Diplomatic Security Service agent Brian Mullaney is assigned to guard the US ambassador to Israel and a lethal metal box ... both of which propel him straight into a crisis of global proportions.
Inside the box is a messianic prophecy warning about the danger of the startling peace treaty Israel and its Arab neighbors have signed.
A dark enemy known as The Turk, and the forces of evil at his command, are determined to destroy the box, the prophecy, and the Middle East as we know it. When Ambassador Cleveland gets in the way, his life is threatened--and Mullaney must act fast.
Agents of three ancient empires--including The Turk--have launched covert operations to secure nuclear weapons, and a traitor in the US State Department is leaking critical information to a foreign power.
It's up to Mullaney to protect the embassy staff, thwart the clandestine conspiracies, and unmask a traitor--before the desert is turned into a radioactive wasteland.
"Terry Brennan, a master storyteller, has created … an action-packed plot that kept me turning the pages. I hope the wait for book two won’t be too long! I’m hooked!"
