Both thought provoking and entertaining, Factitious takes place in current time with fictional characters and issues that closely parallel actual personalities and current affairs. The story involves an international plot, decades in its planning, to destroy America financially, militarily, and politically. Unknown to the public, the current President is implicit in the successful execution of the scheme; and he needs a second term to complete the mission. The conspiracy is collectively discovered by a group of retired Military Intelligence Officers. Among them, Jack Powers is chosen to expose the President's treason. In alternating clever moves and counter moves, Jack seems to have won the battle of wits until the President and his international conspirators devise an ingenious and potentially fatal blow that seemingly neutralizes Powers. One thing is certain… the remaining veterans (and other sympathetic patriots) must somehow carry on to squelch the scheme before even more sinister international consequences can reach culmination.

About the Author-
Jack Pavuk currently resides in Richardson, TX, a suburb of Dallas, with his wife of 50+ years. He has had a background of broad experiences, including: a retired USAF navigator and pilot, a successful sales/management second career with a Swedish biological company, the developer and chief executive of his own medical software company, and various consulting and other part time jobs to keep from actually physically retiring and “going to rust”. The Air Force career, especially, has allowed him to see much of the globe. The book fulfills his lifelong dream to write a novel.
