Picciano’s “Liam’s Promise” is a gripping and potent endeavor of heart and soul forged in life and branded upon the pages of his new book. With skill and style, words flow across paper and wondrously through the mind.

As to what inspired the book, author John F. Picciano said that he wanted “To use the controversy of the Flight 800 explosion over Long Island as the historical backdrop to a troubled father-son relationship.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, John F. Picciano’s poignant tale shares the turbulent times of a man who carried the heaviest burden but was never crushed by it.

This is a story of a son, estranged from his enigmatic father after years of mutual sparring. Liam Mayfair loses all hope of reconciliation with his father when J.W. Mayfair, naval war hero and renowned trial attorney, is killed aboard Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island on July 17, 1996. When Liam accidentally discovers a recording that reveals the true cause of the crash, he is suddenly catapulted out of self-pitying complacency and deep depression into the firestorm of an international terrorist conspiracy and massive government cover-up.

Liam Mayfair, barely turned 23 years old, is faced with the moral dilemma of a lifetime as he reluctantly teams up with a retired FBI agent to foil a plot to destroy him, his family, and the truth. This is a compelling story about the risks and rewards involved in his search for that elusive truth. Liam's Promise is a tale of one man’s decision to follow his conscience despite the devastating costs which threaten his family and country.

"In this debut page-turning thriller, based on a real-life 1996 plane crash, a young man must uphold his family's honor while also facing ethical challenges posed by terrorists and the U.S. government ... Debut author Picciano delivers a meticulously crafted thriller packed with details that re-create the Flight 800 tragedy all too well: 'The sea was covered with floating corpses...and the bizarre coating of gold glitter which had been blown out of boxes and now covered the hair and clothing and faces of the dead.' However, the story’s main strength is the author’s finely tuned characterization."
–Kirkus Reviews
