Saturday, July 7th 5:00 p.m. — Joseph Reid  - TAKEOFF

Debut Novel - Orange County Launch Party!

The first book in the Seth Walker series. Still reeling from a devastating personal tragedy, air-marshal-turned-investigator Seth Walker embarks on his first case, accompanying female pop-star Max Magic to Los Angeles and delivering her to the FBI. But when their routine flight ends in a hail of gunfire at LAX, Walker has no choice but to grab the frightened diva and TAKE OFF. But he soon learns that his destination might be the biggest danger of all. 

The son of a Navy helicopter pilot, Joseph Reid’s number of moves kept up with his age throughout most of his childhood. He originally wanted to be a Marine Biologist but after graduating from Notre Dame Law School, he became a patent litigator, and since then he has represented clients ranging from individual inventors to Fortune 50 companies in lawsuits valued in the millions—sometimes billions—of dollars.  His many travels spawned the backdrops for his novels, which he writes each morning before dawn breaks and the real world intrudes.
