The Rockets' Red Glare

By John Darrin & Michael Gresalfi

Thriller | eBook


al Qaeda has dirty bombs. Lots of them. WAR has soldiers. Lots of them. When they get together, there will be trouble. Lots of it. An al Qaeda team gains access to a huge supply of radioactive cesium and plans a deadly July 4th fireworks display over twelve American cities. America’s national security forces focus on al Qaeda while their allies-of-convenience, the virtually invisible soldiers of the White Aryan Resistance, are free to pursue the cataclysmic scheme. Cal Bellotta, a WMD and terror expert, and Ray Nassiri, an American Muslim and government computer genius, form a partnership that frustrates and inspires the national security apparatus as they peel away the layers of deception. The chase is on, and as Cal and Ray close in, the terrorists lash out. With just three bombs left and only hours until they explode, everyone is searching desperately. In Montana, WAR is holed up in its fortified compound, ready to defend itself against a Delta Force team. In Venezuela, al Qaeda leadership is hiding out and looking for immunity in Cuba. In Washington, panic reigns and FEMA is about to shut the city down. It’s up to Cal and Ray to stop Independence Day from becoming Doomsday.

John Darrin has worked in the nuclear industry for 40 years, initially as a radiation health and safety professional, and most recently as a consultant for companies focused on nuclear and radiological disasters and homeland security. He has worked on such unique projects as the first-ever decommissioning of a radiological research laboratory, the decommissioning of several nuclear reactors, the recovery after the Three Mile Island accident, the design and manufacture of radiation monitors for First Responders, and even on the treatment of nuclear weapons waste in China. This work has taken him all over the world, from China to Finland, from Central America to Canada, providing a wealth of experience and information that is reflected in his writings. John’s first novel, The Law of the Pack, won an international Best First Novel contest, and was followed in 2009 by Screenshot, a best-selling techno-thriller about pay-per-view Internet assassinations. In addition to his writing, John continues to consult on radiological emergency preparedness and response, and participates in professional groups planning for such incidents. Dr. Michael Gresalfi has more than 30 years of proven expertise in leading both national-level strategic policy and planning initiatives. He has substantive experience advising senior decision-makers, including Federal agency senior executives and corporate leadership. Over the last four years, while collaborating on the development of this book, Dr. Gresalfi was a contractor for the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Lab. Since 9-11, he has provided significant operational and planning support to a wide range of offices and clients within the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration, as well as within both the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which are agency-level components of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. His focus remains on strengthening our national capacity to prevent, protect and respond to weapons of mass destruction threats and attacks upon our Homeland by terrorist groups and rogue nations. He received his Ph.D. in Public Policy from George Washington University, in Washington, DC.
