Lloyd Richardson

A Diplomat Turned Author

New Release!

Seven Days In August

The Adam Chin Trilogy concludes with a bang. 

The only thing standing between a Somalian terror mastermind and his successful execution of this devilish plan is Adam Chin, US super-intelligence agent, working with his gorgeous soulmate, Indian intelligence operative Colonel Supriya Lal. The two have only one week to unravel the plot and prevent the nuclear annihilation of Nairobi and the West’s interests in all of Africa. As the two agents race against the clock to stop Fasan’s plot, they are caught in the never-ending, political crossfire from Washington, where the iron-willed secretary of state takes on her feckless boss, the president of the United States, who seems oblivious to all but his own shabby political legacy. As always, the Chinese are involved, as they pursue their goal of world domination.

‘Dragon's Paw’ Review

Had all the "bells and whistles"! 2nd of 3 books,I'll be tapping my foot,impatiently, waiting for the next thriller....HURRY UP...and get it done.

'Dragon's Paw" Review

If you don't think we are only one push of a button away from nuclear war in the Middle East, read Launch Code. It's a fast-paced, page turner full of local color that sweeps across the Middle East, an area of the world that remains mostly unknown to the American reader despite 30 years of war and rumors of war. You will finish it hoping that we have real men like Adam Chin in the shadows working on our behalf.
