    American business clients and foreign banks and insurance companies regarding
    their investments in the U.S. His novels reflect the cultures and people of the
    many environments in which he has been employed to solve problems and close
    deals. The acclaimed Pacific Rebound is international suspense at its best and

    Japan, and the Great Australian Desert. His novels, Havana Passage, Justice,
    and Gitmo take place closer to home but feast on the same global awareness
    Jay Lillie brings to the stage of life. His characters are fictitious, but places and
    situations are very real, including those within the workings of Capital Hill
    and Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC, where most international lawyers
    spent the rest of their time. Jay’s experience racing sailboats in his teens, as a
    Naval Officer, and Bermuda Race veteran, brings the plot of FOUR to life.
