LGBT Best Scene Screenplay Reading: LOTUS OPERANDI, by Janet Caulfield


This one is pure fun! It’s a genre buster, James Bond meets
All That Jazz and Cabaret. Asian American black belt goes undercover
for the CIA to help track down terrorists. Oh, and did I mention she’s
the lead in a Broadway musical? This is very musical, but there’s a
lot of action.

Genre: Action, Thriller, Drama

The main characters reside in New York. They are part of an international terrorist group, which includes cyber terrorists and arms dealers from Pakistan, and a weapons and explosives ring in China. The savvy CIA Agents discover evidence that they are planning duo attacks on the subways in New York and London on the 4th of July. That’s where the story begins, but believe it or not, it’s really a love story
