Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0533165318, Hardcover)

Following on the heels of his clever and fascinating novel, The Man From Somalia, Citizen of the World, comes Ivan Scott’s latest fictional political expose, The Man From Somalia, A Postscript. Part political thriller and part satire, the novel explores the dark side of politics, opening with the assassination of one of the country’s most admired presidents.

In a postscript to his memoirs, Eli Carver gives an account of Bret Omari's disappearance in Somalia. The Republican president, Sandy Poulan, appoints him ambassador pro-temp with a mission to find the missing president. Eli discovers Bret and his wife have been abducted by Al Quada terrorists who are demanding a ransom of millions of dollars. In these negotiations, Eli learns that Bret and his wife have been brutally murdered. The terrorists are disposed of violently and Eli returns to the United States with the fallen president and his wife. Sandy Poulan makes Eli her Chief Advisor and with his advice adopts the Jerusalem Policy which had failed during the Omari Administration. The Israelis evacuate the West Bank and agree to a plan to make Jerusalem an international city-- its security guaranteed by the United Nations.

A page-turner from beginning to end, The Man From Somalia, A Postscript will fascinate readers across the political spectrum.
