic collision with destiny.

With Kori Briggs, A.P. Rawls has once again crafted "a refreshingly modern feminine take on James Bond" (BookLife) and penned a fast-moving suspense thriller.
There is action, there is romance, there is adventure. And behind it all, there is the incomparable spirit of Kori Briggs.

Q. What's special about Kori?
A. There are a lot of great suspense novels and suspense thriller books out there, but a lack, I believe, of really great female spy thrillers. I think the world is ready for a real badass heroine and Kori Briggs fits the bill. She can do it all. And is a fun character to boot.

Q. This is a series. Is it necessary to read the books in order?
A. Not at all! Each book is a standalone adventure.

Q. Will we be seeing more of Kori?
A. Oh, much more. "We'll Quit When We're Dead"" is just the second in a series of female spy books that feature Kori as the protagonist. Following this one will be "Danger Level 4." I'm putting the finishing touches on it even now. Yes, indeed, we'll be seeing plenty more of super spy Kori Briggs.

Q. How do you develop your plots?
I want the stories to be relevant. Writing a female thriller novel, or any suspense novel, asks the reader, at times, to suspend a little disbelief here and there, but that doesn't mean you can't have a realistic story line. I want my stories to be reflective of the world we live in. The dangers Kori faces are real-world dangers. The Kori Briggs series consists of political thrillers and crime thrillers, and they need to be genuine. One reviewer of "The Dark Tetrad" said the story could just as easily appear on tomorrow's front page. That was gratifying. That's what I'm going for. I think readers will find the same thing with "We'll Quit When We're Dead."

Q. How has the reception been thus far for the Kori Briggs series of suspense spy thrillers?
Better than I ever could have imagined! I've heard from so many people who have had such wonderful things to say about the series. My gratitude to everybody!
