Shelby County native Drew Howell put his pen to paper and churned out a “gripping tale of counterterrorism, covert intelligence, heroism, duty and betrayal” that is slowly working its way into bookstores and onto shelves.
Expendable Assets is Howell’s first book but it certainly won’t be the last book, he said.
"This story is not finished,” he said. "I'm starting to put together ideas all ready."
And he has no shortage of sources for them.
