Kiloton Threat

Scheduled to release on 9/1/2011
Kiloton Threat is the sequel to Danger Close and offers up more “on the edge of  your seat” action and military suspense that readers enjoyed in Danger Close.   If you enjoy military fiction, you’ll once again get your fill of covert operations as Blake Kershaw, a U. S. Special Forces officer explodes onto the scene.  The book starts with Blake jumping out of a plane over the Persian Gulf, planning to infiltrate enemy territory and from there, the action never seems to slow down.  

Where Danger Close has Blake going undercover inside an al-Qaeda camp in Pakistan, Kiloton Threat has him confronting the threat of the Iranian nuclear program.   If you’re unfamiliar with military terms and jargon, these stories might be a little hard to understand but for fans of military fiction, I’d say the authors struck gold with this second title.

Product Description

Taken from what could be tomorrow's headlines, Kiloton Threat is a novel that explores the frightening potential of nuclear weapons in the Middle East today. Out of the house churches of rural Iran, a Christian masquerading as a Muslim gains the confidence of a high-ranking leader in the Iranian nuclear program and opens his eyes to Christianity. The man’s newfound faith stirs his desire to flee to the West, taking with him intelligence that would allow Coalition forces to neutralize his nation's devastating capabilities. But no one in such a position could ever escape unnoticed.

Enter Blake Kershaw, a highly trained U.S. Special Forces officer who has already made extraordinary sacrifices for his country that include faking death and losing his true identity. His mission to infiltrate Iran and extract the high-value defector strains the relationship with the woman he loves—one of the few people on earth who knows his real story. With even more intensity, it shows the price that must sometimes be paid when political correctness fails and a man has to stand up for what is right.
