About bryancassiday

Bryan Cassiday writes thrillers and horror fiction. He wrote "Zombie Apocalypse: The Chad Halverson Series" and the Ethan Carr thriller series, which includes "Force of Impact," singled out by BestThrillers.com as "a potent shot of contemporary LA noir that will have readers hooked from page one."

Ghislaine Maxwell Spotted in LA

Ghislaine Maxwell was spotted at an In ‘n’ Out Burger in LA reading The Book of Honor:  The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Officers, a nonfiction book about the CIA by Ted Gup. Now if you try to buy the paperback on Amazon, it’s out of stock because the book is flying up the charts. Isn’t it amazing how one little photograph in the paper can affect sales of a book? Could Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein have had anything to do with the CIA? In any case, she’s probably here in LA to cut a movie deal in Hollywood about her life story.

Another Great Blurb for Bryan Cassiday’s Thriller Bolt

Bryan Cassiday’s newest thriller Bolt just received another great blurb, this one from award-winning author Brendan DuBois, who wrote the New York Times best seller The Cornwalls Are Gone with James Patterson.

“From the very start, Bryan Cassiday spins what appears to be a typical Southern Californian private investigation novel in Bolt, but quickly takes off in a direction that speaks to our current troubled times.  Well-plotted and crisply written, with great characterization, this is one to look for.”–New York Times best-selling and award-winning author Brendan DuBois

Epstein’s suicide explained

Here’s the Keystone Kops explanation of disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide at MCC.

1. Epstein was taken off suicide watch, even though he had previously attempted to hang himself. Blunder number one.
2. Epstein was supposed to have two guards inspect his cell every half hour to make sure he was OK. Neither of them did their job. Blunder number two.
3. Epstein was supposed to have a cellmate after he was taken off suicide watch. The cellmate was mysteriously transferred out of Epstein’s cell just before Epstein hanged himself. Blunder number three.
In other words, a perfect storm of bonehead actions by the MCC prison personnel led to Epstein’s suicide.
Are we supposed to believe the entire staff at MCC are blithering idiots who have no idea how to do their jobs?  Are we supposed to ignore the fact that a raft of rich and powerful people had much to gain by Jeffrey’s Epstein’s death?  Without a trial he won’t be ratting anybody out.  His mouth is permanently sealed.  And it’s all because of a bunch of idiots.

Jeffrey Epstein’s “Suicide”

Isn’t it fortunate for the rich and powerful guests on Jeffry Epstein’s Lolita Express headed for Pedo Island that Epstein has shuffled off this mortal coil–by his own hand no less? No need for them to worry now about inconvenient truths being let out of the bag during what was shaping up to be a nasty and well-publicized trial. A lot of movers and shakers will be breathing easier these days.
