"Craig O. Thompson's OMAR forecasts tomorrow's headlines. The proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, materials and know-how is the number one national security threat to the United States. This well-researched fiction is a timely window into potential disasters for unprepared nations."

New Novel Dives Into Terrorism

Author-speaker and expert on terrorism, Craig O. Thompson, just wanted to write an action-adventure thriller. Years of research and study about terrorism and "NBCW"--Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Warfare--made him the expert. But the more he learned, the more the subject began to alarm and startle him.

He thought about his loved ones and our compromised national security as he realized there is a utter lack of any educational program that could help prepare American citizens for an NBCW attack. And Thompson, the novelist and keynote speaker, has been on a crusade to inform the public ever since.

Why? The current position of virtually every respected think-tank in America parallels the premise of Thompson's suspense thriller, "OMAR: A Novel." The question is not IF NBCW attacks will happen on our homeland...the question is only WHEN.

Published by StrataGem Press™, an imprint of Brightwater Publishing Company™, Indianapolis, and based on historical fact, "OMAR" (624 pgs; August, 2001)is a literary novel of suspense, intrigue, greed, pride, and world politics.

Shortly after the beginning of the Twentieth Century, two men--a London antiquarian book dealer, and the acclaimed bookbinder and illuminator to His Majesty the King--commissioned and created "the most magnificent bookbinding in the world." While enroute aboard theTitanic, to its new American owner, the ship foundered and sank. Eighty-three years later, the binding--worth well over $30 million if found--becomes the object of an underwater race. Terrorists, mercenary divers, and the U.S. government rush for the ship's site in a chase that could change the face of world politics...and strike fear in the heart of every democratic nation.

Thompson's new work is so real that it led U.S. Senator Richard G. Lugar to comment, "OMAR forecasts tomorrow's headlines....This well-researched fiction is a timely window into potential disasters for unprepared nations." Senator Lugar resides on the Senate's Select Committee on Intelligence. He was responsible, as a co-author, for introducing, writing, and passing the Nunn-Lugar-Domenici Act on domestic preparedness for terrorism employing weapons of mass destruction.

Thompson holds a B.S. and M.A. in Education from Northern Arizona University. He is a member of the International Association of Counterterrorism and Security Professionals. As a marketing and advertising professional, and arts management consultant, he has been writing for over 25 years. Currently, Thompson is working on two new novels, a non-fiction work on terrorism, and the adaptation of a screenplay.

As a member of the National Speaker's Association and International Platform Association, he was also published in an anthology titled "Star Spangled Speakers. "

The hardbound and softbound versions of "OMAR" are designed with acid-free paper, a beautiful dust-jacket (HB) or cover (SB), with embossed letters, gold-stamping, and sturdy lamination for years of reading and re-reading.

"OMAR," by Craig O. Thompson, is available at most bookstores or direct from the publisher 24/7 by calling Customer Service toll-free at 800-BOOKLOG (800-266-5564). "OMAR" sells for $24.95 ($29.95 Canadian) for the First Edition Hardbound and $14.95 ($19.95 Canadian) for Softbound, plus tax and shipping where applicable (624 pgs; adult historical fiction>suspense-thriller).
