New Zealand Author Voted No. 3 In Top Ten Ebooks

New Zealand Author Voted No. 3 In Top Ten Ebooks Killerbyte by New Zealand author,Cat Connor, has been voted Number 3 in the Best eBooks of 2010, released and collated by eBookNewser.

In May this year, Cat ranked Number 2 on Mobipocket with Killerbyte, nudging thriller writer Lee Childs further down the ratings.

A talent to be reckoned with, Cat Connor is the author of Terrorbyte, also published by Rebel ePublishers, which is receiving great attention in the book world.

Cat’s third novel in the series, Exacerbyte, will be released in February 2011. Killerbyte, Terrorbyte and Exacerbyte are (and will be) available as ebooks and print on demand paperbacks.

A killer with a gift for inventive and macabre deaths. An FBI Agent with an equally unusual imagination and sense of humour. Supervising Special Agent Conway is confronted with outlandish connections – chlorine, bourbon, gold ribbons and missing children – in the race to find the link between a series of murders, the Pentagon, the Military, Eastern European terrorists and a book of poetry. Praise for Killerbyte and Terrorbyte ‘I love these books; they are the perfect literary answer to NCIS, Bones, Criminal Minds and so on.’ - Un:Bound.

‘Don’t start Killerbyte late at night, you will need to finish it once you start, no way you can sleep without knowing who dunnit.’ - Un:Bound ‘Connor does a phenomenal job of creating characters who have real human reactions to unreal situations. … intelligent, fiercely independent and resourceful FBI Agent who weathers the emotional rollercoaster with wit, focus and a macabre sense of humour. The reader is drawn into … through Connor’s perfect balance of descriptive details and action sequences. Her ability to write in detail about police and FBI procedure and the DC area only enhances the realism and suspense that builds throughout the story.’ - Some Random Mother ‘In Terrorbyte, Connor's second novel in the series, Agent Conway is back: wisecracking, kicking ass and using psycho-prophetic talents to grapple with a murderer with ulterior motives, secreted behind a series of grotesque crimes. The tension created by the suspense is so heavy as to be almost tangible, the action is both exciting and gruesome, and the mystery is extremely well-executed. … Terrorbyte drew me in immediately and kept me intrigued and fully involved throughout the entire novel. It made me think, alternately amuse
d and saddened me, and impressed me with its intelligent and well-crafted narrative.’ - The Book Wenches About the Author Cat Connor lives in Wellington, New Zealand with her husband and seven children. She has had stories published in ThrillerUK, Mystericale, Bewildering Stories, T-Zero, The Writers’ Post Journal and Conceit Magazine. She has several more novels in the pipeline.
