Creating compelling characters in action packed premises, he was always willing to experiment, whilst never forgetting to entertain his audience. This would make for some extremely engaging drama, pushing the format, and keeping the reader constantly guessing at every page turn.

The Remo Cobb series would be an excellent example of this, perfectly showcasing McCrary’s talents as an action thriller author.
