About the Author
Among the myriad of published writings I have created throughout the years in commercial advertising, I have also served as an Assistant Editor of a nationally published magazine, as well as a founding member of an acting and screenwriting group. I became interested in creative, and screenwriting, some years ago as a productive outlet. I have since endeavored to write outside of my comfort zone to keep my creativity fresh. This decision was to begin a long journey into my own mind and abilities. After penning an original international espionage novel, Imminent Threat, I have begun to work on the sequel to this fast moving thriller. With so many talented and influential people who have offered assistance on Imminent Threat, the overwhelmingly positive feedback has been both humbling and encouraging. I hope you will enjoy the easy-to-read, fast-paced style and attention to detail I strive for within all my writings.

So begins this tale of sea-to-stormy-sea international intrigue, much of it requiring helicopter rides straight from hell. Mitch Hughes -- an old friend of Daniel's father and the current director of the CIA -- is drafting Daniel to be his personal "eyes and ears" on a DARPA funded project called Deep Sky, currently in progress on an island off the Alaskan coast. There is, of course, no saying "no." The skeptical young scientist is provided with protection (Officer Erica Morillo) and transportation (a silver Mercedes SL500). The Mercedes has several bullet holes in it before the first evening is out; Officer Morillo manages to catch a few as well in the course of the truly non-stop action.
Not surprisingly, Spann is adapting "Imminent Threat" to a screenplay. The story's strengths -- the attractive young protagonists; the constant fleeing from danger; the certainty of betrayal; the uncertainty of the identity of the traitor; the secret scientific project; the beautiful locales (from the gentle harmony of the Florida Keys to the wild cacophony of Arctic seas) -- should make for a satisfying movie experience. "Imminent Threat" has both the pace and plausibility one looks for in genre thrillers, plus an added hook -- there is a sequel coming.
Bookreview.com rates this book Very Good and looks forward to Daniel Bowman's next adventure. Obviously, there are no slow days in the life of a geophysicist.
It would be very interesting to see this book turned into a feature film. It would likely do extremely well at the box office.
Mr Spann, you absolutley must write the sequel.
