Overview

It is a murder/mystery novel.

Nicholas Blick, a highly skilled twenty-year-old volleyball player, was "just snooping around" when he came across the corpse of a person who had been brutally murdered. The police have arrested another young volleyball player but Nick, thinking the wrong person has been locked up, begins his own investigation into the matter. In working on the case, the young athlete meets FBI Special Agent Tom Davis and eventually joins with the agent in not only investigating the murder but also in trying to find the person attempting to steal plans for the U.S. Navy's new missile guidance system, one called ArrowStar.

At the center of the espionage plot is globe-hopping Chen Xong Wu, a man of tremendous wealth, who is working behind the scenes to help bring about a shift in the power structure of the Chinese Communist party and, in doing so, attain for himself more influence as well as more wealth. As the story unfolds, it is Nick who, unwittingly, becomes the key person in bringing both of these cases ​​together. Eventually, young Blick and Special Agent Davis find themselves working together in a race against the clock. Their goal: to find the murderer as well as uncover the identity of the espionage agent's "mole" before the Navy's plans end up in the wrong hands.

Meet the Author

DAN ROBERTS has always loved reading. His major interests have been theology, history and fiction. After reading the Hardy Boys series at a very young age Dan got hooked on mysteries, a genre he prefers to the present day. Some of Dan's favorite authors include John Grisham, Ken Follett, Jack Higgins and Frederick Forsyth. It is in that style that Dan has now entered the field with his own book.

Although Dan's work life has been in the field of healthcare—working in hospitals, rehab centers and, finally, in his own private practice of muscle therapy—he has actively pursued his interest in writing over the years. Beyond the joy and satisfaction of doing it, encouragement to continue his writing came as Dan was successful in getting some of his poems, essays and short stories published. Recently, upon entering retirement, Dan decided to take the leap into writing something longer: a novel. The result is the publication of his first book—Naked Ambition.

Dan lives in Pennsylvania.
