The big question? Was Phillip Sheppard ( really a “Former Federal Agent?” One thing is certain. He is the inspiration and persona in The Specialist: The Costa Rica Job novel. Sheppard’s character The Specialist heads to Costa Rica on a perilous rescue mission to extract a corrupt banker from the hands of ruthless kidnappers. Swept up in a life or death mission, The Specialist teams up with a small cadre of Israeli secret service agents, and navigates a risky path of betrayal pitting him against drug cartels, dirty cops, turncoat agents and a terrorist bomber. In this fascinating thriller, one man faces past demons to solve a case fraught with chilling international implications.

Sheppard’s first foray into popular fiction presents him in a way never before seen by fans of the CBS reality show, that of a hardboiled, fist swinging former federal agent determined to complete his mission. Written in an engaging first person style, The Specialist: The Costa Rica Job deftly incorporates all elements of traditional action thrillers, along with Sheppard’s own unique blend of dialogue, intrigue and quick pacing. The project is a creative collaboration between Sheppard and his younger brother, Charles Peterson Sheppard. The book will be the first in a series of The Specialist action adventures.

Phillip Sheppard is a retired U.S. Army Specialist, a former federal agent, and actor. He currently resides in Southern California with his son and his fearless dog, Spike.
