Concurrent to the discounting announcement, Cook reveals another novel nearing completion, Patriot and Assassin, that extends the Cooch storyline.
Cooch has emerged as one of the most unusual killers, with a bent towards both Wall Street and special ops warfare in this national security thriller. Offered from Royal Wulff Publishing and Robert Cook Novels [http://www.robertcooknovels.com , the novel features protagonist Alec Cuchulain.
Cook develops Alec Cuchulain both as a hedge fund manager and a CIA-sponsored special-ops warrior. Cooch moves from a Marine at 16, to a noted CIA warrior at age 25 and finally as a hedge fund manager, with stops at Oxford and Morocco. The drug cartel has decided to trade cocaine for defense secrets; Cooch and company are sent to crimp their plans. His allies include a Rhodes Scholar former Seal, a former Marine sniper and a foul-mouthed, scary smart, female CEO of a software company.
The protagonist is a violent killer with a unique set of learned qualities. His father is a wheelchair-bound former Marine and Medal of Honor winner who gives his son advice as to how to survive in a violent world. His mother is the daughter of a Bedouin sheikh who sends her young son off during many of his summer breaks to experience and learn the Bedouin life. The combination of a very young start in learning the art and craft of violence, combined with a thirst for knowledge drives him to become both a noted designer and user of explosives and an expert in Islamic affairs.
Violent, yet thoughtful, Cooch represents the best in fast-moving, popular thrillers. The novel has won a National Gold Medal from eLit in the mystery/suspense/thriller category, an honor which cited author Robert Cook for “illuminating digital publishing excellence.”
