SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Author Ruth Anderson drew heavily from real life experience in creating her debut novel, Whistle Blower and Double Agents, a shocking spy thriller penned by a writer who worked intimately for the U.S. Government during a crisis long forgotten.
Centered on what Anderson calls "a cover-up of epic proportions," Whistle Blower and Double Agents is an explosive international thriller inspired by actual events. But what makes Whistle Blower and Double Agents positively combustible is the story behind the story: Anderson didn't have to look far for a plot: she was working for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in the 1970s when 200 pounds of uranium was declared missing or unaccountable at a U.S. nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania.
Resplendent with intrigue, action, romance, and drama, Whistle Blower and Double Agents teems with authenticity. When asked why she wrote the novel, Anderson stated: "The novel is inspired by actual incidents around the 200 pounds of uranium missing, or unaccountable, from a US nuclear power plant. The question of responsibility pointed in many directions–the man who operated the nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania, the CIA, and even the President. I'm often asked why I believe there was a cover-up. I interviewed the whistleblower at my house and was haunted by the stories for years. You see, the 'whistleblower' found out exactly what happened to the uranium, who was involved—and who received the 'missing' uranium. Ultimately, I felt that this was a story that needed to be told."
Born and raised in Washington, D.C.'s Georgetown, Ruth J. Anderson served with several Congressional and cabinet-level officials for over 25 years, including the Federal Communication Commission; Senator Richard Russell, Senate Commerce Committee, Secretary of Commerce, and Postmaster General. Upon the recommendations of Sen. Henry Jackson and Judge Roy Morgan, Ruth joined the Atomic Energy Commission and then U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, as Editorial Assistant and Research Specialist. Ruth served as President of the Federally Employed, Inc., SMC, which represented over 750,000 Federal employees. She was selected for the World Who's Who of Women in Cambridge, England and in 1977, was honored to be the first woman to receive the Silver Medal for Meritorious Service at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. A past member of the New York Academy of Sciences and the Society of Women Engineers, Ruth also served on the Federal Women's Interagency Board. She lives in Florida.
Written under Anderson's pen name, R.J. Anderson, Whistle Blower and Double Agents is published by The Peppertree Press in hard cover, trade paper and eBook editions. http://whistleblowerspy.com/
