About Bonnie Ramthun

Bonnie Ramthun’s first book, Ground Zero, published by G.P. Putnam, has sold over 90,000 copies and has been translated into Japanese and Italian. (In Italy Ground Zero sells as “The Enigma of the Eighth Player,” a name the author adores.) Her second Eileen Reed mystery, Earthquake Games, was a finalist for Colorado Book of the Year and hailed by the Washington Post for its “unrelenting suspense.”

Bonnie followed her Eileen Reed series with the middle grade Torin Sinclair mysteries beginning with The White Gates, published by Random House. The White Gates was a Junior Library Guild premiere selection and a finalist for the Missouri Truman award. Roscoe, the sequel, has been praised as a “page turner and heart warmer all in one.”

Bonnie is a former chapter president of Mystery Writers of America and served as the published author liaison for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers. She lives in Erie, Colorado with her husband Bill, their children, two cats and a very energetic German Shorthair Pointer named Watson.

Review by: Roxanne Tomich on Nov. 28, 2011 :
After re-reading this recently, I have decided to post a review. I read it as a stand alone book, and it si my favorite. Read this first, then you might like the rest. Sometimes a third book can drop the ball, but not this one. Ramthun writes a story that takes us on a non-stop adventure from the first page to the last. Her minor characters are so fun that I forget that it is a story. This book has a rock and roll star who is a hunter and a gun-toting independant, but yet we see how he feels so passionate about a sport that needs a voice. Yet the main characters, some of whom we know from Ramthun's prior books, continue to delight, entertain and have us hanging on the edge of our seats. I really like Ted, Lucy's husband and his role in the book. It is not a long book, but contains so much adventure I wonder how she does it.
I recommend this to all adventure readers, conspiracy readers,besides readers who like a little mystery, romance, science fiction, angel believers, and anyone just wanting a fun read.
