K.J. Howe is back with the sequel to The Freedom Broker. From the executive director of ThrillerFest and three-time Daphne du Maurier Award winner comes Skyjack: A Kidnap-And-Ransom Thriller, again starring Thea Paris, an international kidnap expert who faces an old foe and reveals a deadly conspiracy in order to save two young boys on a skyjacked plane.
Howe will be in conversation with Gary Noesner, a retired FBI negotiator. This event will be introduced by A.J. “Tony” Tata (Direct Fire).
International kidnap expert Thea Paris is escorting two former child soldiers on a plane from an orphanage in Kanzi, Africa, to adoptive parents in London when the Boeing Business Jet is hijacked and forced to land on a deserted airstrip in the Libyan desert.
The FBI's chief hostage negotiator recounts harrowing standoffs, including the Waco siege with David Koresh and the Branch Davidians, in a memoir that serves as a basis for the upcoming series Waco.
Packed with high-powered action and stunning authenticity, the novels of Brigadier General A.J. Tata have won widespread acclaim from the bestselling masters of suspense. In Direct Fire, he brings the war on terror to America--with his hero, Jake Mahegan, caught in the crossfire. . . .
There are twenty-five elite kidnap and ransom (K&R) specialists in the world. Only one is a woman: Thea Paris. And she's the best in the business.
