Author Frank Wilem will be at Bay Books on Saturday, November 24th to sign his Mississippi based novel, The Pass.

Fact: A live nuclear bomb lies in shallow water off the U.S. coast one of dozens lost around the world. The year is 1958. A B-47 bomber carrying a live nuclear weapon is returning from a simulated attack on the Soviet Union when it collides with an F-86 Sabre jet fighter plane. In a desperate attempt to land safely, the crew requests and is granted permission to jettison the bomb. But instead of being over deep water as they believe, they are just off the coast of the southern United States in less than 20 feet of water when they drop the bomb.

Based on this true event, The Pass takes you inside the cockpit of the bomber for this harrowing experience before joining Quint and Dawson over fifty years later in this sequel to The Keys. They are on a mission to locate and recover the lost bomb a mission that quickly becomes a wild race against a group of terrorists bent on detonating the bomb in their twisted jihad against the U.S.  Quint’s team is pushed to the limit as they struggle against overwhelming odds and a well-armed enemy that will stop at nothing to get the bomb.

The Pass, published in 2012, is Frank Wilem’s second novel. This sequel to his first book, The Key.
