Deadfall is the first book I have read by Robert Liparulo. It won’t be my last. I was hooked from the first page although my cowardly side wanted me to put it away where I wouldn’t have to face what I knew was coming if I read it all.
The burning question raised by Deadfall is “What would happen if the wrong people got hold of the ultimate weapon?” Robert Liparulo explores that question in a frighteningly realistic manner that is totally believable. He gives us a glimpse of characters who have absolutely no conscience or concern for life of any kind. Yet to counterbalance the depravity, he introduces characters who risk everything to help total strangers.
This book is a nail-biter that could keep you awake for hours – both from wanting to see what happens next and the disturbing possibilities it presents. I believe Mr. Liparulo has written a story that is not as far fetched as it might seem. With our rapidly advancing technology and the current generation who have been desensitized by violent video games, TV and movies, we could be looking at a similar scenario before we know it. I applaud his courage in addressing this issue in such a thought provoking manner.

Robert is an award-winning author of over a thousand published articles and short stories. He is currently a contributing editor for New Man magazine. His work has appeared in Reader’s Digest, Travel & Leisure, Modern Bride, Consumers Digest, Chief Executive, and The Arizona Daily Star, among other publications. In addition, he previously worked as a celebrity journalist, interviewing Stephen King, Tom Clancy, Charlton Heston, and others for magazines such as Rocky Road, Preview, and L.A. Weekly.
Robert is an avid scuba diver, swimmer, reader, traveler, and a law enforcement and military enthusiast. He lives in Colorado with his wife and four children.
Robert’s first novel painted a scenario so frighteningly real that six Hollywood producers were bidding on movie rights before the novel was completed. His acclaimed debut novel, Comes A Horseman, is being made into a major motion picture by producer Mace Neufeld and his short story “Kill Zone” was featured in the anthology Thriller, edited by James Patterson.
Bob has sold the film rights to his second book, GERM. And he is writing the screenplay for a yet-to-be-written political thriller, which sold to Phoenix Pictures, for Andrew Davis (The Fugitive, The Guardian) to direct!
He is currently working on his fourth novel.
Deep in the isolated Northwest Territories, four friends are on the trip of a lifetime. Dropped by helicopter into the Canadian wilderness, Hutch, Terry, Phil, and David are looking to escape the events of a tumultuous year for two weeks of hunting, fishing, and camping.
Armed with only a bow and arrow and the basics for survival, they’ve chosen a place far from civilization, a retreat from their turbulent lives. But they quickly discover that another group has targeted the remote region and the secluded hamlet of Fiddler Falls for a more menacing purpose: to field test the ultimate weapon.With more than a week before the helicopter rendezvous and no satellite phone, Hutch, a skilled bow-hunter and outdoor-survivalist must help his friend elude their seemingly inescapable foes, as well as decide whether to run for their lives…or risk everything to help the townspeople who are being held hostage and terrorized. An intense novel of character forged in the midst of struggle, survival, and sacrifice. Deadfall is highly-acclaimed author Robert Liparulo’s latest rivetingly smart thriller.

My husband and I just had a drawing of all the names of the people who left comments in the book giveaway post for A Dropped Stitches Christmas by Janet Tronstad. He pulled Melissa’s name out of the basket so I will have the book on its way to her as soon as I get her snail mail address. Thank you all for entering. I hope to have another giveaway soon.
If Behold the Lamb of God (The True Tall Tale of the Coming of Christ) comes anywhere within driving distance of your home this year, run – don’t walk- to see it. You won’t be sorry. I have only seen the DVD (several times) and listened to the CD so far; but Andrew and his friends will actually be here in west Tennessee this year. My husband and I (and untold numbers of friends) will be there when the door opens.
In my opinion Behold the Lamb of God is the absolute best Christmas album I have ever heard. I was instantly captured with the good news of the opening song and pulled into the story further with each song. With deep spiritual understanding, Andrew has brought us the message of how desperately a savior was needed with glimpses from the Old Testament. He then shines the light on our only answer – Christ. The songs remain faithful to the Scripture and take us from despair to celebration. Each time I listen (or watch) I gain new revelation of the great gift God has given us. I never know which song will bring me to tears. Behold the Lamb of God is the one “Christmas” cd that we listen to year round. Its message cannot be limited to a short season but is relevant at all times.
You can read a wonderful review of Behold the Lamb of God at The Rabbit Room blog.
You can check the tour schedule at Andrew Peterson’s site. You can also listen to (or buy) Behold the Lamb of God or The Far Country (I also recommend) on the Music page of his site. Just click on “Open Player”.
