Death of a Hummingbird
By Ben DeWitt
Death of a general, an FBI agent, CIA operatives, retired police officers, a trucker named
Trish and...a hummingbird. Colonel Cody Watson could be next if he doesn't figure out who's behind the murders and what they want
that's on a computer disk stamped with an omega emblem. Leaving a trail of bodies, his search takes him from the nation's capital
to New York City and the wilds of Wyoming and the Idaho headquarters of the militia confederacy, Fire Base Inc.
Ben DeWitt spins a tale of intrigue and adventure, combining his storytelling talent with his military background.

From our readers....
"...Mr. DeWitt is an excellent storyteller and has a good working knowledge of the military, CIA, FBI, NSA,
and the inner workings of government. The plot flows well; the suspense he creates may keep you up into the wee hours of the morning
to complete this well-written novel. Unlike a Clancy novel, which may take days to read, this book can be devoured in a long afternoon.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good, well-written suspense novel." Bruce, El Paso, Texas
is the second of DeWitt's books that I have read and I look forward to his next one. The characters are so easy to know and become
a part of the reader's life until they can finally put the book down. The plot is very contemporary and smoothly portrayed with various
events that are familiar in the news. The storytelling ability of the author is to be commended. Toward the end I just couldn't put
it down until I finished reading. Congrats, and keep on pounding the keyboard..." Jennifer, Olivet, Michigan

CIA communications, political deceit. Highly entertaining, a satisfying mix of action, crime and sex." The Book Reader, Spring/Summer
