Greenwich, CT – Realism impacts every chapter of Jeffrey Stephens’ powerful stories with an energy that doesn’t quit to the very last page – and still leaves you wanting more. His latest book, Targets of Opportunity (Gallery Books) is no exception. Telling a vivid story of the real and present dangers of our modern world, it’s evident that Stephens’ did his homework – researching everything from weapons and government agencies to the secretive world of intelligence.
In Targets of Opportunity, Jordan Sandor, top CIA agent, gets dispatched to a safe house in Virginia where he faces off with a top terrorist agent from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. In exchange for protection from his own side, the terrorist offers the CIA mind-blowing information about a secret, unholy alliance among operatives in the Middle East, a ruthless South American and Kim Jong-II’s North Korea. He swears he doesn’t know specifics – just that the strike will target the heart of America.
The fanatics stage several diversions but Sandor understands how they work and he’s already heading in a different direction. Using the power of the information gained from the terrorist, Sandor puts together a small strike force to penetrate N. Korea; brave men who understand they might not all return but knowing the intelligence they gather will be vital to keeping America safe. What they end up discovering thrusts Sandor into a race against time, struggling to defeat a master terrorist with a plan of destruction so perfectly disguised that even Sandor can’t guess where or how the strike will take place!
Sandor gets word that two submarines have penetrated U.S. waters, but the military is hampered by a storm raging in the Gulf. Sandor decides to recruit the help of a few daring Navy SEALs to battle with the enemy they cannot see – all they know is that there are two nuclear weapons aimed at a target of opportunity whose destruction would change the world order forever. But for the brave men and women who defend our country, failure is not an option.
What makes Targets of Opportunity an on-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller is that it is a terrifyingly real reminder of what terrorists can, and will, try to accomplish no matter what it takes in order to attack the United States. Readers love Jordan Sandor and they relentlessly hang on to his every move – staying with him to the unpredictable end.
