Silkworm (Kevin Land Patrick)
Click to Read an Excerpt
Manipulation for altruistic gain masks greed. Terrorists have committed the unthinkable, nuclear and conventional attacks on the world’s vulnerable infrastructure. A group so powerful that many of the events of the last half-century may be tied to them. Elle Hardwick isn’t the standard CIA operative and her means and methods aren’t conventional. She won’t stop in her hunt for them across the globe and ultimately into the White House.

1987, the “Tanker War” escalates in the Gulf as the Iran-Iraq War moves into its 7th year. Tankers and their escorts are attacked, crashing the world’s markets. Black Monday. 2010, the unexplained Flash Crisis nearly triggers a global recession. And two years ago, nuclear terrorism against America’s vulnerable water and electrical infrastructure triggers recession and massive loss of life. Now, an attack by a rogue North Korean artillery base decimates Seoul. All the attacks are traced to one organization, led by men who hide in plain sight.

As the attacks escalate, the world’s intelligence agencies are infiltrated, compromised. For Elle Hardwick, an CIA officer unconventional in every way, the solution is simple, assemble trusted team members and go dark from Langley before the group launches an attack that will push the world into economic ruin. Hours are all that Elle has as she hunts them across the globe and ultimately into the White House.
