Not just a thriller but an exposé of the rogue US government agents and their practices, this action-packed narrative is more than just a story. This is an advocacy to stop the inhumane treatment of enemies and spies.

After Hurricane Sandy left not just destructed homes but also severed bodies as casualties, author John F. Nolan was inspired to set his latest thriller in the backdrop of a town that became a victim to the ruthless storm. “The Twelfth Protocol” (published by Xlibris) examines the kind of interrogation techniques modern US military uses to make perpetrators admit to their crimes.

Hurricane Sandy exposed several mutilated corpses of three men, a pregnant woman, two boys and a skeleton. At first blush, homicide suspected the grisly work of drug dealers. That was dispelled by exposing US government agents who had been given Carte Blanche to practice a smorgasbord of tortures on suspected terrorists.

When Detective Lieutenant Patricia A. McAvoy (Patti Mac) and her tight knit team of Homicide Squad South detective delves into the case, they found out what treatment of suspects Colonel William Hannon and his crew of mercenaries do to make them admit to their crimes. Eleven protocols, a smorgasbord of enhanced interrogation techniques (EITs), authorized by the US Department of Justice ran the gamut from sleep deprivation, prolonged diapering, cramped confinement, cold cells and water boarding.

Shocked by the inhumane treatment of their captives and suspects, Patti will do anything to make it right for the law and the humans involved. As a Homicide Squad Commander, Nolan has good grasp of the subject; an understanding and knowledge he flawlessly transitioned into his writing.

Not just a thriller but an exposé of the rogue US government agents and their practices, this action-packed narrative is more than just a story. This is an advocacy to stop the inhumane treatment of enemies and spies.
