Jake Thoene An Interview with Jake Thoene

Agent Caracas dangles from a cliff in the rugged no-man's-land between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Spotting the rifleman below, he hides a tape in the cleft of the cliff and leaves an urgent voice mail, setting off a chain of dangerous events. Now it's up to Special Agent Steve Alstead and Chapter 16, the FBI's counterterrorism unit, to stop the scheme of an al Qaeda splinter cell … before it's too late.

Through the pages of Fuel the Fire, a new book by Jake Thoene (Tay-nee), you'll be on the edge of your seat. With drama that seems to leap right out of today's headlines, he writes with what one reviewer calls, "uncanny vision and clarity" while he "paints a vivid picture of the domestic terrorism now facing every American."

Read what Jake had to say about his life and his latest book in this fascinating look at the son of famous Christian authors Bodie and Brock Thoene.
