With the voice of forty-five years of experience in the Intelligence Community, Bayard & Holmes journey through Iran's history to define the challenges that face Western nations today.
A cradle of civilization, Iran has been a political hot spot not just for decades, but for eons. Now, the urgent issue for Western nations is the extent of Iran's nuclear capabilities.
Is Iran developing an atomic bomb? If so, should we do something to stop it? Who is "we," and precisely what would "something" be? How much would "something" cost, and to whom?
This brief, digestible timeline for both amateurs and experts is the perfect start to understanding the dynamics at play in these urgent questions.
About the Author
Piper Bayard is an author and a recovering attorney with a college degree or two. She is also a belly dancer and a former hospice volunteer. She has been working daily with her good friend Jay Holmes for the past decade, learning about foreign affairs, espionage history, and field techniques for the purpose of writing fiction and nonfiction. She currently pens espionage nonfiction and international spy thrillers with Jay Holmes, as well as post-apocalyptic fiction of her own.
Jay Holmes is a forty-something-year veteran of field espionage operations and a senior member of the Intelligence Community with experience spanning from the Cold War fight against the Soviets, the East Germans, and the various terrorist organizations they sponsored to the present Global War on Terror. He is unwilling to admit to much more than that. Piper is the public face of their partnership.
Together, Bayard & Holmes author non-fiction articles and books on espionage and foreign affairs, as well as fictional international spy thrillers. They are also the bestselling authors of The Spy Bride from the Risky Brides Bestsellers Collection and were featured contributors for Social In Worldwide, Inc.
When they aren’t writing or, in Jay’s case, busy with “other work,” Piper and Jay are enjoying time with their families, hiking, exploring back roads of America, talking foreign affairs, laughing at their own rude jokes until the wee hours, and questing for the perfect chocolate cake recipe. If you think you have that recipe, please share it with them at BH@BayardandHolmes.com.
