Cold Wind

Ray Derby

Wendy received a warning that the country was in grave danger from a terrorist attack by an unknown enemy. What she did not know was the threat was factual and the terrorist group intended to use a biological agent to destroy the United States of America.Only when the two young Marines she had assigned to track down this group began uncovering facts did the magnitude of the threat began to materialize and she knew the U.S. was totally unprepared for a crisis of this nature. When briefed on the situation, the President of the United States wanted no responsibility or repercussions so he passed the responsibility to Lieutenant General Wendy Darwin his liaison to the Department of Defense. Her orders to the two men were clear; find out who these people are, where they are located and then destroy them before they can act.

About the Author

Derby, Ray: -

I was born in Sioux City, Iowa. After graduating from school, I joined the U.S. Navy. That started my career of traveling all over the world. Just before my enlistment was up, I flew around the world in seven days. On returning to Sioux City, I married, raised four children and began a career in emergency management.

I started as a volunteer emergency civil defense worker, then a full-time civil defense director, and a civilian disaster preparedness officer for the U.S. Air Force. For 26 years before my retirement, I was a federal emergency coordinator for several federal agencies.

Over the years, many people have asked why I chose this profession, and I always give the same answer. If I could save one life, all of it would be worth it. What I did not say was that I was out to save thousands of lives if a major disaster should occur. I have never regretted the path I chose. It was a remarkable career that led me right to the steps of the White House.
