In the span of 24 hours Iran and its proxies roll out a combined nuclear and conventional assault on the Jewish State; an Israeli general, with the help of right-wing Knesset members, initiates a coup d’état; a Hamas-linked Wall Street banker makes huge bets on oil futures; and a Hamas operative on a nuclear suicide mission defies orders after meeting the love of his life hours before the attack. A tale of covert operations at the outset of a nuclear war, this smoothly crafted novel explodes into these unrelenting plots that run parallel before coalescing into a juggernaut of suspense. The history of Palestine, as a Jewish and Arab homeland, convulses the action, spurring events onto unexpected byways as millions stand on the brink of death.
Jonathan Bloomfield is an Israeli Defense Forces veteran who served in the heart of the Middle East conflict. He received bachelors and masters degrees from American universities and spent years researching the history and roots of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute. He lives in New York City.
