ULTIMATE BETRAYAL IS A STAND-ALONE THRILLER INSPIRED BY ACTUAL EVENTS THE AUTHOR EXPERIENCED IN VIETNAM
Ultimate Betrayal is a thriller that takes the reader on an action-packed, adrenaline-boosting ride, from the streets of South Philadelphia, through the Afghanistan War, to Mafia drug smuggling, to the halls of power at the CIA and the White House.
David Hood comes from the streets of South Philadelphia, becomes a decorated Afghanistan War hero, builds a highly successful business, marries the woman of his dreams, and has two children he adores.
But there are two ghosts in David's life. One is the guilt he carries over the death of his brother. The other is a specter that will do anything to murder him. David has long lost the belief that good will triumph over evil. The deaths of his wife and children only reinforce that cynicism. And leave him with nothing but a bone-chilling, all-consuming need for revenge.
ULTIMATE BETRAYAL received the Tony Hillerman Award for Best Fiction Book in the 2014 New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards.
