The Project (Paperback)
A nuclear bomb is buried in eastern North Carolina. It remains deep underground inside a limestone aquifer, beneath a 1961 B-52 crash site. The warhead is now being secretly recovered for the King of Saudi Arabia. The leader of the Sunni Muslim world has decided to by-pass his weakened American allies. He has created his own plan to address the nuclear ambitions of the Shiite Mullahs in Iran. Khalid has retained a covert American paramilitary group to use modern tunnel boring technology to retrieve the enriched uranium. They will have it processed into three smaller weapons and deliver them to Jeddah in time for the great December Hajj to Mecca. Khalid knows that if the Iranians succeed in developing nuclear weapons they will not only set off a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, but more importantly to the Saudi King, they will disrupt 'The Project, ' his thirty-year-old plan for peaceful Islamic settlement of Europe and America. But even the best laid schemes of men and kings can sometimes end in chaos, this time leaving millions of Muslims, Christians and Jews on the verge of annihilation. Taken from front-page headlines, The Project is a story of the grave dangers of the spread of nuclear technology, a royal scheme gone terribly wrong, and the redemption of a small group of American terrorists trying to save three major cities in the Middle East.
