Overview

It's the new millennium, and the new military dictator of Iraq, Khalid Ribat, threatens Israel with nuclear holocaust. The weapon is New Babylon, a gigantic cannon originally begun by Saddam Hussein but hidden during the Gulf War. A group of Russian military and political leaders bent on returning Russia to this former glory have joined forces with Khalid to complete the super cannon and even supply him with the plutonium needed for the nuclear warheads.

The Israelis soon learn of New Babylon but discover that it is hidden deep in a mountain in eastern Iraq, well out of the range of their aircraft and missiles. A plea for help goes to Washington. The Americans quickly realize that the only way that they can destroy New Babylon is by learning its precise location. The Americans send in their secret spy aircraft based at their top-secret base on Groom Lake.

But there are deeper motivations pitting two spymasters against each other in a post-Cold War version of The Espionage Game. The Russians' real goal is the capture of America's newest technology, the CLEO computer, a neural network capable of thinking and making independent decisions like a man. It is Lazarus Keesley's task to stop them. The Espionage Game is more than a techno-thriller - it is also a spy-versus-spy novel of the Le Carré school filled with double and triple crosses.

Meet the Author

Paul Reilly
A technologist who earned his Ph.D. in 1972, Paul Reilly started off writing PDP-11 assembly programs for Digital Equipment Corporation in the early 1970's, before moving to the Silicon Valley in 1979 to join the microprocessor revolution. A veteran of too many start-ups, Paul eventually joined Silicon Graphics, where he first wrote code for Unix, and then moved on to networking, telecommunications, digital video and compression. A quick learner, he mastered Ethernet, FDDI, Token Ring, TCP/UDP/IP, ATM, SDH, SONET, MPEG, JPEG and a host of other technologies.
Early on, creative writing became a major release for him from the daily grind of the high-technology world. As the years went by, the pile of manuscripts accumulated, until in 1999, he sold out and retired to the Sierra foothills of California. Finally free of the daily route 101 commute, Paul has at last had time to finish these books and publish them. The first were The Espionage Game and Dragon Fire. Next. 2006 saw the publishing of thefirst two books of the Alex O'Connor trilogy, Negrita and The Rule, which are a fictionalized autobiography.
In addition, we published Sea Eagle in 2006, an Old Man and the Sea story about the American Home Front of World War II.
In 2011, we published two Irish fairy tales written by Paul as well. The first is The Legend of Dearbhaíl, a fairy legend set in the prehistory of Ireland, and Dearbhaíl's Lament, a Romeo and Juliet tragedy set in the Troubles of Northern Ireland in 1924.
Additionally in 2011 we published a science fiction novel about the Ban-dol, which comes to Area 51 to reclaim its flying saucer.
Other books are in the works as well, including the Fionnuala series , the story of an Irish elf and her adventures over a very long lifetime. The first book will be Kilcarrick, which is in the publication cycle and should be out in 2011. There are presently two more books in this series being worked on with at least three more in planning stages
