Ready the Eight
An international terrorist sends a coded message via the Internet:
Ready the eight. Materials and supplies set for assembly at all destinations. Final targets: New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Paris, Rome, Tokyo, Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv. Simultaneous detonation. Exact time for each zone to follow. Maps and sites attached. Maintain anonymity at all levels.
The Unexpected: Nadine Kanner, a former U.S. intelligence officer engaged in routine research at a think tank in the Middle East, detects and decodes the message.
The Problem: There is no clue as to where or when the strikes will take place-only that the signal to proceed was given.
Events take an unexpected turn when Kanner's son is kidnapped by terrorists close to the center of the plan. Forced to pursue the conspirators and find her son on her own terms, Kanner secures the help of a well-connected U.S. general, an Arab-American professor, and her lover-an Israeli agent who has his own agenda.
Author Jae Gordon weaves an elaborate network of deception and subterfuge that spans Europe, the Middle East, the United States and Japan, bringing this deadly conspiracy to its unpredictable climax.
