Author Biography

Adrienne has aspired to writing novels since her days with Nancy Drew. She grew up in central Texas during the sixties and made journalism a business minor at UNT, going on to pen corporate PR and training pieces in healthcare and banking careers. The yen to craft story never left, however, and ten years ago she began to study fiction at night through SMU, knowing someday she’d tackle her dream.
Dallas is home, shared with a husband who keeps her laughing, and two highly amusing rescued mutts. At the center of life are regular visits from the children, especially her grandson, and while she’s always writing or reading, she’ll jet away on adventure at the drop of a hat.

There is no better place to be than a remote Texas ranch with thousands of acres if you’re looking to disappear. For Gabriel Haines, in No One Can Know by Adrienne LaCava, his friend’s ranch is not only the best place to be when the heat is on for a CIA operative, but a welcome change from company life, which hardly resembles the exciting action of James Bond, but holds all of the very realistic danger. Though Haines would rather retire and spend his time riding all 50,000 acres of the ranch on his mare Bella, he is caught up in the action of Cold War politics when the President comes to Dallas. Having been mere yards from President John F. Kennedy when he was assassinated, Haines feels like he was a little too close to being involved in the threat. With the combination of a motherless preteen worrier, a teen cousin that is always in trouble and a high-society aunt and her uncle’s mistress mixed into the equation, Haines isn’t certain if the marksmen who tracked him to the ranch or Ivy Jean Pritchard and her family are worse. He does know one thing: secrets, even those that are supposed to benefit the entire nation, are never good for a democratic society or the families involved.

Adrienne LaCava has written a thriller that has all of the promise of a John Wayne western mixed with a James Bond spy thriller in No One Can Know. Set in the 1960s Cold War and tracking alongside JFK’s assassination makes it not only an interesting read, but the mixture of genres is a good one and creates not only a thrilling story, but an excellent commentary on the damage that state secrets have on families and on people as well. Suspenseful, action packed and fresh, No One Can Know is an excellent addition to your library and a thrilling read which will keep you on the edge of your seat.
