Launch Party for Upstate SC Comedienne and Author Carolyn Lee Adams



Greenville, SC, June 11, 2015 - Upstate South Carolina comedienne and author Carolyn Lee Adams will be celebrating the launch of her debut young adult thriller, Ruthless (Simon Pulse, hardcover, $17.99, on sale 7/14/15), at her launch party at Thomas Creek Brewery (2054 Piedmont Highway, Greenville, SC 29605) on Saturday, July 18th, from 6-8pm. This event is free and open to the public.



Fiction Addiction owner Jill Hendrix and her mystery-loving mom, Nancy, have both read Ruthless and recommend it highly to both teen and adult thriller fans. They call Ruthless "a harrowing survival thriller set in the Blue Ridge Mountains about a teenage equestrienne kidnapped by a serial killer who must dig down deep to find the will to first survive then triumph. You won't be able to put this one down!"  


Ruth Carver has always competed like her life depends on it. Ambitious. Tough. Maybe even mean. It's no wonder people call her Ruthless.


When she wakes up with a concussion in the bed of a moving pickup truck, she realizes she has been entered into a contest she can't afford to lose.


At a remote, rotting cabin deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Ruth's blindfold comes off and she comes face-to-face with her captor. A man who believes his mission is to punish bad girls like Ruth. A man who has done this six times before.


The other girls were never heard from again, but Ruth won't go down easy. She escapes into the wilderness, but her hunter is close at her heels. That's when the real battle begins. That's when Ruth must decide just how far she'll go in order to survive.


Back home, they called her Ruthless. They had no idea just how right they were.
