Brilliantly conceived and exquisitely executed, Soft Target shines from the very beginning and doesn't let up. A political thriller with the threat of bioterrorism, Trudel utilizes the alternating story lines of Marine Mike Mickelson, Senator Harriet Stiles, and Ahmed Mahmoud Muhammed with ease and intrigue. Moving among the motives of several different characters douses the reader in anticipation and intrigue, creating a novel that is hard to put down. When Mike is charged with a special task of overseeing a top secret project with the NSA, he doesn't expect to be attacked by an Arab jihad on the first day. Nor does he expect the father of the woman he is protecting to go missing on the next. But these events are only the beginning in this fast paced, explosive story. Trudel knows his history and entertainingly interprets it in his highly realistic writing. The characters feel alive and read with authenticity from the FBI, the Islamic extremists, the Oregon Police Chief, among many other varied characters, each reads the way one would imagine it could. While the NSA works with Cybertech to build a secure system that would allow congress to be run virtually, Bukhari terrorists create a bioweapon aimed to take down the United States' legislative branch through conspiring with members of the US government. Where very few can be trusted, an unusual alliance between Ms. Patton, who runs the NSA project, Marine Mickelson, and the President provides the only chance that the attack won't be successful. Trudel creates a believable tale packed with plausible scenarios and likeable characters. The edges of fiction and reality overlap in Trudel’s books. “Thrillers are fiction .... Until it happens!”

Russia had learned the hard way the extremes these fanatics would go to… Ten years ago, Captain Yuri Shakirov stood in horror as young children were butchered by a hail of bullets from a group of Islamic extremists. As blood spattered the walls of this small Beslan school, Yuri's greatest fear was that this tragedy would someday be repeated. Now America would encounter these same crazed murderers… All the terrorists needed was a place where they could descend, like the cowards they were, and strike terror into the heart of every American. An average middle school in California seemed the perfect soft target. The terrorists saw it and pounced. And Yuri was once again thrust into the line of fire. It would take strong determination and courage to stop what had happened in Russia from happening here. The Americans need his help, but can Yuri find the strength to go through this nightmare again?

Wounded FBI agent Gray Harper will honor his dead partner by returning to work—as soon as the Bureau shrink clears him for duty. In the meantime, a long vacation in his best friend's hometown sounds like the perfect distraction. But Nate Mathis has another plan. His twin sister, Maggie, has a stalker, and Gray's the only one Nate trusts to catch the bastard. Admitting she's scared would bring the cavalry, and Maggie Mathis has always taken care of herself. She certainly doesn't need a bodyguard. As far as she knows, Gray's in town to work as the Mathis family's new business manager. That she's always found her brother's friend handsome is something she'll keep to herself. Gray's real job would be a lot easier if he didn't have to keep his intentions from Maggie. It would also be easier if he didn't want to sleep with her. He certainly shouldn't have kissed her good-night. There never should have been a second date. All too soon, the line between responsibility and pleasure blurs. Gray hates to think of Maggie in danger. He hates that he thinks about Maggie too much, and of the day he won't be there to protect her. Secrets aren't easy to keep from those you love, but Gray needs to guard several with his life…before he risks losing Maggie forever.
