Description
AN ANCIENT CIVILIZATION WIELDS TODAY'S ULTIMATE WEAPON.... Afghanistan, tumultuous land of sword and blood, now holds the key to nuclear Armageddon. Afghan "Soldiers of God" have stolen Russia's most devastating bomb, and they'll unleash its terrible destructive powers if the West doesn't bow to their demands. At stake is a vast area that spans unstable, sacred, and explosive territories in Africa, the Middle East, Pakistan, and the former Soviet Union. Only a handful people have the know-how, expertise, and courage to stop the zealous rebels: a U.S. team flying a modified P-3 Orion. One man, one woman, and a veteran Russian Special Forces expert launch an "impossible" mission that ultimately carries them to one of Islam's holiest shrines--where the power of humanity is pitted against the power of science in an absolutely thrilling climax to the newest edge-of-your-seat technothriller by Robin A. White. "White is a fine writer, blending his own flying experience with an active imagination." --The Ocala Star-Banner "A WRITER WITH A BRIGHT FUTURE." --Stephen Coonts
