Overview

Following up on the mysterious radioactive poisoning of more than 30 research scientists at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, Washington reporter Peter Robbins pursues an unusually intensive investigation in an attempt to prove to his newspaper editors that he is worthy of being sent back overseas as a foreign correspondent, something he has done for much of his career. His inquiry eventually leads him to South Korea, and to a pair of scientists tricked into working on nuclear and chemical weapons in North Korea, thinking they were working on covert programs controlled by their government. Along the way he becomes involved, in a torrid affair with a raven-haired Eurasian beauty, is encouraged by the Central Intelligence Agency to perform a mission its agents could not safely tackle, becomes aware of a number of wanton murders, and is himself the target of two very close-call attempts on his own life. His quest confronts a very unexpected twist at the end.

    Enlightening and Gripping

    The suspense of this thriller had me hooked from beginning to end. This fictional work gives an in-depth and intriguing perspective into the competing international interests that surround North and South Korea. Beecher injects his knowledge of history and culture into the characters and the storyline. We are introduced to an investigative journalist as he searches for answers in a world influenced by corporate media, government intelligence and international tensions. This is a fascinating read.
