Jeff Dejent

Biography

Jeffrey Dejent grew up and went to school in Milwaukee Wisconsin. He graduated from college in June of 1970. Away from the keyboard Jeff likes to ride bicycles and go jogging. When it snows he dabbles in things like software defined radio and computer hacking.

Jeff welcomes comparisons / criticisms of his novels and screenplays against the works of the late greats Stephen J. Cannell, Mister Tom Clancy, and of course Mister James Patterson. He would be happy to ghostwrite for one of the big names in the industry. Problem is, the lines are so long, you have to take a number.

If you cannot find anything new by Tom Clancy or James Patterson, you should give Jeff a try. If your favorite television shows include: Criminal Minds, NCIS, and Numbers, you will enjoy Jeff.

People Of The Sun Third Of Death
PEOPLE OF THE SUN Third of Death is about a wealthy Columbian businessman named Alberto Nayari. Nayari is a man struggling to move up and away from the 'Pistol Waving Bandito Drug Lord' image he inherited from his father and his grandfather. Nayari wants the world to see him as a philanthropist. A man building a pathway to prosperity for the people he loves- the people of Columbia. Unfortunately for Alberto, many believe him to be the leader of a band of revolutionaries, the- F. A. R. C. In South America, people say 'Earth Quakes Come In Sixes'. The sons Alberto raised with his supermodel American wife grow up be little more than trust fund babies. They turn to drug dealing and soon lose their lives in gun battles with an Action Officer in the CIA. A short while later, mafia toughs from Philadelphia bungle an effort to assassinate the Don. Bullets intended for Alberto wound his beautiful wife. Angelina ends up in a coma, lying in a hospital bed, maybe forever. Nayari deals with these issues as you might expect from a billionaire in South America. He buys four dozen Stinger missiles from an arms dealer in Switzerland. Then he declares war on the United States.
Trust Fund Babies Big Hammers
Did you read everything you could find on the Menendez brothers, and the cold calculated way they took the lives of their parents in 1989? Are you a fan of the television series- 'Criminal Minds'? If yes- 'Trust Fund Babies' is right for you. 1993 sees a huge increase in terrorism. On the 25th of January a man with 'middle eastern' features opens fire at the entrance way to the CIA. On the 26th of February an Arab terror team sets off a huge bomb under the World Trade Center. Is all this violence 'Blow Back' from the war against Saddam Hussein? Moses Anderson, CIA Action Officer has a theory. He reminds the Police in Peru arrested the head of the Shining Path Guerrillas in 1992. Anderson thinks 'Presidente Gonzalo's' followers fled Peru when they lost their leader. He thinks displaced Guerrillas are responsible for the sharp uptick in international crime. Is he right? Late in the spring of 1993 four nuns in Mexico are brutally raped and murdered. Police find the scene littered with drug manufacturing paraphernalia. The trail leads to the United States. Are the perpetrators revolutionaries? Are they spree killers with no sense of right and wrong?
IRAQ WAR 1990 - 1991

Just as air to ground combat operations seem to be smoothing out Lieutenant Roxanne La Fontaine is shot down over enemy territory. Locating her plane is not too difficult.
