The Op - “It’s a hunt forward op,” the president said, “and your target is America’s first home-grown terrorist cell.”
The Team - The president's request propels brilliant cyber sleuth Zuri Slade into the clandestine world of espionage, where failure can endanger thousands of American lives and blow Zuri’s chance for a career with the CIA.
The Stakes - Tracking the terrorists leads Zuri from Washington, D.C. to a Midwest backwater, where residents suffer a peculiar illness, the “Van Gogh Syndrome.” Death looms over the stricken community, but there’s an even larger threat, one Zuri could never have anticipated.
The Villains - A psychotic nuclear scientist is plotting with legendary North Korean spy, Cobra, to blow the nuclear plant, using a chip stolen from the CIA after the Korean War. Only Jesse Stephenson, a former CIA spy, knows where the chip is, but Jesse’s dying of cancer.
The Thickening Plot - Is this fight too personal, or will Zuri confront America’s enemies—and personal demons, her hate for the terrorists who murdered her parents—in time?
“Van Gogh Syndrome” pulls thriller lovers into the new frontier of war, a new and, possibly, the final war that has ignited in cyberspace but one that will be finished in America’s back yard by terrorists whose identities no one can predict.
A thriller for lovers of the chase, “Van Gogh Syndrome” is the series kickoff and an explosive look at conflicts faced by America’s warriors on the cyber war frontier. An action-packed read recommended for Baldacci and Clancy fans.

"I was caught in the first few pages, and hooked right to the end. There is enough action to keep the plot moving rapidly but descriptive passages are thorough. The characters are well developed, and the depictions of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and rural Clermont County are spot-on. I particularly enjoyed the author's choice of first person narrative for more than one of the key players. It made for a fun read and works well to connect the reader with the character."
