Los Angeles & New York (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
Peter Thomas Senese's historical fiction E-book THE DEN OF THE ASSASSINnow available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for Kindle and Nook E-readers catapults the reader into the dark world of terrorism, where war mongers and traders of fear and evil seek to destroy the West's way of living and ideology through chemical, biological, and cyber-warfare.
The Den of the Assassin tells a story of how countries including Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran - seek a new world order that would alter America's presence on the global stage. Senese's compelling geopolitical thriller suggests there is no better way to shift the balance of power than to use a nation's own technological innovations and warfare capability against it by taking control of computer systems that control its infrastructure or military capacity and using that capability against itself.
Peter Thomas Senese commented, "In the wake of Iran's alleged cyber hijacking of a top-secret American drone spy aircraft, the realities of America and the West's vulnerabilities were highlighted, as the subject matter presented in THE DEN OF THE ASSASSIN that much more of our reality. In fact, Iran's recent possession of the American drone spy plane presents a conundrum regardless if cyber-espionage was used or not. Obviously, if Iran, with Russia's assistance, was able to take possession of an in-flight military aircraft from a remote location, which is what Iran appears to be claiming, then they have sent a very dangerous message to the United States and our allies that America and our allies are not the only nations capable of cyber-deployment as perhaps demonstrated during the recent destruction of Iran's nuclear power plant that supposedly was destoryed via cyber means at the hands of Isreal with the assistance of the United States. This very issue is the basis of the 'what if's' presented in THE DEN OF THE ASSASSIN.
"Clearly nations such as Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea are racing to the cyber-and biological warfare battlefront. In a world of cyber-warfare, is it conceivable that a nation's own weaponry could be used against itself? Absolutely. Is our existing electronic highway vulnerable to cyber-terrorism and cyber-warfare? Absolutely. And all of this - the balance of power in today's moodier world, with Russia, and Iran and China - and the concern of biological, chemical, and cyber-warfare is THE DEN OF THE ASSASSIN."
Critics have praised Peter Thomas Senese's THE DEN OF THE ASSASSIN.
Renowned critic Daniel Jolley said of "The Den of the Assassin," "This is one seriously good thriller. Billed as "a novel of international finance and espionage," Den of the Assassin is a super-realistic exploration of frightening possibilities, unsurpassed heroism, Lucifer-like evil, and terrorism of the worst kind ... Peter Thomas Senese displays a wealth of knowledge of geopolitics, espionage, and international finance, describing all the technical intricacies of the story's elements and implications with great attention to detail -without ever letting the pace get bogged down or become confusing to the reader. He also keeps a number of secrets close to the vest, saving them for just the right time in the story. This serves to make the book thoroughly believable and increasingly suspenseful. There's no shortage of action here . . . Many a writer of thrillers seem to drop the ball somewhere in the middle of their novels, but Peter Thomas Senese's knowledge of geopolitics, international finance, and 21st century terrorist threats keeps the fires of detailed complexity and story evolution stoked and red-hot for the entire ride. Tyler Boxter is no James Bond, but "The Den of the Assassin" proves to be just as exciting as any 007 caper - and much more realistic."
