“A bracing tale with a gutsy hero for fans of secret agent thrillers…She’s got intuition, grit, and gumption…Old-school fun.” —Kirkus Reviews
Meet Kori Briggs…
…astute, fearless member of an elite and super-secret American intelligence team. A self-described “femme badass,” Kori is a highly trained agent, an expert in self-defense, a dedicated Scotch drinker, and a drop-dead beauty whose closest friend is her Glock nine-millimeter Luger.
In this action-packed Kori Briggs debut novel, Kori is on the trail of a madman who has managed to steal a hundred pounds of uranium and, with the help of an equally twisted Russian scientist, is intent on detonating a nuclear bomb somewhere in the world. But when and where?
Come along with Kori on this vicarious thrill ride as she follows clues from Washington, DC to New York City, Russia, Israel, and finally, Paris, the “City of Lights.”
There is action, there is romance, there is adventure. And behind it all, there is the incomparable spirit of Kori Briggs.
"Fans of spy actioners will revel in this swift-moving adventure and its delightful heroine... a refreshingly modern feminine take on James Bond." -BookLife
"A bracing tale with a gutsy hero for fans of secret agent thrillers...Rawls' thriller begins with 'unsettling news' and rarely flags. Kori Briggs is a capable hero who is not unnecessarily complicated by a formulaic, psyche-scarred backstory... She's got intuition, grit, and gumption; the confidence invested in her is justified. The book is well paced...old-school fun." -Kirkus Reviews
"Finally, a female James Bond! Actually, better than Bond. Welcome, Kori Briggs!" -Teresa Cortez, author of The Eyes That Have Cried

Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me! I look forward to more from this author and series!
The Dark Tetrad was definitely enjoyable to read. This book had such amazing suspense, action, intrigue, and murder unlike any book I’ve read before. Kori was such a fun character to follow, she’s definitely is a favorite of mine. This was my first A.P Rawls book, and will definitely not be my last! 100% recommend.
Fast paced thriller with a strong female lead. I highly enjoyed the main character, Kori Briggs, and how she was confident and didn't hold back. I'll definitely be looking forward to the next book in the series.
Excellent spy caper with a female protagonist that can hold her own with the many others that are out there to entertain readers of the genre. As a member of a super secret club reporting only to the president, our heroine possesses all the skills necessary to save the world from an illicit nuclear weapon.
Fast paced and full of action, this is a great book to take on holiday and suspend reality for a while. I found the lead character hard to like and that detracted a bit for me, but the story is amazing!
The Dark Tetrad was just full of action from the beginning to the end! I mean really a female James Bond, what's not to love! You’ll travel around the world with a “femme badass” and see her kick some butt, while tracking the bad guy, and get a touch of romance! Oh you guys are going to LOVE Kori she is a great main character! Happy reading everyone! Thank you Love Books Tours and A.P Rawls for my gifted ebook and for my place on the tour!
