Wes DeMott's international bestseller, The Fund, is a thrilling read that's been a favorite among readers for years, but the reason it will always sell well is its finely crafted ending. DeMott has famously said, "I'll tell you right now that you won't guess who the bad guy is in this story, but when you get to the end you'll think back through the novel and want to hit your head because every clue pointed directly to them."

That's almost impossible to pull off, but DeMott did it so well in The Fund that Publisher Weekly said: Near the novel's end, the story shifts gears with unexpected plot twists and a major, clever character shift, opening up many intriguing and fresh new perspectives...ending with a flourish as a stylized, turn-on-a-dime crime story where the lines between love, murder and espionage are deftly blurred.

The Fund: While trying to save his contract for a tactical weapons system, aerospace engineer Peter Jamison uncovers a crime of corruption, power and violence that draws him into a deadly game he cannot win but still chooses to fight - any way he can and at whatever cost. This thriller was an international best-seller and IPPY Gold Medal Award Recipient for Best Thriller/Mystery. It has been translated into several languages and became very popular in Eastern Europe.

How deep does the government conspiracy go? Who's in charge and how many more will die? Aerospace engineer Peter Jamison is determined to find out.

About the Author

Wes DeMott was born in Oregon in 1952, but moved soon afterward to Guam. His father, a Navy man who later became a defense contractor, moved the family frequently, instilling in Wes a love of travel and new places. He calls both Virginia and Florida home, although Panama is only a notch away from being added to that list.

An accomplished surfer, diver, and deep-sea fisherman, Wes shows his love of the ocean in many of his books, with boats and adventures-at-sea popping up frequently. A long-distance cruiser with thousands of nautical miles on his own vessels, it was not surprising that Wes related the experience of being rescued off Cuba in 2011 to a short scene he'd written in a book.

Over the past dozen years Wes has garnered international acclaim for his novels about prisoners of war, the FBI, military assassins, and spies. In Loving Zelda he wrote about hope and loss and the chance to change our lives if we're fearless enough to try.

Tortuga Gold reflects a fun new chapter in Wes's own life as he's joined in his adventures by his beautiful Belgian wife, Sabine, a human rights/refugee lawyer who spent seven of her fifteen years with the United Nations living in Africa, including full-time residency in the war zones of Rwanda, Burundi, and the Congo during their bloody genocides.

Other books by Wes DeMott: The Typhoon Sanction, Walking K, Heat Sync, Loving Zelda, and Tortuga Gold. All books available in e-book format and in print.
