FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
When The Saints Go Marching In: Have Fun While All Hell Breaks Loose
Houston, TX, May 24, 2013 –When the Saints Go Marching In (Insomniac Press) is the first book in the highly anticipated new series by author Anthony Bidulka. The fast paced thriller features a dynamic and original protagonist.
Readers will thrill to the quick action and quicker thinking demanded of Adam Saint, a Canadian Disaster Recovery Agent. A man-of-the-world adventurer, Saint lives a fast-paced, often dangerous, always exciting life. When a passenger train crashes in Detroit, terrorists blow up a public building in Belfast, a cyclone ravages Bangladesh, or Angola descends into civil war, if Canadians are there, so is the CDRA. And so is Adam Saint.
In When The Saints Go Marching In, you meet a character of satisfying depth and humanity. He’s a man whose best friend is killed. His wife is leaving him. His son hates him. Then comes the bad news. When a Sukhoi Superjet carrying a Very Important Person plunges from the sky over subarctic Russia, a Canadian Disaster Recovery Agent inspecting the crash site is murdered. CDRA sends in their best to investigate.
Saint’s Russian investigation is derailed when he receives devastating personal news. Suddenly, the penultimate man of action is thrown into emotional and physical turmoil that tests his moral fortitude. Thrust into a fight for his life, Saint undertakes a thrilling journey of danger and deceit from the bucolic prairies of Saskatchewan and high rise hijinks of corporate Toronto, through London’s outer boroughs, to steamy Southeast Asia and Sin City itself, Las Vegas.
