Well done.’- Claire C Riley, author of ‘Limerence”I love the way you handle your characters and the way you blend them into the book from the word go but in such a clever way.

Mushroom in the Sand: A Nuclear Bomb from Iran by Farsheed Ferdowsi

An Iranian-born physicist living the American dream, Dr. Ross Shaheen is at the top of his game. Between his internationally-recognized nuclear weapons research career at the prestigious Berkeley Lab and his picture-perfect family in the San Francisco suburbs, it’s a good life that can only get better – until he is lured into lecturing before an elite group of scientists in his home country.

The 7000-mile trip takes Shaheen back to the land of the lion and the sun, yet it also delivers to Iran’s very doorstep an important American citizen with Top Secret security clearance. Taken captive in a subterranean plant by Amir Meshkin, head of Iran’s secret nuclear weapons program, will Shaheen be forced to provide him with the access needed to successfully advance the Iranian nuclear agenda?

The answer lies in the twisting plot of espionage and survival, putting to the test not only Shaheen’s secret knowledge but also the very core of his allegiance. If he lives, he could walk away a hero for his country. The question is – which one?

Jury of Peers by Troy Brodsky

When Seth Meek exits the parking lot at Fort Meade, he doesn’t realize that he’ll never return to his dream job – creating unbreakable computer encryption for the National Security Agency. His is a life of comfort and delight – a loving wife, daughter, and another on the way. He has money, security, and promise.

In the space of the next twenty-four hours, however, he is stripped of everything that he holds dear. Seth watches as his family is purposefully and hatefully murdered, becomes a Federal fugitive, and faces off against the waking nightmare of taking his own life.

In shame, self-loathing, and hatred he falls back upon what he knows – computers. Now driven by his rage, and with nothing to lose, Seth embarks on a audacious quest not only to find and capture his family’s killers, but also to bring them to justice.

Seth, however, is not a killer. He is not a vigilante. He’s just Seth… a glorified computer contractor for the NSA. Using his unique skill set, he reveals his plan to put the killers on trial… via the Internet. Social media is the perfect medium for the geometric progression that he has planned. The entire world will be the Grand Jury, forced to confront their own bloodlust, sense of justice, and morality as they decide upon a verdict.
