Dale Conley Action Thrillers Series Book 3

Written by Erik Carter

Genre(s): Mystery, Thriller


The next standalone thriller in the bestselling, action-packed series.

Dale Conley is under pressure. His boss, his partner, the media—they all want answers. Because the bodies are piling up.

As he investigates a wave of race-related poisonings sweeping through New Orleans, Dale discovers that the murders are the work of a mysterious organization that aims to create a new slaveholding nation.

It’s a group so powerful that it was a major factor in the Civil War. It’s a group so secretive that it’s erased itself from history books for a hundred years.

But as Dale continues to pressure them, their secret is out. Now Dale has one chance to stop the villains before they disappear back into the shadows forever.

Mark's Review

I was gifted the audiobook. My review contains my own thoughts, and I'm not getting paid to say anything nice.

I'm always a little nervous when I read or listen to a book in a series when I am unfamiliar with the earlier books in the series. Though there are obvious references to earlier books (I believe), this book has many stand-alone features. The references are obvious, but what they are referring to could easily be backstory, not another book. Kind of like watching a TV episode or movie where the characters have history, and it's your job to figure out how that fits into the storyline. It's a risk worth taking because it gives the book an extra element of mystery.

Not that it needs more mystery. There's tons to go around. And the thriller elements don't disappoint either. In fact, the first chapter of the book starts the action with a bang. It slows down a little bit after that, but that's a good thing. An author needs to tell a story as well. One action sequence after another gets old fast.

The storyline itself is pretty straight forward, but anytime you are dealing with conspiracy theories and secret societies, you have to wonder how much you are truly learning, how many red herrings there are, and how much of the truth behind the mystery will forever stay in the shadows.


  1. While replica watches the case is subtle about its changes to the standard model, there’s no mistaking the dial of the TAG replica watches uk Heuer Monaco Grand Prix de Monaco Historique for a run-of-the-mill example. The striking fake rolex silver-on-red color scheme is immediately eye-catching, but it’s on closer inspection replica rolex that this combination really sets itself apart. The fiery red of the outer dial is finished with a dynamic sunburst, as is fake watches the inner silver dial, while the rest of the dial elements strictly follow the white and red pattern here. With most Monaco rolex replica designs opting for a three-tone (sunburst blue, with white and fake rolex uk red accents) layout, the Monaco Grand Prix de Monaco Historique feels a bit more cohesive and focused than the norm. Rather fake watches uk than a lengthy bit of special edition dial text, this watch handles the problem of announcing its partnership fake rolex in a far defter and more interesting way. Between 1 and 2 o’clock on the edge of the silver inner dial is a fake Breitling stylized retro Grand Prix car, the symbol of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique event. It’s a playful added detail to fake Omega an already flamboyant design, but it’s difficult not to fake Hublot wish that this piece had been placed perhaps where the “Automatic” dial text sits at 6 o’clock to avoid spoiling the dial fake Cartier symmetry.
