Death Followed Us Home
a thriller
by J-S Rioux

Weeks before a tight-knit unit of combat vets deploys to Eastern Europe as a show of force against Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, an unimaginable tragedy befalls one of the soldiers and his family. Although familiar with death on the battlefield, the cold-blooded killing of one of their own, so far from the battlefields of Afghanistan, is too much for them to take. When one platoon member accidentally discovers the killers’ possible location, the temptation to avenge their brother is too great. Seasoned soldiers that they are, can they pull off the perfect murder? If so, what will be the consequences for each man personally, and for their unit as a whole? This crime thriller explores revenge and its consequences, even if it feels righteous.

Jean-Sébastien (J-S) Rioux enlisted in the Infantry and served in the US Army’s 101st Airborne Division (AASLT) in the 1980s. Following his military career, he became an academic, specializing in international conflict analysis. He taught at McGill University in Montreal, at Vesalius College in Brussels, Belgium, held the Canada Research Chair in International Security at Laval University in Québec City, and most recently was a faculty member at the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy. As a scholarly writer with over twenty academic publications to his credit, he always dreamed of writing novels, and this is the first of what he hopes to be many. J-S lives in Calgary, Alberta, with his wife and their three daughters.
