The Valhalla Testament

Imprisoned in Nicaragua, an NFL star must escape to the United States to warn the government of an impending terrorist attack—before the sinister forces of the international intelligence community silence him forever

Jamie Skylar is not a political man. His life has always been about football, and that single-minded dedication was justified when, after he finished setting school rushing records at Brown, the New York Giants gave him a lucrative contract to join their crew of bruisers. But more important to him than football is his sister, and she needs him now.
 
An American undercover operative masquerading as a journalist in Central America, Beth has just learned of the Nicaraguan army’s plans for an attack inside the United States, codenamed Operation Thunder Clap. She invites her brother to visit her, intending to have him smuggle out the government’s sinister plans. But when she is murdered and Jamie is imprisoned, the running back will need all his strength to escape and warn the United States.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Jon Land including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
