Imagine you mistakenly dial a wrong number and the voice on the other end of the call tells you a deadly secret. As you disconnect, curiosity and fear seep into you at once.
"Tel Arad" begins with such a simple wrong number, followed by a cryptic conversation that sends journalist Butch Lewis down a path of international intrigue, military action, and political threats... all leading to a potential war and a revision of the world order.
A novel written by Dave Klein and Aaron Klein, "Tel Arad" explores what happens when a powerful President devises a plan to take control of the uncontrollable Middle East, but meets resistance from his own people. Lewis is drawn in so deeply that not only is he prevented from breaking the news but his own life is threatened from all sides unless he plays along, a pawn among kings.
The novel offers something for everyone as readers of action/thrillers, suspense, political intrigue and a sometimes sarcastic and wry sense of the way men of power interact under extreme pressure will find the book at once familiar and unique.
Among the key players in the prelude to war of and the attempts to change the course of history in "Tel Arad" are Lewis, President Edward Kent Reese and First Lady Jessie Gordon Reese, Israeli Prime Minister Yehudi Ben-Mendel, Secretary of State Harcourt Manning, the head of Secret Service John Virgil McDonnell and his undercover super-agent, Mark Halifax, four-star General Franklin Roland Leigh, who leads a black-operations unit called Thunder Top and his right-hand man, Major Harold Fritts.
What happens if President Reese's plan is successful? How can the deadly scheme hatched along with Ben-Mendel be stopped? Should it be stopped? And who is the mysterious figure lurking in the shadows, ready to strike? These are just some of the mysteries you will uncover as you turn page after page.
