With al-Qaeda, and now ISIS, still in the news, these stories are very relevant when it comes to today’s headlines. I just hope we have a lot of Parker Glynns out there looking out for us.
Jacksonville, Fla. (PRWEB) August 09, 2017
Businessman-turned-spy Parker Glynn faces off against al-Qaeda as the terror group targets cruise ships and major U.S. seaports in Free Surface Effect – the third Parker Glynn fiction thriller in the series written by Ron Whittington.
In Free Surface Effect, the honeymooning nephew of Glynn’s spy chief goes missing in the Turks and Caicos and a twisted criminal torturer, Diego Delgado, puts a double-agent under wraps – prompting Homeland Security’s H.I.4 Division to call in Parker Glynn to investigate. Glynn soon finds himself in the middle of an al-Qaeda plot to cripple strategic U.S. ports and kill thousands in the process – and as the only person who can stop the plot, and thwart Delgado’s secret personal vendetta against his native country and America.
“I created this character as an everyman who has a personal stake in fighting terrorism, and I’m excited about where Parker’s story is progressing,” Whittington said. “With al-Qaeda, and now ISIS, still in the news, these stories are very relevant when it comes to today’s headlines. I just hope we have a lot of Parker Glynns out there looking out for us.”
Free Surface Effect is available at a presale discount, along with discounted pricing and free shipping on the two popular prequels in the Parker Glynn Series, Second Strike and Doppelgänged, at http://www.ronwhittington.com through September 30. Free Surface Effect is also available at Amazon and on other online book websites.
