The Enemy of My Enemy

by Richard Caldwell View author's profile page


While in Monte Carlo, a brilliant Saudi playboy starts having dreams and auditory hallucinations. During these visions, he believes that the Archangel Gabrial is commanding him to resurrect a modern-day Caliphate, establish a new Islamic world order and become the first global Caliph. As the frequency and intensity of his dreams increases, he starts hearing a single, overpowering voice which lays out a plan for horrific terrorist attacks against the United States. The plan centers around a plot to attribute the attacks to North Korea forcing the United States to retaliate. The result will be an all-out nuclear war with China and Russia. The 21st Century Caliphate will emerge from the ashes of this exchange, subjugate or destroy surviving infidels, and establish its Caliph as the undisputed ruler of the planet. At the same time, a despised, increasingly unstable POTUS loses a bid for a second term in office. The POTUS vows revenge and intends to immortalize himself as the president who surgically removes a "tumor of a dictator" before a new administration takes office. He has the determination and commands the military might to do so. He also has a radical strategy to contain the conflict and to restore what remains of North Korea once the dust settles. These forces run parallel until they intersect at a terrifyingly plausible, explosive conclusion.


An alarming thriller, teetering on the edge of becoming non-fiction.
