The Sun in the Eastern Sky
After making a killing in the stock market, Mike Norris began gathering intelligence for a secret society of the very wealthy. Now working directly for the society's leader, he again teams up with Xray, a top-secret counterintelligence team known only to a few, and their mission won't be easy. Getting one Chinese defector out of Communist China is difficult enough, but extracting several defectors and their state secrets requires the unique skills of Mike and his Xray colleagues. The heavy price they pay to accomplish their mission forces them into hiding, and Mike's time of contemplation leads him to believe it's no accident his team had problems in China.
Mike then teams up with Lt. Commander Ron Cull, a Navy SEAL tasked with putting Xray back together. Acting on a tip from former Mossad operative Josh Weisman, this latest assignment will require Mike to use all of his cunning and analytical savvy to solve the mystery of who tried to take his team down. All may not be what it seems as agents switch their allegiance-or have they? The Sun in the Eastern Sky takes readers on a fast-paced ride featuring the wealthy and powerful and those who work to protect all that the country holds dear.
John McCord wrote short stories and was published in North Atlantic Review after leaving a career of more than twenty years in computer and information technologies. With nearly ten years experience in Navy systems, John found it a natural fit in his novels to give protagonist Mike Norris a strong connection to Xray-a top-secret Navy entity John first introduced in Sneak Attack, which serves as a prequel to The Sun in the Eastern Sky, and also stars Mike Norris. John and his wife live in South Carolina.
