The book is a hi-tech adventure novel with a very fast pace. Simultaneous story lines occur in the mountains of Kenya, the Amazon rain forest, the Olympic National Park, Victoria, Canada and Washington, D.C.

The story involves Osprey V-TOL craft, the U.S. Marines, AWACS, Karelian bear dogs, a cougar attack, Sikorsky Skycranes, FLIR and night thermal vision systems, a clan of Gigantopithecines... you know, the works.

For the FBI operative, I tried to think of several names, but only one was a perfect fit.

This agent is a solid citizen, fearless, compassionate, sharp as a tack...

He's going to take down a serial killer who is a former National Geographic photographer -- that uses poison blow darts to kill his victims. The killer is the first person to ever get an authentic high resolution close-up of a Gigantopithecus (sasquatch).

Special Agent Shaw's action will take place primarily in Washington, D.C., but he may end up in the Olympic National Park in Washington state as well.

Being one of the protagonists in the story, the Agent Shaw character may play an indirect role in saving a group of four hikers from Canada in the Olympic Park (they are a special group of deaf girl scouts that are held hostage by the serial killer).

Over time, Shaw may move from the FBI to working for EIDER (Environmental Intelligence Department of Emergency Response) for the state of Washington. EIDER is a super-secret, highly funded Washington State agency run by former Navy Seals.

When finished, the book will be a hardback of about 1,000 pages. 85% done and closing in on the finish line.

Stay tuned...
Check into publishing it in eformat (kindle/nook/iBooks) there's lots of people who don't buy physical books anymore...

I'm giving that a lot of thought. Was looking into that this morning. I

I may dial the faith based stuff back, though I hate to. It's just hard to get anything published in the mainstream that even remotely mentions faith. On the other hand, the Christian publishers want everything squeaky clean and watered down, and they would probably freak over the Gigantopithecus (sasquatch) in my novel because of the concerns about creation vs. Darwinism.

Connor will probably become "Agent Shaw" without identifying his first name.

As far as adding sex, I will be adding a romance but it won't be R rated.

The actual book may be more manageable in that there are major segments that are about the key characters and those can be spun off as separate books.

I really appreciate everyone's comments, by the way.

I know how this book ends.

FBI Special Agent Connor Shaw's personnel information is compromised and the villain breaks into Shaw's place.

The villain manages to spring a trap for Shaw and goes into a long exposition before he snuffs Connor.

But this is all a trick by Shaw to be a last piece of critical information to save the day.

We know the tables have turned when the villain laughs and expects to see a dejected and hopeless, broken man but instead sees Shaw give him a wink and this line, "I'm sorry but there was one flaw in your grand plan: I NEVER LOSE AT HOME."

He then proceeds to kick the shit out of the villain and save the day.


Boom goes the dynamite.

There is some swearing in it, but not too much. The novel is written from a Christian perspective without being "preachy". I intend for this to market through the mainstream and not just Christian publishers.

The characters pray a lot, the way Christians do when they are in trouble or when they give thanks. I don't take it over the top, but I portray what goes on in Christian homes when families and individuals have their backs against the wall.

Also, there is a particular scene where angelic intervention takes place. Again, I tried to be consistent with what the Bible says, so the angels don't have wings and they seem remarkably similar to humans.

Anyway, their intervention occurs during a Christmas festival in Montreal and nearly one hundred ice skaters fall into the freezing water. The angels are there to protect the children.

What happens during that episode may take your breath away (at least, I hope so)

That's sounds a lot like what Tyler Perry decided to do and he is loaded
