Plan X by Lise McClendon

An international thriller for the lover of intrigue, secrets, and spies. When a cop finds a trove of ancient documents that may — or may not — be an undiscovered Shakespeare play, she follows the lead wherever it goes, to Washington, DC., and across the ocean. A character-driven, high-octane adventure for readers of John LeCarre and Daniel Silva.

“A thoughtful thriller that takes Officer Cody Byrne around the globe in a series of murderous twists that include shocking personal discovery, Shakespearean drama and royal connections that she never could have seen coming.” — Indie Reader Approved.

PLAN X is both thrilling and sophisticated. In a serpentine story that races from small-town Montana to the vaulted halls of Windsor Castle, nothing is as it seems, including the works of the great Shakespeare himself. Former military and current police officer Cody Byrne is unforgettable– a heroine you want to root for. I love this book!
–New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author J. Carson Black

It should have been simple, this finding the next-of-kin. But for Officer Cody Byrne the explosion that injures the Shakespeare professor is more than suspicious. So begins the unraveling of a man’s life, a man’s secrets, his loves and birthright, as Cody follows his trail to Washington, DC, then London, trying to glean something of his shadowed past from the Renaissance documents he left behind.

It begins in Montana, but soon takes her on a global journey, as well as a psychic one, after an Iraq tour as an Army Reservist leaves her shaken. Eager that no one finds out about her PTSD, she toughs it out, even while grieving for her brother lost in Afghanistan. A challenge coin he left behind is another mystery, the blank side and the side that says: PLAN X: Always with you, Wherever you go. Cody’s journey takes her back to the family she hardly knows, and the surprising revelations of a professor’s past.

  1. Thank you so so much for all your effort with all the emails you send to your readers!!! Please DO KNOW that I appreciate and enjoy every single book whether they are free or not!!! Thanks again!!!!

  2. Redemption code???? for PlanX?? If you don’t know the code, try asking the person who shared the link??? Really???
    If the book is featured on this page, then where is the redemption code? I guess you have to be signed up for the writer’s newsletter to get the code, but…..since the book can’t be accessed without the code, than you can’t accept the writer’s newsletter. Makes a lot of sense to me!!!!
    I appreciate being able to access free books but I don’t understand the requirement of a redemption code if the books are supposed to be free.
