Today's Guest in Author's Corner is Michael Pennington
Susan was content with her ordinary life. As ordinary as it can be when you're married to an officer in the submarine force. For the past twenty years she has wanted nothing more than to help her husband Bill succeed in his career and raise her children. Then one day the phone rang. After this mysterious call, nothing was the same. Suddenly, she is able to analyze situations and people more rapidly than she thought humanly possible. Anything or anyone that is out of place is immediately noted and its threat level determined. She has fighting and weapons skills, despite having never even held a gun. And most concerning and disconcerting is the strange voice in her head telling her what to do in any given situation, as though her life is one big mission - a mission she knows nothing about. And why do strangers keep speaking to her in a language she shouldn’t understand but does.
Now for the first time she is questioning everything she has ever believed about herself and her entire life. Looking for those answers opens the gate to unimaginable danger not only for herself but for what is most precious to her, her children. She will have to dig into something she never considered important before, her past. It will result in an incredible journey involving cold war spies, Russian intelligence, and old friends some of which she remembers, and others she doesn’t. As time works against her she must solve the mystery before her husband reaches port. All the while trying to protect her children and friends not to mention herself.
