transports you to the secret front line of the Cold War


End of October 1973, near Esendere, Turkey. The border was less than a mile away. We stopped by a stream to clean up before entering Iran. Little did I know that less than six years later, this would be the site of a dramatic escape from revolutionary Iran by employees of EDS, Ross Perot's computer services company. That story was chronicled in Ken Follett's book, On Wings of Eagles. Naturally, it had to serve as a location in the Raven-One Team thriller.

The Caspian Intercept is a work of fiction interwoven into a timeline of real events. The following events actually occurred:

1. The events depicted during takeover of the American Embassy in Tehran.

2. The IBEX Project. The depiction of Site T-1 is a fictitious representation of the Tacksman-1 site operated by the CIA on the Caspian Sea in northern Iran.


reveals the silent conflict waged in the shadows

The Cold War lasted forty plus years, a time of tensions between two super-powers with the capacity to destroy each other and the world. Proxy wars were fought on many fronts. One front was invisible, a Secret Cold War: the signal intelligence war. Reliable and timely gathering of electronic intelligence (ELINT) was vital, a first line of defense.

Thomas Jefferson: "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."

The Ethiopian Intercept is a new addition to the tradition of military, espionage, and adventure novels loved by fans of Alistair MacLean, Robert Ludlum, Clive Cussler, and Tom Clancy.

The Ethiopian Intercept is second installment in the Secret Cold War Series.
