Overview

THE PERMIT is a fast-moving techno-thriller novel based on the actual event of the author's eldest son being murdered by a new class of domestic terrorist: Rogue or outlaw police officers, who kill innocents, then cover up their crimes. In THE PERMIT, three rogue Las Vegas cops gun down a covert federal agent and immediately become high-priority targets of the dead agent's comrades: A team of "black ops" assassins. Called Checkmate, the secret team tracks down and eliminates domestic terrorists, employing unique high-tech weapons to instill fear, doubt and division among sleeper cells. Because they are slaughtering thousands of American citizens, outlaw cops are designated THE most dangerous domestic terrorist threat facing Americans today. Consequently, Checkmate is charged with neutralizing killer-cops, but has very little time to complete its mission. If Checkmate fails, the United States will erupt in armed revolt....and may not survive.
