The Jezebel Defenestration – From The Publisher

From the publisher:

N. Roland Norman, author of the one-in-a-lifetime-thriller The Prometheus Rumspringa, takes us on another thrill ride of our life.  Virus-packing elite terrorists take over a small factory in Topeka, Kansas.  A city that could be anywhere.  Who cares?  WRONG.  The factory makes air-filled packaging cushions, which are sent…worldwide.  And it’s almost Thanksgiving!  CORRECT.  The only man for the job?  Archer.  Pulse-pounding action.  Deadly quiet.  Insane calm.  What starts as a normal terrorist standoff turns serious when The Corporation Company becomes involved.  What will happen when an Immovable Rock meets an Intransigent Object?  OF COURSE.  Deadly love.  Now Archer is racing for his life, and the life of his one remaining love, while the fate of the world hinges on his next move, as Black Friday looms.  Only one thing is for certain.

Excerpt: The Jezebel Defenestration

Archer sat down in the chair, a coiled viper ready to strike at the slightest provocation.  He didn’t want to be here.  In this office.  Not now.  Not when Femmerelle was out there somewhere, needing him.  In trouble.

The Director Adjunct tapped his fingers on his temple.  “You had us fooled, Archer,” he growled.  “You almost slipped it right under our noses.”

“The closer to your nose, the farther from your eyes,” Archer said dryly.

“Indeed,” replied The Director Adjunct.

Then The Director Adjunct smiled.  The smile caught Archer off guard.  It was a wide smile, showing a lot of pearly whites.  Not a smile of mirth.  The smile of a predator.  Archer had seen that smile once before.  Seven years ago, to be precise.  Back then, things were easier.  Decisions were made without two eyes looking backward.  Now that smile had returned.  Archer suddenly realized that maybe The Director Adjunct knew something he didn’t.

No matter.  Archer knew how to learn information.  It was the easiest thing in the world, when you knew what you need to know to know it.
