Trailing his IRA bomber uncle, journalist Michael Shea stumbles onto the biggest story of his life: a plot to smuggle nuclear material into Iran. Discovered and marked for death, Shea flees the Iranian secret service. His only help comes from the beautiful mystic Neda Ghazali, a member of the ancient sect of the Golden Dawn. For centuries, the sect has guarded a secret prophecy of the End Times--a prophecy that international terrorists and Iran's president are exploiting for their own gain. Shea leaves a trail of bodies behind as he rushes to reveal the truth--before Neda's cataclysmic prophecy comes true.At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
Journalist Kostigen's first novel, a fast-moving thriller with a strong sense of place, suffers from too many plot elements: a brutal Irish terrorist, a brutal Chechen terrorist, the Second Coming of Christ, the Coming of the Mahdi, the end times, stolen nuclear material, a beautiful female in peril, a hero with a dark secret, all manner of sexual deviancy, Zoroastrianism, a madman president of Iran, and various religious evildoers. Michael Shea, British News's star foreign correspondent, has been searching for years for his IRA bomber uncle, Sean O'Shaughnessy, whom he finds in Iran. Iranian president Mahmoud Talib has recruited O'Shaughnessy along with Chechen terrorist Alu Abramov as part of a plot to detonate a nuclear weapon and achieve world domination. Toward this end, Talib's personal assassin, Iranian secret agent Zhubin, chases Shea and Shea's love interest, Neda Ghazali, around the globe, leaving countless bodies in his wake.
