Requiem for the Dead, Victor Alvarez. Black Rose Writing. ISBN: 978-1-944715-58-8
Requiem for the Dead is the ultimate fictional revenge fantasy. A so-called CIA Operative is captured by the North Korean Government and the operative’s father, an American general, asks the White House to intervene. The White House ignores the father’s pleas. After his son is tortured for three years and finally murdered, the father’s plot for revenge goes into hyper mode. His plan, to revenge his son’s needless death, is to kidnap several of the children of high-ranking generals in the U.S. European Command in order to force the Army to implement a first-strike plan against North Korea. An attack that does not require permission of the President. An American attack might cause China to enter the fray which would cause a global conflict.
Special Agent Jacqueline Sinclair and DIA Agent Tom Price are assigned to find out why the children are disappearing. Pursuit of the kidnappers will lead right into the middle of the military establishment, where conspiracy and intrigue rule the day. Add two nuclear smart-bombs into the mix and the President along with the North Korean Regime and you have a spine tingle of an adventure.
The investigative duo find themselves in enemy territory and become the targets of trained killers. Courage and skills are necessary as they are sorely tested while they attempt to find justice.
