In my book, Twilight Visitor, a contemporary thriller and fiction based on very real circumstances facing our world today, especially with nuclear proliferation back on the rise, China, desperate to feed its teetering energy infrastructure, suddenly and brutally invades Iran to take over its oil fields. Overwhelmed by the attack, the Iranian leader is pushed to the edge and finally does the one thing that no one expected would happen – he fires a nuclear warhead at Beijing, informing them that they have 8 minutes to put a halt to their invasion, or else. Some will say, “See, I knew it, Iran had nukes…” Actually, that wasn’t the point of my book, and in the end, the outcome is not what you think – not at all. It was clearly my purpose to put a spotlight on an issue and a major propaganda campaign propagated mostly by the US intelligence and military establishment, making Iran out to be a threat to world order and peace should they ever get their hands on nuclear weapons. Twilight Visitor presents an entirely different scenario, and its true message is not what it appears at the beginning of the book. With that disclaimer, I invite you to read the book with an open mind and take a different perspective, because it is my belief that the real enemies to world peace are not sitting in Iran – far from it.
