Black Skies thriller
When U.S. Secretary of State Lee Irwin Wolfe is kidnapped during a diplomatic visit to Pakistan, suspicion falls on terrorist mastermind Haider Raza. It is a mad scramble to retrieve the Secretary as Zeta Division sends Peter Conley, Code Name Cougar, to Islamabad to investigate.
Based on intelligence received from an on-ground asset in Pakistan, Zeta Division sends black operative Dan Morgan, Code Name Cobra, to Monte Carlo to follow up on an unlikely conspirator in the abduction of the Secretary: billionaire Gunther Weinberg, a German shipping magnate whose company is surrounded by dark rumors and allegations. There, the appearance of a mysterious English femme fatale throws a wrench in their carefully laid plans, but puts them on the trail of a conspiracy beyond anyone’s expectations involving corruption that cuts to the nation’s heart and deadly weapons capable of untold destruction.
A wild ride of twists and turns and nail-biting action, suspense and betrayal, Black Skies takes readers from the Pakistani hinterlands to global seats of power as Dan Morgan and Zeta Division attempt to thwart madmen who will stop at nothing to get what they want.
