3/19/18 - 9:30am PST, author John Nuckel, joinedJaneane to talk about his new book, Drive - a cross between a thriller, historical fiction, and white collar crime.

LISTEN to today's featured guest, John Nuckel!

John will talk about his days in Wall Street (he always says he heard enough stories there to fill dozens of books), or his experience working his way up from welfare, or the research he did for Drive (it was a lot!). Plus he used to host his own radio program, so he’s a natural on air.

In this crime thriller, history and current events unite through a New York secret society, established in the late 1800s by the country’s elite. The purpose of The Volunteers is to intercede when typical rules of justice cannot. NYPD officer Annie Falcone becomes the latest key component in the ongoing work of The Volunteers.

Et Omnia Recta—to make things right.

In the late 1800s, a secret society is formed by a captain from Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders with the support of the nation’s leading industrialists and bankers. Over a century later, the tradition continues, in the same saloons and boardrooms of New York City, where it all began.

In this crime thriller, where history and current events unite, Woodbury Kane, Jacob Riis, and Roosevelt himself fight the tyranny of Tammany Hall in the first mission of the Volunteers during the turn of the last century.

In today’s New York, the descendants of the Volunteers recruit Annie Falcone, a New York police officer, who takes the oath: Et Omnia Recta. She is to provide protection to one man, America’s top technological mind, from his longtime adversary, Sheng, China’s most brutal hacker.

Annie is unaware that she’s merely a decoy to draw Sheng out for the hit squad that was sent ahead of her. Her instincts alone will be the force behind the success or failure of the mission.

Like so many other Volunteers before her, Annie’s survival depends upon her courage, her skill, and her DRIVE.
