History and conspiracy combine in new mystery novel

Set in the mid-1950s, historical fiction mystery novel Operation Destiny is a step outside author Donald J. Lloyd’s everyday work.

The story follows Matt Kane, a World War II Army intelligence officer turned investigative journalist in Excelsior, Minnesota. Kane’s curiosity got the better of him, leading to an attack on his life. What follows is an investigation into a world-wide conspiracy, full of twists and turns. The novel is a balance of conspiracy, mystery, crime and history.

Lloyd, part-time associate professor in health policy and management in the University of Georgia College of Public Health, takes a step into the unknown with “Operation Destiny.” More information about the book can be found here. Lloyd will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the College of Public Health.
