FLASH DRIVE EBOOK.jpg

Dick Thornby is not Hollywood's idea of a spy.

     He's a new kind of spy for a new kind of world.

My Latest Book

 

Flash Drive  is the third Dick Thornby adventure, following on the heels of my spy thrillers Net Impact and Wet Work

It's complicated when you're an international spy with a wife, a kid, and a mortgage, but everyone thinks you're really a wastewater treatment consultant. It's bad when your family finds out about your clandestine life, your wife wants to keep tabs on where you are, and your kid tries to emulate your espionage activities. But, it's downright dangerous for your career, your family, your colleagues, and your prospects of living until retirement when the powers-that-be at the Subsidiary discover you haven't been keeping the secrets you should have.

 

Forced to bring his family in tow on an off-the-books mission to investigate a mysterious flash in the middle of the Australian Outback, Dick Thornby has to contend with foreign agents, a sinister Japanese cult, outlandish conspiracy theories, and futuristic weapons from the past to save his family and himself while still completing his bizarre quest for the truth about what happened out woop woop and why so many people with weapons care.

Thoughtful reviews are always welcome.

“FLASH DRIVE builds on the universe that Mr. Bingle began with NET IMPACT and continued with WET WORK. This time, everyman spy Dick Thornby and his family are on a mission to… wait, huh? What secret agent in his right mind brings his family along on a dangerous espionage assignment? Find out inside this grand entertainment that sports an intriguing plot, well-written and thrilling action scenes, and a few laughs, too!”

Raymond Benson, author of Hotel Destiny—a Ghost Noir and The Black Stiletto Serial
