Launch of Wild World.
A public square bombing in Yemen and shipments of rockets from North America only randomly connect Canadian university researcher Arthur Crawford and Washington anti-terrorism expert Myron Klass. But coincidence is quickly overshadowed by reality when a Spaniard known as the most thoughtful of arms dealers has ambitions to devastate the US.
Strap yourself in as former Canadian Member of Parliament Dr. David C. Walker boldly weaves together their lives and stories in Wild World, the first in a series of political mystery novels that is sure to make you question what you’ve been told and what you need to know.
