Kerry Patton has written nonfiction about subjects like the War on Terror and private contractors who serve in war zones. Now the nationally known security expert has a debut novel coming out, America’s Secret Warriors.
The publisher’s release described the book as “a war novel inspired by real people, real events and a very real war.”
Patton engages the reader in the story of the main character Declan Collins, a former member of the U.S. military. Collins is a newlywed who likely didn’t envision working for one of America’s most secretive organizations.
Collins gets a mysterious phone call that propels him to Afghanistan to serve in a secret civilian role alongside members of the military. Collins’ story takes the reader to a place and arena few will ever know personally.
James Michael Pratt, N.Y. Times and USA Today bestselling author of Ticket Home, described the novel:
"Kerry Patton’s breakout novel based on events the author lived, is both highly entertaining and educational. It delivers us into a world where everything is laid on the line for country and for each other. We live in a new world and with a new kind of warfare confronting America. This is a must read for those who wish to fully understand it. Highly recommended."
Patton is a regular contributor to The US Report; he is featured as an expert on TV networks like Fox News and on radio shows. He has written for numerous national and international publications and he also serves as a senior analyst for Wikistrat.
An internationally recognized security, terrorism and intelligence professional, Patton has taught domestic and international organizations in terrorism, intelligence, and physical security-related issues, which included the National Security Agency. He has briefed high level government officials including ambassadors, members of the U.S. Congress, and Pentagon staff.
America’s Secret Warriors is scheduled for release December 10. The book will be available at amazon.com and other online venues. To learn more, visit Patton’s book page.
