About the Author

Chris Beakey tells stories of good people caught in bad places. He writes fiction from his homes in Washington, D.C. and Lewes, Delaware, as well as nonfiction as a ghostwriter for an organization that promotes bipartisan policies that strengthen the nation through smart investments in youth. His first, novel, Double Abduction, was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award.


"The tension starts high in this novel . . . Beakey parallels his thriller plot with an engaging family drama . . . it's all packaged within a taut narrative . . . a character-driven tale that maintains its sincerity, even in its most nerve-wracking moments."--Kirkus Reviews
"A wintry tale of violence and redemption, artfully balanced by a touching portrayal of a family in crisis."--Peter Swanson, author of THE KIND WORTH KILLING
"Emotionally visceral. The violence and action sequences really gripped me and I loved the strength of the teenage girl, Sara. I loved the ending too. What subtlety! There's a sense of the world restored but not quite. Not sugar-coated and not expected either. Completely real."--Jordan Dane, bestselling author and recipient of Publisher's Weekly Best Book and Readers' Choice Awards
"A story about the devastating moral consequences of a dangerous choice. Relentlessly suspenseful, with brisk pacing and intrigue on every page."--Norb Vonnegut, bestselling author of Top Producer and The Trust
"Fatal Option grabs you from the first page as a complex tale about a family in crisis and murder. Plan to stay up late."--Kathleen Antrim, Co-President, International Thriller Writers and author of Capital Offense
"A sharp, intelligent thriller . . . Really top notch."--Neely Tucker, author of Only the Hunted Run
