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 etat; 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.
