Published by AuthorHouseBooks
Tom Lasino, army veteran and college physics professor, has his mundane life turned upside down when he is contacted by a CIA agent. Tom is recruited to become part of a top-secret mission. He receives a briefing aboard a yacht anchored off Maryland's Tilghman Island. At the briefing Tom discovers that the CIA agent is Jennifer Blake, a long ago friend with whom he had lost all contact. The CIA, Tom learns, has uncovered a terrorist nuclear plot that will be unleashed somewhere in the United States, and Kurt Hansen, a former nuclear artillery soldier turned criminal soon to be released from Leavenworth, is behind the plot. Tom, after much weapons and martial arts training in addition to intense intelligence briefings, is inserted into Leavenworth prison as a prisoner. He is to befriend Hansen, learn what he can about Hansen's plot, and connect with him again when they are released from prison in a month. In prison Tom learns how much hatred Hansen has for the United States and it's government. Upon their release Tom continues to play the role, but also begins to develop an intense relationship with Jennifer. Tom and the entire team of six use their collective wits to discover the location and details of Hansen's plot, but their discoveries come at a high cost for all the key players. The many twists and turns in Eagles Don't Die keep you guessing to the very end.
This fictional story, which brings the reader face to face with the reality of terror and homeland security, is based on an incident that actually occurred in 1971 involving a nuclear military device. Today's world events make this a very timely tale.
Eagles Don't Die won First Prize in the Action-Adventure Category of the 2006 Maryland Writers' Association International Novel Contest.
