“Through a highly convincing plot with credible characters and realistic conversations between them, Ray Collins masterfully presents a fast-paced national security threat scenario directed against the United States. Devoid of unexplained acronyms and the hyperbole that sometimes plague stories of this national security nature, this refreshingly readable book delivers highly memorable scenes throughout. (Movie script writers, take note!)

“With sharp prose, terse drama, and short chapters, it’s positively evident that Collins has skillfully combined his James Pattersonesque writing style with his several years of service as a US diplomat. I thoroughly enjoyed—and highly recommend—this exceptional high-stakes global thriller!”
