Author Terrence Douglas Debuts with International Terrorism and Espionage
A tale of Middle Eastern intrigue unfolds as this up-and-coming author releases his first novel
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- An international terrorist plot unfolds as three competing forces collide. Readers are immersed in a deeply powerful plot that invites them to view the action from three different perspectives, influenced by the loyalties, commitment, and resources of each. This debut novel of intrigue, international terrorism, and covert missions, by author Terrence Douglas, depicts strong characters that introduce Ganymede.
"The murder of German agents working with CIA exposes a terrorist plot aimed at American soil in the Douglas' debut novel . . .The omniscient narrative, which give readers more insight than characters, works best . . . An exemplary story that takes readers on a stroll around the world, made all the better by taut dialogue and expressive characters." Kirkus Reviews.
This story tracks the dangerous and equally challenging adventures of protagonists who lead the action: Colin —the CIA operative assigned to Germany who rushes off to make a covert meeting in Athens with his agent Hans—codename Ganymede; Colin's Spanish agent Jamie—codename Icarus— a bona-fide terrorist who seeks asylum in the U.S. in return for his cooperation; Ben Yousef, a senior Libyan terrorist sponsor, masquerading as an oil expert; and Frost, a CIA officer, assigned to Athens, who is haunted by his failed ambitions.
What makes readers so absorbed in these pages is the dramatic portrayal how each of the characters respond to the challenges faced, leaving the reader to speculate on how they will react to the next event unfolding.
