New Thriller Novel Exposes America’s Soft Underbelly – Container Ship Ports


New York publisher Library Tales Publishing announces the release of Catch a Falling Knife by Frank Foster. The book will be launched on April 21st, 2012 in bookstores everywhere.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(LTP Press - April 16th, 2012) – Of the eight million containers with two billion tons of freight shipped to the United States each year, only three per cent are currently screened for nuclear or dirty bombs, WMD, or other types of explosives.  Increasing the screening efforts would cripple the global supply chain, likely causing a worldwide economic depression. Frank Foster’s newest thriller, Catch a Falling Knife, exposes America’s soft underbelly – its container ship ports.The book is now available on Amazon and retailers everywhere. The author is holding a book signing event on Saturday, April 21st at Books-A-Million in Lakeland, FL.

The thriller is a departure from Frank’s “Boca” series featuring Lynn Woo. “It’s my third book, and I think all readers will agree, with this book—the stakes are high,” Frank says.  “It may remind some people of Ken Follett’s famous Eye of the Needle, because our hero and the bad guy are identified early on, and they’re on a collision course.” The format follows Foster’s usual short chapter, fast-paced action, and the tension builds throughout.  One early reader said reading the book felt more like watching a movie.
