HONOR DEFENDED brings the War on Terror slithering into the Major's neck of the woods when a brother officer, home on leave from Iraq, is beheaded and his wife abducted by terrorists planning attacks on his beloved America.
Major Westfall is awakened before dawn one freezing late winter Saturday by a frantic call from an old friend and War Brother. Already in bad mood, he sets out to hunt for those who burnt a woman's house on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, abducted her, and left behind the beheaded body of her Marine husband.
After finding sign of someone coming ashore on the last high tide on the beach behind the family's home, he puts his ear to the Hoko grapevine and hears of a break-in where explosives were taken. A neighbor's grandchild mentions a missing school janitor, and the nickname the kids gave him, Aladdin. When the Major takes a sneak and peek he unearths a terrorist sleeper. Once again the cry of war comes calling to this citizen warrior.
Calling in the troops, he prepares to do battle deep in the Olympic Peninsula wilderness where a cadre of the evil ones have gathered, intent on creating havoc with Washington State's ferries.
HONOR DEFENDED occurs over one 24 hour period of heart-pounding, breath-stopping action in which old friends are met, new ones made, the young must grow up fast as lives are broken, and the honor of a War Brother and his family is defended.
