      Author Event with Walt Gragg

      ABOUT THE BOOK In 2017, former prosecutor and military veteran Walt Gragg exploded onto the literary scene with his stellar and award-winning debut The Red Line. Now, Gragg follows up his epic first novel with another intense military thriller, The Chosen One (Nov. 19, 2019, Berkley), and the stakes are even higher for the world as we know it. The new leader of the Islamic world, the Mahdi also known as the Chosen One has risen up, rallying forces across the Middle East and driving them deep into Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Standing in the fundamentalists way are forces made up of mostly American troops lodging desperate warfare and fighting waves of missiles as the Mahdi continuously unrolls the tricks up his sleeve. In the thick of it is Marine Lieutenant Sam Erickson, whos fought with his company all the way from the Mediterranean to the outskirts of Cairo. Amongst the fighting, Sam now finds himself at the nexus of it all and asking himself a critical question: Can he make the sacrifices necessary for the greater good? Like his first novel, Walt puts readers at the very core of the action in this fast-paced, tension-filled thriller complete with dust, desert heat, and danger. ABOUT THE AUTHOR WALT GRAGG lives in the Austin, Texas, area with his wife, children, and grandchildren. He is a retired attorney and former Texas state prosecutor. Prior to law school, he spent a number of years in the military. His time with the Army involved many interesting assignments, including three years in the middle of the first Cold War serving at United States European Command headquarters in Germany. His first novel, the critically acclaimed The Red Line, was named the 2017 Best Book Award winner for best thriller/adventure novel and was a 2018 International Thriller Writers best first novel finalist.
