Overview

Paul Francesco is an independent, successful single man in his late thirties who has everything in the world going for him: financial stability with the real possibility of obtaining significant wealth, a dedicated and loyal group of family and friends, and a challenging, exciting, and rewarding career. Except Paul has one problem: he lives with a deep, dark secret that torments him: he is a ghost living in purgatory despite his relative success.

Unknown to Paul, there is an evil plan to extort his hard-earned assets from him and in the process deny him the one thing that is more important to him than anything else in the world: to be an active part of his son Alex’s life. Unfortunately, his innocent and trusting seven-year-old son is at the center of this vicious and diabolical plot directed at him.

When things go from bad to worse to unbelievably insane – when judges choose not to uphold the laws of their nation, when law enforcement turns a blind eye, and when one government after another’s hands are tied due to bureaucratic issues of jurisdiction or non-participation of the international treaty on child abduction, the only thing that could prevent Alex from becoming another sad and sorry statistic on a report that nobody wants to read or think about is his father’s vow to never abandon him no matter what. As a result, Paul is forced to become a hunter, chasing the predators who have taken his son to the other side of the world. With the situation becoming more and more desperate, he is forced to find other resources to help him. As the hunt moves across international borders, he gathers together an extraordinary group of individuals, each with their own powerful stories, to help him. The story moves from The United States and Canada, to the island nations of Oceania, and culminates in the horrifying black-markets of Asia.

Chasing The Cyclone by Peter Thomas Senese is a first-hand account of the growing epidemic of international parental child abduction, and the extreme difficulties all parents whose child has been abducted must face in order to protect the welfare of their victimized child or children. This story makes clear what needs to be done in The United States and throughout the world in order to protect children from being abducted and taken across international borders.

Editorial Reviews

New York Journal of Books
Chasing the Cyclone is a well-written thriller. Senese shares myriad emotions by writing in the first-person as he weaves through the action in this suspense-filled story. This novel might also be considered a treatise on international child abduction ... above all else, this is a love story. Filled with a plethora of powerful characters, puzzling predicaments, and dead ends, the story moves quickly. Cyclone will leave you informed and satisfied. You will be reluctant to put it down.
The Examiner
Peter Thomas Senese is a gifted storyteller who takes readers on a heart pounding journey around the globe through the eyes of Paul Francesco, a father whose 7-year old son is abducted by his mother. The story is filled with twists and turns that will leave readers scratching their heads, seething in anger, and hugging their children a little tighter . . . I highly recommend Chasing the Cyclone as a must-read. It may very well change the way you look at life and child custody ...
