Clinical Social Worker Completes Third Psychological Thriller Eagle: Birds of Flight

in Press Releases

Years after the Department of Defense Foreign Intelligence Agency is finally disassembled and agents scattered, Alexander J. Burns waits for the inevitable battle with his nemesis, Eric I. Daniels.

PRESS RELEASE: August 2, 2013 – Andover, MA – While living in plain view in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, former counter-terrorist specialist Alexander J. Burns patiently waits for his old boss to make his move. His plan is simple: bait Eric Daniels, and when he shows himself, the hunter will become the hunted. As Diane Welch continues her investigation of the Foreign Intelligence Agency, Jillian Davis and her new team, Thomas “Nine” Williams and Daniel “Ice” Maddox, carefully watch one last link to elusive Chairman Daniels. But while Burns and his supporters at the FBI watch and wait, Daniels puts into motion a plan that strikes at the heart of Burns’s life: his family. As a series of perfectly timed, devastating events unfold like clockwork, Burns and the FBI recognize the signature style of the Eagle. With former FIA operatives Alica Wise and Jeffery Glenn in the mix to “capture or kill Burns,” anything that can go wrong, does. As the FBI scramble to extend their protection to Denise Cratty and her team in Torrox Costa, Spain, they form an unlikely alliance with Boston’s crime boss John Murphy to find yet more enemies allied with Daniels.

Eagle: Birds of Flight, Book Three picks up where the critically acclaimed and Readers’ Favorite Finalist Raven leaves off – following Burns’ harrowing trek across a dangerous political landscape, a journey that changes him and all whose lives he touches. Similar to Albatross and Raven, Eagle is garnering praise in literary circles:
