The Ericksen Connection by Barry L Becker
The Ericksen Connection is an espionage suspense thriller about betrayal, PTSD, corruption, conspiracy, murder, and terrorism. Mark Ericksen, former Navy SEAL Team-Six operator, and successful business executive was all about duty, honor, and country. He resigned his commission in 2002, and over the next several years worked for three defense contractors, maintaining his top secret security clearance while concealing his PTSD.
In 2009, the CIA received actionable intelligence about a wealthy terrorist mastermind who needs a classified biometrics encryption communication system to coordinate his sleeper cell operatives in the USA to launch a horrific nuclear attack on two American cities.
When America urgently needs Ericksen’s services again, the CIA tasks him for Operation Avenging Eagles to sabotage the plans. Can Ericksen avoid discovery and thwart the nuclear attack before a network of sleeper cell terrorists achieve their evil destruction?
