Martin McCrary, an aging legend of the CIA's Clandestine Service, is in serious trouble. His career is on the rocks when he's contacted by Fatima Lavasani, an Iranian woman he knew and loved as a young man but hasn't seen for many years. Fatima shares a terrible secret and the couple struggles to survive a terrorist plot that carries them from the streets of New Orleans to Vienna, Tehran and the Caucasus. Set in the first years of the Obama administration, "The Sword of the Prophet" is both a love story and a timely examination of contemporary issues, to include America's War on Terrorism and our complicated relationship with the Republic of Iran. No ordinary spy story, the Prophet treats both heros and villains as real people, with comprehensible if sometimes twisted motivations. The novel challenges the reader to examine preconceived notions about America's place in the world and rewards the reader with a fresh perspective.

About the Author:

Phillip Otts is a veteran of the CIA's Clandestine Service. After spending much of his adult life overseas, he retired in 2006 and began pursuing a life-long interest in writing. His first novel, "The Sword of the Prophet", reflects a serious effort to understand the motivations of America's bitterest enemies, to capture their world view in the words and actions of the novel's antagonists, and to examine America's place in the world from a fresh perspective. He also sought to create a flawed, realistic hero swept up in events beyond his control, as an anecdote to the adolescent fantasies one normally encounters in an espionage thriller. The author's second novel, "A Storm Before the War," will be released by Bygone Era Books in February 2016.
