KENILWORTH, NJ- Bob Laurie, who moved to Kenilworth in 1996 after marrying his wife Jean Harris has written an action-packed inspirational thriller. Four years in the making A Deadly Miracle is set to hit all major book outlets on September 30, 2020.

The synopsis is:

Sage knows how to get what she wants from Jace. A package needs to be delivered to a clandestine destination three hours away, and there's twenty-five hundred dollars awaiting the young couple when the deal is done.  Against his better judgment, and because Sage asked, Jace agrees.

All’s good on the trip home to collect payment, until they’re intercepted by an elite Russian operative named Bull. Jace doesn’t know that the delivered parcel was stolen by Sage’s uncle from the Russian intelligence agency, GRU.  Also concealed from Jace is Bull's mission to return the top-secret property and exterminate everyone involved.

Jace will need all his strength and nerve as he drives Bull to the drop-off location, realizing that soon after they arrive, Bull must kill him. However, unbeknownst to Jace or Bull, their lives are about to change forever.

‘I wanted to write an inspirational thriller even though it's not a real genre, I'm hoping it will be one day” Laurie said. “My idea is not only to give people page-turning suspense but to leave them with an inspirational message.” Laurie is distributing A Deadly Miracle through two venues.  Ingram Spark, “so that the book will be available through all major distributors in the world, including, Barnes and Noble, Apple, Kobo and Google Play,” and independently on Amazon. A Deadly Miracle is also available in e-book format at all book retailers, including Kindle and Nook.  The e-book will be on sale for pre-order at $1.99 until September 30, 2020.  The book in print will sell for $12.99.

Laurie started writing five years ago when he found himself with an abundance of time on his hands.  “I fell in love with writing and have been writing short stories and poems in addition to writing my novels ever since.  I have a full-time job as a construction manager and have committed myself to write every night for an hour or two. I am hoping that I can write full-time after I retire in a couple of years.  This is more than a hobby it's a passion.”
