Houston, TX, May 02, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- When the safety of the United States is threatened, three Americans risk the ultimate sacrifice to uncover and expose a global conspiracy to defraud the nation of trillions of dollars in an operation funded by Washington war profiteering and illegal drug sales. The despicable activities are sanctioned by the CIA, controlled by Mafia and laundered by Wall Street traders.
That’s the plot of “Blood Profit$: The Lithium Conspiracy,” a political thriller written by James N. Patrick Sr. and J. Victor Tomaszek. Patrick will sign and sell copies of the novel from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, May 3, at MenilFest, an art and book festival, at The Menil Collection, 1533 Sul Ross St., in Houston.
“Blood Profit$: The Lithium Conspiracy” is the first book of a trilogy by first-time author Patrick and five-time novelist Tomaszek. The next book, “Blood Profit$: The Price of Indifference,” is scheduled for release in late 2014 or early 2015.
“We started writing the books via email several years ago, coming at the trilogy from different life experiences and political beliefs,” said Patrick, who met Tomaszek through a shared love of alpacas. “The main characters of the first book, Generation Xers, are like many people the readers probably know, and they face ethical and moral decisions throughout the story.”
“Blood Profit$: The Lithium Conspiracy” explores how far the United States could fall as greed, entitlements and corruption all gain greater acceptance. The book is available at www.Roundfire-Books.com and other major book sellers, including www.Amazon.com.
