Ripe with SUSPENSE, INTRIGUE and RIVETING ACTION, Nathan Goodman’s beautifully written novel preys upon our worst fears: Terrorism in our own backyard. LIKE JOHN GRISHAM'S THE FIRM, The Fourteenth Protocol introduces characters on the climb in over their head, a plot that keeps you guessing and an ending that will leave you hungry for more.
The StoryWhat would it take to infiltrate a terror cell, and eviscerate it?
Waseem Jarrah is the new, ruthless face of terror in the United States, and the CIA will stop at nothing to break him. But how far is too far? As the lines blur between good and evil, fledgling FBI agent Jana Baker thrashes in the midst of an epic battle to prove her worth, not only to fellow agents, but to herself. In this spider's web of conspiracy and intrigue, Agent Baker's struggles against evil and her own fears take her to the edge of the abyss, and the clock is ticking.
Nathan A. Goodman lives in the southeastern United States with his wife and two daughters. He has worked in the pharmaceutical industry, been a digital marketer, a soldier, a software product manager, and even sold copy machines by cold-calling businesses door to door. If asked, he'll deny ever having worked as a software product manager. His passions are rooted in all things outdoors: the health of our oceans, especially the success of the sea turtles, long walks on the beach, camping, and hiking. He has two "bucket list" items: to live on the beach, and to one day hike the 500-mile Camino trail across Spain.
The craft of writing has always been lurking just beneath the surface. In 2013, Goodman began the formation of what would later become The Fourteenth Protocol. When published, it quickly became a bestselling terrorist thriller.
He is presently writing more works for the Jana Baker FBI series which focuses on a fledgling agent trying to prove herself in a federal agency run by men, and over-run by terrorists. We first find Jana trailing a low-priority subject when she happens to stumble across the one clue that breaks the case wide open. By the time it's over, she'll earn the respect of her fellow agents, but may pay the ultimate price.
In the novel, now being developed into a series, Nathan focused on crafting a believable strong female lead heroine that his young daughters could look to as a role model. The life of Special Agent Jana Baker spills across the pages and takes on a life of its own. Jana is a testament to the struggle of women everywhere who fight to be treated equally with men.
