Nine years have passed since the end of the Cold War, and a new age of prosperity has risen from the burning ashes left by years of conflict and terrorism. But the new era of peace and tranquility is short-lived when the President of the United States is allegedly assassinated, calling IIS operative Jack Hunter back into service. From the very beginning of his investigations, Hunter is thrust into a mass entanglement of lies and deadly deception as he soon stumbles across two conspiracies: one deeply routed in post-Cold War years, the other developed in present times. Both are destined to intertwine, leading him to the discovery of the truth to a long-held family mystery. Unable to trust anyone he encounters, Hunter is swept across the globe, caught up in a desperate race against time and powerful opposition, which ultimately lead to a climactic battle of good against evil. From the lively streets of New York City to a rural setting on the outskirts of Paris, to the FSB Headquarters in Moscow and back; The Full Circle is a witty tale of twists and turns, the true espionage thriller at its best.

After a dangerous escape from Iraq akin to a Sephardic Schindlers List, this ten-year-old begins a lifelong search for meaning and his place in the world. This journey takes him to the newly-formed nation of Israel, then to Brazil, and eventually to the United States, where he serves in the US Army in Korea, works in top level positions with three Fortune 500 companies, starts several businesses, and volunteers to assist the FBI after September 11, 2001. This chronicle strives to explore questions of meaning such as: Does hardship taint the lure of adventure for any young man? What sustains hope? Does a persecuted Jew ever feel at home anywhere? This young mans journey and subsequent identity crisis interfaces with historical happenings in the world and brings an understanding of the culture and contributions of Sephardic Jews. There has been much written about the Jewish population in Germany and Europe and what they suffered, but little is known about Sephardic Jews who have also been persecuted in other countries, especially in Iraq, a country of which we as Americans have some familiarity, but know very little about.
