PRAISE FOR RICK CHESLER'S TARA SHORES SERIES 

"A whale of a tale by first-time author Rick Chesler involving modern-day pirates, media moguls, and a sexy federal agent -- all chasing a cetacean-mounted camcorder and the crucial piece of evidence needed to resolve a murder." 
~Steve Alten, NY Times bestselling author of MEG 

"WIRED KINGDOM is a fast-paced thriller that is one third deep-sea adventure, one third FBI sleuthing and one third awesome. A superb debut novel and killer concept." 
~Jeremy Robinson, author of PULSE and INSTINCT. 

"Chesler melds science and adventure with the brilliant command of the late Crichton. kiDNApped takes readers on a Hawaiian journey they won't soon forget." 
~Douglas Corleone, author of Night on Fire 

"This is a summer page turner...Remember when Michael Crichton was good? This is who I'm reminded of when I read Wired Kingdom." 
~Geekscribe.com 

"Great scientific concepts that are based in reality, especially the 
secret messages encoded in DNA...Vivid setting in Hawaiian islands with 
lots of local color and local detail. Good pacing will keep you reading 
to the end. FBI agent Tara Shores is one cool, competent chick." 
~ScienceThrillers.com 

"The lush Hawaiian setting is conveyed in a way that immerses the reader 
in the story. There's a strong scientific element to the plot, but is 
handled in a way that keeps the book accessible. kiDNApped is an 
exciting techno/science thriller in the spirit of Michael Crichton." 
~MEGALITH reviews 

Chesler really had me with all the clever science 
experiments, fast-paced chase scenes, gun action and original twists 
and turns. I need a crow bar to pry myself away." 
~TheNovelBlog.com

O.U.T.C.A.S.T. Ops: Game of Drones released today!

When a highly sophisticated terror cell steals a contingent of deadly Reaper drones from a U.S. military base, no one has to wonder for long what they'll be used for. As America's own top military technology is turned against its homeland, it looks as though, for the first time in history, the president will have no choice but to give in to terrorist demands. 

Enter O.U.T.C.A.S.T. (Operational Undertaking To Counteract Active Stateside Threats)--six ex-operatives from six of America’s most powerful organizations. Each has been unceremoniously released by their respective former employer for alleged misdoings that leave their pride wounded but their essential skill-sets untouched. After uniting over their shared bond of dismissal from the nation’s most elite outfits, the disgruntled spooks realize that they can work together like never before to take down threats to their beloved country, a country that branded them as outcasts but needs them now more than ever. 

As a nauseating wave of drone strikes brings the eastern seaboard to its knees, O.U.T.C.A.S.T. is hell-bent on showing America that their way isn't the best way--it's the only way.
