Product description

Product Description

While vacationing with his family in Europe, businessman Benjamin Sager is assaulted and abducted, awakening in a small cell occupied only by another captive American. Ben’s senses send him reeling into his own past; to a place both exhilarating and terrifying. As Sager struggles to determine where he is and why he and his cellmate are being held, Christopher Falen, a covert agent of the CIA offshoot, Unit 1, uncovers a disturbing pattern of unexplained American tourist disappearances, seemingly vanishing without a trace.

Two paths cross as Falen’s investigation and Sager’s desperate will to survive draw them both into the deadly web of the Shield of Darius. A timely and relevant thriller, The Shield of Darius takes the reader on a journey through the maze of international espionage and politics between the United States and the Middle East and poses the question: Who can be trusted?

About the Author

Allen Kent is the pen name of Kent A. Farnsworth to distinguish his novels from his academic writing. Kent was born in Walter Reed Hospital in Washington DC, but has lived west of the Mississippi since his family moved to California when he was less than a year old. Four years of his life were spent in Iran and England, and he has traveled extensively in Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia - experiences that are reflected in both his fiction and non-fiction work. His career experiences include five years as a pilot in the U.S. Air Force, employment with one of the nation's leading semi-conductor industries, presidency of a community college, and a university professorship. In addition to his writing, he now works as a consultant/coach for a number of colleges across the United States. He and his wife Holly are avid travelers, gardeners, and conservationists, and live in an eco-friendly home in rural southwest Missouri.
