Inside

Bulletproof Trilogy, Book 1

Virgil Skinner served fourteen years for a murder he didn’t commit. He’s finally been exonerated, but he can’t escape the gang he joined in order to survive. They’ll do anything to keep him from telling what he knows. And if they can’t get to Virgil they’ll go after his sister and her kids.

The California Department of Corrections needs someone to infiltrate another gang, one that’s taking control of the state’s most notorious supermax. Virgil agrees to do it under an alias—in exchange for his sister’s protection.

Chief Deputy Warden Peyton Adams is opposed to having Virgil in her prison. How will she protect him if things go bad? Besides, she’s far too attracted to him; she might even be falling in love with him. That makes her all the more desperate to keep him safe—and it gives him someone else to lose.

Praise

"Just as the previous book I had read by Brenda Novak, this one leaves me wishing it didn’t end so soon. Once I started it, I couldn’t stop. It’s truly an edge of your seat, page gripping, page turning thriller. And now I’m left anxiously awaiting Novak’s next novel."

"Gritty, violent, and steamy, this tense, well-delineated thriller provides a frightening glimpse of prison gang culture and its wide-reaching influence. With ramped-up action and some wickedly uncommon characters, this white-knuckler satisfies on many levels."

"The nonstop action really got my blood racing... The love scenes are set at a slow boil, but the payoff was worth it. This book is my idea of the perfect vacation read — a fast-paced thriller mixed with a dash of romance. I often found myself saying, just one more page, which would inevitably lead to reading two more chapters."

"This is a tense, gritty drama with well-developed characters. In fact, Virgil Skinner was one of the most interesting and compelling characters I’ve ‘met’ in a long time. Ms. Novak sucked me into the story so completely that I finished it in two sittings, then returned to reread it. Readers will enjoy Novak’s superb pacing and descriptive prose. The story is gripping and educational without being didactic... a very well-written, hard-to-put-down story, which is what I’ve come to expect from Ms. Novak."

"...Brenda Novak’s book Inside compelled me from the very beginning. ...I instantly knew I was reading a great — not good — great book, ... Inside did not disappoint. If all her books are written to this caliber, I can’t wait to get my hands on more."

"An evocative, cutting-edge thriller with a wonderfully romantic twist. If you don’t fall a bit in love with Virgil Skinner from the get-go you aren’t human. Ms. Novak has been a favorite of mine for some time, but this has to be The Book for me out of all her work. It’s the one I will remember for many years to come. It’s the one that stands out not only because of the content, but the depth of the romance. You aren’t going to want to miss this one!"
