Could it happen? In the aftermath of 9/11 fear and confusion created a country-wide cry for protection against another terrorist attack. The government responded by passing the Patriot Act and introducing a new agency, the Department of Homeland Security. These actions gave the Executive Branch powers not enjoyed since the Second World War. Then it happened! An unwarranted phone tap sends an FBI team to the right address in the wrong town; the home of Master Sergeant James Simpson. When the smoke clears, six innocent people are dead including Simpson’s wife and child. After the people involved decide the truth would devastate the new government programs and bring to an end their own careers, a story is concocted sparking a massive manhunt.

Tom Onstott is a retired explosives engineer, who lives with his wife, Pat on a small farm near Helena, Montana. He was raised in a mining camp near Yellowstone Park, an experience that was void of many amenities enjoyed by most youngsters; yet an upbringing he says he would not trade for anything. Lacking a movie theater, soda fountain or youth center, Tom and his friends found their entertainment in simple ways: sledding, fishing, hunting and of course forming little secret societies. Several of Tom’s early playmates and high school pals are still his closest friends. Tom’s work life took him on a magical journey: from the construction of massive hydroelectric dams in the Pacific Northwest, to the copper mines of Montana, to the search for oil in the Midwest, to the Iron fields of Minnesota, and to the coal mines of Kentucky. He was fond of saying: “I may not have reshaped the earth, but I sure as hell blasted a little sliver of it!” His passion for writing was spawned during college, but did not reach full bloom until he took early retirement to write fulltime. He has authored nine unpublished novels in the past ten years. His first attempt at writing a book was when he labored through his own memoir; an effort he now classifies as an amateurish mess. Without benefit of a rewrite or edit, it was delivered to his three sons at Christmas time, an act he hopes they accept as a token of love. His first novel, “SNIPER” is published by R. J. Buckley Publishing and his second "SURVIVING JARDINE" will be pubished in 2012.
