The Plutonium Prophet is a fast-paced, far reaching adventure-thriller. A story based upon true happenings and real people, one that is torn from today’s events, one you will not soon forget. Dr. Joseph Hanna has suffered much at the hands of those who use religion as a weapon. America's finest Middle East spy, he's sent to defeat the newly appearing Islamic Messiah, called al-Mahdi. Shadowing the American's movements, however, is Israel's most skilled and deadly assassin, Captain Rachel Ram. Though tasked to kill Joseph Hanna, she soon learns that they've crossed paths before, drawing them together as allies and lovers, but also threatening to destroy them both. No book takes you deeper into the intrigue, passion, and adventure of today's changing, even mutating, Middle East. The Plutonium Prophet opens to you an entirely new world you did not know existed, often ugly, more often beautiful. The Plutonium Prophet shows how the world today can, and often does, hinge on the life and love of a single man and woman, and how the courage of a woman, the love of a man, and a hard-fought friendship nurtured in distant lands, can defeat tyranny and alter history. Based upon real-life events, this is the story of a willing, capable man, and an injured, struggling, yet determined woman. This is also the story of our time, immersing you into the modern Middle East in ways no adventure-thriller has yet done. Readers' comments confirm: “Chillingly real. Now I understand why we can’t ignore what’s happening in the Middle East and survive as a nation.” Another: “When I finished the book I felt torn from some of my closest, most intriguing, friends. So, what comes next?” What comes next, in fact, will redefine the Middle East in ways no one expects, the literal pivot-point for the world's future and either bring peace and prosperity never before seen in our history, or destroy all that we are or ever will be. The Plutonium Prophet is guaranteed to rock your world, showing how our future depends upon the choices we make today. And as with the principal characters in this adventure-thriller, we won't get a second chance, for life or love.
