Rich Fordham--world-renowned journalist and television personality. His celebrity has given him wealth, fame, and security.
Until the day that he receives an email that will shatter his prestigious career forever. The message is from an informant who offers damaging videos of prominent Saudi Arabian dignitaries--including the king. Rich knows that it's part of an elaborate scheme to derail the monarchy.
And he doesn't know that he's been targeted to play a pawn's role in that deadly plot.
The Saudi king grants Rich an exclusive interview, supposedly to discuss oil prices and foreign policy. But not everyone wants him there. And when he, his camera man, and their security team arrive, jihadists ambush their convoy.
Now, Rich must decide between saving himself, or helping to rescue the captured survivors. And he must then decide whether to walk away, or to play his assigned role in the conspiracy to overthrow the corrupt Saudi government. His toughest choice: whom should he put his trust in?
For his own life may not be the most important thing in peril....
I always get asked how did I decide to write and where did I come up with my ideas. My simple reply is that I read a lot of thrillers. My small library is filled with all the authors of my genre that I give credit for inspiring me to plunge into the writing world.
My dream is to be up there with the Clancy's, Thor's, and Flynn's. That competitiveness is what drives me. It's why when I did research for Kingdom of Rage, I consulted experts in the fields that I was writing about to ensure I was accurate with the technical details.
I want to entertain the reader and take them to a place where they can escape. I want to illustrate a picture so vivid and intense that they forget about time and where they are.
I was at a Vince Flynn book-signing event several years ago in St. Paul, Minnesota. After shaking his hand and having a short conversation, I convinced myself that I should take up writing. During the drive home, I came up with the character that would become my new best friend. This is when my protagonist Rich Fordham was created.
