The war on terror is here.

Grey Stark is a cold war hero without a cold war. Once the pride of the CIA, he's been shelved for two decades in a dead-end Paris posting. But when an intriguing new bomb turns up, Stark's the only one unwilling to write it off as an attack by Iranian terrorists. Thanks to his old contacts, he just might be the right man for the job—if he lives. That's The Deadfall Project: an old-fashioned Interpol-and-assassins spy tale, with a savvy nod to modern politics. 

Deadfall became a smash self-publishing success the moment it hit the virtual shelves last fall—rising to #304 on Amazon's Bestsellers and #3 on the site's Shakers and Movers list. A triumphant debut for novelist Brett James, it moved so fast that Fallacy Publications picked it up to republish it. Copies descend on bricks-and-mortars on February 24th.

from the back cover:

Iranian terrorists plant a bomb in Paris, nearly killing millions, and one man must track them down before they strike again.

CIA agent Grey Stark is back from two decades of retirement, searching for an elusive bomb that could level a city in seconds. As NATO amasses troops at Iran's border, Stark races across France with his ex-wife, digging through his own dark past in a desperate attempt to defuse the war.

Hunted by a world-class gunman, a playboy terrorist, and half the world's intelligence agencies, he realizes that even his own boss will stop at nothing to protect the secrets of The Deadfall Project...
