Quantum Assault - A Keeno Crime Thriller

In QUANTUM ASSAULT, the 2nd in the Keeno Crime Thriller Novels, Keeno McCole and his team of Canadian crime fighters take on a sex trafficking ring which is injecting young girls with an experimental nano-virus, one designed to change their anatomy, and then selling them off to clients throughout Canada and the United States. When one fourteen year-old girl escapes their net, Keeno and his team declare war against the traffickers, and when the nano-virus breaks-out and threatens a global pandemic, the stakes become fatal as the chase takes them around the world. A crime thriller to the end.

Book review of INTRUSION – A Keeno Crime Thriller, by Linda Marie Marsh, Goodreads Top 1% Reviewer


“I’ve read other of LaPlaines books and have adored each one for different reasons. He has this way of taking on the persona of his characters, particularly the main one, and writing with the voice of his creation!
This is first of the Keeno series i read and sure do wish he was mine. yes. MINE. Or at least a good friend? ‘Living on borrowed time’ describes him well as he puts his life on the line for what he finds right and wrong, and uppermost- his friends. He is a member of the Canadian Mounted police and his specialty is anti-terrorism. The clock is always ticking for him and his partner Jake.
Calling this book a page-turner does not do it justice. The author takes what WE would all think is impossible and makes it not only possible….but probable.” LMM

Keeno Crime Thrillers – a unique crime thriller novel series

What does Keeno McCole have in common with crime fighters such as James Bond, Dirk Pitt (Clive Cussler), Jack Reacher (Lee Child), Alex Cross (James Patterson) or the classics such as Dirty Harry, The Punisher, etc?

The answer – NOTHING!

Keeno McCole is different. He takes on only the big players in the criminal arena – tackling high-concept crime scenarios which are outside the box. Keeno is an indigenous Canadian Indian, from the First Nation of Canada, mixed with a touch of Irish and French lineage. He heads up the ATU (Anti-Terrorism-Unit) of the RCMP (the Royal Canadian Mounted Police) – along with his small team. He refuses to wear a uniform, just cowboy boots, jeans and denim shirts. He’s lethal with most any weapon but his choice of combat is his four inch throwing knife which, by the age of seven, he could throw with deadly accuracy. McCole isn’t a womanizer, and he isn’t dysfunctional in his intimate life – he loves only one woman and she is his anchor in a world of violence and crime which he faces every day. Keeno bleeds, he takes his share of bullets and he constantly walks a fine line between life and death. His passion to fight the criminal element was ignited when he was just four years of age and a man attacked his mother, strangling the life out of her. Keeno picked up a pair of scissors and stabbed the man – and on that day he put his feet on the road and became the criminal’s worst nightmare.

Follow this new Canadian crime fighter, unlike any you have known, in the Keeno Crime Thriller Novels.

The Keeno Crime Thriller Novels – putting the “Fu.. You!” back into crime fighting

Every country has its crime fighters. America has a plethora of CSI crime fighters. Britain has Bond. Sweden has Hamilton – the list goes on.

And now, Canada has Keeno McCole,

McCole doesn’t take on small fry like serial killers, robbers or even wanna-be terrorists. He and his hand-picked team take on the big players, those who plot against the nation and even the world, technology ventures which can disrupt the balance of life on our planet and threaten our freedom – the real crazies hiding behind suits and ties, like greedy international banking cartels, corporate conglomerates who devastate the planet at the expense of human life and more; and in every case, from deadly virus attacks to high-tech sex trafficking spreading a potent nanovirus, Keeno McCole and his team are forced to race across the globe, always on the clock, in search of their perps before it is too late.

dirty-harry-300x230 john-mcclane-die-hardKenno McCole restores the “fuck you” attitude of Clint Eastwood in the Dirty Hairy series, and even Bruce Willis in the John McClane “Die Hard” series.

McCole is not a smooth womanizer – but mess with a woman and you are bound to lose a few teeth in the process.

This new Canadian crime fighter is on a mission and if you’re a criminal who crosses path with Keeno McCole, get ready for an early grave because McCole doesn’t give second chances.

The Keeno Crime Thriller Novels

Keeno photo

This is a new series of crime thriller novels based on a character named Keeno McCole – a man who does not bow to any other man.

I started this series before finding my penchant in the sci fi thriller genre, but nonetheless, the Keeno Crime Thrillers stand on their own and I will be continuing the series.

The character, Keeno McCole, is a Canadian who heads up the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) anti-terrorist unit, and with his unique team they take on the heavy players in the arena, and go up against cutting edge criminal scenarios. These books are not about serial killers or bank heists or the like, they are about large, global-based conspiracies involving technologically advanced mediums and weaponry. Although the stories are based in Canada, Keeno and his team are routinely forced to take the chase out into the world due to the global nature of the conspiracies.

What makes Keeno McCole different from other crime fighters? He’s unique. He’s part indigenous indian, part French, part Irish and a whole hell of alot of “fuck you“. Unlike other crime fighters, his personal love life is not dysfunctional – he has one woman whom he loves more than any, but as to his past, Keeno lived anything but a normal childhood.

As the reader discovers in the first book, at the age of four, Keeno is forced to face his worst nightmare, and from that day forward he sets himself on a path to become the criminal’s worst nightmare.
