Read full description of the books Rock Paper Tiger:American Iraq War veteran Ellie Cooper is down and out in Beijing when a chance encounter with a Uighur—a member of a Chinese Muslim minority—at the home of her sort-of boyfriend Lao Zhang turns her life upside down. Lao Zhang disappears, and suddenly multiple security organizations are hounding her for information. They say the Uighur is a terrorist. Ellie doesn’t know what’s going on, but she must decide whom to trust among the artists, dealers, collectors, and operatives claiming to be on her side—in particular, a mysterious organization operating within a popular online role-playing game. As she tries to elude her pursuers, she’s haunted by memories of Iraq. Is what she did and saw there at the root of the mess she’s in now?
Read information about the authorLisa Brackmann has worked as an executive at a major motion picture studio, an issues researcher in a presidential campaign, and the singer/songwriter/bassist in an LA rock band. She still takes pride in her karaoke-ready repertoire of bad pop hits and an embarrassing number of show tunes. A Southern California native, she recently returned to her hometown, San Diego CA, and has lived and traveled extensively in China.
Brackman's debut novel, ROCK PAPER TIGER (YEAR OF THE TIGER), set on the fringes of the Chinese art world, made several "Best of 2010" lists, including Amazon's Top 100 Novels and Top 10 Mystery/Thrillers, and was nominated for the Strand Magazine Critics Award for Best First Novel. Her second novel is GETAWAY (DAY OF THE DEAD), a thriller set in Mexico, which has been chosen as an Amazon Best Novel of the Month and a finalist for SCIBA's T. Jefferson Parker Award. HOUR OF THE RAT, the second Ellie McEnroe novel, was shortlisted for LCC's Best Novel with a foreign setting and the Anthony for Best Audio Book.
The third novel in the Ellie McEnroe series, DRAGON DAY, was published in August 2015 to a Booklist starred review. Her next, GO BETWEEN, comes out July 5, 2016.
