“The Attack”
Book signing and reading with author, Bob Doerr


The Attack is an international thriller that begins when a terrorist team sets off four explosive devices in an international airport close to New York City.  The leader of the terrorists, Ahmad Khalin, survives the attack and plans to attack a second U.S. airport within the month.  As Khalin makes his escape from the New York area he is involved in a shooting in Connecticut. Clint Smith, a U.S. government agent assigned to an ultra-secret agency, is at a restaurant across the street when the shooting occurs. He responds to the scene to see if he can help, but Khalin is gone. On a hunch, Teresa Deer, Smith’s boss, sends Smith after Khalin. Smith’s pursuit takes him to Bar Harbor, Maine; Wiesbaden, Germany; the Costa Brava, Spain; Northern Scotland; Lake of the Woods, Ontario, Canada; and finally into Saskatchewan, Canada, where the final confrontation takes place.  Throughout the pursuit, a number of interesting characters add to the subplots and try to survive their involvement in the chase.

I grew up in a military family, graduated from the Air Force Academy, and then had a twenty eight year career in the Air Force.  It was a life style that had me moving every three or four years, but also one that exposed me to the people and cultures of numerous countries in Asia, Europe, and to most of these United States. 

In the Air Force, I specialized in criminal investigations and counterintelligence gaining significant insight to the worlds of crime, espionage and terrorism. My field of work brought me into close contact and coordination with the investigative and security agencies of many different countries and with the FBI and CIA. This background has helped me develop the fictional plots and characters in my books. 
In addition to my degree from the Academy, I also have a Masters in International Relations from Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska. I am a full time author now, with five mystery/thrillers and a middle grade fantasy already published. I've also co-authored a mystery with three other authors titled Paragraphs: Mysteries of the Golden Booby. 
I live in Garden Ridge, Texas, with my wife of 40 years, and an ornery cat named Cinco.

This event is free and open to the public.
