My New Novel Is Released: DUPLICITY. Written with Speaker Newt Gingrich!


What happens when the United States’ first woman president chooses politics over national security to help give her struggling re-election campaign a jumpstart?

In Duplicity, the result is a Benghazi style attack on a U.S. embassy by terrorists that puts the lives of American hostages in danger and threatens to destroy the careers of Washington’s most powerful leaders.

Duplicity is the first book in a series of novels that I am writing with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. We merge his Washington insider knowledge with my reporting about spies and criminals. Think House of Cards meets Jason Bourne!

The action jumps from London to Minneapolis to Mogadishu and, of course, Washington where President Sally Allworth must decide whether to negotiate with Al-Shababb terrorists in Somalia days before the presidential elections or have innocent Americans slaughtered.

Maine Captain Brooke Grant, an African American whose parents were murdered during the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, and Sergeant Walks Many Miles, a Crow Indian, are the military’s best hope for rescuing the hostages and killing a master terrorist known only as The Falcon who is forging an alliance between Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab and the Taliban.

Our book is being released today and Speaker Gingrich will be going on an extended national book tour along with Callista Gingrich, who will be signing copies of her new children’s book, Christmas in America.  I will be posting a sample chapter tomorrow of Duplicity that I hope will convince you that it should be part of your fall reading.

I appreciate your support because writing books is what enables me to pay the bills while I continue to blog without advertisements and do advocacy to improve our mental health care system. (order Duplicity here.)

Thanks and happy reading!
