A young man running from Vietnam finds himself in another kind of war - a war of terrorism spreading across Europe. This new thriller, based on true events, follows a young field analyst from a U.S. government agency assigned to study emerging terror tactics. He's charged with watching over the unpopular prime minister of Spain, Luis Carrero Blanco. When a terrorist's deadly experiment kills Blanco, the analyst begins a cat-and-mouse chase across Europe with Chaban, the mastermind assassin, narrowly escaping death again and again in this fast-paced thriller.

Blanco's death is just the first step in an almost unstoppable plot to destroy Europe's economy. The analyst, a "hollow man," knows he's no hero but feels compelled to take a stand against terrorism, haunted by his own demons and one of Chaban's previous murder victims, a 12-year-old girl. Disowned by his own government, his only help comes in the form of an MI6 agent who is also his lover. Always a step behind, the two race to stop Chaban before Europe explodes. Thousands of lives hang in the balance, sure to become collateral damage in the terrorist's plot unless the flawed hero and his partner can stop him.

Paul Hollis always had wanderlust, living in 12 states and eventually working in all 50, luring him with the idea of touring the world at someone else's expense. He has worked in 48 countries across five continents during nine years of living abroad teaching companies worldwide about potential global implications.

Paul's travel experiences inspire the novels in "The Hollow Man" series and present a unique viewpoint to his globe-trotting thrillers, bringing the streets and villages of Europe to life. He now lives in St. Louis. For more information, visit
