INFAMY

Tom Milton

Did our government know in advance about the attack on 9-11?  Did they let it happen so they could get us into a war? Can a war on terror achieve peace? Fenly Aquino and Raquel Lopez, members of an international security team, pursue these questions in their efforts to stop another attack on an unknown target in New York City. Working together in Madrid’s underworld of prostitutes, pimps, drug dealers, and money runners, they have only two weeks to unravel the plot, which involves the use of laundered money to buy weapons of mass destruction.

Praise

Praise of Tom Milton’s previous works…

All the Flowers is a story of the growing loss of innocence through the years of the Vietnam War, a fascinating read all the way through.”—The Midwest Book Review

The Admiral’s Daughter has all the elements of a Greek tragedy—a great man who falls from grace, a family drama that pits father against daughter, and retribution for ancestral sin—while at the same time it’s a moving story of love and redemption.”— Eileen Lanahan, author of An Act of Love.

The setting of No Way to Peace is superb; the portrayal of the social scene and Argentine mores is understandable. Historic political background is cleverly woven into the story. The characters are clearly defined and are consistent with who they are. This book makes an excellent book club choice, with pertinent questions in the back.”Heartland Reviews
