After learning that an Iranian scientist is in the process of developing nuclear weapons on Iranian soil, all-but-forgotten spymaster Stewart Banquo initiates a rogue special operation. With the assistance of his most trusted agent, Robert Wallets, Banquo recruits Peter Johnson, a dissolute, morally bankrupt liberal news journalist, to travel to Iran. Johnson poses as a sympathetic reporter writing a piece on the country's nuclear facilities. His mission: to kill the scientist.

Like many elaborate plans, Johnson's assassination attempt fails. The journalist falls into Iranian hands and is tortured to confess---a staggering security crisis for the United States. Aided by Wallets and the battle-hardened Marjorie Morningstar---the CIA operatives who trained him---Johnson escapes from Iran. Now back in the United States, Johnson helps Banquo and his CIA cohorts lead a team of federal agents and New York City officials in tracking down a group of suspected Iranian terrorists in New York who are planning to commit nuclear terrorism by dispersing a highly radioactive material throughout the city streets and subways. When Johnson's only daughter is kidnapped by the Iranians, he and Banquo must race against time to save her...and the City of New York. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " A page turner. Gives you a good idea could have been happening in the near past and what could happen in the near future. "

    " Of all the spy thrillers I've read (and loved!), I think I like this one the best, simply because all the characters in it seem as flawed as I am, and so even more believable than Gabriel Allon, Scot Harvath, and Mitch Rapp. "

    " I actually listened to this one on audio, which was excellent. In light of 9/11, it's pretty scary, as it involves a plot by Iranians to develop and deploy a nuclear weapon. Hits close to home but is very well done, suspenseful and interesting. "

    " Storyline was okay. Charater studies were above average. The story itself was a bit cumbersome and difficult to move through. I expected more. "
