Weapons, gear and vehicles are important elements of my novels. Just like in real life, what blade and gun someone carries for defense (or offense), what they drive, the watch they wear, the boots and holster they use, all tell a story about that person. In my books I use that gear to develop my characters.
Some people are very vocal about not liking all the detailed descriptions of gear and weaponry in my novels. If this is you, DO NOT pick up or listen to my new thriller, THE DEVIL’S HAND, which hits shelves tomorrow, April 13! If you would rather that characters just pick up a “gun” a “pistol” a “rifle” or “shotgun” or if you want to “hear an audible click as a character flips off the safety on their Glock” or if you are waiting for someone to “insert a magazine into their revolver” then this is NOT the book for you. You have been warned.
Do you have a favorite piece of kit from the list?
What story does your gear tell about you?
