Description

After he had to hand back his Pulitzer Prize due to a massive cover-up scandal, Ron Wright's reputation as a journalist with the Washington Post crashed and burned, taking his marriage with it. Despite being out of the game, Ron never lost his nose for trouble. And as all good reporters know, sometimes trouble gets the scoop on you instead of the other way around. After receiving a cryptic message from an old friend, Ron takes the first train from Washington DC to New York City - and quickly finds himself in a deadly chase after a long-trusted news source ends up dead in a mysterious accident near his home in Paris. Wright, thrust into the lead of a lifetime, must unlock one of the most deeply hidden cover-up secrets of the modern era: Saudi Arabian royalty has long provided funding for a powerful group in America...funds that have been accumulating to launch the single most vicious attack on American soil. Beginning in France and stretching across the Middle East, Ron Wright must enlist the help of a beautiful journalist from Al-Jazeera to uncover the story of the century.
Dodging flying bullets, running from international terrorists, and doing his best to escape those who would stop his story from ever reaching print, Ron - who used to feel the most comfortable behind a computer - now finds himself under the gun...and the term "deadline" may soon have a whole new meaning.
