Book Concept: "Now we get serious about a War on Drugs: The real inside story on the drug trade in the U.S." Shadow Warrior is an action packed thriller that places the reader in the intricate world of drug money laundering. It gives a unique view of this world taken from actual case files of federal law enforcement authorities. Shadow Warrior introduces a new use of the successful spy genre moving the action in a high tech environment with stylistic scenes and characters that will linger with the reader. Manuscript Synopsis: Shadow Warrior tells the story of John Stryker, a CIA agent given the assignment of taking the War on Drugs to a new level by disrupting the drug business in the U.S. Based on actual cases from federal law enforcement files, Stryker employs high tech and old fashion bravado in an attempt to destroy the illegal business of a covert drug kingpin, Jerry Roth. By putting intense pressure on this establishment multi-millionaire while stopping his ability to conduct drug laundering, the reader is brought into the intricate mechanism of drug laundering through established US businesses with surprising revelations. Along the way, Stryker develops a romantic relationship with Roth's wife, Sharon. Initially, Stryker views Sharon only as a way to get closer to Roth, but a genuine romance develops between them fueled by erotic and passionate encounters. This relationship adds to the central conflict. Their romance becomes a casualty of the war between Stryker and Roth. Stryker resolves the central conflict by a series of action-packed physical disruptions of Roth's businesses. Stryker has to overcome the obstacles of Roth's large financial resources; his relationship with Sharon, and the mercenary security force Roth employs to protect his businesses. In addition, tension builds as Stryker must accomplish his mission before Roth's operation merges with a West Coast operation that will make the drug traffickers even more powerful. Ruthless South American drug manufacturers up the ante by pressuring Roth and the West Coast interests to merge to insure the continued laundering of their illegal profits. The action climaxes with a confrontation between Stryker and Roth with Sharon caught in the middle between the two. John Stryker changes throughout the story from being an independent, 'lone-ranger' to a person who realizes how to depend on others. His relationship with Sharon is instrumental in these changes, but also his relationship with his shadow agent, Deborah Remanski, is key as he learns how to rely on her as a full partner. The central theme of the story reveals the methods common in the drug world but unknown to the general public. It brings the reader into the U.S. infrastructure that fuels the illegal drug trade and how conventional businesses support the proliferation of this industry. This story emphasizes how these practices take place in our communities and are not isolated to the low-life or foreign characters so often portrayed in other books and movies. The reader will leave this story and look differently at some common institutions in their community. The story takes place primarily in New York City with scenes in South America, Langley Virginia and Chicago. Each setting is colorfully described allowing the reader to paint images as if being at that location.
