Scott Klug is a former United States Congressman, an Emmy award winning journalist, and a relentless world traveler. A long time student of comparative religion and archaeology.
"Over the last 20 years I've visited a number of sites in this book and I knew somewhere in between the dark alleys of Stockholm and an obscure Buddhist temple in Sri Lanka there was a good story lurking. I've always contended the occult traditions of major faiths have more in common than most people think. And just maybe there is an alliance of Holy Men of different faiths willing to battle together to put a stop to evil.
I never really wanted to be a politician. I always wanted to be an archaeologist when I grew up.
So welcome to my first novel. Think The Da Vinci Code meets "Indiana Jones."

The Hesitant Warrior
by Scott Klug
The death of a monk in a terrorist attack reignites a blood feud simmering since the days of the Crusades. Caught in the cross fire is Father Pete Farrell, a Navy seal turned Jesuit who is caught between his vows of peace and his oath to protect the innocent. His adversary, an Iraqi officer turned fanatic who killed his unit during Desert Storm. Hard to not make it personal. A fast paced thriller.

“Indiana Jones meets the DaVinci Code” WSJ 7/19/13
Four men of faith confront an ancient evil, and a sinister conspiracy whose tentacles stretch from Stockholm to Singapore. At the heart of the thriller is a Green Beret turned Priest who is an expert in the black market sale of stolen artifacts. When you stare down evil, a few prayers can help, but so can a well-aimed sniper rifle.
