About this product
- DescriptionJamal Hassim is a respected Air Force major. Ahn, his brilliant Philippine wife, is a leading scientist at the Centers for Disease Control. For years, they've operated a successful Islamic charity in partnership with the U.S. AID program. But when the NSA accidentally picks up a suspicious phone call, the true purpose behind their charitable work takes on a sinister and deadly cast. Are the Hassim's using tax dollars to finance a devastating terrorist attack on U.S. soil? Or are they well intentioned aid workers whose private words have been misunderstood? The FBI sends Conner Skilling, an experienced co-operating witness domiciled in East Asia to find out. On the remote South Pacific island of Vanuatu, Skilling uses his considerable skills as a retired con man to orchestrate a series of taped conversations in an effort to probe the Hassim's motives. But is this taped evidence trustworthy, or just a ruse to deflect attention from a more dangerous plot? A series of spellbinding clues based on fact and fiction reveal a criminal conspiracy that includes an internationally famous businessman with a taste for danger, a phony sheikh, hundreds of stolen surface to air missiles, pump and dump stock fraud on Wall Street, a rouge detective from Brooklyn, and a trail of betrayal and deceit that reaches into the uppermost sanctums of the Justice Department. Inspired by the true exploits of a financial criminal turned informant, this action-packed legal thriller takes readers on a wild ride through board rooms in Australia, plantations on forgotten Pacific isles and into a New York City courtroom in pursuit of the shocking truth.
