In 2038, geopolitical powers are on the verge of war, nuclear weapons threaten our very existence and global consumption is depleting the Earth. Several nations band together to launch a mission to colonize the first habitable exoplanet, but no one bothered to ask the obvious question: “Is there someone else there already?” One man is about to find out the truth and what he discovers will change the course of humanity and its role in the Universe.
A geopolitical and existential thriller!
As a brutal war erupts on the other side of the globe, Mateus Cordozo, a bio-engineer, unaware that the conflict is rapidly approaching a melting point, is vacationing in his hometown of Afife, Portugal. He’s trying to find balance again, some sense of meaning in his life, so he leaves everything in his hotel room, buys a bottle of wine, some cheese and a pack of cigarettes and sits alone on a desolate and blustery beach as far away from people as he possibly can. His solitude is broken when a strange and beautiful woman comes along and suddenly changes everything. Mateus soon discovers that their meeting was not by chance, and that she has come to show him how he can and must play a critical role in stopping the imminent global nuclear debacle that is only hours away from happening; moreover, she reveals things to him which will alter the course of humanity.

Order Twilight Visitor: HERE
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.
