About the Author
Alex Blackwell is a frequent author, writing about sailing technology and sailing adventures, contributing to several magazines, websites and e-zines. He has enjoyed a professional career as copywriter, marketer and speaker. Born in Chicago, Alex and his family moved to Clew Bay, Ireland when he was 14. Because of his mother’s German heritage, Alex went to school in Germany, where he earned a Master of Science degree in Marine Biology. After starting an oyster hatchery in Ireland, he went to America for a six-month research project. As many people do, he stayed for 20 years. There he was a partner in a marketing support services firm and commercial printing company which included a book printing division. Since then Alex and his wife Daria have been sailing far and wide, exploring distant shores, but always returning to their home in Ireland. Alex’s second novel of the Butterfly Effect series, The Brotherhood; Acquisition of Power, is strictly fiction. Like the first book, The Butterfly Effect; It Started on 9/11, it is woven out of the fabric of historical events, his personal experience, and his fertile imagination.

Unbeknownst to the plotters, young Peter Blessingham a computer expert and student living in Dublin had hacked into the NASA computer system and the first faint clues of the plot are revealed. Peter is tracked by the American security forces represented by an old family friend Jack O' D anand agrees to co-operate.
The chase is on as a team is assembled by Wolfgang Bayer to topple the USA and another team is assigned to prevent it. The description and use of technology is impressive and the sense of timing finely tuned throughout. Take this book to a quiet spot and read in one sitting.
Readers may have a challenge in the early part of the book as the story jumps between the past and the present but, as the momentum of the plot takes hold, they'll find it worth the effort. An incredible blend of ultra-detailed fact and creative fiction.
