About the Book
In Global Countdown, Leland Attaway´s thrilling novel of international intrigue and global terrorism, nuclear expert Michael Adams and his redeemed terrorist lover fight to prevent nuclear disaster. They struggle to reverse nuclear power plant melt-down and defuse thermonuclear intercontinental missiles, while negotiating a political settlement between global terrorists and the American President. Their battle culminates in a terrifying, wrenching global countdown.

In Leland Attaway´s novel the undeveloped nations explode in an attempt to save themselves from extinction, seizing world-wide nuclear weapons of mass destruction. They demand economic aid and new globalization policies, an end to global warming, and an end to a resurgent nuclear arms race which is exhausting global resources necessary for their survival. This is the next wave of terrorism, dwarfing 911, Afghanistan and Iraq; it is secular and has world-wide support.

In the author´s vision of the future, the American President is forced to defend against a thermonuclear missile attack and to find a politically acceptable compromise with the terrorists. Great powers manipulate the crisis to advance their own geopolitical designs, threatening World War Three. And one man and his lover fight to defeat a global wave of nuclear terrorism-a world-wide secular rebellion instigated by Western globalization policies. In the real world the clock is ticking to the 2008 Presidential election. Will the United States elect a statesman with the intellect and stature necessary to correct those misguided policies? Read Global Countdown and learn what hangs in the balance.
