Jackson Guild’s a Congressional heavyweight who trips over an ugly secret. Something that can’t be leaked. Panic would ensue. Stock exchanges would crash. Banks fail. Looting and shootouts would set the whole nation on fire. Why? Because Guild’s uncovered a nuclear weapon’s auction, a bidding war. But in his drive to expose the plotters, his cover’s blown. Now, he’s the man in the crosshairs. Chased by arms dealers and lured by the CIA, he becomes a tool. The agency uses him like bait to chum the waters for the sharks holding the ultimate weapon. With the days ticking down to the destruction of an American city, Jackson Guild— victim of war, drunk, womanizer, and liar—looks a lot more like a bullseye than a hero.

Jeff Shear writes the alt-espionage series The Jackson Guild Books, which tells the story of a Congressional aide turned spy in a demi-dystopian era. Guild—pronounced like wild—survived a nuclear attack that decapitated the government. He lives in an alternate future beginning in an alternate past, September 2009. The view forward sees nuclear war as inevitable. Russia’s fingerprints are all over the devastating atomic strike on Washington. Moscow’s spy center, the Lubyanka, marches to the orders of the grand oligarchs basking on the sands of their crypto-rich fiefdoms, groomed by Vladimir Putin.
This is an explosive and prescient series, the story of one man seeking redemption in a world desperate for justice. As this undercover war rages, the final battle approaches, a struggle to recapture a fourth generation nuclear device, a weapon that will finally make atomic war possible.
Shear comes well armed for the Guild job. He’s served as a Fellow at The Center for Public Integrity in Washington, DC. and walked the halls of Congress as a staff correspondent for National Journal. He was hard-passed to the White House and credentialed at Treasury. His first book was an investigation into a weapons deal between the US and Japan (FSX), published by Doubleday. Entitled The Keys to the Kingdom. The title is available in eBook.
