Child Advocate & Best-Selling Author Peter Thomas Senese Helps Build Department Of State's National Attorney Network Of Lawyers Willing To Help Prevent Child Abduction

Washington, DC, New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 07, 2012

Best-selling author Peter Thomas Senese continues his dedication to help defenseless children and their parents targeted for international abduction by supporting the International Child Abduction Research and Enlightenment Foundation (I CARE Foundation) and the non-profit organization's select national recruitment campaign seeking qualified lawyers to participate in the prestigious Department of State's ("DOS") "Hague Convention Attorney Network". The DOS network was created to allow qualified attorneys willing to assist targeted children and their parents from international child abduction or who have been abducted abroad by offering pro bono or reduced rate services, while gaining significant education and expertise in a significantly growing legal arena: international family law.

Peter Thomas Senese commented, "I am very pleased to know that the I CARE Foundation, which I am a director of, continues to work hard building an attorney network to help children. Our efforts are not in vain, not only are we creating a national network of selected highly skilled lawyers, but we are actually and verifiably stopping children from being kidnapped abroad, and, we have helped reunite children who have been taken. Our efforts to mobilize a large, nation-wide group of caring, skilled, and dedicated attorneys will surely continue."

In an effort to help fund the I CARE Foundation's efforts, Pacifica TWST and Peter Senese are pleased to announce the exclusive Amazon E-book release of "Chasing the Cyclone" that is being hailed by numerous Amazon's Hall of Fame book reviewers and readers everywhere as a fast paced suspense thriller wrapped within the ultimate love story between a father and his son. Inspired by the best-selling author's harrowing experience of racing into the dark and dangerous storms of having a child internationally abducted to the other side of the world, and a father's willingness to stop everything in his life to fight incredible odds to find and reunite with him, critics and readers alike calling "Chasing the Cyclone" by Peter Senese the ultimate love story that every loving parent should read.

The highly anticipated novel book critics and child advocates are praising is being hailed as a heart-pounding legal thriller with a purpose as the story's plot line not only provides great and much needed insight into the growing global problem of international child abduction that targets hundreds of thousands of North American children alone each year according to Senese's previously published resource guide on abduction titled "The World Turned Upside Down," but it is being hailed as a must read book for every at-risk parent of abduction.

The electrifying novel that darts around the world that has caused more than a few e-book readers to toss their reading device due to Senese's story and ability to enrapture the reader as if they are one with the story's main protagonist, Paul Francesco, has been called by many as a unique novel with potential epic social ramifications. Senese's thriller has been called a call-to-arms against child abduction, while proceeds from the novel have been used to help build a large pro bono attorney network of lawyers willing to assist parents who have children targeted for abduction, as Peter Thomas Senese has made significant donations to the I CARE Foundation, something he has pledged to continue to do.

"Chasing the Cyclone" is presently available exclusively in E-book on Amazon until March, when the novel will be released worldwide in hardcover. Peter Thomas Senese, who is the founding director of the I CARE Foundation, a not-for-profit organization created to help prevent international child abduction, is donating 100% of his author royalties to the foundation that remarkably reunited 4 different families with their abducted children. Mr. Senese commented, "When I was 'Chasing the Cyclone' of child abduction, I made a promise to my God that one day I would come back to this fight, and make a difference for other children and their parents. In donating my royalties to the I CARE Foundation, we were able to help reunite children who were criminally abducted with their families. So in this sense, I suppose, readers of my novels have a direct and measurable way to participate in helping children."

Peter Thomas Senese commented, "'Chasing the Cyclone' is the story of the greatest type of love of all: the love and commitment a parent holds for their child. Imagine having a complete life, filled with all the niceties you can imagine, when suddenly your defenseless child is used in the most unthinkable of schemes intended to cause you great hurt, and is criminally abducted to some unknown place on the other side of the world. Now imagine that the only thing that stands between bringing your child home or having your child lost forever, is you and your willingness to face the ultimate sacrifice. Well, that is what happens when a parent finds themselves "Chasing the Cyclone" of international child abduction.

Amazon's renowned Hall of Fame reviewers are praising Senese's international legal thriller "Chasing the Cyclone" as an electrifying love story fans of high suspense thrillers should read. "Chasing the Cyclone," presently available exclusively as an E-book on Amazon in E-book, is a heart-pounding story of father's search for his internationally abducted child inspired by the author's own experience chasing the cyclones of abduction.

Amazon Hall of Fame book reviewer Daniel Jolley commented, "'Chasing the Cyclone' isn't just a powerful novel; it's a call to arms against a growing epidemic that is tearing lives apart behind the headlines... 'Chasing the Cyclone' is much more than just a superb, can't-put-down novel, though; it is a book with a purpose... Peter Thomas Senese has become an outspoken advocate on this issue, and 'Chasing the Cyclone' makes for a clear and profoundly effective call to action. I would go so far as to encourage every loving parent to read this book, as the bond between this father and son is one to be emulated..."

Amazon Hall of Fame book reviewer Harriett Klausner added, "This is an exciting cautionary thriller that grips readers from the onset . . . "Chasing the Cyclone" will shake the audience, this exciting cautionary thriller grips readers from the onset..."

Dr. Grady Harp, a highly respected Amazon Hall Of Fame book reviewer said, "Peter Thomas Senese now opens the windows on the magnitude of these tragedies in his excellent "Chasing the Cyclone"... As if the fast paced energy of this story weren't enough to satisfy the reader, Peter Thomas Senese demonstrates his quality as a writer of distinction on many levels... this impossible to put down book..."

Peter Thomas Senese added, "When I think of Chasing the Cyclone, I think of the ultimate and unbowed love a father has for his child. Granted, the circumstances of the story's main character Paul Francesco finds himself in are unthinkable and may make no sense . . . unless of course, you are a parent who knows abduction, thus, this is a legal thriller of immeasurable proportions, however, for me . . . and based upon my own experiences, "Chasing the Cyclone" is the ultimate love story between a parent and their child."

Peter Thomas Senese is also donating all author royalties generated from e-book sales of "The Den of the Assassin" and "Cloning Christ" to the I CARE Foundation. The author has been extensively involved in various state and federal legislative initiatives created or implemented to stop child abduction, while also publishing extensive research reports, essays, and books on child abduction prevention.
