Patriot & Assassin is the second of the Gold Medal-winning thriller Cooch series from Robert Cook Novels that features protagonist Alex ‘Cooch’ Cuchulain. who 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.
Cook develops Alex Cuchulain both as a Muslim executive who uses both his knowledge of Islam and his Irish-American heritage to begin to bring a better life to the masses of the Middle East, using the lessons of the Enlightenment. Earlier in his life, Cooch was a CIA-sponsored special-ops warrior. Al-Qaeda terrorists now plan to attack in the USA, with plans to kill tens of thousands of Americans in a single, cruel blow. Cooch and his team 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 physicist who has developed the world’s most sophisticated intelligence system.
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 sent 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, an effective executive based in Tangier and an expert in Islamic affairs.
Violent, yet thoughtful, Cooch represents the best in fast-moving, popular thrillers.
