Manuscript Completed: with Revenge comes Terror, a jihadist attack on America
An ISIS attack on the U.S. is imminent, but how do you tell Americans to be vigilant yet prepare them for the inevitable? You tell them a story of what could happen and then provide them with heroes who can give them back a feeling that the world can become right again.
As author S.P. Grogan, I have provided readers with a political action thriller, a mini-epic entitled, “with Revenge comes Terror—jihadist attack on America” (completed at 170,000 words).
What I seek is a literary agent and then a publisher who can see the story’s value and work on a fast-track basis to provide entertainment of positive resolutions to the public during these critical times of fear and uncertainty.
As a past magazine editor, ex-elected public official and former Shubert Playwriting Fellow, my evolved writing specialty has been to publish historical mysteries: Vegas Die (2008), Captain Cooked (2013), and Atomic Dreams (2015). Two of these have won awards. I have currently been in France researching a psychological novel on the life of the Marquis La Fayette.
with Revenge comes Terror—jihadist attack on American has several layers of plotting, but over-all the central perspectives are: Khalaf, an Islamic terrorist, ambitious and glory seeking, who wants to join the upper rank leadership of al-Qaeda; two bored and ambivalent American mulit-millionaires who think it would be a lark to hire the lackluster ratings-dropping TV reality show, King’s Retribution, to go hunting for Osama bin Laden.
With the killing of bin Laden by U.S. Navy SEALS, al Qaeda launches a revenge plot to attack the U.S. worse economic destruction than 9/11. How the terrorist operation is conceived is the surprise mystery solved: they gain their ideas from the plots of American best-sellers. Our heroes, the wealthy, reality TV stars, a disgruntled CIA agent uncover the plot and the race is on to try and stop three attacks across the country to happen simultaneously. Plus, romance arises in the midst of battle; and gameplay technology helps to save the day.
U.S. Intelligence agents will approve that the factual elements of who’s who within al-Qaeda and the historic timeline are woven seamlessly into the plot action. The novel mimics the thriller writing of authors Vince Flynn and Tom Clancy, as well as making several tongue-in-cheek comments about today’s emphasis on television pop culture.
Above all, the attack at soft American targets could happen as this story is written.
