Terrance Beaven, a retired British intelligence officer, has a psychopathic hatred for the United States. In league with the Venezuelan Minister of Defense, he devises an orchestrated attack on America's infrastructure. He hides his culpability through the use of foreign mercenaries bankrolled by the Arabs and Venezuelans. The scheme appears foolproof.
The adversary Beaven never anticipated is the Defense Minister's beautiful mistress, Alma Fuentes. Desperate to escape the chaos that has become Caracas, she becomes a reluctant spy for American intelligence. It is her only path to freedom and another life. Will she discover the plot or be found out and end up in an unmarked grave? This is Alma's story but America's vulnerability is not fiction and the reader will learn how terribly exposed we really are.
