Tools of war are the largest industry in the world. The United States Congress can respond to an unexpected geo-political event by approving a multi-billion dollar defense contract in an afternoon. What if several large defense contractors decided to enlarge their market? How might they do that? One man, Luther Dupree, has manipulated events and the news media to disrupt the political process in the past, but he’s in the federal Supermax prison. Well, he was.
This fast paced international crime caper is stunning in scope as thievery and malfeasance in international banking, defense contracting and politics bring the world to the brink of war. Crisis erupts in North Korea, Africa, Pakistan, and China, and billions of dollars disappear in hastily created defense contracts. Air Force Maj. Boyd Chailland goes undercover in the Pentagon to find a fundamental flaw in our Information Technology that is being milked for profit. The trail of deceit leads to his old nemesis Dupree.
Then Boyd’s family disappears and it becomes personal; low tech versus high tech; man to man; hand to hand; accounts settled in a stunning climax at the top of the world.
