* The Courier *
* Gordon J. Campbell *
* Thriller *
An expatriate businessman, Gregg Westwood, leaves the Officers’ Club
at an American Air Base in Japan unaware about the impression he’s made
on two intelligence agents. They sized him up as someone with potential
for strategic deployment, and more importantly, he’s under the radar.
Gregg’s exploits start with what he thinks is a one-off assignment as
a courier, and the straightforward task spirals out of control. He’s
forced to rise to the occasion and use every resource available to
survive. Even his family is jeopardized which forces him to return to
Japan to settle scores.
The Courier is one man’s struggle to fight for survival in a world
that he’s not been trained for and where violence and retribution are
the names of the game.
“The Bottom Line: One of the year’s best thrillers.”
“With such fine attention to detail in creating some amazing scenes, I
give The Courier 4 out of 4 stars. Campbell creates an amazing and
well-edited adventure that could even someday work on the big screen.
Readers that enjoy action adventures or thrillers will likely enjoy this
one as well.”
–Official review by Kendra M Parker, OnlineBookClub.org
“The Courier is an exciting ride from start to finish. I couldn’t put it down and wanted more when it finished.”
–Gyle Graham, entrepreneur and longtime Tokyo expatriate
“The Courier would transform well from a thriller novel to an action movie.”
–Michael Harrison, marketing expert and martial artist

· What is on your nightstand?
I listen to audiobooks and am currently alternating between The Silent Patient and a book on leadership skills called Traction. Lee Child’s Blue Moon and Robert Dugoni’s My Sister’s Grave were last week’s entertainment while I drove around Tokyo or washed dishes.
· What author would you totally fan?
This writer is not worth the crumbs from the tables of the likes of James Lee Burke, Robert Crais, and Gregg Hurwitz. Everything they produce must be purchased as soon as their audiobooks are released.
· What makes you cringe?
It’s difficult for me to watch an action movie involving violence with sharp objects. I must have had a bad experience with knives or another type of bladed weapon in another life.
· Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
Sometimes it’s better to have a compass and a solid sense of direction as the sun rises in the east. The second book in the series featuring Gregg Westwood is being planned with more detail than The Courier, but my compass will trump the map.
· Is there a word you love to use?
There are several words used whenever possible and with careful timing. “Sensational, one hundred percent, thank you, and boy is my face red.”
Also, if you have any pictures of your pet you would like to share, please attach them. My readers love animals! Please let me introduce Oliver who can be witnessed trying to encourage my writing efforts. Oliver makes an appearance in The Courier where he remains very much in character.
