What do you do when your dream vacation collides with a plot for a new holocaust?
That’s the question faced by history buff and federal prosecutor Jeff Trask and his wife on what was supposed to be a bucket list getaway to Athens. They meet an old friend and CIA operator who warns them that the cradle of democracy—along with two other capital cities—has been targeted for nuclear destruction by the Islamist regime in Iran, and that the bombs—purchased from Putin’s stockpile in Russia—are set to go off in days. Trask has to decide if they will stay and try to help locate the bomb in Athens, or try to escape from Greece before it’s too late.
Marc Rainer adds another volume to the Jeff Trask award-winning crime drama series with this foray into the realm of international espionage.
"Rainer offers the eighth continent-spanning installment in his Jeff Trask thriller series, in which the hero must help avert a plan for nuclear armageddon . . . it's successful--explosively so." - Kirkus Reviews
"Marc Rainer crafts another powerful Jeff Trask novel, proving his prowess at moving the nonstop action away from American soil and onto the desks and grounds of operatives whose political and anti-terrorist objectives intersect in surprising ways. The tension is superbly developed, the motivations and secrets of opposing forces play off nicely to the point of revelations readers sometimes will see coming and sometimes will not, and the characters and their motivations come to life against a vivid backdrop of discovery and interpersonal connections."
