Overview

On the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 comes a defining story of a lone soldier's experience in the war against terror. Fitzgerald’s breakthrough thriller is a heart-racing tale from the ashes of 9/11. It is a story about the fate of America’s war against terror resting in the hands of a reluctant, middle-aged, former Special Forces soldier recruited as a phantom assassin, an elite CIA woman spy operative overseeing the mission and how secrecy at the highest echelons of government is a double-edged sword of power and shadows.

Can one man change the course of history? One man whose mission is so secretive only the President, Vice President and Secretary of Defense know his name? Even his children believe he perished in the Twin Towers. As the countdown begins to the assassination of Osama Bin Laden, no one can stop this man or can they? 

Description

September 11, 2001.  A top-secret covert intelligence op, in the planning for years by the U.S. government, is activated at the moment that the Twin Towers collapse on 9/11. A former Special Forces soldier is plucked from the ashes and recruited to give up his very existence to become a phantom assassin to kill the mastermind behind the terrorist attacks on America.

Operation Hawk’s Nest tells the story of a reluctant, middle-aged, former Special Forces soldier and an elite CIA woman spy operative as they team up together to hunt and kill Osama Bin Laden. It begins in New York and moves back and forth to mysterious capitals of culture and vast deserts and mountains across the globe. Their pasts collide with the future, bringing mystery and romance to a mission with impossible odds.

Yet what happens to them is also the tale of how secrecy at the highest levels of government is a double-edged sword, illustrating how power and political ideology alter the landscape of the modern world. Can one man change the course of history? One man’s mission, which is so secretive, that only the President, Vice President and Secretary of Defense know of the plan. Even his children presume his death in the Twin Towers on 9/11. As the days count down to execution of the mission, no one can stop this man or can they? 

Fast paced and compelling, Fitzgerald’s debut fictional novel is a creative thriller to the end.
