Caught in PRISM's Web: A James Alan Spy Thriller
When a young college graduate is swept up in a vast money laundering ring that reaches from the corridors of Wall Street to the highest levels of the US government, there are few he can trust –and fewer still who want to see him make it out alive.

If you are a fan of fast-paced, action-packed thrillers that combine corruption, greed and secrecy with political intrigue, then ‘Caught in PRISM’s Web’ is for you

CAUGHT IN PRISM’S WEB begins in the sleepy college town of College Station, Texas with a soon-to-be college graduate, James Alan, who is lost and looking to find his place in the world. What James doesn’t realize is that his life is about to take an unexpected turn, thanks to a chance encounter with one of the United States’ brightest intelligence officers. 

Following the explosive, anonymous revelations that a Vice President at one of Wall Street’s most powerful financial institutions – and wife of a powerful Texas Congressman – has been funneling foreign funds into American political campaigns for political favors and kickbacks, it falls to a secretive committee within one of the United States’ most powerful intelligence organizations to uncover the source of the foreign funds…Who is financing American political campaigns? And for what purpose?

Corruption appears to know no bounds. Before long, it becomes apparent that James is in over his head. His best chance of staying alive may be the very people that he has come to rely on – a brilliant, young NSA cryptographer; a beautiful, young Wall Street intern and one of the most experienced intelligence officers that the United States government has ever had. The stakes for the nation – and the young man caught up in it all – could not be any higher…
