In his first novel, FCEtier delves into the mindset of a masters candidate and the events that take the student on a career path to the top of a lonely profession. We meet “The Shooter” as a mission is about to conclude and quickly become acquainted with a conflicted individual seeking resolution to inner conflicts as a phenomenal career enters its twilight years. Then another assignment comes up almost immediately.

How does an individual become a target? Who makes the life-ending decision? The cast includes potential victims, security staffs, and several eccentric characters including an aging hippie who speaks only in song lyrics and a former FBI agent with diverse interests. The role of Julian F. Thibaut, the enigmatic billionaire member of the one percent of the one percenters, changes with the winds and adds doubt to the already unstable status quo.

As the action proceeds on several fronts, the shooter battles conscience, hired killers, and burn-out while juggling relationships and attempts at normalcy. In this fast-paced story with political overtones, FCEtier takes readers on a thrilling ride while addressing personal, business, and governmental ethics.

Praise for The Tourist Killer

All of the characters are interesting and well-developed. Mr. Etier has such a way with words, such good descriptions, such memorable locations--it holds our attention. I also found him to be well-versed in the technology of weaponry, crime scenes and forensics. I am looking forward to the sequel, or anything else he chooses to write. If you are in the mood for a thriller that includes intrigue, heart-pounding danger, un-predictable twists and turns, I highly recommend The Tourist Killer. It would make a wonderful movie.

One of The Tourist Killer's most electrifying scenes is a motorcycle ride through treacherous mountain roads that ends explosively. Astute readers will enjoy Etier's witty wordplay, pop culture references, and double entendres. Intense action paired with the sneaky machinations of the top 1% of the 1% and seasoned with thought-provoking prose make this story a must-read for fans of political thrillers and action novels.

"The Tourist Killer" is fast-paced and one wild rollercoaster of a ride - shootings and ambushes on mountain roads alternate with flashbacks of events that have helped shape the main characters and what will happen in Atlanta.
