In Pulse, Iran has developed a nuclear weapon and is about to use it against Israel. The US decides to preemptively attack Iran. Alejandro Cuchulain, Cooch, and his team are sent to convince the Iranians that it’s time to make nice with the world’s military hegemon. In a cover comment, former Deputy Director of Homeland Security and Commandant of the US Coast Guard, says, “Move over Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher, Cooch has taken over the helm. Cook’s best work yet … the ride is manic moments of fear, blended with sheer inspiration.”
Pulse plays out with Cooch debating the morality of the attack with the President and his staff, while he and his team try to fix mass education in the Middle East.
Team member and female protagonist, Dr. Caitlin O’Connor, is the smartest person in the room, any room, and so convinces the President. It is her data system that has predicted Iran’s nuke completion and her systems that provide effective education for the masses.
Pulse swirls through Tangier, Washington, Camp David and Tehran in an exciting blend of dynamic writing and believable plot.
