Twilight's Last Gleaming: Updated Edition (Paperback)
This is a chilling high-concept geopolitical thriller where a declining United States and a resurgent China come to the brink of all out nuclear war.
The year is 2025. Oil is the black gold that controls the fortunes of all nations and the once-mighty United States is down to the dregs. A giant oil field is discovered off the Tanzanian coast and the newly elected US president finds his solution to America's ailing economy. While the United States blindly plots and plans a regime change in this hitherto insignificant African nation, Tanzania's allies--the Chinese--start their own secret machinations. The explosion that follows shatters a decades-old balance of global power and triggers a crisis on American soil that the United States may not survive.
Political conspiracies, military maneuvers, and covert activities are woven together in this fast-paced, gripping novel that paints a stark warning of an uncomfortably likely future. Originally published in 2014 by Karnac Books (9781782200352)
