Fiction doesn’t get more real than this.

 

For Immediate Release

 

 

Washington, D.C.  – While most new authors use their debut release to do nothing but simply test the literary waters, Walter Blair quickly proved that a debut novel is also an opportunity to rival a genre’s bestsellers. ‘Presidential Approval’ shot to critical acclaim and may well become a national bestseller, also introducing the world to Jennifer Steele, a heroine bolder and braver than James Bond could ever wish to be.

She is now back in volume two of her trilogy, ‘The Sanction’. Directly paralleling the real world, the new novel comes at a time when international terrorism continues to be rife, and thousands secretly work through their own adversity to keep the nation safe.

Synopsis:

In ‘The Sanction’, Jennifer Steele, a CIA Special Operative, in the second book of this trilogy is as lethal as James Bond, but far more attractive. She is faced with a dilemma regarding her future as a CIA Special Operative juxtaposed with the sadness one would expect considering her family tragedy from which she still mourns. When duty finally calls occasioned by additional threats from terrorists who once again attack New York City, Jennifer and her team, consisting of Omar Washington, David Wilkins, and Juan Ramirez, are deployed into action which might very well claim their lives.

To complicate matters, Jennifer Steele reunites with the one man who could also hold the key to ending her loneliness and suffering. Is he the one?

While the CIA struggles to maintain the upper hand against terrorists who seek to destroy New York City, among other U.S. cities, Jennifer and her team are required to follow every lead, both national and international, to solve the problem and keep the citizens of the Big Apple safe.

In this thriller, the author presents Jennifer Steele in the second novel of the trilogy as a steadfast counterterrorist. The Special Operatives who make up Jennifer’s unit are tested beyond all expectations as time runs out for the residents of Manhattan. They are deployed to prevent a disaster that could exceed the ferocity and death-toll of 9/11.

“My first novel, ‘Presidential Approval’ did better than my wildest dreams could ever have imagined,” admits Blair. “It quickly picked up pace internationally, and truly may become a global bestseller. Jennifer Steele resonated extremely well with readers so I wanted to waste no time in bringing her back into their lives. This story once again mirrors the terrorism threats and activities running rampant in the real world. The final installment ‘Project H₂O’, is two years away. See it as a cocktail of fact and fiction with a grey area that can be extremely hard to recognize.”

Continuing, “I’m presently at my writing desk completing a gripping novel titled ‘West Point’. The story takes readers to Germany where a very attractive colonel, Jane Sherwood, disappears after a night out on the town with five male officers also stationed at the U.S. Military Base in Frankfurt.  Jane is never seen again.  Now back in the U.S. all five of Colonel Sherwood’s fellow officers are murdered one after another. The one thing they all have in common with Jane Sherwood is that they were all once cadets at West Point Military Academy. Stay tuned, because this mystery thriller is coming into your hands sooner than you think!!”

Press Release

headerPresidential Approval: Intense New Political Thriller Gives Vital Insight into Work & Sacrifices of Nation’s Counterterrorist Heroes.

Masterfully crafted by Walter Blair, ‘Presidential Approval’ strikes a chord with readers around the world at a time when post-9/11 society faces bold new threats from the Middle East. The novel’s intricate and gripping narrative tells the story of a woman who rejoins the CIA following the death of her husband and children at the hands of Al-Qaeda. While of course a work of fiction, Blair hopes his release will highlight the brevity and dedication of real-world counterterrorist operatives who often give their own lives in the pursuit of justice.
For Immediate Release

 

Washington, D.C. – With recent air strikes in Iraq putting Islamic terrorism back on the radar of the average American, many are turning to related fiction to gain a deeper insight into the threats society faces and what is being done to fight them. While its pertinent timing wasn’t planned, Walter Blair’s ‘Presidential Approval’ is feeding the curiosity of thousands who demand compelling fiction that twists plenty of real-world fact into the fray.

This fast-paced and thought-provoking new novel pulls no punches when paying homage to those willing to give their all, even their lives, to keep every American truly free.

Synopsis:

In a post-9/11 world, everyone is on edge, especially those who protect the president of the United States. Despite meticulous security measures, a deadly terrorist attack occurs in front of the White House, leaving the nation in shock and seven high-ranking diplomats dead. While Americans demand justice, Terry Steele, a highly decorated special operative, receives his marching orders from the president to leave for Saudi Arabia to eradicate the alleged assassins.

He has no idea that he and his children will soon lose their lives at the hands of Al-Qaeda. But from tragedy arises his wife, Jennifer, who rejoins the CIA and emerges as the most lethal special operative to have ever donned a dress. Fueled by a desire for revenge, Jennifer and her team continue the fight against terrorists determined to release a weapon of mass destruction. In this political thriller, a stunning CIA operative must outthink the enemy and come up with a solution—even though she always seems to be a step behind.

“Thousands fight for our freedoms on a daily basis and ask for nothing in return. In fact, many never make it home,” admits Blair. “Our novel spans the Middle East, North America and Europe as readers get a vital insight into the life and work of those who keep our flag flying proudly.”

Continuing, “Mystery lovers will revel in Jennifer’s escapades as she seeks justice not just for the nation, but for her own family. Her personal plight drives her missions to seek out those responsible for killing those who were nearest and dearest to her. Nobody is immune from terrorism, so everyone will take something away from this story.”

The author already has a sequel in the works.

“The next installment, titled ‘The Sanction’, sees Jennifer and her team deployed to prevent a disaster that could exceed the ferocity and death-toll of 9/11. It’s so vivid that readers will feel like they’re actually there, alongside Jennifer, working with her. I can’t say too much more at this stage – but be prepared for more in 2015!” he adds.

In the meantime ‘Presidential Approval’ is available now in hardcover, softcover, and eBook at: www.Lulu.com; Barnes and Noble; and Apple ibook
