Last month I completed my forth book tentatively titled – Requiem For The Dead. Currently its pending publications and editing. I’ve attached a synopsis. Please let me know what you think of it.
I’m thrilled to announce that on July 15, 2019, I’ve signed a publication contract with Black Rose Writing, with a release date of 12 March, 2020.
Requiem For The Dead is a contemporary mystery/crime thriller novel about revenge for the tragic death of an American held captive in a North Korean jail, and the failure of the US government to secure his release.
Brigadier General Thomas R. Scott, a rogue ex-US Army officer once assigned to the US European Command (USEUCOM) is fed up by the futile attempts of the government to get his son, a CIA operative, released from North Korean custody. When his son is killed at the hands of the brutal Communist regime, he seeks revenge. He and a few fiercely loyal former members of his staff kidnap four dependent children of four highly placed Generals in USEUCOM based in Stuttgart, Germany who have operational control of the army’s first strike plan. The lives of the children hang in the balance unless General Scott can bypass presidential approval to implement the Operational Plan—which once activated cannot be stopped—that calls for the nuclear bombing of Pyongyang, the North Korean Capital.
US Army CID Special Agent Jacqueline (Belle) Sinclair and Special Agent for the Defense Intelligence Agency Tom Price are part of the efforts to stop the bombing in time, rescue the children and capture General Scott. They are impeded by highly trained Special Forces mercenaries sent by General Scott to stop them. Sinclair and Price face several lethal confrontations including their attempted assassination.
In their investigation the duo uncovers evidence that the President of the United States would be under the crosshairs during a forthcoming summit meeting with the leader of North Korea in Pyongyang.
Will they succeed in stopping the lethal first strike which could lead to all out war? Can they safeguard the President at the summit meeting? Moreover, can they find the kidnapped children before anything else happens to them, and capture General Scott before he can seek further
