Steven Gore already had a pretty good career going for himself when he sidestepped into the world of mystery novelist.

Let me quote from Gore?s own description of his life pre-novelist as a globetrotting private eye:

?It was a career that took me, among so many other places, to a smuggling port on the North China Sea, to a gambling den in Bangkok, to a prison in Lugansk, to an underground bank in Hong Kong, and into courtrooms in a dozen countries. It also put me in meetings with drug syndicates in the Golden Triangle, corrupt police officers in Mexico, sex traffickers in India, snakeheads in Taipei and San Francisco, and fraudsters from Ahmadabad to Zurich.?

Sounds pretty cool to an armchair adventure-seeker like me. But at some point, Gore decided to slow down and let his mind do all the work.

From his active imagination came San Francisco-based P.I. Graham Gage and the debut thriller, Final Target.

Although it weighs in at nearly 500 pages in paperback, it?s a surprisingly fast read full of corporate, legal and political intrigue.

Hear it now!STEVEN GORE AUDIO EXCERPT: "I had pretty much done everything there is to do in the investigative world. I got to the office one day for an early conference call with people in inconvenient time zones and I said to myself, 'Maybe I should write a novel.'  And once you start, you can't stop."
