Chasing The Cyclone and The World Turned Upside Down author Peter Thomas Senese has increased his campaign to educate law makers about the growing concern of international parental child abduction by distributing copies of both the critically acclaimed thriller evolving around the realities of international child abduction ‘Chasing The Cyclone’, and the extensive resource guide on cross border abduction, ‘The World Turned Upside Down’
Senese commented, “The I CARE Foundation has been working on creating new federal legislative policies that may dramatically reduce the number of international child abductions our nation faces. Presently, if the trend of abduction continues, there will be as many as 100,000 children criminally international stolen. This is absurd. However, if we are able to modify the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative policy while also creating a unilateral security screening list for high-risk abductors similar to the Prevent Departure Program, while of course, continuing our efforts to educate the judiciary, then we will substantially lower the child abduction rate. Education of policymakers is key. Recently, I have distributed review copies of Chasing The Cyclone and The World Turned Upside Down to certain members of Congress and other administrators charged with oversight of key government agencies in order to give them opportunity to understand what it is like to chase the cyclone of abduction. To my surprise, numerous additional requests for review copies have occurred. So, the I CARE Foundation is going to distribute several review copies to each member of Congress in hope that perhaps they, like other members of Congress, will read Chasing The Cyclone and understand the size and scope of the problem facing our nation’s children. Fortunately, even members of Congress read – and with various book critics sharing generous commentary about Chasing The Cyclone, members of Congress are in fact picking up the book exclusively through Amazon for their Kindle or requesting advanced review copies, reading, and educating themselves. It is a very big step.”
CHASING THE CYCLONE, Peter Thomas Senese’s recently released novel available on E-book that will be released next month in hardcover that critics and parents are praising as a spectacular call-to-arms against international child abduction and a gripping legal thriller that raises the bar on society’s understanding of this devastating epidemic, and an absolute must-read for the growing number of parents at risk of having their child abducted overseas by the other parent: a phenomenon that will targeted millions of North American citizens over the next decade. Pacifica TWST and Mr. Senese have announced that ‘Chasing The Cyclone’ will be released in Spanish, Italian, and French on the late Spring of 2012l.
The New York Journal of Books said of Chasing The Cyclone, “Chasing The Cyclone is a well-written thriller . . . Senese shares myriad emotions by writing in the first-person as he weaves through the action in this suspense-filled story . . . This novel might also be considered a treatise on international child abduction. Cyclone, while full of actual strategies and resources to assist parents in international abductions, is above all else a love story about a father and son … From Los Angeles, to Canada, to New Zealand, and eventually, Macau, a special administrative region of China, Cyclone is rife with international intrigue and suspense. The protagonist, Paul Francesco, orchestrates a master plan that he hopes will reunite him with the love of his life – his son. Along the way he finds himself swamped in red tape and drenched in frustration. Filled with a plethora of powerful characters and puzzling predicaments and dead ends, the story moves quickly . . . Cyclone will leave you informed and satisfied . . . you will be reluctant to put down.”
The Examiner stated, “Peter Thomas Senese is a gifted storyteller who takes readers on a heart pounding journey around the globe through the eyes of Paul Francesco, a father whose 7-year old son is abducted by his mother. The writing is raw and the emotions are real . . . The story is filled with twists and turns that will leave readers scratching their heads, seething in anger, and hugging their children a little tighter . . . I highly recommend Chasing the Cyclone as a must-read. You will not be able to put it down. It may very well change the way you look at life, child custody, and interactions with your child’s other parent. I cannot endorse this book strongly enough.”

Since his own experiences ended, and fulfilling a promise that he made, Mr. Senese has had a significant impact on creating various tools to assist targeted children and parents, including the creation of The I CARE Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to stopping child abduction that has successfully reunited numerous internationally abducted children with their parents, or has assisted in the prevention of an abduction.
