William S. Cohen, the former U.S. Senator and Secretary of Defense, has walked the most powerful corridors in the world. Now, in the intricately woven Dragon Fire where it's nearly impossible to distinguish fact from fiction, he takes listeners into the top secret rooms where the fate of the world is held in the hearts and minds of men with dangerous and hidden agendas.
When the Secretary of Defense is assassinated, Michael Patrick Santini, a former Senator and Vietnam P.O.W., is pulled from his Wall Street firm back to Washington to lead the Pentagon. Once there, he discovers that the United States is under attack by a silent, sinister force. Someone, somewhere is determined to destroy America as a global power—and Santini must uncover and expose this force before more acts of deceit and destruction draw the U.S. into a war where millions will die. Rejecting a direct order from the President of the United States, Santini races across the globe in a desperate attempt to prevent a man from Santini's past from starting a global war.
