The Ericksen Connection is an espionage thriller about betrayal, PTSD, corruption, conspiracy, and terrorism. Mark Ericksen, the former Navy SEAL Team-6 lieutenant and successful Oregon businessman, was all about duty, honor, and country. He resigns his commission in 2002, and over the next several years works for three defense contractors, maintaining his top secret security clearance while hiding his PTSD.
In 2009, the CIA receives actionable intelligence about a wealthy Saudi terrorist mastermind who needs the EyeD4 Systems’ biometrics encryption communications system to coordinate his sleeper cell operatives in launching a nuclear attack on American cities. The CIA director meets with Ericksen, who is an executive at EyeD4 Systems.
When America urgently needs his services again, the CIA tasks him for Operation Avenging Eagles to sabotage the horrific plot. Can Ericksen avoid discovery and thwart the nuclear attack before a network of sleeper cell terrorists achieves their evil plans?
