Austin Conrad Thriller #4 | A Novel

The World Needs an Antihero
Who is Austin Conrad? He’s ex-US Army Special Forces, who left the service years ago under circumstances we’ve yet to learn about. Since leaving the Armye he’s been knocking heads with one of Southern California’s outlaw motorcycle clubs. He’s no angel. He’s been involved in some bad shit. But one day he stumbles on to something a few members of the club are up to, including the chapter president, which goes too far, even for Austin’s rather questionable moral compass. That story is told within the pages of Blood Brothers.
Austin is an aging biker, in his late 40’s. He is a tangled mess of long hair, tattoos, denim and leather. You’ve probably seen the type, hanging out at your local dive bar. He loves knives, whiskey and cheap cigars. Curvy women and outlaw country music. He’s tall, broad and imposing, but he’s sort of let himself go. A steady diet of gas station burritos and rotgut beer have made him a bit flabby around the middle. But his ex-brothers from the MC quickly find out that he’s still not one to mess with.
