The Iranian effort to develop nuclear weapons was the inspiration for this tale of spies, assassination, skullduggery, military action and political intrigue.
Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the Devil’s Disciple, and he has a plan. With twelve nuclear warheads mounted on twelve missiles, he will make Iran a martyr nation; then he will lead the world’s Muslims in a holy war against western civilization. It is up to Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini to save the world as we know it from the clutches of Islamic fascist fanatics.
As hot as today’s headlines, THE DISCIPLE is Stephen Coonts at the top of his game. Spies, soldiers, scholars, fighter pilots, patriots, traitors, presidents and ayatollahs are all here within the pages of THE DISCIPLE. Not since CUBA has Coonts written a novel as big and bold as THE DISCIPLE, a novel that catches the dreams and aspirations of a nation. THE DISCIPLE was the fourth Grafton/Carmellini novel.
