I grew up in a typical southern Ontario city when it was considered normal for a kid to
roam anywhere anytime without fear or concern for their safety. It was unusual to lock the
doors of our homes in those times even though there were horrible wars across the oceans.
Our town was situated on a beautiful river draining a network of lakes famous for their
sparkling waters and fighting fish. There was time to enjoy life, read books, listen to
the radio and be kids unlike what seems to be the way kids live today and that became
prologue to a career in industry, construction, manufacturing and management as an
electrical engineer. I could not stay in one organization or job much past the time I knew
how to do it well and then became anxious to move on. It was difficult for my wife and
family during that period but our kids acquired a dose of the itchy foot and soon flew far
from the nest.
My career took me overseas many times particularly while serving on an international
working group writing product and process standards and part of our national committee. So
many changes have occurred during my decades in this world that there is no time to just
watch them happen but it is necessary to grab the ring and go with it. Lately, I’ve had
time to focus on a youthful passion to write imaginative stories of life as I have seen it
or have imagined it might happen. Writing provides an opportunity to live other lives in
the exploits of my characters. What might my experience have been if I’d taken a different
turn at any number of times in the past?
My wife has been a constant support and now puts up with long periods away from her on the
keyboard. All authors must have someone in the background to keep the clean and fed. Thank
On a warm Friday in May when a band of Islamic killers hijack the US Coast Guard ship Hammerhead to secretly land in America and begin ten days of terror in towns and cities throughout the nation. Unprepared for such industrial scale killing frightened people take to the streets threatening civil breakdown. The emergency spirals out of control as Washington races to eradicate the Jihadists.
FBI Agent Jeffrey Close and CIA Operative Pat Holmes, attached to Homeland Security, are in the hunt as almost by luck one of the killers is caught alive becoming their first lead. Jeffery joins field agents capturing another cell preparing to hit their target. Meanwhile, Pat Holmes, searching government databases, discovers that hundreds of Islamic State fighters have been smuggled into America as suicide bombers.
Close and Holmes urgently fly to Guantanamo Cuba where captured jihadists are kept secure and encouraged to talk. They learn the names of sleepers and their carefully hidden command structure. The new information identifies more terrorists and eventually their commanders even as they order bombers to kill more Americans. They are in time to stop a major attack on a state capital intended to slaughter elected Senators and Representatives.
The discovery that the terrorist attacks were planned and coordinated by supposed friendly powers in the Middle East is devastating. The President and the National Security Council must restore peace and order in the homeland and determine a political and military response to the foreign powers. Their decision will affect the world.
