About the author:
With his bestselling debut political thriller, THE WATCHMAN of EPHRAIM, Gerard de Marigny has burst upon the literary world stage with vigor and poise! Founding JarRyJorNo Publishing in January 2011, de Marigny dons many hats, that of publisher, graphic designer, marketer, as well as author. The result, so far, has been a sparkling debut novel that became a #1 Amazon Bestselling Geopolitical Thriller!
On July 4th, de Marigny embarked on his 75-day PATRIOT Blog Tour making over 50 appearances on book reviewers sites located all over the world, garnering stellar reviews and raves along the way.
In July, de Marigny also sat down for an up-close and personal interview with Philip Norbert of Kingmaker Productions. Shot by famed Cinematographer Jay Nemeth of Flightline Films, the Q&A session has garnered over 5,000 viewers on YouTube.
Before writing fiction, de Marigny was the lead guitarist for 80's rock band, AMERICADE. Though the last lineup of the band broke up in 1995, de Marigny was approached by Aaron McCaslin, President of Retrospect Records, a label dedicated to promoting heavy rock bands from the 80's. A lifelong fan himself, McCaslin offered de Marigny a record contract. In return, de Marigny supplied Retrospect Records with every recording, whether previously released or not, in his possession. The result has become a remarkable 70-song, 4-CD boxed set branded, AMERICADENCE: 1980 ~ 1995. Says de Marigny, "It's an amazing feat what Aaron pulled off. He literary brought back to life just about the entire musical catalog of AMERICADE ... and the timing couldn't be better!" The boxed set will include a discount coupon for signed paper or eBook editions of both books in the CRIS DE NIRO series.
November 2011 brought BOOK II of de Marigny's CRIS DE NIRO series, SIGNS of WAR and the author is already at work writing BOOK III, RISE to the CALL due out in spring 2012.
The Watchman of Ephraim
Gerard de Marigny
Cris De Niro worked his way up to the top of the hedge fund world. Yet, all of his money couldn't protect him from losing his wife on 9/11. 10 years passed since the tragedy. De Niro and his sons relocated to a sprawling ranch near Las Vegas. Turning to his faith to overcome his anguish, De Niro now lives for a higher purpose. From a biblical passage, he reads about the "Watchman of Ephraim," a defender who kept watch over the land. De Niro decides to acquire a lackluster counter-terrorism agency in order to transform it into a modern-day version of The Watchman for the United States but there's not a moment to lose.
Aref Sami Zamani is planning a terrorist attack on American soil - codenamed "Antioch," a plot to detonate a nuke over the city of Las Vegas. The Watchman uncovers a connection between Zamani and a Mexican drug cartel but their agent goes missing before they can learn more. That's because Zamani has a spy working for The Watchman. Strange events start to unfold near the Nogales border crossing. References are discovered to something the Mexicans are calling "Noche Del Espantada" ...Fright Night," but can it mean something else?
September 11, 2011 and the sun hasn't risen yet in Las Vegas or Nogales. Antioch is in motion! At the border, Noche Del Espantada has begun and there are intruders at De Niro's ranch. De Niro has to protect his sons and someone new in his life, Dr. Moriah Stevens. She too, lost her spouse on 9/11. Moriah finds herself in love with De Niro but his devotion to his wife is proving too powerful for him, even after 10 years. It's the 10th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil and unless De Niro and his new team are successful, the day will be known as "The 2nd 9/11."
