Greenwich, CT, June 9, 2010 - Jeffrey Stephens has a vast knowledge of terrorism and covert operations—that is patently obvious from his new novel, Targets of Deception (Variance Publishing), that features an intricate plot based on the true life story of an agent gone bad who was hunted by agencies around the world. Drawing rave reviews from eminent writers, such as Steve Berry, Vince Flynn and Robert Tanenbaum, Stephens has been touted an ‘author to watch.’

Jordan Sandor had resigned from active service with the CIA before the tragedy of 9/11. He reluctantly gets pulled back into the game after a series of alarming events leave him no choice. He embarks on a search that takes him halfway across the world; beginning in New York, leads to Florida, on to Paris, and ultimately to the sleepy town of Portofino on the Italian Riviera - to uncover a deadly al-Qaeda plot to launch nerve gas attacks on the world! Never sure who he can trust but knowing that the lives of millions are at stake, he relies on his gut instincts and trained skills to help him track down the rogue agent behind the conspiracy – who turns out to be none other than his old mentor!

Because of men like his lead protagonist, Jeffrey Stephens’ donates substantial amounts of his book’s royalties to Special Operations Warriors Foundation, an organization that provides assistance to surviving children of fallen Special Ops personnel.
