A leading publisher of Genre Fiction, Pro Se Productions announces the release of the first volume in a new series from Author James Hopwood. Cast in the classic mold of 1960s and 70s men of espionage and intrigue, Hopwood brings his enigmatic man of mystery, Jarvis Love, to Pro Se in The Danakil Deception.
“Spy stories,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, “are tales that appeal to so many readers on so many levels. And what gets pulpier than a guy taking on evil one on one with a gun and a few tricks up his sleeves, be they gadgets or skills beyond the average citizen? Secret Agent X along with several other Pulp type characters carried on the good fight in the early 20th Century and then Bond, Helm, and a whole cadre of others followed up in the paperbacks. The Danakil Deception is a sort of reintroduction to that type of spy tale, but it’s also got the benefit of being written by an author who understands not only what appeals from the past, but how to write espionage so readers of today will stay interested and engaged.”
When archaeologists at the Danakil Depression in Ethiopia – the hottest place on Earth – discover a ruby measuring six feet in diameter, the world's scientific community is thrown into a spin. But it's not only scientists who are interested in the discovery. In the wrong hands, the ruby could be used to power a terrifying weapon – a weapon that could change the fate of the world.
Meet Jarvis Love, the young operative assigned to investigate the find. Thrown into a harsh unforgiving environment, Love finds himself battling a neo-Nazi with a diabolical plot to assassinate the top world leaders in one massive attack...
...The clock is ticking, and only Love can stop the madman.
“The Danakil Deception,” says Hopwood, “is the first of six full length adventures featuring agent, Jarvis Love. This story sees him young and at the beginning of his career. He makes mistakes and has to fight to make things right. And that’s one of the key elements to the series – Love’s a fighter. Many a time he finds his back to the wall, but he refuses to give in, fighting tooth and nail to stay in the game. I wanted to create a series that captured the color and excitement of the great spy thrillers of the ‘60s and ‘70s, but give it an adrenaline shot to the heart. Readers these days demand rapid-fire prose and that’s what I have delivered.”
Filled with hair-raising action and wild chases, The Danakil Deception is an edge-of-your-seat adventure that harks back to the great spy novels of the sixties, but infused with the high-octane punch of a modern thriller.
The HOTTEST place on Earth just got HOTTER!
The Danakil Deception features a fantastic cover and print formatting by David Foster and is now available in print on Amazon and via Pro Se’s own store at http://tinyurl.com/nym72mt for $15.00. The debut volume of the Jarvis Love series will be available in eBook format in the coming days.
