Point of Entry
A NovelBook - 2006 | 1st ed
A terrorist attack on the United States is imminent. Renegade Syrian intelligence operatives have found the most effective way of smuggling forty pounds of uranium-235 -- the key material needed to build an atomic weapon -- into the United States undetected. With calculated cunning, the terrorists hit upon exploiting a network of the most experienced, sophisticated smugglers the world has ever known....
As the CIA repeatedly misinterprets numerous intelligence warnings, only the irresistible Marta Pradilla -- Colombia's beautiful, tough new female president, who has become a close friend of the conservative, isolationist U.S. president, John Stockman -- can help the United States find the terrorists and their deadly cargo before they can breach the point of entry, before it's too late.
Set in Washington, D.C., Bogotá, Rome, and Tbilisi, and featuring appearances by major international figures such as Fidel Castro and the presidents of France, Syria, and many others, Point of Entry propels readers into an intensely treacherous world that reads less like fiction every day. From remote international borders to covert government operations on the highest level, it is ultimately a story about the consequences of crossing boundaries. It is about the personal relationship between two world leaders that traverses beyond the politically acceptable and the porous borders that may not be able to protect millions of innocent lives from the murderous intent of those with nothing to lose.
