Cris De Niro worked his way up to the top of the hedge fund world. Yet all of his money couldn't protect him from losing his wife on 9/11. 10 years have passed since the tragedy. Turning to his faith, De Niro now lives for a higher purpose. He acquires a lackluster counter-terrorism agency, in order to transform it into The Watchman for the United States, but there's not a moment to lose.
De Niro and his new agency unknowingly become targets when they stumble upon a connection between a rich Iranian businessman and a Mexican drug cartel. First, their agent sent to investigate goes missing and then strange events start to unfold at the border. Making matters worse, they suspect that there’s a leak among them. It’s up to De Niro and his new team to protect America from a possible terrorist attack more catastrophic than 9/11 …and it appears he and his children are targeted too!
About the Author
With his bestselling debut political thriller, THE WATCHMAN of EPHRAIM, Gerard de Marigny has burst upon the literary world stage with vigor and poise! Founding JarRyJorNo Publishing in January 2011, de Marigny dons many hats, that of publisher, graphic designer, marketer, as well as author. The result, so far, has been a sparkling debut novel that became a #1 Amazon Bestselling Geopolitical Thriller! On July 4th, de Marigny embarked on his 75-day PATRIOT Blog Tour making over 50 appearances on book reviewers sites located all over the world, garnering stellar reviews and raves along the way. In July, de Marigny also sat down for an up-close and personal interview with Philip Norbert of Kingmaker Productions. Shot by famed Cinematographer Jay Nemeth of Flightline Films, the Q&A session has garnered over 5,000 viewers on YouTube. Before writing fiction, de Marigny was the lead guitarist for 80's rock band, AMERICADE. Though the last lineup of the band broke up in 1995, de Marigny was approached by Aaron McCaslin, President of Retrospect Records, a label dedicated to promoting heavy rock bands from the 80's. A lifelong fan himself, McCaslin offered de Marigny a record contract. In return, de Marigny supplied Retrospect Records with every recording, whether previously released or not, in his possession. The result has become a remarkable 70-song, 4-CD boxed set branded, AMERICADENCE: 1980 1995. Says de Marigny, "It's an amazing feat what Aaron pulled off. He literary brought back to life just about the entire musical catalog of AMERICADE ... and the timing couldn't be better!" The boxed set will include a discount coupon for signed paper or eBook editions of both books in the CRIS DE NIRO series. November 2011 brought BOOK II of de Marigny's CRIS DE NIRO series, SIGNS of WAR and the author is already at work writing BOOK III, RISE to the CALL due out in spring 2012.
