    Taking Liberty '- a gripping thriller with a killer twist ...'

    "Every bit up there as Patterson, Child and Connelly" - 5*Star Review of "Killing Hope" by 'I Love New York' - (Burns Country)

    AUTHOR NOTE: The events in this book follow on from those in "KILLING HOPE" and "CROSSING LINES", the first two books in the Gabe Quinn Thrillers series. To get the most out of the ongoing back story, I recommend reading Gabe Quinn #1 and #2 before enjoying "TAKING LIBERTY", so that your reading experience is seamless and as it was intended. Thanks!

    ------------------- Taking Liberty (Gabe Quinn Thriller #3) -------------------

    "When you're going through hell, keep going ..."

    One man is on the hunt ...
    One man intends to take his liberty ...
    Only one will succeed ...

    Imprisoned for the attempted murder of a federal agent, former homicide detective Gabe Quinn is keen to make amends for his mistakes - so when a gruesome murder forces his freedom, he is determined to do everything in his power to bring the killer to justice and prove himself to the FBI.

    But the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and the killer has something else in mind for Gabe Quinn, something that will raze everything he knows to the ground.

    Drawn into a desperate chase against the killer's deadline, Gabe is forced to stand accountable for the decisions of his past and face the ultimate question ...

    'Could you give your life to save someone else?'

    More About the Author

    When I was thirteen, my English teacher told me to write something other than science fiction - since she was fed up with reading my sci-fi short stories whenever she gave the class a creative essay assignment. At the foot of one of these flights of fancy, in bold red ink, she advised me in no uncertain terms to desist for my own good, and that I'd never make it as a science fiction writer. It took me thirty years to heed her advice and switch to another genre. Why didn't I listen to her sooner? Read more about me and my writing at

    5.0 out of 5 stars Gabe is Back! 21 Oct 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This is a wonderful followup to the first two books in the series. Our favorite detective is back and from the very first page the action starts. The book is filled with typical Houghton style- twists and turns and bad guys taking on Gabe Quinn everywhere he turns. Some new characters show up in this book that add a lot to the mix and really flesh out the storyline. If you liked the first two books, you will love this one. It is right on par with the others. You really should read the others before you dive into this one though- there is a lot of backstory you would miss otherwise. A great third book in the series and I can't wait for a fourth!

    This book was brilliant from beginning to end! Lots of twists and turns but GQ takes it all in his stride! Keith Houghton is a very talented author and his Gabe Quinn series is excellent...well worth reading books 1 and 2 first but not essential! I am now waiting for Book 4!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic read! 29 Oct 2013
    By Hope
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Having read both Killing Hope and Crossing Lines, I was eagerly awaiting this next instalment in the Gabe Quin series, and I am very pleased and not at all supprised to say I was not disappointed.
    This is another great page turner, I do reccommend reading the other two books first as this one ties up a lot of the loose ends from the other stories. In this book we get a deeper look at our flawed hero Gabe Quinn and his history, we also find out more about The Undertaker and his history. If you like crime fiction then you'll love this, if you have already enjoyed the first two books this one is an absolute must read, if you have not read any of the books yet, I suggest you start with Killing Hope, that way you will get the full picture, although you could read this as a stand alone story if you really wanted to. I hope Keith Houghton continues the Gabe Quinn series as I am loving these stories.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for GQ4! 24 Oct 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Difficult to put this book down once you start. Another masterpiece from Keith Houghton. Hero Gabe Quinn gives us plenty of action as he takes us on a journey of murder and mystery. Each chapter has it's surprises and heart stopping moments. Left with a brilliant cliff-hanger we are hungry for more and looking forward to seeing where our Hero goes next. Well done Keith. Please don't keep us waiting too long for the next instalment.

    5.0 out of 5 stars High Octane Thriller 2 April 2014
    By somnus
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Wow, another rip roaring fast paced thriller featuring the flawed FBI agent Gabe Quinn. More twists and turns than a corkscrew and running at the pace of a greyhound race! Full of surprises and a great end. I didn't see that coming! I really like the character (Quinn) and hope that there will be a follow up. Has been left ripe for it. If you like a good thriller, without needless dialogue and pages of descriptions then this is for you. I certainly recommend this thriller and would suggest the first 2 Gabe Quinn books be read first to whet your appetite, although this is a stand alone story!
