(PRWEB) May 23, 2013 -- After serving in the Army for 32 years, all 50-year-old Army Chief Warrant Officer Four Artemus Newton wants is a quiet retirement. Newton, the star of this new novel, spent most of his career sitting behind desks around the world. He and his cat, Gus, now call a Chicago suburb home, and he’s still recovering from getting shot in the shoulder during an eventful vacation in Germany. Soon he’s in a new fight, however, and this enemy might be unstoppable.

“Arena: A Novel” is the second in a series of suspense thrillers starring Artemus Newton and his friends such as the beautiful CIA agent Alexis Lee who was with him during his last adventure. A secret council of highly ranked men and women from around the world gather to discuss their plans for worldwide domination – bringing the world under a single government free from religion of any kind, relying only on human reason and wisdom. One of Alexis’ CIA rivals is part of the council and sets a plan in motion, including a mission designed to kill top Army officials and the detonation of a nuclear bomb. An unexpected accident exposes the plot, but it also leads to a desperate situation for Artemus and Alexis, who must use all their wits if they hope to survive.
