DREADFUL TIDINGS. The population of Vienna was paralyzed with terror; a heavy gloom weighed down all minds, and the strength of the stoutest hearts seemed broken. Couriers had arrived today from the camp of the army, and brought the dreadful tidings of an overwhelming defeat of the Austrian forces. Bonaparte, the young general of the French…
Whoever stole the nukes is leaving a trail of dead bodies behind him, but before Leah and Del can track him down they've got to figure out who wants to buy the nukes:
* Is it Holy Arabia, the fanatic Muslim government that has overthrown the House of Saud in a bloody coup?
* Is it the Fidelista exiles hiding in Miami intent on overthrowing Cuba's fledgling democracy?
* Or a domestic drug dealer in the war zone of America's cities?
* Or the rival of the Colombian Cartel boss who rules all of South America?
Together Leah and Del unravel a plot within a plot, culminating in two simultaneous races to stop the bombs from detonating. If they fail, the heart and soul of our homeland will be left in radioactive ruins.
