For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
By Francesca Salerno
This is a great spy, political thriller. It is story that you will want to read until you get to the last page and last word. You will hang on every word and every plot twist. It is so intense it will make you want to read more even when the story is over.
Salerno is a master storyteller! She draws the reader into the story, and you will wonder what will happen about the Palestinian terrorist Yasser al-Greeb. You will even want to try to guess. Further, Salerno has a lot of knowledge about the cities that she writes about. I never visited Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Russia, and Israel. But I know more about these places now.
The story is about Kate who lives in the American Embassy in Pakistan. At one point, Kate’s life takes a very unexpected turn in May 2011. After the exchange that results in Bin Laden’s capture and killing, The Foreign Minister is unhappy. In a strange twist, Kate becomes an unwelcome person because of her lack of involvement in the Bin Laden capturing and killing.
With Bin Laden dead, Al Qaeda wants revenge. In a quick and vortex-like set of events that will leave the reader scratching his head, Kate discovers something very dangerous. Al Qaeda apparently bought a 17-kiloton nuclear weapon. What’s worse, this massive weapon is portable putting everyone on edge. It can destroy everything within a mile’s radius of detonation. The weapon is so destructive that it can destroy most of New York City proper.
This situation makes Kate go on a journey like no other around South Asia. However, she is caught without any protection to save her. She then becomes braver than ever and continues to fight for what she believes in.
This story is layered and nuanced in such a way that you never know what is coming on the next page. It is a story that will make you think, introspect, and even wonder about Kate’s future. The story is credible and real even though it is written in the third person. It is a story that will stick with you for a very long time after he reads it.
