When a series of jihad-inspired “lone wolf” style attacks hits Los Angeles, tracking down the seemingly unconnected terror cells appears impossible. However, recently returned from a suspension, Jack Miller rallies his Terror Incident Emergency Response Unit – TIER Unit 3-1 – and takes over from an overstretched LAPD.

But as Jack’s elite squad battles to hunt the people responsible, a man of great intelligence - driven by a hatred not even he can control - prepares his soldiers for war.

Author Q & A

Q: What’s the conceit here? Why five books?

A: The idea is to structure the adventure like a TV series. Five books laid out in which each “episode” sees a different objective within a bigger whole. Inspired by shows like Quantico, 24, Homeland.

Q: So it’s not like a series of cliffhangers?

A: Not like a guy with a gun to his head or falling out of a helicopter, then “duh-duh-duuuuh!” Fade to black. No. The days are complete, but the ultimate goal in the story – to catch the terrorist mastermind – is not resolved until the fifth and final book.

Q: And they’re all shorter than most novels?

A: Each day is about half the length of a regular novel, although many authors are writing shorter works these days. When a story doesn’t need to be 100,000 words, why not write it in 30-40,000? You see this with James Patterson and his “Bookshots” range, which are shorter, incredibly fast-paced novellas. That’s the kind of pace and tone I’m aiming for with the TIER Unit books.

Q: The story goes big. Do some say too big?

A: Early readers have suggested it goes quite bananas. It’s elevated reality, not a gritty treatise on the War on Terror. I even invent certain facilities such as those used by the FBI or the Air Force. If you want reality, there are plenty of books for that; if you want entertainment, try the TIER Unit series.
