About the BookFAST PACED ACTION involving new technologies, spies and counter-spies, global military conflicts, unanticipated twists and turns, a panorama of cultures, and fascinating characters…all of which is woven into a fabric of geographical, political, historical, artistic, and mythological themes.

This is a techno-thriller with the background of a Middle East war involving Iran, the United States, and Israel. National leaders, in their quests for power, sacrifice massive numbers of their own peoples by unleashing a novel and frightening biological weapon. The application of cutting-edge nanotechnology to food products takes advantage of century-old historical observations about the nature of genetics, inheritance, and evolution to result in a horrific new virus. It is a weapon that is able to rapidly spread across the globe to target specific populations, can be triggered at will, and is highly lethal, creating widespread death and terror.

Bill Walker, U.S. Special Forces, sets out to avenge the apparent unrelated death of his twin brother, soon finding himself the key figure in a full-scale international war.

At odds with the American President, Walker races against time, attempting with the aid of a few dedicated colleagues to prevent a string of assassinations, quell the epidemic, prevent the economic collapse, and thwart the social breakdown of society. The sudden onset of powerful solar flares threatens to completely undermine his efforts. All the while Walker is surrounded by rival voluptuous femmes fatales, both of whom are in some unknown way critically involved in the genesis of the global disasters.
