In addition to that, we have many big players in the book: MOIS, Mossad, US and Russia, all in it for various reasons." - Ailyn Koay, Book Reviewer


The BLIND SCORPION is a Top Secret computer program for simulating nuclear weapons explosions and the catastrophic havoc they wreak. Dr. Ross Shaheen, the developer of the software, is living the American dream. Between his internationally-recognized nuclear weapons research career at the prestigious Berkeley Lab and his picture-perfect family in the San Francisco suburbs, it's a good life that can only get better...until he is lured into lecturing before an elite group of scientists in the country of his birth: Iran.

The seven thousand mile trip takes Shaheen back to the land of the lion and the sun, yet it also delivers to Iran's very doorstep an important American citizen with a Top Secret security clearance. It soon becomes clear what the Iranians are really after: the BLIND SCORPION. The coveted software is the key to advancing their clandestine nuclear weapons program without the rest of the world being able to prove its existence. Shaheen becomes entangled in a twisted web of espionage, corruption and survival, putting to the test not only his secret knowledge but also the very core of his allegiance to the land he now calls home.

If he lives, Ross Shaheen could walk away a hero.

The question is, for which country?

Drone: A Short Story Thriller -- The Secret Behind Christopher Wall's Rise To Power (State Of Reason Mystery, A Prequel)

Now anyone can kill you anywhere! An act of terrorism. A Presidential election. A Constitutional crisis. And a terrorist who may get away scott free! It could happen again and again, perpetrated by anyone, anytime, anywhere . . . at a financial cost of next to nothing!

His name was not Shalik Sarram, but it was the name on his passport, and he entered the Customs area at JFK bearing no aerosol cans of infectious disease, no knives or scissors or weapons of any kind. He was in perfect health. He had three thousand dollars in his wallet and a credit card with a limit of five thousand which he needed to show to get into the country on a visitor's visa, but wouldn't touch.

The well-dressed Indian -- as it said on his passport, flying in from Delhi -- presented himself at Immigration Control in his elegant dark suit, his pale blue tie. Shalik was a name meant to impart an outgoing personality. He wore a happy, friendly grin on his nicely-tanned, clean-shaven face.

Anything to declare?" the Immigration man asked, scanning Shalik's passport into the computer.

Just my iPad," Shalik said, pulling the device from inside his jacket. He turned it on. Held it out.

The man shrugged. "Purpose of your visit?"

Tourism. First stop -- after my hotel," Shalik smiled, " -- the Statue Of Liberty! I can hardly wait!"

Immigration passed him through to Customs, where a female agent searched his blue roll-on bag, glancing surreptitiously at Shalik's face while she poked through his clothes, watching for the signs -- changes in breathing, posture, expression. But the man remained smiling, watching her casually as if the intrusion meant nothing.

Inside, Shalik was seething. The woman's touch was haram. Forbidden. Unpure. Fortunately, the clothes were merely a prop, cheaply purchased to create a specific persona. Once Shalik had left the airport he would throw them away.

"Okay. You're clear to go, sir," she said, flipping the fabric top, sliding the case a couple of inches toward him.

"Thank you."

Shalik zipped the bag, set it on the floor and left the airport at an even pace, looking around enthusiastically -- as if fascinated by everything he saw.

Shalik's real name was actually Sharik which he'd always thought fit him perfectly, so close was it to the English word Shark. He hated Shalik. Sharik was an Arab name! Shalik was Hindi! It was a small sacrifice. Shalik was a terrorist. Recruited and trained for a specific purpose, a mission that had already begun. He found a yellow cab. Got in. Gave an address.

Allah, let Hussan's knife be quick.

So went Akrim's silent plea as he awaited the inevitable pain that would announce the blade's cutting of his throat.

He closed his eyes tightly and held his breath, trying to remain brave in the face of his own imminent demise. Tears stung the corners of his eyes as he found fear welling up within him.

The forty-year old Akrim Al-Saddi was not ready to die.

"Hold him!"

The Imam snarled the order as he tightened his grip on the knife handle.

And then the room exploded in a cacophony of gunfire.

Akrim felt the blade drop from his throat as Hussan-Ali stumbled backwards while the other four men dove toward the cellar floor, their eyes wide with shock and fear.

At least three more gunshots echoed against the walls, the sound causing Akrim to lift both of his hands against his ears. He saw a blur of motion to his right and then he crouched low with his face against the floor as yet more gunfire erupted around him.

"Is this him?"

A familiar voice answered.

"Yes, that's Akrim. He's the one who saved me."
