The Golden Arrow
The second novel in the Adam Chin Trilogy
Iran’s mullahs will do anything to possess a nuclear missile that can destroy Israel and with it, the reputation of its ally, the United States. Confronted with a weak and vacillating US president, whose only response to nuclear terror is endless multilateral talks, the mullahs move decisively to implement a sophisticated international financial strategy to fund their ambitious nuclear program. They are assisted in attaining this goal by their increasingly Islamist ally, the Republic of Turkey. Long viewed as a staunch secular ally of the West, Turkey has decided — in the face of an irresolute US — that it must play its own foreign policy game in the increasingly byzantine, Islamist world of Middle East power politics.
