The Critics Are Raving About Peter Thomas Senese’s
For nearly every author, myself included, the desired outcome of writing a book is to have some type of influence on others, including raising the bar on awareness of issues presented in the written story.
Chasing The Cyclone is a deeply inspired story reflective of my own personal journey dealing with international child abduction. I wrote this story in hope to help raise awareness on the growing pandemic of international parental child abduction that could see as many as 100,000 innocent children kidnapped from the United States alone over the next ten years.
Sadly, the vast majority of children do not ever come home. And for the targeted parents of abduction, their lives are permanently destroyed.
After my family’s ordeal, I decided to do something about it. This included writing a book based upon my knowledge of child abduction.
But there was more to be done. Afterall, children’s lives were at stake – and anyone who may think that a child abducted by one parent from another is not at risk, please take note that several hundred children are murdered each year by their parents in the United States alone – and statistically, filicide knows no boundary.
So in a rather short time, I formed the not-for-profit I CARE Foundation, which has helped protect over 100 children targeted for abduction or helped legally reunite kidnapped children. In fact, the I CARE Foundation has created more than a few miracles, helping safely reunite kidnapped children taken to every continent on the planet, including multiple children abducted to Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America.
The I CARE Foundation’s work in legally rescuing children does not only follow the needs of children of parental abduction. With a great sense of pride, I am proud of the work we have done in assisting free young children, particularly young girls, who have been trafficked and imprisoned into the world of human sexual slavery.
Along the way, the I CARE Foundation has built a large attorney network of lawyers dedicated to assisting children at risk of abduction. We have helped create new laws and policies geared toward protecting children at risk of kidnapping.
Yes, the power of a book is alive and well. I am both humbled and proud of how Chasing The Cyclone has made a sizeable and measurable difference for so many children. Unquestionably, many miracles have been built from the publication of Chasing The Cyclone.
I am pleased to share some of the testimonials about Chasing The Cyclone.

“Suspenseful! Nail-Biting! Engaging! These are just the outer layers of Peter Thomas Senese’s emotionally charged … Chasing The Cyclone [is] an intricately woven web outlined in 400-pages that includes lawyers, lies, international laws and politics, betrayal, court appearances, and how one parent can shrewdly use the innocence of a child as a pawn to exact revenge, to spew hate and to extort funds from the financially able parent. Senese’s Chasing the Cyclone_ is powerful because it is borne from experience. It is richly detailed and emotionally wrought with an accuracy that can only be known by those who endured such traumas. Well-written and expertedly executed: A must read!” – V Stevenson, Reviewer at Kirkus
“Peter Thomas Senese now opens the windows on the magnitude of these tragedies in his excellent “Chasing The Cyclone”… As if the fast paced energy of this story weren’t enough to satisfy the reader, Peter Thomas Senese demonstrates his quality as a writer of distinction on many levels… this impossible to put down book.” – Dr. Grady Harp: Amazon Hall Of Fame Reviewer
“If I had to use one word to describe Chasing the Cyclone by Peter Thomas Senese it would be phenomenal. As in remarkable. Extraordinary.
