The ultimate threats facing United States come to life in Frank Scozzari's fast-paced thriller. With the help of an inside man, a group of determined terrorists siege a nuclear power plant, intending to spread radiation and wreak destruction into the world.

The only thing standing in their way are two misfit security guards, who return to their posts and realize what is happening in the power plant. The two soon find themselves in a battle against time and odds, as the terrorists facing them will stop at nothing to accomplish their goals.

The Wind Guardian exposes the vulnerability of a terrorist attack on one of our nation's nuclear power plants from an insider's perspective.

 The Wind Guardian by Frank Scozzari

The Wind GuardianIn an era where terrorism is more than a mere threat, Frank Scozzari’s The Wind Guardian is a chilling accounting of a fictitious terrorist attack that is a worst nightmare come true. A nuclear power plant has been targeted by terrorists, and the final countdown is in progress as religious zealots plan to cause a complete nuclear meltdown with the fallout being carried on the wind, potentially killing millions. In spite of supposed air-tight security, run around the clock by vetted and well-trained specialists, the human factor becomes involved as one insider becomes a traitor and two security specialists would rather risk leaving their posts for a tryst on a reactor then live up to the responsibility of their jobs.

Is it possible that a man who prefers pushing the envelope of life instead of honoring his paycheck by actually earning it and a young and naïve new recruit infatuated with what she sees as an adventurous lover could be the only ones left standing against well-armed terrorists? Do they stand a chance or will they find this night could be their last?

Follow Frank Scozzari as he deftly creates an all too realistic scenario, adds “the worst that can happen” twists to his dark and disturbing tale while serving up a frightening account of the power of hatred, treachery and human failings. As citizens, we fear this could become reality, as humans, we know this is a definite possibility, yet to be completely surrounded by these events under the bold writing of Frank Scozzari, one would wonder how anyone can sleep at night!
Brilliant writing, completely riveting and hopefully, this will remain the fictitious writing of a strong wordsmith.

  For centuries, poets have argued that unrequited love is love in its strongest form. From Afar is a timeless tale of Morgan Stanfield’s search for love in the far northern city of Saint Petersburg, Russia. Leaving the warm climate of Santa Barbara, he embarks on a four-day odyssey where he encounters a Russian beauty, a prostitute, a wise old babushka, an American chauvinist, intellectuals, the Russian mafia, and the ‘face’ of love, and comes to know how love from a distance can be more captivating than love close on hand.

  1. I like an intelligent plot, great characters, and a sense of real danger. And it has to be believable. If I get thrown out of the enjoyment of reading the book because it seems to unrealistic, than it's not a good thriller to me. :)

  12. A good thriller has to be plausible. Otherwise, I get pulled out of the story and I absolutely hate that. It also needs to have some action and suspense.
