Billy discovers that his father might be a traitor, that he was deployed to safeguard the United States from a cyberattack on its military networks. After that mission, his father disappeared along with the Chinese technology he was ordered to steal–a weapon powerful enough to sabotage the digital infrastructure of the modern age and force the human population into collapse.
The story follows all three members of the Erikson family:
After Billy’s estranged father shows up at his high school, along with a pair of hostile gunmen, Billy hurries home to find the kitchen on fire–his mother missing. Forced into a split-second decision, he runs from the approaching sheriff in an attempt to find his mom.
Her worry for Billy the only concern on her mind, Rachel outwits her captors. Jack left them ten years ago. He had no right to bring her son into this.
Jack’s entire past is on a collision course with the present. Sophisticated operators from three nations are hunting him. Jack’s disillusionment with Washington, his concerns about the fraying fabric of global stability–it all comes down to a single decision: he must choose between the mission and his family.
PATRIARCH RUN is a thoughtful and character-driven, coming-of-age story. Against a backdrop of suspense, the novel explores the archetypal themes of fatherhood, rites of passage and self-acceptance.
