In 2007 two CIA spooks meet with an American colonel in military intelligence. The war is going badly, and President Bush, who steadfastly refuses to back down, remains unchallenged at home as Democrats and Republicans continue to toss verbal grenades, positioning themselves for the 2008 elections. Meanwhile, Iran’s pursuit of nuclear energy will yield enriched uranium within five years—uranium that can be used to manufacture suitcase nukes. The United States military is too drained to invade Iran, and a preemptive strike is out of the question; unless, that is, a nuclear detonation were to occur in an American city—one in which the uranium can be traced back to Iran. A US reprisal would strike a death blow to radical Islam, quell the insurgent violence in Iraq, and yield more oil. Yes, the cost is unthinkable, but sitting back and doing nothing could result in a dozen suitcase bombs going off in a dozen American cities, bringing with them anarchy and the collapse of Western civilization.
December 2011. Ashley “Ace” Futrell is an oil expert working for PetroConsultants and married to Kelli Doyle, a former National Security advisor and one of the CIA spooks in the 2007 meeting. When Kelli threatens to expose the plot, Ace finds his existence hurtling down a rabbit hole of deceit in which the orchestrated lies of the powerful few could lead to the darkest days of human existence and the death knell for billions.
