 A Terrorist Threat Unveiled

Bestselling author D.L. Wilson’s newest thriller delivers a gripping tale of bioterrorism by a secret organization vowing to destroy the U.S.

 

 

(CONCORD, MASSACHUSETTS) – Is the covert menace of bioterrorism destined to infiltrate the U.S.?

 

Sirocco, a secret organization within the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, threatens to unleash a bioweapon at the heart of the United States unless Congress funds a new Palestinian government and convinces Israel to cede strategic occupied land.

           

Brett Reynolds, an attorney representing the pharmaceutical lobby, is summoned to Washington for an urgent meeting by Homeland Security to investigate the threat.

           

With a bio-terror looming that could devastate the U.S., Brett learns of his brother’s death in a bizarre murder/suicide. He discovers connections between his brother and Sirocco’s terrorist plot. His investigation leads him on a harrowing chase that ends in a deadly confrontation with Sirocco and a chilling climax in the Oval Office.

What they're saying about Sirocco:“SIROCCO is a masterful blend of dark and light, and all the grays in between. The setting, dialogue, and details cast an ideal backdrop for the tension and intensity of this action-packed tale. D.L. Wilson is a wry, appealing voice in the thriller world. This one is well worth a look.”

~ Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Emperor's Tomb

 

SIROCCO is both a razor-edged thriller and a tour de force drawing lines from the Middle East to the very heart of American politics and security. Bioterrorism, extremism, and national gamesmanship turns this taut story into a true potboiler of suspense.”

 The Truth Behind the Tragedy

The sensational murder of Gregg Smart became a media circus,

and now his brother reveals the personal angle to the story

 

 

(BARRINGTON, NEW HAMPSHIRE) – It was a shocking crime that stunned the country: the school aide who had an affair with a teenage student and then urged him to kill her husband.

 

On May 1, 1990 Gregg Smart was gunned down in his home in Derry, New Hampshire. On March 4, 1991 his wife Pamela Smart was placed on trial, and ultimately convicted of accomplice to first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and witness tampering.

 

The sensational aspects of the case — that Pamela was a school media coordinator who had been having an affair with one of the perpetrators of the crime, a 15-year-old student named William Flynn — sparked a media frenzy that captivated millions who watched the live trial and also spawned several books and two movies.

  

Now for the first time, Gregg’s brother Dean reveals the personal side of the tragedy — about growing up with a brother he idolized, and the true story of the events that led up to that tragic night. You’ll see the first televised trial in American history through the author's eyes — from the circus atmosphere in front of the courthouse, to the emotional testimony of witnesses, to the closing arguments and sentencing. 

  

A poignant memoir, Skylights and Screen Doors is an affecting story of innocence lost and a brother remembered - and of the trial that shocked the nation.

 

About the author: Dean J. Smart graduated from the University of New Hampshire’s writing program with a bachelor’s degree in English. While at UNH, Dean studied under Pulitzer-Prize-winning poet and U.S. Poet Laureate Charles Simic. Dean resides in a small New England town with his wife and family. A writer and poet, Dean is currently writing the sequel to Skylights and Screen Doors and is putting the final touches on a book of poetry. Learn more at www.SkylightsandScreendoors.com.
