Finalist
 http://bit.ly/2t9BUJD 

War Merchant is selected as a Finalist in the First Lines Contest! Thank you for voting for War Merchant!

The first lines:

 

"L’Oiseau Blanc was a dangerous place to be—especially for a white woman at night. Although a fragile peace currently existed between the Tutsis and Hutus, tension filled the warm evening air like the calm before a thunderstorm. On a night like this every dubious character for miles would be out."

Character interview with Dydre Rowyn, The Protagonist Speaks

 

Dear readers, tonight with me on the interview couch is a woman trying to escape from the black-market arms trade.

Her risky plan went wrong, and she found her – and her son’s – life in danger from her former boss, his mercenaries, a double-crossing businessman, terrorists, the FBI, and a man from the Defense Department.

She is here to tell us about her suspenseful adventures in a world of corrupt politics, a ruthless greedy opportunist, terrorists, and a pawn with deadly skills.

Six Minutes Early by Patrick Parker shows the great risk taken by security operatives in the fight against terrorism. Max Kensworth, a former Delta Force officer, is given the assignment of recovering stolen nuclear weapons (SADM). Representing the Department of Defense (DOD), he works closely with the FBI, Homeland Security and other security agencies, including the Israeli Mossad. These security agencies are bound by their interests in securing the weapons and saving their countries from possible attack by ISIS, Hezbollah or Iran. The whole operation is meant to be a secret one, in order to maintain calm in the U.S. and prevent information about the SADMs from getting to countries like Russia, as these are classified government equipment.

 

Six Minutes Early is full of suspense, action and intrigue. I totally enjoyed the storyline as I could relate it to real issues in the international community such as terrorism and counter-terrorism. I was really fascinated by the operations of the intelligence agencies, their strong ability to think outside the box and maintain a high level of secrecy. I was also amused at the naivety of Dawn Blakey. I loved the choice of words by author Patrick Parker, which gave Six Minutes Early a not too serious tone. Patrick Parker was also able to truly communicate and share his knowledge with readers without the use of vague sentences. He obviously poured himself into his writing which gave Six Minutes Early a touch of uniqueness. I was totally engaged by every chapter right to the end.

 

 

Six Minutes Early is released!

With the help of ISIS, drug cartels, and a US senator, Bart is planning to use the devices to create an atrocity in the American heartland.

Max is briefed on the situation by SOCOM (Special Operations Command) and teams up with FBI agent Gail Summers and Mossad agent Danya Mayer to find the weapons before they can be used against American citizens.

Their foe is intelligent and well connected, but the three of them are determined to stop this terrorist before more lives are lost.

Patrick Parker tackles today’s most important issues in this sociopolitical suspense novel. He uses Six Minutes Early to explore the tension between intelligence agencies, holes in national security, and threats from around the world.

Latest Book Review of War Merchant

 

http://bit.ly/1Sy5cDi

 

Reviewed by Ica Iova for Readers' Favorite

 

Clayborne Zsigmond is a dangerous, ‭‬ruthless black market arms broker.‭ ‬Dydre Rowyn travels around the world, doing ‬business on behalf of Clayborne Zsigmond.‭ ‬Occasionally, ‭‬she uses other aliases, but of course, ‬the people she does‭ ‬business ‬with‭ ‬don‭’‬t‭ ‬care if‭ ‬those are her real‭ ‬names or even if there is a‭ ‬last name to go along with them. Dydre‭ ‬wants‭ ‬out, ‭‬but double crossing Zsigmond could land her in a‭ ‬lot‭ ‬of trouble.‭ ‬It could mean a death sentence for‭ ‬her and‭ ‬her son.‭ ‬Nevertheless, ‭‬when‭ ‬Zsigmond gives her a new‭ ‬assignment to deliver some new technology to terrorists, ‭‬Dydre sees it as a way out and an opportunity to escape Zsigmond‭’‬s unforgiving grip.

 

Her plan goes‭ ‬sideways, ‬and suddenly ‬her life and her son‭’‬s life are in danger.‭ ‬Dydre finds herself having to fight not only against Zsigmond‭ ‬but terrorists, ‭‬the FBI, ‭and even the Defense Department.‭ ‬She uses an arsenal of skills, ‭‬including her good looks, ‬to stay alive and bring her plan to‭ ‬completion, ‭‬but will she‭ ‬succeed‭ ‬or‭ ‬will one of her enemies catch up with her‭ ‬and‭ ‬make her pay for what‭ ‬they‭ ‬think‭ ‬she‭’‬s done‭?

 

War Merchant: A Novel of Suspense by Patrick Parker is a blend of military and historical fiction. From the first page to the last, ‭‬War Merchant is a continuous ‬suspenseful thriller.‭ ‬It kept me‭ ‬on the edge of my seat and biting my nails because I just had to know what happens next.‭ ‬This ‬intriguing ‬story ‬is set in the‭ '90s.‭ ‬With interesting, ‭‬believable ‬characters, ‭‬the story ‬flows well, ‭taking ‬you on ‬a roller-coaster ride.‭ ‬Greed, ‬corrupt ‬politics, ‬and terrorism ‬resonate very well with what goes on around the globe.
