The Department of Homeland Security was formed in 2002 in response to the growing terrorist threat after the World Trade Center bombings. The department is an umbrella for 22 other agencies which were pulled into the new department. A cabinet position was established and given far-reaching powers, one of which was to form super-secret agencies within the agency. Jacob Jake Dees and Roland Roadie T. Blue work for one such unnamed agency. In this first installment of eight of the mystery-action novel, Turn, Turn, Turn, the pair is on the trail of an unidentified group of terrorists looking to obtain explosives. For what? Neither the Agency, nor the two agents know yet. They don’t even know who the terrorists are. They just know the terrorists must be stopped before their plan comes to fruition.
In Volume 1 of Turn, Turn, Turn, Jake and Roadie go on what should be a routine mission. They have been carrying on surveillance of a suspected illegal explosives business. On the day they go to make arrests, the simple mission goes wildly awry, but they end up getting their man….or did they?
This first novel, Turn, Turn, Turn, is the first from fictional author, Trent Cooper. Cooper, a character in the as-of-yet unpublished series of kozy mystery novels, is a pen name of Central Florida writer, De Miller. Like Miller, who is a former newspaper reporter and editor, Trent Cooper is also a former newspaperman. In Miller’s novels, Cooper is headquartered in Mount Dora, Florida, having come to the area to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city of Kansas City and also to escape the snow. (Miller is also from Kansas City, now living in Mount Dora, and he also does not like snow. ) Cooper is introduced in Miller’s first book in his series of kozy mysteries, entitled Murder in Mount Dora. While solving crimes, helping friends and getting to know his new girlfriend, Cooper is also working on his first Great American Novel.
