A retired Secret Service agent seeks to do good. Thomas D. Sloan put in 25 years and seven months at the White House and other key locations, later serving as a corporate security executive and pointman for an international financial crimes task force. Mr. Sloan became very privy indeed to the challenges of large public events, public safety and the moment-to-moment nature of such things. Now he has penned a thriller novel titled “Bratva’s Rose Tattoo,” just published, and already selling on Amazon.

All profits — yes, that’s all the profits — go to the Navy SEAL Foundation and Children’s Specialized Hospital, a comprehensive pediatric rehabilitation facility in New Jersey.

And the plot here?

According to Mr. Sloan:  “An Air Force transport plane ferrying the president’s limousine and scores of Secret Service, Marine, and Air Force personnel has been hijacked by Bratva —  the Russian mob — which seeks the release of a brilliant and dangerous cyber hacker named Max.”

Principal characters include a female special agent and her husband, a Coast Guard commander and military attache, caught up in the tangle between Russians and America’s elite security forces. More here: Donning.com/Bratva
