Release Day for Extinction Event by John Day

John Day's latest book is being released today.

Extinction Event is the beginning of Max and Carla's grand adventures.

Rescued on a mountain road in Italy by Max Fortune, Carla Day involves him in her life of excitement and danger. He becomes hooked on the wealth and glamour surrounding her guardian, known as the Duke, who controls a shadowy business empire. The manipulative Duke uses the steadying influence of Max to tame and protect the wayward girl.

He employs Max & Carla on simple missions, as couriers and trouble-shooters for the business. The pair are trouble magnets and adrenalin junkies who face unexpected danger when things invariably turn nasty.

A crashed aircraft, ancient artifact, and mercenaries in the African jungle, a tomb, and nuclear waste in Egypt, treasure from a shipwreck and a hijacked submarine are but a taste of what they encounter.

Along the way, Max has to face heartbreak and Carla’s past comes back to haunt her.

Will life ever give them a break?

Cancelling the alarm and returning frustrated into the real world, he quietly carried out his ablutions and then made breakfast. He knew Carla was not asleep, but she did not attempt to speak until he called her to the table, and then she only mumbled a thank you. Eating quickly, she got up and dressed whilst Max cleared the table.

Carla had still not come up with a plan and did not want to answer awkward questions, so she avoided any eye contact with Max that might start him off.

Somewhat miffed at her unfriendly attitude, Max started the van and headed for town. As they
approached, Max said unnecessarily, that they had arrived and asked where she wanted to be dropped off. Part of him wanted to see the back of her because she was impolite and moody, but deep down he did not want to lose her. Aware of his conflicting
feelings, he became annoyed with himself. “Pull yourself together,” he thought. “One sniff of pussy and you lose it,
ditch the bitch!”

Carla suddenly pointed. “See that street, by the red car? Just drop me there.” She turned to pick up her bag and brief case, just as Max braked hard, throwing her off her feet.

“Christ! Carla - they’re getting out with guns!”
