INTRUSION – A Keeno Crime Thriller “Calling this book a page-turner does not do it justice.”

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

INTRUSION – A KEENO CRIME THRILLER – “adult readers who enjoy nail-biting suspense”



“… I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Keeno is a very special agent who does what needs to be done…as he sees it. He often goes “off grid” and gets himself in incredibly difficult circumstances, causing great anxiety for his colleagues. While the difficulties are huge, the author manages to make the story totally believable. Even the technology in the story becomes believable, and the drive for power and control is well-written.” N.S.


INTRUSION – Four star reviews of this crime thriller


Four star reviews of INTRUSION – A Keeno Crime Thriller Novel


“A realistic and exciting story about the war on terrorism. Suspense at it’s best. Grateful for this goodreads win.”- Julia (Goodreads reader)

“I loved this Canadian James Bond-style story. A bit predictable but a fun read nonetheless.” – Shari (Goodreads reader)

“If you are a fan of action-packed thrillers, then I highly recommend this book for you. Keeno and his team at the RCMP are the front line of defense to all threats within Canada. But you are missing out if you’re not checking this amazing series out, right now.” – Kristine (The Writer’s Inkwell)

“Keeno reminded me of some of the larger than life heroes I like in books by Cussler, Frank Miller, Michael Connelly, and some manga and graphic novels. I thought it was interesting how the author took simple concepts like viruses and RFID chips and took them in totally different directions I wouldn’t have thought of. Put your feet up, use your imagination, relax and enjoy. I’ll be waiting for book #2.” – Laura (Goodreads reader)

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.
