When a top Washington Post reporter discovers what he believes is an unauthorized CIA & military mission to destroy Iran's nuclear development sites, he finds himself caught in the middle of a global crisis, international intrigue, & a beautiful & exotic woman he desperately wants to trust. San Diego, California author Todd Easterling, originally discovered by the acclaimed Jay Garon-Brooke Agency of master novelist John Grisham fame, weaves a well-written, character-rich, high concept big story with cinematic potential & a balance of suspense & supporting romantic backdrop. Shawn Coyne, as Senior Editor at Doubleday/Random House, said of Todd's writing, "This is certainly a thriller that builds to global dimensions & I liked the way Mr. Easterling tackled the plot by having his journalist piece together the clues. The final revelation is also believable & consistent with the pervading paranoia in DC." The story follows Tom Lassiter in a fast paced race to separate facts from propaganda, & ends in a heart stopping glimpse of the new world we live in & threats posed by rogue states, or leaders, set on nuclear weapons development. Walking a razor-thin line between being seen as either a criminal, if he's wrong, or a hero if he's right, Lassiter takes matters into his own hands & stops at nothing to uncover the truth & try to stop a catastrophe of historic proportions. On his journey, Lassiter finds friendship and loyalty with his sidekick from The Washington Post, & unexpectedly develops a romantic interest with a British woman while interviewing key players behind the scenes. The story focuses on uncovering clues, determining who is involved & trying to avoid capture before getting the story out. In the end, Tom Lassiter finds himself & the United States in a mission to fix what he admittedly & inadvertently help set in motion. The climax of the story is vividly written, quickly paced, & lends itself to motion picture-like uncertainty & twists, with the fate of millions of people on the line, if not the survival of the entire planet.
