A Philadelphia native and Pacific Northwest resident, Bonnie Baehr, an amateur Middle East historian, has completed her first book, “Saladin's Falcon,” an Iran-Contra era political thriller that focuses on two Libyan soldiers, friends and brothers-in-arms, who must make agonizing choices; and a young aide to the U.S. National Security Advisor faced with untangling an international web of intrigue and deciphering the meaning of a mysterious symbol before political tension becomes all-out war.

Published by Page Publishing, Bonnie Baehr's mesmerizing story tackles some heavy issues pervasive during the late 1980s: the rise of militant Islam, the stirrings of international terrorism, and an unofficial American doctrine that is best paraphrased as "an enemy of my enemy is my friend."

As readers span the globe, they will encounter real news-making historic events, including the Iran-Contra scandal, the Chernobyl nuclear reactor meltdown, and the United States’ arms-for-hostages deals, seen through the lens of both U.S. foreign policy and the personal choices of men who must come to terms with events beyond their control.

In a race against time, whom to trust and whose intentions are pure are elusive and vital pieces of a puzzle that might place in jeopardy the very survival of the United States.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “Saladin's Falcon” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
