William S. Cohen, former secretary of defense, U.S. senator, and congressman, has walked the most powerful corridors in the world. Now he brings us a political thriller only he could write. Packed with action and espionage, intrigue and romance, Dragon Fire is a riveting, intricate, ripped-from-the-headlines audiobook so convincingly presented that listeners will wonder just how much of it is true.

When the secretary of defense is assassinated, Michael Patrick Santini, a former senator and Vietnam POW, 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 determined to alienate our allies and undermine our position as a global superpower. Angry militia men? Fanatical al-Qaeda? Russian organized-crime gangs? No one knows. But Santini must uncover and expose this force before more acts of deceit and destruction draw the United States into a war in which millions will die.

When he becomes the target of a murderous Chechen, Santini is saved by the beautiful, mysterious Elena, a member of Israel's elite assassination team. But what is her agenda? For whom is she really working? What price will he have to pay Elena for saving his life?

America is but hours away from going to war with the wrong enemy. 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Opa | 12/9/2013

    " A fast paced action thriller seen from the top level of government. He uses the name of Jesus Christ too many times and not in a nice way. Don't know why authors use F-bombs and god type expletives when there are better ways of describing emotion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin Shaum | 11/8/2013

    " Reminds me of Clear and Present Danger the movie. Overall good. Long and a lot of places drawn out but it really adds to the overall picture of the story. "

    " Fascinating inside view of politics that I was unaware of. Keeping everyone straight was a little difficult. I need to look at a hierarchy chart of political offices, there are sooo many. Intriguiing right to the end. "
