Pre-Order The Shadow of War by TSJ!

Pre-Order The Shadow of War by TSJ!

The Shadow of War is now for sale online.  My newest technological thriller is due for release in the Fall, from Fitzhenry & Whiteside.  Read more below …

From the Amazon listing:

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.

I’ve been working on this book now for well over a year.  There was an extensive period of research and prep work before I started writing.  The diagrams and maps, once more created by the magnificent graphic artist, Cheyney Steadman, are the most involved and intricate yet.  The book is a global heist, a magnificent adventure, and the stakes are huge.  I continue to delve into an examination of dark and light — metaphorical and literal in this book — and investigate what people must do to win a war.

Voyage to fantastic settings, facilities, and environments around the world’s oceans.  From the Gulf of Mexico to Great Britain’s underwater city in the English Channel, to the South Pacific and to the Indian Ocean … prepare for the most incredible heist underwater, ever.  This book, as with the others in The Rise of Oceania, is a standalone adventure, a technological thriller, an underwater adventure … and it will leave you gasping.

But most important, and something I’m most excited about, is the addition of a unique and fascinating character, a compelling and charismatic addition to the ensemble team.  Her name is Sahar Noor, and she is my first Muslim woman in a prominent, heroic, and essential role.  Her presence in this book is critically important to the mission, and I know you will love Sahar.

I can’t wait for you to meet her.
