New Novel Parallels Current Global Crisis

Author Bud Connell combines complex characters and
earth-shattering events in the hopes of creating a story that will
resonate with everyday American citizens in Peak Experience:
A Novel

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (MMD Newswire) March 6, 2009 — Peak
Experience: A Novel by Bud Connell is the fictional story of
one man’s determination to overcome his innermost fears in
order to accomplish the seemingly impossible.

In Peak Experience, Connell introduces readers to Trip, an
ordinary yet complex man who has just been employed by a
charismatic firm. From the moment Trip is hired, danger,
intrigue, romance and murder accompany him on a journey
sweeping the major ports of the world, where he encounters
double-dealers, passionate physical desires and
life-threatening experiences. Entrapped by insidious evil but
driven by the urgency of survival, Trip must conquer his
crippling fears in time to stop malicious conspirators who are
plotting to annihilate our way of life.

Motivated by the recent events in Washington and on Wall
Street and what the author believes is the general apathy of
most American citizens, Connell wants readers to identify with
the characters and circumstances in his story. “The hidden
conspiracy exposed in the novel is a plot that could actually
occur,” he says. “It is my hope that the book will penetrate the
minds and hearts of readers and encourage them to consider
that they, as ordinary citizens, could be called upon to do
extraordinary things.”
