Michael Dolan is a stoic perfectionist and former special operations pilot working a staff job at the Pentagon. After accepting an improbable CIA offer to help prevent impending terrorist attacks in Europe, Dolan finds that of the demons he must prevail against, the most terrible are those from within.
DEVOLUTION is book one of a psychological spy thriller series (The Devolution Trilogy) and was nominated for the 2020 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award.
FROM THE AUTHOR: Fans of Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Identity will appreciate the internecine struggle and cryptic complexity of the protagonist, Michael Dolan, as will fans of Tom Clancy’s Patriot Games who savor a page-turner about an unlikely spy thrust into adversity, only to emerge the strongest and most capable of them all.
When I began writing The DEVOLUTION Trilogy I wanted to create a story where the depth and complexity of the main character, Michael Dolan, were just as compelling and important as the plot. As spy thrillers go, this series has everything readers of the genre crave: action, suspense, cliffhangers and mystery. What makes the story so unique (and that much more captivating), however, is Dolan's dark and labyrinthine psychological struggle as he navigates the challenges of his top - secret missions while confronting the demons of his past.
"Seat-of-your pants thriller...refreshingly different...and hard to put down."
"Highly Recommended Spy Thriller!"
"Devolution will keep you on the edge of your seat."
