Race across the globe with Dr. Cyrus Alexander as he roars to life in David Martin's inaugural novel. From the windswept steppes of Mongolia to the sweltering desert of Dubai to the rooftop bars of Manhattan, this epic thriller weaves the global political events of the past twelve years into a tapestry so close to believable that it will leave you wondering where the line between fantasy and reality is drawn. The truth is, it is true. Inside of every good conspiracy is an even better idea. Inside such an idea would be a Herculean opportunity. The perfect global coup d'etat would require the brilliance of every conspiracy to pull off, but it is possible, and it has happened. The audacity of stealing all of the G-7 assets right out from under the noses of the world's self-proclaimed elite is so amazing it would not have to be hidden. No one would believe it. A conspiracy to overthrow those powerful men alleged to be the puppet masters of the world goes beyond the imagination of most, but not all. - Leaving names like Rockefeller, Morgan, Kennedy, Rothschild, Oppenheimer, Blankfein, and Goldman scratching their heads would take genius, but it is not impossible. The plot leaves the rich and powerful wondering who in the hell had the audacity to actually use their hubris as the fulcrum to empty their collective pockets as well as their personal money machine of the Treasury of the United States. Best of all, and easiest of all is use the media - novelists like Dan Brown; networks like CNN, FOX, al-Jazeera; and BBC; and Hollywood films - to leak just enough of the truth to insure that the actual operation wouldn't require secrecy. If you convince people that what was really happening was an illusion created by the media, the truth could unfold and no one would believe it. It is a world wide conspiracy hatched in the dark back rooms playing out in the bright light of day."
