BENJAMIN FRANKLIN AWARDS TM
SILVER AWARD for "BEST NEW VOICE--FICTION"
CURRENTLY IN ADAPTATION FOR A MAJOR HOLLYWOOD SCREENPLAY!
Craig O. Thompson s novel is an action-filled, suspense-thriller--intertwined with a blend of historical fiction--set in 1995... and 1910.
Based on fact, OMAR is a literary novel of suspense and intrigue, where truth and myth come together to chronicle a triadic underwater race of epic proportions.
Excessive greed, pride, world politics--and the sacrificing of values to accomplish greater ends--compete with the very real possibility of nuclear, biological or chemical terrorism's arrival on democratic shores.
London, England, 1910 to 1912. Two men--an antiquarian book dealer and the acclaimed official bookbinder and "illuminator" to His Majesty the King--commissioned and created "the most magnificent book binding in the world." While en route to its new owner, the ship--carrying the binding and its courier--sank in the North Atlantic. And the gold-and-jewel-bound book was lost at sea.
FACT OR FICTION?
Eighty-three years later, in 1995, the priceless book lay buried hundreds of miles out from the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, at 2077 fathoms from the surface of the North Atlantic Ice Barrier.
Terrorists, mercenary divers, and government agents rush to the site of the "illuminated" binding and other lost treasure... now worth well over $30 million, if found. And the book becomes the primary object of an underwater race that could change the face of world politics... and strike fear in the heart of any democratic nation
Circumstances set off a web of international intrigue, so frightening, that CIA's Colonel Bramson and FBI's decorated agent, Jennifer Nakamura, were jointly assigned to the project.
Dr. Cary Parker, Woods Hole oceanographer and scientist--unwillingly drafted, by CIA, to beat both teams to the ship's location--had to choose between his belief that such "gravesite" treasures should be left untouched... versus mercenary beliefs of unscrupulous divers who would sell their souls to recover them.
Having already faced death straight-on, at two and a half miles below sea-level, Parker was forced to decide whether the cause was just another CIA and FBI misadventure--or a truly dangerous time for democratic nations.
