TRUTH SEEKER is a thriller about a Native American Intelligence Operative investigating the murder of three Washington Journalists, when he uncovers a Brazilian Mafia conspiracy that has serious repercussions for the United States Government. Billy Tyson "Wolf Tracker," the Father of the main character, an Apache Tribal Chief in New Mexico, met Rebecca, his Mother, on a Kibbutz in Israel, where Billy was sent to learn about the Israel farming methods. They married and had a son, who became a special intelligence agent for the U.S. Government. J. Patrick O'Connor holds dual nationality, Irish and American. He was educated in the United States and spent twenty years in Private Security and Intelligence work for Governments and International Companies, both in the United States and Europe. He has had several non-fiction books published and this is his first fiction novel.
Mumia Abu-Jamal--the most famous death-row inmate in the United States--was sentenced to death in 1982 for allegedly killing police officer Daniel Faulkner. Using the preponderance of evidence to establish that Faulkner shot Abu-Jamal as he approached him and that a passenger in Abu-Jamal's brother's car, Kenneth Freeman, then killed Faulkner, this study convincingly shows how the Philadelphia Police Department and District Attorney's Office framed Abu-Jamal for Faulkner's killing. In addition, unlike any other book or article on this subject, it describes the overarching role in the case that then-mayor Frank Rizzo and a small, radical, back-to-nature cult called MOVE played.
