From Los Angeles, to Canada, to New Zealand, and eventually, Macau, a special administrative region of China, Cyclone is rife with international intrigue and suspense. The protagonist, Paul Francesco, orchestrates a master plan that he hopes will reunite him with the love of his life - his son Alex Along the way he finds himself swamped in red tape and drenched in frustration. Filled with a plethora of powerful characters and puzzling predicaments and dead ends, the story moves quickly . . . Cyclone will leave you informed and satisfied . . . you will be reluctant to put down."
Best-selling author Peter Thomas Senese inspirational legal thriller is one that perhaps few other writers could have written with such intimacy, familiarity, and depth of understanding: it is a story of a father doing everything possible to find and reunite with his internationally abducted child that is Peter Thomas Senese'sCHASING THE CYCLONE which is heavily inspired by the writer's own experience chasing into the cyclones of international child abduction.

Peter Thomas Senese commented, "Chasing The Cyclone is story many readers are connecting with. Unquestionably, it is a legal thriller with many twists and subplots that move the reader into a complex storyline that would have been extremely difficult to replicate if it were not for my own experiences of having a child taken to the other side of the world. In many ways, Chasing The Cyclone can be viewed as a seed of the activism and awareness campaign that I have been actively involved with these past few years. Regardless if you consider the educational documentary film I created titled 'Chasing Parents', or the various legislative initiatives I am involved with, or the building of the I CARE Foundation's pro bono attorney network, or weighing in on the many children and parents I have assisted, it all starts with Chasing The Cyclone. Presently, the novel is available exclusively in E-book format via Amazon. And 100% of my author royalties have been donated to the I CARE Foundation in order to assist others."
