TAMPA, Fla. - Oct. 27, 2022 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that FORTUNE'S FAVOR, a thriller by Thomas Locke and Jyoti Guptara, will be published on November 7, 2022 in trade paperback and ebook formats.


It's what you don't know that kills you.

Shara Desai left India to escape a dark past. Unfortunately, it has followed her to Florida in the form of murderous brother-in-law Vihan, who will stop at nothing to destroy her family and control a source of power they are unwilling to use.

Her one hope lies in the man she once rejected.

Disgraced analyst Crystal Dumont gets her break when an Indian billionaire hires her to scrutinise a competitor's shady operations. The investigation shatters her logical world and leads her to unravel a mystery that has kept Asia's elites in power for centuries. Now, Vihan plans to use the same illicit power to build a criminal empire in the States.

To stop him, unlikely allies will have to escape hitmen, outwit an intelligence agency, and outrun time itself. The key to accomplishing all this is Jeremy Spade, a consummate adventurer who has every reason not to trust the system.

Brimming with action, intrigue and romance, Fortune's Favor is the first joint effort by internationally bestselling, inter-cultural, inter-generational author duo Thomas Locke and Jyoti Guptara.

A must-read book that will take you away." —Vincent Zandri, New York Times and USA Today bestselling Thriller and Shamus Award-winning author of The Dick Moonlight PI Series and The Remains
