The Chancellor Organization is a world-wide secret 'information enterprise' owned by the reclusive multi-billionaire Duke Chancellor, whose colorful executive Joe Czarzhynensky orchestrates its influence to benefit or punish people where the law has proven inadequate. Denver psychologist Jake Lewis stops at Eddie's Place for entertainment and food after a day of counseling veterans at the Denver VA Hospital. There he falls hopelessly in love with Sasha, a gorgeous and uniquely talented vocalist, and only niece of Duke Chancellor. Jake and Sasha agree to meet again at Eddie's Place after she returns from her next performance in Fresno, but she never arrives because she is among the missing after Khalid Kayani executes the most devastating terrorist attack since 9/11. Jake is suspended in emotional limbo, unaware of her fate, fearing she stood him up, or is dead. After a professional conference at NYU, he joins friends at Club 46 in Manhattan, where he is shocked to hear her distinctive voice from the stage. However, when his friends try to reunite them after the show, Sasha does not recognize him because she suffers from amnesia. Join the rich and compelling suspense, running the entire gamut of human emotion, as The Chancellor Organization arranges creative psychotherapy for Sasha and then assists General Murray of the CIA in their search for Rasheed Shirani, the planner of the Fresno incident. Delight in their creative persuasion techniques, as Joe and General Murray manipulate influential people to capture Rasheed and bring him to justice in an unusual exercise of 'the law of the jungle' where the jury expresses the true conscience of the people.

When Jake meets beautiful singer Sasha, his life changes irrevocably. But then the city of Fresno suffers a

About the Author:

Philip L. Rettew was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on June 28, 1945. He graduated from the Reading Senior High School in Reading, Pennsylvania in 1963, and Yale College in New haven, Connecticut in 1967, after which he spent four years of active duty in the Army Security Agency, including tours of duty in Turkey and Japan where he was engaged in electronic intercept operations before being honorably discharged in 1971. He then enrolled in the Temple University Graduate School in Philadelphia, supporting himself with the GI bill and a graduate assistantship, eventually earning a Master's Degree in Psychology in 1973. After working in a local mental health program in Pottsville, Pennsylvania as an emergency services and referral officer for about a year, he moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he counseled drug addicts at a methadone rehabilitation clinic while conducting research with methods of measuring treatment success for substance addiction. He married LeAnn Lynn Gorrell in 1975, with whom he raised two sons, and started his career in the securities industry as a financial consultant for Merrill Lynch in January of 1976. In April of 1979, he took advantage of an opportunity to join the Merrill Lynch Market Analysis Department in southern Manhattan, where he started to develop computerized technical analysis of financial markets while advising the firm's world-wide sales force about trading and investment opportunities until the 9/11 attacks in 2001, which he witnessed first-hand. In 2002 he took a position writing technical research reports and providing trading advice to institutional clients of a small regional brokerage firm in New Jersey until early 2010 when economic conditions forced his employer to close. Within a month he started writing The Fresno Incident, satisfying a latent life-long desire to write a full-length novel. He and his wife live in Branchburg, New Jersey.

Review:

"...keep(s) readers not only intellectually engaged in the clever plotting, but emotionally engaged in its characters as well. A plot-heavy, action-filled read that thrills with international intrigue."
