NSNC member and award-winning writer, Bill Nash, has just announced the release of his first novel, Fog Delay. The thriller is set at San Francisco International Airport where a disgruntled explosives expert has vowed revenge against the airport.
“The book’s villain, James Donato, makes his living imploding buildings for demolition companies. The problem is, when something upsets him, he takes his work home,” said Nash. “After placing a bomb in a local bank, his clean getaway is complicated by a fog delay at the airport. Keeping to his own peculiar code of justice, he sets out to punish the airport the only way he knows – explosively!”
In Fog Delay, the head of security at SFO, Victoria Kilpatrick, and a veteran firefighter, Mark Saxon, face the most dangerous challenge of their careers as they try to stop Donato. The FBI, ATF and others think they know how to catch Donato, but Kilpatrick and Saxon have a different theory. They risk their lives and careers to apprehend Donato before he can destroy the airport.
