A fresh voice in mystery and suspense has emerged with his latest novel, The Auctioneer, a captivating covert international thriller filled with riveting characters and a gripping storyline amidst spellbinding twists and turns. Think: Bourne meets Bond meets National Treasure. It is a brilliant follow up to his previous novels, The Disillusioned and Waking Lazarus, which garnered the praise of Hollywood’s elite including Judith McCreary (Co-EP, Law & Order:SVU, Criminal Minds, and CSI) and Peter Anderson (Oscar Winner, Cinematographer). With the release of The Auctioneer slated for February 25, 2019, Williams is proving once again that he is a storyteller on the rise.
Chase Hardeman, a former special ops veteran, is left questioning whether his past covert missions in the Middle East are the cause of the chaos that’s erupted in his life. Dreams of leaving a clandestine war behind and becoming a legend like his father in the auction arena teeter on the brink once he implements a contingency plan amidst an FBI investigation. Captivated by an old flame, Chase navigates the dark corridors of the collector car world in search of a myth. He believes finding this hidden treasure will reveal answers to a ghost buried in the desert of Mosul known to US intelligence as the Prodigal. On this perilous quest, Chase is drawn closer to a deadly threat as he leverages the criminal underworld to prevent a global terrorist attack. With the clock ticking, Chase is forced to relive the past in an imminent showdown and discovers the truth is not as it seems.
