Longboat Key, FL (PRWEB) February 9, 2011
Oceanview Publishing announces the upcoming release of The Valley of Shadows by Mark Terry. The Valley of Shadows (ISBN: 978‐1‐933515‐94‐6, Thriller, 304 pages, Hardcover, $25.95) will be available wherever fine books are sold on June 7, 2011.
A pulse-racing thriller set against the backdrop of a ticking clock, The Valley of Shadows is a timely, tense, and terrifying tale.
A raid on a Pakistan Al-Qaeda cell recovers two laptops. When the computers' booby-traps are defused and the computers decrypted and translated, they indicate that Al-Qaeda has planned a series of simultaneous attacks in five U.S. cities involving potential dirty bombs, biological weapons and maybe even a nuclear device--on Election Day.
Derek Stillwater, troubleshooter for the Department of Homeland Security, is assigned to a multi-jurisdictional Special Terrorism Activity Response Team (START) to locate the weapon and terrorists in Los Angeles and prevent the attack. They have two days.
But as the team closes in on their targets, Derek begins to think that the intelligence they gathered is a sideshow to distract them from the real target--one of the two candidates for President of the United States.
According to Douglas Preston, New York Times best-selling author of Impact, "The latest Derek Stillwater novel, The Valley of Shadows, is a first-rate thriller, well-crafted and relentless, that launches like a rocket and never slows down. Mark Terry is at the top of his form, a slam-bang storyteller, and this novel about L.A. under attack from jihadists is not to be missed."
Mark Terry is the author of the Derek Stillwater thriller series, which includes The Devil's Pitchfork, The Serpent's Kiss, The Fallen, and The Valley of Shadows, as well as several standalone novels. He is a contributing essayist in Thrillers: 100 Must-Reads. Mark lives in southeast Michigan and when not writing, he practices guitar, lifts weights, bikes, runs, and studies Sanchin-Ryu karate, in which he holds the level of black belt.
