International Spy Thriller, THE DAMASCUS LETTER, Released by Black Diamond Publishing

Nearly a decade after 9/11, the question haunting America’s intelligence community is not IF America will be attacked again, but when, where, and by whom? How will it unfold? And can we stop it? One man is about to find out...
March 30, 2010 - PRLog -- Black Diamond Publishing is proud to announce the release of The Damascus Letter, the new international spy thriller from debut author, Daniel Dick.

Akil Hassan was the CIA's top agent inside the Middle East, until he broke the Agency’s rules. Cast out, his dreams shattered, he's now being offered a second chance. What he doesn't realize is that his life is about to be turned upside down, because tomorrow morning a terrorist is going to unleash a group of suicide bombers on New York City killing hundreds of innocent civilians, including a member of his own family. But the bloodshed, as bad as it is going to be, is nothing compared to what's coming next. Intelligence out of Baghdad indicates a far deadlier attack is in the works, one involving the highest levels of the Iranian Government.

In order to stop it—in order to save tens of thousands of lives—Akil Hassan will have to risk his career, his future, and his life, by breaking the Agency’s rules all over again. And this time, there will be no second chances. One man. One chance. Everything to lose!

With a tightly woven plot, multi-dimensional characters, and incredible attention to detail, The Damascus Letter (Black Diamond Publishing, 0986495905, $14.99) offers a rare and fascinating glimpse into the terrorist mindset while delivering a provocative and pulse-pounding tale of covert espionage that will leave readers engaged long after the story has ended.
