The Ericksen Connection is a spy/action/thriller about betrayal, corruption, conspiracy, murder, and terrorism. Mark Ericksen, the former Navy SEAL Team Six platoon leader and successful businessman, was all about duty, honor, and country. After the end of his tour with an elite tier-one team from the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC)in Afghanistan, the Silver Star Medal recipient resigns his commission on May 10, 2002, enters civilian life, and over the next seven years works for three defense contractors, maintaining a top secret security clearance while concealing his PTSD. In 2009, The CIA receives actionable intel about a wealthy Saudi businessman planning to attack two American cities with enriched nuclear suitcase bombs, as well as shipping an eight-megaton nuclear warhead loaded on a container ship bound for the Port of Los Angeles. The terrorist mastermind needs to acquire several classified biometrics encrypted communications security systems using the palm-vein scanning technology from EyeD4 Systems, a Wilsonville, Oregon company, in order to maintain communication with his sleeper cell operatives in the United States. CIA Director Bill Sullivan meets with Ericksen, the executive vice-president of EyeD4 Systems and tasks him for Operation Avenging Eagles, to sabotage the terrorist mastermind’s horrific plans. Can Ericksen avoid discovery and thwart the nuclear plots before a network of sleeper cell terrorist operatives achieve their evil goals?
