This is just a story of fiction and could never happen... Or could it? Terrorists have America in their cross hairs. NSA agent Sam Steele must put the puzzle pieces together, acting outside the law and behind his superior's back to counter the international conspiracy. As crises erupt across the United States and things heat up on volcanic island La Palma, Sam can only turn to one mana Jessie Martin. These two men will play a global game of espionage across oceans and continents. Ra'id, the Iran-Iraq war veteran, is filled with a righteous anger toward the great Satan, America. Bending his terrifying intellect toward a diabolical purpose, Ra'id uses his international influence to manipulate events across the world in order to bleed off America's military strength until his fatal finale on January 17a the day of the State of Union address. Prioritizing diplomacy over security, the vice president's decisions force Jessie and Sam to illegally pursue intelligence that will substantiate an assault on Ra'id's organization. It's a race to the finish line as the State of the Union address draws nearer. If Ra'id and his terrorist minions succeed, the winds of change will sweep across the globe, and the political and ecomic poles of the world will shift. The stakes are high and the personal sacrifices even higher as new author William White explores Retribution's Price.
