From the war-torn streets of East Jerusalem and Gaza to the White House in Washington DC, showcases a fast-paced political thriller. "Retribution" is a fast-paced political thriller in which two young American Secret Service agents must stop Palestinian terrorists from assassinating the President of the United States.
A devastating suicide bomb by Hamas destroys the main courthouse in Jerusalem, despite the security protocols of the Israelis. While the Israeli authorities attempt to solve the mystery, Mustad, a Palestinian leader, has set in motion an ingenious global conspiracy that targets the American President. When two rookie Secret Service agents assigned to the Vice President on a diplomatic trip fail to protect him from injury, they are demoted. Looking to save their jobs, they race against all odds to uncover the deadly plot to kill the President and destroy the White House. The novel is replete with suspense, conspiracies, psychological twists, and intricate plots. The book sheds light on the sufferings of the innocent and poor in the chaos. The pain and agony only worsen as the people's cries remain unheard as the war of differing narratives reigns supreme. The only way to stop the atrocities is for both sides to form a peaceful allegiance and agree to end the bloodshed. Christopher Rourke aims to promote peace through his writing efforts and urges people on both sides of the spectrum to unite, putting an end to the mindless carnage.
