Beck Casey must stop a blue-eyed terrorist from triggering a nuclear holocaust-in a pulse-pounding thriller that "hits you like a freight train" (Shane Gericke). Former CIA op Beck Casey had thought he was done with the world of espionage and could comfortably settle into academia. But his country needs him-again. Nuclear terrorism poses an imminent threat to the United States, and to deal with this national security nightmare, Casey's going to need all the help he can get. A rising star in the FBI's Counter-Terror Division, Jeffrey Connor has been tasked to lead a desperate hunt for the elusive "blue-eyed terrorist." He also happens to be in love with DC lawyer Katie Casey, Beck's beloved daughter. Dennis Littrell is an ambitious journalist who's just stumbled on a story that might save his nation and the world-or could lead to a devastating global conflict. And then there is Fatima Huntsman, the daughter of a Palestinian activist and an American woman, now radicalized as a terrorist and armed with a nuclear device. From its tense opening on the US/Mexican border and chilling portrayal of the human-smuggling trade through the war-torn Middle East to a climax in Washington, DC, as Armageddon looms, Fire of the Prophet "hits you like a freight train, then drags you along for the ride . . . [with] terrific writing, strong characters, and just plain excitement. Don't miss it!" (Shane Gericke).
