My latest book introduces a new protagonist. Roman Hawk gained his name early in life after his Iranian parents were killed in a horrible automobile accident. At the age of eighteen, Roman enters Notre DameUniversity on a football scholarship.
After graduation, Roman spends eight years with the country’s FBI before being recruited by the CIA. His first assignment sends him to Moscow to recover confidential records of a new army rifle that fires smart bullets acquired by a mafia kingpin only known as the Chairman. While in Moscow, Roman discovers that the Chairman is involved with General Giorgio Levshinsky in the secret construction of a suitcase nuclear weapon for Iran.
One month before Yom Kippur, Mossad Director Aaron Levy receives a letter saying that at one minute after midnight on their Day of Atonement, a nuclear blast will take place somewhere in Israel.
The rest of the story concerns Roman chasing after the shipment of this nuclear weapon through Iran on its way to Israel assisted by Mossad agent, Rina Kol. In the end, they lose track of the weapon. The story’s climax occurs at midnight with sixty seconds before the scheduled nuclear explosion.
