Cover Reveal for THE SHADOW OF WAR!
Here it is, just below!
I couldn’t be more thrilled with the cover. Fitzhenry & Whiteside acquired the series after Book 2: The Savage Deeps, and they have continued to publish the series and allow me creative freedom to tell stories during the escalating Second Cold War, amidst the surface chaos and havoc of Global Warming and catastrophic climate change. This book is an incredible heist to steal the most unique weapon ever invented for underwater warfare.
Also, I can’t wait for you to meet Sahar Noor.
The book’s release is imminent.
The Jacket Copy:
AN INCREDIBLE HEIST!
In the world’s undersea realms, the superpowers are pressing. Climate change is ravaging the surface nations, and their militaries are surging into the oceans to seek out new resources to sustain their exploding populations. Now Truman McClusky, mayor of the underwater city, Trieste, must gather a team of operatives and travel the world to steal the most unique and deadly weapon ever invented for use underwater. War is looming, and to win a war, one must do whatever it takes, even if it means embracing your darker side.
