If you liked ARGO, the Oscar-winning best picture of the year, you'll like Jay Hawk: The Assassin's Lover. Tony Mendez, ehe real-life character played by Ben Affleck, tutored the author at CIA HQ to refine this extensively researched story of agonizing personal choices, individual responsibility and unintended consequences. New to the big city, fresh off the Kansas farm, and fleeing an abusive marriage, Britt Jaeger lands a dream job and becomes the protege of Mackenzie Collingwood, a brilliant, elegant, and fabulously rich international financier, who grooms her for success t only in business but also the secret world where Wall Street intersects with the shared intelligence network that links Western Allies with the Mossad. When Iranian agents set a complicated trap to crack the West's most sensitive and vital intelligence system, Britt is kidnapped and held for her strategic information and the stage is set for an action packed, international thriller with a newly empowered female protagonist who rises to the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE situation and works feverishly to thwart the Iranian plot as it quickly unfolds in New York, London, Athens, Tehran and Tel Aviv. Framed against real world geopolitical threats-Jay Hawk is a story as current as tomorrow's headlines. Praise for the eBook edition of Jay Hawk: The Assassin's Lover excerpted from reviews on Amazon and Smashwords: ***** This one hooks you early. A page turner. ***** .. .Everything that a suspense/mystery fan likes in a story. Action, adventure and a little romance thrown in for good measure. This was definitely a page turner...as I was reading I kept telling myself I needed to get some sleep. ***** Haven't read a book I couldn't put down in a while. Not only the intrigue of espionage and compelling romance but so well researched it feels like something you might read in the NYT or WSJ. ***** Action thrillers like this are t my first choice as a genre, but I couldn't put this book down. The four strong women were fabulous but flawed, nuanced and complex. ***** It was hard for me to believe that a male author was able to portray women with such an authentic voice. This vel is going to be my Christmas gift to quite a few friends. Don't miss it! ***** You will be fascinated with these women as you learn their stories and interactions with each other. BJ was especially likeable as a woman who didn't realize how strong she really was until faced with adversity. ***** A page turner from the start, The Assassin's Lover challenges the reader's kwledge of politics, history, geography, and culture while taking her a journey of wonder and excitement.
A veteran journalist with CBS News and CBS Sports, Sean Eagan won three network Emmys as a producer and director. The late Tony Hillerman was his writing teacher and launched his career at the Associated Press. Sean wrote and produced shows and features for Dan Rather, Bill Kurtis, John Madden and Sue Herrera. He is a member of the Directors Guild of America and the Association of Former Intelligence Officers. Sean insists he was never a paid agent of the United States, or any other country, but his passport stamps show him appearing in the strangest places at the strangest times. He was one of the first American journalists into embargoed Cuba. Other travels found him in Poland as martial law was declared to end the Solidarity reformation; in Egypt ten days before Anwar Sadat's assassination; then on the Thai-Burma border on the eve of the 8888 Democracy Uprising and Aung San Suu Kyi's rise to prominence. He splits his time between the Connecticut shoreline and the shores of Lake Tahoe.
