Letter J April A to Z Challenge #AtoZChallenge

Day 10 of the April A to Z Challenge and my these is characters from books I’ve read, plus a little audience participation piece.

Letter J is for John Steel from Rise Of A Phoenix by Phill Syron-Jones

Rise Of The Phoenix by Phill Syron-Jones

Rise Of The Phoenix by Phill Syron-Jones

 

Rise of a Phoenix is an exciting action thriller set in New York. It opens with kidnapping and a brutal murder. Homicide detective Samantha McCall and her team soon find themselves on the trail of a serial murderer.

Mixed with this is the exciting figure known by many names such as The Shadow, The Phoenix and The Lone Wolf. John Steel ex-Navy SEAL operative, joins the NYPD team whilst on his own search for Santini. The name behind a vicious past that drives Steel forward. Steel reminded me of James Bond at times as the action took off involving Russians, hired thugs, homeless men and an array of weaponry.

There are plenty of twists and turns and the storyline kept me enthralled until the end.

For my audience participation I’d like you to think up book titles using the letter J for the picture below.

A book title and cover picture can often make or break a book sale. Is a book cover eye-catching? Does the book title appeal to the reader?

Have fun creating book titles from my own pictures, you might even think about a genre they could fit.
