“The Baghdad Conspiracy” deals with the scenario of a fundamentalist terrorist organisation gaining access to chemical weapons. Considered more dangerous than nuclear arms, the chemical agents released by these weapons kill and maim indiscriminately. They are silent, largely airborne and lethal. The geographical area these weapons can affect is larger – by some measure – when compared to the area affected by the explosion of an atomic device.
There may come a time when an attack of the nature depicted in “The Baghdad Conspiracy” occurs – and succeeds. God forbid it ever does.

Part legal potboiler, part HOUSE OF CARDS dealmaking drama, part 24-esque espionage cliffhanger, FOUR SEATS is an enthralling new entry to the conspiracy thriller tradition.
“Cooley delivers again. A riveting political thriller that is somehow educational and page-turning at the same time. I didn’t know I could care this much about the appointment of judges, but Cooley took me there.”
– Dave Callaham, Screenwriter of GODZILLA and THE EXPENDABLES
“With FOUR SEATS, Aaron Cooley has softly, slyly and deservedly taken his seat beside Parker, Child, DeMille and Grisham and in the process has introduced us to a protagonist with just enough flaw to be honorably relatable and just enough hero to be vastly readable.”
– Patrick MacManus, Writer & Co-Executive Producer,
Netflix’s MARCO POLO
“Cooley writes with knowledge and skill about a shadowy world few truly understand… at times richly emotional, hilarious, and challenging… bears the hard weight of both a political and personal mystery that demands we all ultimately consider where we are, and what comes next.”
– Eric Lodal, Creator/Executive Producer, TNT’s MURDER IN THE FIRST
“Mr. Cooley has crafted a smart, tension-filled thriller reminiscent of John Grisham and Tom Clancy that exudes authenticity and kept me glued to the page. I was thoroughly riveted and found FOUR SEATS nearly impossible to put down.”
– Lee Clay, Producer, NO GOOD DEED and DEMONIC
