Spencer Stephens' second book is available in paperback and Kindle formats.
Blood Lily is a literary thriller about a modern Saudi woman – a royal – whose violent, billionaire father embeds her in America with orders to lead two brothers on a suicidal bombing mission on the Washington, DC, subway. She is desperate to escape his influence and dreams of fleeing to Maine. The story is about the impacts of oppression and fear as much as it is a takedown of the autocrats and tyrants who would like to rule us all. Kirkus Reviews calls it “engrossing.” BookLife.com says it is a “propulsive” thriller, unique because its characters are so richly developed.
