In a recent guest post from author Michael Shusko published on He Said Books or Me, Michael writes on the inspiration for his latest thriller, Shifting Sands — and how war and conflict affect his cast of relatable characters.
"I had the chance to touch on the psyche of individuals exposed to the carnage of war, as well as explore the prejudices and misconceptions that can occur on the personal and global level that hinder conflict resolution."

In her recent review of Shusko's second release, Shifting Sands, Namrata at Red Pillow Reviews discusses the novel's engaging intrigue and riveting suspense. She also delves into how the book brings us into a world at the brink of war, and the tough decisions these characters must make as they fight demons on all fronts — including within.
"This book is definitely worth a read for those who enjoy the action and a slightly fast-paced story of duty, honor, and protection of countries and their people."

In a recent guest post from author Michael Shusko published on Fiction Books, Michael talks about the Tradecraft world of terrorism, international intrigue, espionage and clandestine operations, as well as the future of the series.
"A revolving cast of characters, good and bad, is interwoven throughout the series. They disappear and reappear in turn — and both have traits and attributes which will surprise readers. Unbeknownst to most of the characters, their individual stories in each book are a small part of something much larger."
