- DescriptionWILLIAM BERNHARDT, best selling author wrote, The Ayatollah's Suitcase is a fast paced thriller with the authority of someone who kws what he is writing about. You won't be able to stop reading until you've reached the last page. The Ayatollah's Suitcase follows Declan Sullivan back to the site of a former black op and the commitment he made to a Kurd. The man died in support his American friends, leaving behind a daughter and the dreams he held for her future. Declan accepts the call to return after the Iran-Iraq War ended. There seemed to be more blood to shed in fields where Iran used its children to walk through mine fields ahead of the troops, but regional violence persists. It turns against the Kurds. His friend's daughter needed his help and protection. He couldn't explain his reasons for leaving his wife, his colleagues, and his medical practice. He hoped to receive forgiveness when he returned. Intense secrecy surrounded the earlier mission and the suitcase that was handed over to an irascible old cleric. Declan suspects a link to Iran's nuclear program. If he is right, he won't see it again. The cleric, w an Ayatollah prays that Allah will allow him a few more years to achieve unmet goals. Declan's reappearance stands in his way. The tale opens through the eyes of the girl, Leila, w an eighteen-year-old Muslim and follower of the Ayatollah. She has become a woman in some ways and remains a child in others. She fears that Declan will die, an infidel. It is he who is in danger of damnation. She becomes protectress to her father's friend. Hell does come to Deck and his friends, but it is delivered in a form unique to the Middle East. He fights to save those whom he can, armed with the genetic inheritance of men who once defended the hills of Ireland and the money of a Seattle billionaire. His only ally is a one-armed Kurdish chess master. In the face of impending failure, he questions whether he, or anyone, can change the course of the Middle East and culture that predates Christianity. Larry writes the story based on his Green Beret experience in Iran, a recent trip to Afghanistan, and fifty years of medical practice.
