What would you do for your country? In Afghanistan, a US Army Patrol is devastated by an enemy with sophisticated weaponry, while in D.C., Pentagon staffer Scott Jenson tips off the ambitious young reporter Brooke Kinley about a billionaire businessman’
Debuting at #13 on the Amazon.co.uk in its category, new bestseller Patriot is a pulse pounding, high octane adventure thriller with a heroine who is as happy running rapids as she is asking difficult questions at the Pentagon. Awarded two 'Homorable Mentions' at the San Francisco and Hollywood Book Festivals, this debut novel by A.S. Bond will be appreciated by fans of Clive Cussler, Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy.
A.S Bond is an internationally acclaimed travel writer and journalist. As the author of seven books, her own adventures have taken her around the world, from the cloud forests of Central America to D.C.’s corridors of power.
When writing Patriot, A.S. Bond drew on her experience of leading an award-winning canoe expedition in Labrador, later the subject of Lost Lands, Forgotten Stories; A Woman’s Journey to the Heart of Labrador published byHarperCollins, Canada and Eye Books in the UK (written under the name Alexandra Pratt). This gives Patriot a sense of ‘realness’
The author notes, “When I sat down to write my adventure thriller Patriot the old advice ‘write what you know’ came to mind. I realised what I knew was wilderness survival. The first in my new series of ‘Brooke Kinley Adventures’, my novel is, in part, based on my canoe expedition in a remote part of Canada, where I travelled with just a First Nations guide through some of the harshest country in North America.”
Lost Lands, Forgotten Stories was highly regarded:
"I have known a few wonderful-crazy, damn-fool writers who would risk their lives for a great adventure story, but I have met only two who would have paddled a canoe into the Labrador wilds. And one of them is dead. Alexandra Pratt is so reckless she scares me and so entrancing that I could not put her book down." - Ken McGoogan, author of Fatal Passage
“Lyrical and adventurous”
“The writing is stunning.” - Canoeist Magazine
"The climax is pure adventure." - Spirit of Canada Magazine
Patriot is now available as an ebook or in paperback through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple and Kobo, Scribd, Flipkart, Oyster, Page Foundry and to libraries via the Axis 360 platform by Baker and Taylor and Overdrive.
