NEWS RELEASE: "White King Rising" Book Signing with Internationally Known Author and Actress Lee Kessler


At book signing, December 19 at 4pm in Clearwater, FL for “White King Rising,” the anticipated sequel to “White King and the Doctor,” actress and novelist Lee Kessler will discuss - Is there a Fifth Column at work undermining our culture?

Clearwater, FL - December 13, 2009 – Artists in Action Fine Arts Gallery, 400 Cleveland Street, Clearwater, Florida will host internationally known author and actress Lee Kessler on Saturday, December 19th at 4:00pm. Kessler will sign and discuss her latest book White King Rising - a fascinating suspense novel taken from today’s, and possibly tomorrow’s, headlines.


White King Rising is the story of ex-CIA analyst James Mikolas and Andrew Weir, his young Grand-master chess champion partner. After discovering the location of the world’s second-most-wanted terrorist—Ayman Al-Zawahiri and what strategy he would use to bring down the United States from within; Mikolas, "The Kid", and a most unlikely ally, devise a game plan to outmaneuver "The Doctor" and save "The White King."

When asked how she came to write the books Kessler replied, "Subsequent to the events of 9/11, I held the paradoxical hope that the devastation of that day might be the saving grace of our troubled country—that Americans would become more united. Instead, we have become more divided than at any point in my lifetime. I asked myself what could be at work here? Was there possibly a 'Fifth Column' in the United States whose purpose was to destroy our solidarity? A visit to the FBI’s 'Most Wanted Terrorists' site revealed a provocative omission. I decided to probe it. The result was White King and the Doctor and the just released sequel White King Rising."

The book-signing event is free and open to the public. The afternoon event will include a discussion about the wide range of sociological phenomenon that appear to be undermining our culture – are they connected and could this story be true?
