For The Brave Men And Women Who Defend Our Country - Failure Is Not An Option
Greenwich, CT, July 9, 2012 - 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’ once again did his homework, researching everything from weapons and government agencies to the secretive world of intelligence. Stephens is a natural born, great storyteller who has been endorsed by the #1 New York Times best-seller, Vince Flynn.
Stephens’ book tells the story of top CIA agent, Jordan Sandor, who gets mind-blowing details about a secret alliance among operatives around the globe from a notorious terrorist agent in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard - in exchange for protection from his own side. There are no specifics; just that the strike will target the heart of America.
Using details from the terrorist, Sandor puts together a small strike force of brave men (who realize they might not all return) to penetrate one of the operatives. They uncover intelligence that thrusts Sandor and a few Navy SEALS into a race against time to thwart a plan of destruction that would change the world order forever.
Targets of Opportunity is a terrifyingly real reminder that terrorists will stop at nothing to attack the United States.
