The explosive new thriller from Oliver North, who stormed bestseller lists nationwide with his disarmingly authentic military novel, Heroes Proved, a gripping, non-stop tale that could only be written by someone who has “been there, done that.” Veteran undercover FBI agent Jake Kruse is investigating a smuggling ring in southern California when his assignment is cut short. A prominent criminal defense attorney wants to hire Jake on another kind of mission: to kill the daughter of a local crime boss.
What began as a “contract killing” soon captures the attention of the CIA, the U.S. Secret Service, and high-level officials in Washington. The undercover agent is plunged into a deadly underworld of North Korean espionage, Hezbollah terror and the sinister deception Iran uses to acquire nuclear weapons. Caught in a web of international intrigue that goes to the top of the U.S. government, Kruse is forced to confront the ultimate moral quandary: doing what’s right when everything seems wrong.
His New York Times bestseller Heroes Proved was praised by Sean Hannity as “a heart-thumping ‘must-read’ for every American” and as “inspiring truth in the form of a novel” by U.S. Army Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin, a founding member of Delta Force.
Copies of Heroes Proved will also be for sale at FoxTale. Oliver North will sign all books purchased at FoxTale Book Shoppe. For additional information, including to purchase the book/ticket, visit www.foxtalebookshoppe.com. FoxTale is located at 105 E Main Street, #138 in Downtown Woodstock.
