When an American expatriate woman escapes her captors in Caracas, Venezuela, she is shocked by newfound knowledge of a horrifying, murderous political agenda run by powerful players. Tough and defiant, she scribbles a message on a piece of paper and orders a nearby gang to somehow get it to a journalist far and away in Miami. It may just save lives. Eventually, the note does find its way to that young writer, Street Brewer, a thirty-year-old reporter working for The Gateway, a South Florida media startup. Following a lead on a breaking story, Street heads to Venezuela and finds himself taking on a life-or-death job whose success will determine not just the fate of his own life, but the fate of Venezuela and the entire Western Hemisphere as well.
Description
"The Placebo Agenda" is an action-packed thriller filled with secrets, mystery and unexpected heroism. When an American expatriate woman escapes her captors in Caracas, Venezuela, she is shocked by newfound knowledge of a horrifying, murderous political agenda run by powerful players. Tough, defiant and determined to do what she can, she scribbles a message on a piece of paper and orders a nearby gang to somehow get it to a journalist far and away in Miami. It may just save lives. Meet that writer, Street Brewer, a thirty-year-old reporter working for The Gateway, a Miami media startup. Following a lead on a breaking story, he heads to Venezuela to write what he thinks at first is a routine news item. But it doesn't take long until he finds himself taking on a life-or-death job whose success will determine not only his own fate, but the fate of Venezuela and the entire Western Hemisphere as well. On the day he arrives in Caracas, strange things begin to happen. An out-of-place foreigner follows him around town. Police officers take interest in him as well, though something seems off. And before he departs, a mysterious woman is tracking his every move and urges him to run for his life, warning that dangerous forces are onto him. In this exciting novel that won't let up with its twists and turns until the very last words on the very last page, Street must drum up his inner strength and face his weaknesses to battle the forces behind a homicidal scheme that he aims to expose, and his enemies go up the power structure from Caracas to Washington to Moscow and even beyond. Failure could bring death to those close to him and threaten the safety of the Americas. But his foes underestimate Street, who has secrets buried in the Florida Everglades that can wreck their lethal Placebo Agenda.
