Thomas Williamson is a retired architect who lives with his wife, Barbara, in the small, comfortable community of Tremont, Illinois. He has completed his new book “The Second Book of Why: You Need to Know”: a riveting autobiography detailing the author’s contract work for the Central Intelligence Agency and other seminal events in his unique life story.

Thomas writes, “You are invited—indeed, welcomed—to rummage through the author’s memories—those of a one-time contractor for the CIA, to delve into the darkest recesses of his mind, to learn about betrayal, murders, and assassinations, and to learn how it was actually done. All this you will know while learning why there are unbelievably close relationships between sex and betrayal, secrets and spies, vengeance and revenge, and even family and sacrifice—and why secrets and lies affect everyone’s closest relationships.”

Published by Page Publishing, Thomas Williamson’s engrossing book is a spellbinding memoir of Cold War-era CIA contract work, the pride of a patriotic family, and many significant themes in an eventful life.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “The Second Book of Why: You Need to Know” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
