Summary of my novel.

Thrust into the unwanted leadership of the president's secret unit, Hawks must lead his agency while worrying about the female agent with whom he's fallen in love.
Espionage-Terrorism Bureau (ETB)is located in Washington, D.C. and under the direct control of the President of the United States. It has approximately twelve-hundred agents stationed throughout the world. 

The action begins with Japanese Red Army terrorist kidnaping a professor's daughter thinking she belongs to the man they are after.  Steve Hawks (POV), a Field Director of E.T.B., pays the ransom and is told where the young woman is and that a surprise may await him.  He finds the young woman sitting on thirty sticks of dynamite.  After successfully freeing her from the danger, he escorts her home and discovers during an interview that her assailants were on their way to Washington, D.C.
 The terrorists then attack one of the Capitol buildings.  Hawks and his men kill all the terrorists in order to save the hostages.  It is here that Senator Patrick's name first comes up, but the mystery of why they were looking for him is left unanswered.
Hawks is appointed by the president to take over ETB, when the director retires.  He is not happy with the appointment, but accepts the position under the condition that he is allowed to personally conduct investigations.
Hawks first investigation as Director of Espionage, Terrorist Bureau deals with an international gun smuggling ring involving military personnel and aircraft.  Weapons are being shipped to Japan for resale to terrorists’ groups in the Far East.  A sting operation is developed with Sadie MacKenzie, a Field Director, as the bait.  At the completion of the investigation, it is believed that all of the ring members were arrested (it is not until later we find out that the true ring leader was never discovered).  Also during this investigation, Hawks' love blossoms for Sadie.
 After their wedding at the White house, the president gives them a wedding gift of two weeks in Sweden.  It is on their honeymoon in Sweden that Sadie Hawks is kidnapped.  Hawks believes that a terrorist group is responsible.  He is finally contacted and told that if he wants his wife back, a trade between her and Taylor, an individual whom Hawks arrested for espionage, will take place in Washington.
Hawks returns home to arrange the trade.  While walking down the street he notices a car passing slowly by with Sadie in the back seat.  When he attempts to rescue his wife from the car, he is shot by a kidnapper.
After his release from the hospital, Hawks makes the final arrangements for the release of Taylor.  It is at this time, the president calls with a new investigation for him.  It seems a senator's son is involved in a murder and the president wants him to handle it personally.

I am glad February is over. It ended with me falling last week and hurting my leg really bad. But, hopefully, it will get better or I will need to go to a specialist. If anyone knows a good bone doctor in Northwest Indiana, please leave a message below.

I have decided not to publish my series as an eBook at this time. I want to try and get an Agent and have a publishing company buy it. If this doesn't work, then I will go the eBook route.

Book Two is written and needs edited, so my work is cut out for me. Can't wait for the warmer weather to stay, I am really tired of winter.

It is hard to believe that it is January and I have been retired for 6 months. Usually at this time of the year, I am trying to figure out how to pass some seniors that just didn't make it because everyone has to pass. But, that's not my worry anymore.

Hawks Dilemma's cover is started and hopefully we will have before long and I will post it on my webpage, so keep looking for it.http://www.johnpoindexter.com/index.htm

"Jim Horton, Mike Phillips, and Steve Hawks have been together ever since Hawks was promoted to Field Director three years ago. This is the agency's trouble shooting team. They draw all the high-level cases traveling the world solving the problems that arise.

Hawks entered the subway train that arrived and headed for the next station hoping the stop would be the last. It wasn't his idea to pay the ransom, but the boss was dead set on it. Annie Patrick had been missing for a week before the ransom call came. The only reason Hawks and his team were involved was because her father had gone to school with their boss, Henry Jones.

As the train pulled into the 52nd street station, Hawks saw what he had been looking for at the other two stops, a dark skin oriental male wearing a red jacket leaning against the restroom wall appearing to be looking for someone."

Hawks Dilemma is a crime thriller about an agency under the control of only the president. Logline is:

Thrust into the unwanted leadership of the President's secret unit, Hawks must lead his agency while worrying about the female agent that he has fallen in love with.

One of the Beta Readers said, "Bear in mind I am just a reader and I read authors I like. You are maintaining my interest."

It seems the book must be worth something if they are keeping with it to read it all.

Now I need to get back on Hawks Revenge and get it finished.

Here the first page of a new story I am working on.  It is a Pat Michaels Detective Story.

 

                She opened her eyes to see Eric watching her. He smiled and slid his hand over her side onto her back. Pulling her closer, she could feel his welcome gift against her leg. He was in no hurry to leave and go to work, nor was she. They made love again just like they had during the night several times.

                The phone finally broke the tension and he swore. But she just kissed him again and let the phone ring. He started to reach for it and she said, “It’s mine, let it ring.”  So he did.

                It started again and this time, he said, “I think we need to answer that. It is getting late.”

                She looked at him and said, “Fine.”  She grabbed the phone and said hello.

                “Pat, you coming in today?” Julia said.

                “Why?”

                “Because you had a phone call and they want to meet with you.”

                “Okay, I will be there by eleven.” She hung up.

                “Work calls?” Eric said as he climbed out of bed.

                “I guess so.” She patted the bed. He smiled, leaned over and kissed her.

                “I need to go in too, he said. “They probably wonder why I am not there already.”

                “It seems that I may have a new client. Of course that is to be seen. The last one that came in wanted me to find their dog that was missing,” she said and climbed out of bed.

                “I’ll call you,” Eric said as Pat was heading for the shower.

                She stopped at the bathroom door to look at his six-foot five, hundred and eighty pound frame and thought wow, what a hunk.

                “Will I see you tonight?” she said.

                “Maybe.” He smiled and closed the door.

                Sergeant Eric Brown wasn’t worried about being late for work. Detectives could come and go as they pleased, and he was quite pleased this morning. Patricia Michaels owns her own detective agency, so she too could go in whenever it pleases her. But, she was quite pleased by him this morning.  Now she would have to see what this new case could be about and hoped it was worth taking on.
