McAllen, Texas (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
Since the September 11th attack on the World Trade Center, the people of the United States have been acutely aware of Jihad terrorism. Jihad terror, however, was alive and well for many years previous to that attack. Based in Europe in the mid-1980s, "The Afghan File Affair" (published by iUniverse) by Arthur Kasper describes the adventure and mystery surrounding a couple in love whose world is ripped apart by Afghani Islamist Jihad terrorists.
Protagonists Nick Gamble, a journalist, and Natalia Caparosso, a CIA agent, are threatened with death if they do not turn over a secret film to the Arab terrorists with ties to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda led by Imad al-Kaissouni.
When Natalia goes missing, Nick is determined to find the woman he loves, but it turns out she has been kidnapped by Italian mobsters in the employ of Arab terrorists. The ransom is a piece of film he’s never heard of, one that exposes the names of Arab terrorists trained in East Germany and sent undercover to America in an effort to install Muslim Sharia law. Natalia will be executed if the film is not recovered, but Nick has no clue where to start looking.
With the help of the American mafia and Italy’s secret police, Nick’s comfortable life as a journalist is turned upside down as he learns the truth about terrorist cells in Europe and their horrific plans for the future. He is driven to save Natalia, but the reality of the Arab master plan is much more terrifying than anyone could have expected.
