David L. Simmons’s new novel “GIP: A Fishbowl Novel Based on an FBI Program” (published by Archway Publishing) shares the story of a Capitol Hill janitor’s experiences after he inadvertently overhears a confidential conversation between two congressional aides.

When Sam Yoke unwittingly overhears two congressional aides discussing that it is Tennessee’s turn, he tells his buddy, Stick, a Howard University basketball star and promising NBA prospect just before they head to a club for a night of fun. After Yoke meets Kaseya, a beautiful woman who has just been fired from her job at the Department of Commerce, he is captivated by her. But his life becomes complicated when his supervisor shows up at his door the next day and tells him he has been identified as the man who overheard a confidential conversation in the restroom. Even worse yet, the FBI wants to talk to him. As Yoke learns that a country that spies on its citizens isn’t a safe haven, all hell breaks loose when he discovers that no one escapes the Capitol Hill fishbowl.

“I want the reader to realize what happens when they spy on their neighbor,” Simmons says. “The book is about countries that spy on their citizen doesn’t end well for the citizens. G.I.P. (Ghetto Informant Program) did just that.”
