Back Cover Text
This is a novel intended to be read in the traditional manner and also serve aa a predecessor to a screen play. The subject matter is sequenced to represent the scenes as they would appear in historical sequence. However, the novel is written to be read as a conventional book.
This novel, as in the previous twelve stories in the series involving Matt and the General, with the assistance of their associates and friends, Matt and the General combine their efforts to solve important problems that involve the safety of the United States, along with problems in the domestic arena. In this instance. the book is set in the beautiful area of middle New Jersey, the United States in general, and in several foreign countries.
As in the previous novels, Matt Miller, who has a PhD degree from a prestigious university, and uses mathematical thinking and solid logic, along with the organizational ability of General Les Miller, his grandfather, to solve several major problems, recognized by the President and the Intelligence Director of the United States, as well as two local problems that require the wisdom of the team. The subject matter is supplanted with a historical sequence that described the origin of the General and other team members.
In this set of episodes, the action includes a governmental kidnapping, the problems of the military situation with China, the General, and two interesting local situations. Throughout, the activity uses the knowledge of General Mark Clark, the President, and three important women including Ashley, who is Matt’s wife, Anna, who is the General’s wife, and Ann, who is General Clark’s wife.
The scene changes rapidly, but always in the scope of no violence, no sex, and no bad language. It is accessible to readers of all ages. The book typifies the conventional “beach” read in that the subject matter can be read as five separate stories.
This is the fourteenth book in the Matt and the General series. The characters assume their dynamic personalities as in previous tales.
A comment from the author is in order. It was a distinct pleasure to write about Matt, Ashley, Anna, the General, and the Sir Charles Bunday. They are foremost in my imagination. The doctors and medical terminology are just imagined, and anything medical is just made up from reading the Internet. Any reference to doctor’s conventions and procedures are imagined.
