Share Article

New book follows a rescue mission to find a kidnapped woman.

Sam wakes up to the sound of heavy pounding, not knowing where she is—not even who she is. By the looks of her surroundings, she deems herself trapped inside a furnished tower with hi-tech gadgets and beautiful furniture. Why is she there? Suspense and mystery unfold in author Shirley McLain’s novel, The Tower.

Samantha is the twin sister and right hand of Allan Jansen, the head of the International Diagnostic Environmental Agency (IDEA). Its main headquarters located in Tulsa, IDEA is a private company that investigates international activities that can affect quality of life of the world’s citizens. After three days of not hearing from his sister, Allan is terribly disturbed, bypassing work-related assignments in his attempt to find her.

Meanwhile, still held captive, Sam tries to recollect her memories, which have seemed to escape her since she arrived at the mysterious tower. She meets her kidnapper, the charming and wealthy Mr. Anthony Pickford, and tries to pick up the missing pieces of her kidnapping. She later finds out that Mr. Pickford, whom she had the pleasure of meeting before, wants classified information from her regarding her brother’s international activities. However, Sam cannot remember anything; and even if she did, has no plans of giving it away. To what end will this puzzling mystery face?

Action and adventure follow Allan and his mates as they embark on a mission to find and retrieve his sister, while dodging dangers and environmental perils confronting them. For more information on The Tower, interested parties may log on to
