Riassunto: Indie Book Award Finalist Best Multicultural Fiction
Paris Book Festival Honorable Mention Best Fiction
White House Director of Homeland security, Samantha Reid, receives intelligence about a possible new threat to the country's national security. The idea is staggering. What if a hostile country or group gets hold of a small nuclear device and then, instead of aiming it at one of our cities, they intend to detonate it high in the atmosphere? The result would be the creation of an Electro-Magnetic Pulse or "EMP" sending shock waves that would "fry" all electronics on the ground in its line of site. There would be no electricity, no internet, no computers...communications...transportation...refrigeration...ATMs...it would set us back to the year 1910!
Could it happen here? White House officials are too skeptical and too focused on other threats to pay attention to Samantha's warnings. The love of her life, Tripp Adams is sent on a business trip to a foreign country where just such a plot is simmering. Will Tripp become embroiled? Will he be trapped overseas while Samantha races to pull a team together to foil a sinister plot?
This gripping tale spans the globe and is filled with international action and political intrigue at the highest levels, made all too real by the author's "inside The White House" details. It gives the reader a seat at the table in the Situation Room, the meetings in the Oval Office, and the frantic search for a way out. It's a trip on a wild ride of an all-too-real scenario for the future of our country.
