"...If you want to get any closer to the battle lines on the War on Terrorism — enlist!" - Colonel S.F. Baker, U.S. Army Commander Task Force 5-16, Operation Desert Storm
With the secret help of China, terrorists have stolen nuclear warheads from Russia's Strategic Rocket Forces. Is their peace offer to end global terrorism sincere or will the terrorists vaporize millions before America, Russia, and Israel can stop an attack?
When the Russian and U.S. military fail to locate the missing warheads, Iraq war hero and newly elected Senator Nolan Martin applies his count-terrorism experience to help the FBI find the deadly weapons – by any and all means necessary.
In the midst of all the chaos Nolen is branded a traitor for negotiating with the terrorists. But he can't tell the public he is working with the President on a secret stopgap missile defense strategy.
But Nolen and his wife Maida are fighting a second battle at home. Time is running out for their baby girl as they struggle to get answers to the unknown syndrome affecting their child.
Gold Fire is as chilling as recent headlines about the U.S.-- North Korean ballistic missile standoff.
This is a full-length counter-terrorism thriller of 357 pages and is book-3 in Ed's Gold Lust Series.
