Based on actual events, Open Source is a complex geopolitical thriller that follows Casey Shenk, a Savannah, Georgia, vending route driver with an insatiable curiosity, as he uncovers a black market arms deal-gone-bad and the truth behind a high-level plot to shape world politics. Casey draws his evidence from open sources--by reading beyond the headlines. When his theorizing catches the attention of the wrong people and anonymous threats turn deadly, Casey looks to Susan Williams, and intelligent but insecure analyst for the New York-based consulting firm Intelligence Watch Group for help. The two soon find themselves in the crosshairs and fighting to save their own lives, while preventing an even greater injustice that could affect the balance of power in the Middle East and plunge the world headlong into the next Great War.

Three bombs explode in Manhattan. The targets: a church, a synagogue, and a deli.

On the surface, there is no ready explanation for the bomber's objectives, but when Casey Shenk, and analyst for the geopolitical consulting firm Intelligence Watch Group discovers an altered report from the Congressional Research Service, he begins to put the pieces together. A murdered government employee, the rantings of a presidential candidate, and a Senate resolution to take the People's Mujahideen of Iran off of the list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations all point to something sinister at work inside the Washington power structure. With the help of a New York Police Department detective and the other analysts at IWG, Casey works to uncover the truth behind a network of conspiracy that is operating outside the law, where the ends always justify the matter how many people die.
