Announcing The Patriot Threat

July 9, 2014

PatriotThreat-cvr-thumbOn March 31, 2015, Cotton Malone returns for his 10th adventure in The Patriot Threat.  When his former-boss, Stephanie Nelle, asks him to track a rogue North Korean who may have acquired some top secret Treasury Department files—the kind that could bring the United States to its knees—Malone is vaulted into a harrowing twenty-four-hour chase that begins on the water in Venice and ends in the remote highlands of Croatia.  With appearances by Franklin Roosevelt, Andrew Mellon, a curious painting that still hangs in the National Gallery of Art, and some eye-opening revelations from the $1 bill, The Patriot Threat is 90% historical fact and 10% exciting speculation, a trademark mix of history and suspense.

My friend Wayne Valero is working on a top secret Magellan Billet project (more to come on that later). A graphic artist friend of his, Paul Michael Kane, came up with this badge. Pretty cool, huh? You can imagine Cotton toting one around. My compliments to Paul.
