The Lost Colony is excited to welcome the North Carolina Secretary of Transportation and retired Brigadier General, Anthony J. (Tony) Tata, for a local book signing of his newest book Foreign and Domestic at The Waterside Theatre on Friday, June 5th at 6pm.
Tata, the author of four fiction novels in the Threat series, and one of the authors of Glen Beck’s New York Times Bestselling Nonfiction book, Miracles and Massacres, has released a new book Foreign and Domestic, which takes place on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Manteo local bookstore, Downtown Books, is providing books for purchase on site at the book signing event ($9.95), or you can order yours online here.
Anthony Tata will be featured at the Waterside Theatre at 6pm before the 7:30pm June 5th performance, which will be the first of The Lost Colony’s long standing tradition of “Dare Nights,” where citizens of Dare County are eligible to attend the show for free in return for donating nonperishable dry goods.
Foreign and Domestic features dishonorably discharged U.S. Army Captain Chayton “Jake” Mahegan who experiences post-traumatic flashbacks to combat of Afghanistan and Iraq. Set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the story unfolds revealing a soldier losing his best friend in combat to a roadside bomb and being discharged from his special operations unit for killing an enemy POW.
To seek justice for his friend, Mahegan confronts a rogue military contractor in Dare County, North Carolina, ghost prisoners from wars, and a citizen who refers to himself as “The American Taliban.”
New York Times Best Selling Author of Exit Plan, Larry Bond describes Foreign and Domestic, “General Tata’s story mixes high-threat combat with an intriguing and surprising mystery. Disgraced Delta soldier Jake Mahegan finds himself tied to a crime that proves to be much larger and more dangerous than anyone suspects, involving national security, and hitting far too close to home. Vivid and complex characters make this a fascinating read.”
Tata graduated from West Point and served 28 years in the U.S. Army, retiring as a Brigadier General. Now, Tata parlays his years of war and operational knowledge into exhilarating realistic thrillers with expert commentary on special operations, homeland and foreign terrorism, and military operations.
As a master parachutist and Ranger, Tata commanded combat infantry units in the Infantry Divisions, Airborne Divisions, and the Mountain Division. During his last combat tour in Afghanistan he was the Deputy Commanding General of the 25,000 strong Allied and Joint Task Force, overseeing an array of combat and logistical operations.
Scott Manning explains, “Tata has conducted combat operations and operational deployments in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Macedonia, Bosnia, Croatia, Hungary, Panama, Republic of Korea, and the Philippines. After his military career, he served as foreign policy commentator for FOX News, CBS News, and other national and local media outlets while also pursuing a career in education leadership in Washington, DC Public Schools and Wake County Public School System, the 16th largest system in the nation. He is currently the Secretary of Transportation for the State of North Carolina.”
