Tom Avitabile, the author of a series of best-selling political techno thrillers, will speak at the Brooklyn Heights Library’s interim branch and sign his fifth and newest book “Give Us This Day.” The book is his third best-seller.

The event, which will include music and light refreshments, will take place on Thursday. Jan. 12 at 6:15 p.m. at 109 Remsen St. in Brooklyn Heights.

The protagonist of “Give Us This Day” is savvy former FBI agent Brooke Burrell, who picks up what appears to be a cushy assignment while her husband is deployed at sea. The job, however, devolves into chaos: murdered witnesses, a hacked Wall Street hedge fund, explosions too close for comfort and “the biggest, most devastating attack ever directed against a city. One that no one saw coming.”

Avitabile’s earlier books include “The Eighth Day,” “The Hammer of God,” “The God Particle” and “The Devil’s Quota.”

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

As a former electronic engineer who has worked for the House Committee on Science Space and Technology, Avitabile’s books are deeply researched and technically plausible. He is also a film director and producer, musician and senior vice president and creative director of a small New York advertising firm.

The presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the Brooklyn Heights Branch Library and is supported by the Brooklyn Eagle.
