When a CIA agent with a reputation as a loose cannon relentlessly pursues an international group of terrorists planning a major attack on the U.S., it’s easy to understand why his superiors shudder. In his latest political thriller, Targets of Opportunity (Gallery Books), Jeffrey Stephens does a masterful job of keeping the adrenaline flowing at warp speed–from the first page all the way to the unpredictable end!

Readers were introduced to CIA agent Jordan Sandor in Targets of Deception, the first in the series by Jeffrey Stephens, which suspense master Robert K. Tanenbaum called “a fast-paced thriller.” Now Sandor is back in Targets of Opportunity – a riveting novel many are calling ‘frighteningly realistic; a book that would make the movie of the decade.’

Whisked from Manhattan to a CIA safe house in Virginia, Sandor faces off with a top terrorist agent from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. In exchange for protection from his own side, Ahmad Jaber is offering explosive information of an unholy alliance among operatives in the Middle East, North Korea and Venezuela. While he professes not to know specific details, Jaber claims the strike will target the heart of America.

Sandor assembles a team that infiltrates North Korea, plunging him into a frenzied race against time to defeat a master terrorist’s deadly plan, all the while not knowing where or how the strike will take place.

As a storm rages in the Gulf of Mexico, word comes that two unmanned submarines have penetrated U.S. waters. With the U.S. military hampered by the hurricane, Sandor turns to a few daring U.S. Navy SEALs to duel with the enemy they cannot see“¦for now they know only that there are two nuclear weapons aimed at a target whose destruction would change the world order forever.

Targets of Opportunity captures a terrifying twenty-first century reality that terrorists can“”and will“”try as many times as they need to attack the United States. For the brave men and women who defend our country, failure is not an option. Brilliantly conceived and electrifyingly paced, Targets of Opportunity will have readers frantically turning pages to the climactic end“¦and then hoping for more of Jordan Sandor in a future novel.
