Around the third of September, my wonderful publisher, Black Rose Writing, will release my third book: No Need to Know. Readers of Special Access and Shoot Down will find the same characters in play with the YO-3A quiet airplane flying between scenes, in Africa and Afghanistan and Jordan. Fear not, the political background is still set around a new President that was elevated to the office after the former President resigned in lieu of being charged with being a fraud and a possible al-Qaeda agent.
My novels try to provide a true-to-life peek behind the curtain of top secret programs, forgotten CIA files, spyplanes, and the unspeakable world of Special Access Programs. The pilot, Duncan Hunter, engages the world’s worst, lone-wolf terrorists, and neutralizes international asymmetric threats with a mix of obsolete and cutting-edge technologies. The Players have unusual access with some of the highest security clearances granted by the U.S. government.
No Need to Know: A major security breach finds the CIA’s closest secrets divulged and dozens of their highly-placed spies exposed and killed. As the Agency investigates the source of the disclosures, an old Office of Strategic Services file and the former Director of Central Intelligence become the focal point of their research. A race is on to find the file’s secrets. If al-Qaeda’s wins, they can acquire “suitcase” thermonuclear devices to attack America. If the CIA gets there first, they can make a deal with a Russian billionaire and trade the missing treasure for the weapons al-Qaeda craves.
The political awakening of Duncan Hunter continues as he battles radical fundamentalists across the globe, he thwarts the terrorists’ best plans and eliminates their leaders. He survived their latest attempts to kill him when he’s finally cornered, captured, and dragged to an al-Qaeda lair. Inside lurks certain doom at the hand of his bitterest foe.
More to follow.
