Moynihan's Journey

And the Clash of Civilizations

by Leo Gher

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
The Zebeqi Nation has finally had it! 1000 years of tyranny by Sunni Muslims and their Western allies have driven Zebeqis to seek vengeance and restore the “old ways.” More than a thriller, Moynihan’s Journey is a modern drama exploring global terrorism, cultural conflict, and the human condition. His name is Tom Moynihan, hers Zara Kedar – two star-crossed lovers caught in the crossfire between clashing civilizations. When Zara defies her family, refusing a prearranged marriage for an American diplomat, she breaks with Azeri tradition and disgraces her family. Restoring honor falls to Elshan, the eldest son of the Kedar clan. But there is more at stake than a family’s name. Elshan is secretly the leader of the Zebeqis, a Shia resistance cult. From the outset, Tom and Elshan are at odds. When Elshan learns that Tom is a spy within his Egyptian military unit, he plans retribution. To complicate matters, a dangerous conflict is launched when the Coptic Pope is murdered, setting off a worldwide religious war between Christians and Muslims. Moynihan is made the head of an anti-terrorist strike force, and in the years that follow, both Tom and Elshan commit to a personal jihad that destroys friends, families, global communities – and each other.
