From the author of The Potsdam Bluff and Tailspin comes a new techno-thriller set in the near future and featuring man-of-action Tom Sweeney. When the secret agent is laid off from his high-level intelligence job due to peace-time Department of Defense budget cuts, he takes the dismissal in stride, planning to enjoy a few months off as a swinging bachelor. But when an old CIA running mate is found murdered in the bathroom of Sweeney’s house, leaving behind a cryptic message, Sweeney finds that he is a moving target for mysterious killers. Gradually, he discovers himself to be at the center of a complex international plot involving the cocaine industry, a swarm of vicious German neo-Nazis, and high-ranking US officials, including perhaps even Sweeney’s old boss, the President himself. Can one hero take on all of these enemies? Watch him try.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Read brilliantly by Tom Parker in this very entertaining production…Sweeney digs into a power-grabbing situation involving drugs that is so diabolical that it will leave you limp.” Dick Richmond, St. Louis Post Dispatch
“Parker’s convincing reading makes Sweeny’s Run highly engrossing.” Booklist
“There’s a bit of ’40s ‘Why you…I oughtta’ flavor, plus a spunky aviatrix—but everything else is quite up-to-date in this brisk, cynical thriller.” Kirkus Reviews
