The Book Trailer




When American computer executive Peter Barrett’s multi-million-dollar business deal backfires, his life is turned upside down as he becomes the most hunted man in the United States. He is accused of embezzling money from his father-in-law’s firm to be used by terrorists intending to fire missiles at South Florida and major cities on the East Coast. With the help of an old friend, he manages to outsmart the FBI, the CIA, the local police in California and Florida, and the entire government of Fidel Castro as he tries to smuggle himself into and then out of Cuba . . . but not without a lot of close calls. From an upper-class businessman to a wanted criminal and eventually to a modern-day hero the American public is rooting for, Peter must risk everything to prove his innocence and get his life back.

I read this book in a short time and found it very interesting and fun reading. It’s not the kind of book that you think a lot about while reading it, it just keeps going until it ends, like a movie. The characters were very well developed so that they acted in character all the time, and the writing technique was very easy to follow and the dialogue always clear.I liked this book and will recommend it to my friends, and already have.
