Greetings. Welcome to my website and blog “Prepare for Turbulence.”
I write crime fiction and thrillers, including the bestselling Frank Pavlicek private eye novels. Just out, the first book in a new series, Dragonflies: Shadow Of Drones.
Now available as an original ebook. You can read all about it HERE.
What people are saying:
“…Dragonflies nails the sweet spot where science fiction meets thriller. The technology seems all too real and the story all too plausible…Straka’s dreamed up a helluva team for a helluva series. What a ride!”
–John Gilstrap, NY Times bestselling Author of the Jonathan Grave thriller series
“I found myself drawn to Dragonflies for a few different reasons; the engaging mix of genres (Sci-Fi, Mystery, Thriller), the protagonist (a confident and strong female), and because a long time ago I wanted to be a helicopter pilot. So this title allowed me to escape into a world that I have always been interested in, while mixing in mysterious government projects, crime, conspiracy, and perhaps a hint of a future romance….with a skillfully crafted plotline, suspenseful build-up and a climatic cliffhanger you can guarantee I’ll be impatiently waiting to read the second in the series.”
– NetGalley Devours Reviews
“A rocket-ride of a thriller and a fascinating glimpse into a technology that is coming to a future near you, all wrapped up in a mystery that will keep the pages turning….Andy Straka is soaring once again.” – Brad Parks, Shamus, Nero and Lefty Award-winning author of THE GOOD COP
How to order:
I hope you enjoy reading both the Pavlicek series and the new Dragonflies series as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them!
