The Ericksen Connection is an Espionage Thriller about betrayal, PTSD, corruption, conspiracy and terrorism. Mark Ericksen, the former Navy SEAL Team Six operator and successful Oregon businessman was all about duty, honor, and country. He resigns his commission in 2002, and over the next several years works for three defense contractors, maintaining his top secret security clearance while hiding his PTSD.
In 2009, the CIA receives actionable intelligence about a wealthy Saudi terrorist mastermind who needs the EyeD4 Systems’ biometrics encryption communication system to coordinate his sleeper cell operatives in launching a horrific nuclear attack on American cities. The CIA director meets with Ericksen, EyeD4 Systems’ executive vice-president at Langley.
When America urgently needs his services again, the CIA tasks him for Operation Avenging Eagles to sabotage the plot. Can Ericksen avoid discovery and thwart the nuclear attack before a network of sleeper cell terrorists achieves their evil plans?
