On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice…you have to get it yourself.
Shocked to discover Nat’s taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. He’s just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nat’s always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secret—or their marriage?
EVIL WINDS – A FAST-PACED THRILLER EXPLORES THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY HAS CHOSEN TO IGNORE
With His Intimate Knowledge of the People, Places, and Politics of Sub-Saharan Africa, Award-Winning Writer and
Naval Officer Michael Shusko Adds a Breathtaking Sense of Authenticity to His Sprawling Novel
Author Michael Shusko is no ordinary novelist. A decorated naval officer and physician, fluent in Arabic, he has worked in some of the most dangerous areas of the world. In EVIL WINDS, the third installment of his Tradecraft book series, he focuses on the decades-long humanitarian crisis that has plagued the African country of Sudan and spilled across its border to Chad.
Relentless conflict has resulted in the destruction of entire villages and the massacre of thousands of people in Sudan’s Darfur region. Massive refuge camps have sprung up with little chance of resettlement of their occupants. Shusko uses these real-world events and locations as the backdrop for his stunning thriller, EVIL WINDS.
The story centers on the crusade of an idealistic American journalist, Angie Bryant, who wants to wake the world to the atrocities being committed in Darfur – no matter the personal risk. She enlists the help of Jason Russo, an NGO doctor working in Chad. When the pair witness Janjaweed Arab terrorists gun down a dozen Darfurian refugees in cold blood, they realize that time is against them, and they set out on a journey to uncover the truth behind these crimes. They are soon captured by the vicious Janjaweed leader himself, who is just a cog in an international conspiracy to bilk Africa of its oil and mineral riches. Using subterfuge, Angie and Jason manage to escape, rescuing twelve-year-old Halima, a courageous Darfurian girl, along the way.
But once again they are captured, this time by a troop of Sudanese soldiers. With the help of veteran CIA operative Steve Connors, they are freed from prison. Despite Steve’s advice that they return to the U.S., Angie and Jason – along with Halima – continue their quest to uncover the truth about government corruption, human trafficking, and other crimes that have remained hidden for much too long.
EVIL WINDS is a powerful story of international conspiracies, terrorism, and murder. Michael Shusko takes readers to locales that few of us can imagine, populated with ruthless villians as well as ordinary people whose courage is inspiring. With his insider’s eye for detail and nuance, Shusko has produced a novel that is destined to become a classic.
