Orlando, FL (BlackNews.com) - Witness the evolution of African-American global power in Derwin J. Bradley's groundbreaking new novel, The Operator: Fear No Evil. In this whirlwind political/espionage/action thriller, there is a new Civil Rights Movement in America, and its about time!

In 1993, images of white U.S. soldiers dead bodies being dragged through the dusty streets of Mogadishu shocked America. Then, in 1994, the O.J. verdict further stunned white America and set off a firestorm of overt and hidden race-related retaliations. The number of violent hates groups rapidly doubled and hate crimes skyrocketed. Anti-Black discrimination rose dramatically (with Black males as the primary target), as did nationwide attacks on Affirmative-Action programs.

Indeed, the old Civil Rights struggle, which formally ended with the signing of 1964 legislation, had been a long, painful, but ultimately successful venture. However, new threats and challenges continue to emerge, therefore new tactics and strategies are now needed.

In The Operator: Fear No Evil, the director of The Urban Justice Research Institute, Harold Ashford, has the daunting task of formulating and executing those new tactics and strategies. Ashford enlists Civil Rights icon Reverend James Johnson Sr. to lobby powerful politicians to make permanent the right of African-Americans to vote with federal protection, and to combat the opponents of Affirmative Action. Ashford also asks California Congresswoman Sheila E. Winters to secretly draft a bill that would classify all pro-violence hate groups in America as terrorist organizations and outlaw them.

Dr. Jonathan Richard Burns, leader of the ultra-violent white supremacy group, The New American Frontier learns of Reverend Johnson's efforts and retaliates by kidnapping him and murdering his police Bodyguards in the process.

Ashford quickly recruits counter-terrorists specialist Dexter Diamond to lead the Institute's team of former Special Forces Operators and government agents on a covert mission to locate and rescue Reverend Johnson while the FBI attempt to negotiate with the terrorists. After Reverend Johnson is rescued, Ashford convinces Dexter to stay and lead the team as they attempt to protect Congresswoman Winters after a rival Senator leaks news of her new bill to Dr. Burns and his hate-terrorists. Using hardball politics, advanced technology, unconventional tactics, and a secret state-of-the-art operations center, Dexter the team, and Congresswoman Winters engage in deadly war against the New American Frontier and its powerful political allies. The future of African-American power is here! This is not your typical novel, and most certainly, this is not your father's civil rights movement!
