Okay, so it’s been awhile since I posted and I’ve had various things published since I last posted, but the big one is that my third novel came out, a spy thriller called Net Impact. Here’s the cover and a blurb about it:
Dick Thornby is not Hollywood’s idea of a spy.
In his rough and tumble
job there are no tailored Italian suits, no bimbos eager to please, and no
massive underground fortresses built by evil overlords seeking world
domination—just an endless series of sinister threats to the safety and security
of the billions of mundane citizens of the planet. Sure, Dick’s tough and he
knows a few tricks to help him get out of a tight spot, even if his boss accuses
him of over-reliance on an abundance of explosives. But he’s also got a
mortgage, a wife upset by his frequent absences on “business” trips, and an
increasingly alienated teen-age son who spends way too much time playing in
gaming worlds on the computer.
When a mission to bust up an arms exchange
in New Zealand goes spectacularly bad, ending with the showy destruction of the
Dunedin port facility, Dick is thrown into a maze of conflict involving Hong
Kong arms dealers, cyber-criminals, Chinese government goons attempting to
suppress computer access by dissidents, and even militant Maoris seeking rocket
launchers to shoot down tourist-laden jumbo jets. Then a young computer expert
back at the Philadelphia headquarters for The Subsidiary, an international
espionage agency created in the aftermath of 9/11, discovers that the bad guys
are involved in a vast conspiracy. Dick is forced to partner with the espionage
neophyte to battle evil on multiple fronts, leading to a final confrontation
that incorporates real-world conspiracy theories and cutting-edge
In the end, Dick can save his partner, save his marriage,
save his son, or save the world, but he can’t do it all.
Net Impact is available as a soft cover trade paperback and as an eBook on Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and iBooks. Tell your friends!
