Synopsis
Despite the testimony of dozens of eyewitnesses who saw a second man with Timothy McVeigh the morning of the Oklahoma City bombing––the so-called “John Doe Number Two” who became the subject of a national manhunt––McVeigh was eventually held to be the sole bomber and executed for his crime.

In Patriot’s Blood, ten of the FBI’s most credible witnesses are being murdered one by one. But when another witness is brutally murdered––and he's Dallas attorney Mike Marchetti’s new client–– Marchetti enlists the help of investigative reporter and former flame Vicki Steele, and ex-homicide detective Tom Shannon, and the three vow to find the man’s killer.

They don’t wait long to find evil; evil soon comes to them. Two attempts are made on Marchetti's life, and his ten-year-old son is threatened. They encounter a dangerous televangelist who is blackmailing Washington politicians using young boys as harlots, and learn of a plot by Middle Eastern and anti-government terrorists to attack both a Dallas hotel, where OAS representatives are meeting, and a commercial airliner inbound to DFW Airport. They alert the FBI, but when the field office can’t get a joint terrorism task force together quickly enough, and the minutes are counting down to the difference between life and death, Marchetti and Shannon become the only two people who can stop the terrorists in time.

Patriot’s Blood is a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat thriller that presents both strong evidence of conspiracy and cover-up in the Murrah bombing and the very real possibility of another McVeigh accomplice still at large. A portrait in courage of three unlikely heroes who, for reasons of guilt, anger, and an inordinate sense of duty, put their own lives on the line to see that justice is done.

Readers are reminded that Patriot's Blood is a work of fiction based in part on the Oklahoma City bombing––the second most destructive act of terrorism ever committed on U.S. soil. The characters are fictional, although there are occasional references to actual persons. The events described are based on published accounts of the bombing, although the author has taken literary license with certain aspects of the tragedy in the interests of telling a story.
