About the author:
Andrew M. Williams
b. 1958, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Influenced at an early age by Dr Seuss and the masterpieces of Goscinny and Uderzo, Williams alleviated boredom and amused classmates through high-school by writing, and drawing caricatures of teachers, students and anyone else he could outrun. After six enormously satisfying years in university, he surprised everyone by graduating in 1983 with a BSc in Kinesiology.
Writing took a back seat for the next dozen years, as he opted for the action and adventure of the Royal Canadian Navy. Creativity was limited to the occasional farewell roast of senior naval officers--a valuable experience in the art of skewering a subject diplomatically, thus retaining some prospect of career advancement.
After the Navy he obtained an MBA, worked as a cartoonist, became a stockbroker (8 years--great clients), and then realized a long-lost ambition of becoming a writer.
Favorite pastime: Exploring the universe.
Favorite places: Australia & The Bahamas.
Background: Varied, but includes the military, financial, high-technology, cartooning, and writing.
The Carlyle Deception is his first full-length novel.
A number of other stories are in the works, including the sequel to The Carlyle Deception.
The Carlyle Deception
Andrew M. Williams
"A taut, well-plotted thriller with a compelling lead character."
KIRKUS Reviews, Aug 2013
Ever beat an opponent at their own game? Feels good, doesn't it.
Lambert Greene must transform himself from a dedicated family man into a cunning chameleon, willing to risk everything for his ultimate goal. He's in over his head, and he knows it--but he can't turn back.
Lambert adapts and survives on adrenaline-driven desperation, instinct, and the judicious use of brute force as he confronts the worst of civilization--the Taliban, opium smugglers, weapons merchants, corrupt locals and foreigners, and an insidious new, expanding regional threat. In his new line of work, no government will protect him.
He'll learn that more than money, trust is the most valuable currency.
