Descripción

Paperback. 128 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.8in. x 0.4in.The settings of this book are many and varied. One setting is the Philippine city of Manila; the next setting is the container ship which transports the villains. The third setting is the Panama Canal; the fourth setting is the Republic of Panama itself. Nick Savage is the protagonist secretly employed as a sleeper agent, working for the CIA to keep watch over the Panama Canal. He is to report anything suspicious and discovers an Al-Queda plot to destabilize the free world, using the Panama Canal as a pawn. The antagonists in this book are a group of Philippine Nationals of a designated Moro faction of an Al-Queda branch. This book is likely to appeal to readers because therein is a plot that leads the reader through true descriptions of many of the Panama Canal Locks operations and hardware. The target audience could be anyone who enjoys an action adventure with a different plotWith a lot of insight into the operation and maintenance of the Canal itself. I worked at the Panama Canal Locks so that the reader will benefit from an insiders look at the operation of the Panama Canal. I also know the weaknesses that are inherent in the operation. I lead the reader through many of my own personal experiences on board ships, and an abundant knowledge of ship handling from many aspects. This item ships from multiple locations.
