When the CIA receives fragmentary warnings of a horriffic terrorist plan...called “Operation Deadly Rain" by al-Qa’eda...university researchers secretly developing the “StarSight” artificial intelligence terrorist strike prediction program are abruptly torn from their comfortable academic lives and thrust into the frontline of the war on terrorism. |
The uncompleted “StarSight” appears to be the only threat to the success of the terrorist attack. And, the terrorists know it! The stage is set for savage conflict, and desperate measures on both sides.
Tony Shane, his beautiful research associate, Sarah, and a handful of university co-workers are exposed to deadly sabotage attempts by terrorist agents…while being condemned by academic colleagues for conducting secret CIA research.
Because of his support for the StarSight project, U.S. Senator Gerald Moorhouse is targeted by the unsuspected force behind "Deadly Rain"...a wealthy and respected American citizen and close friend of the Senator and his wife.
This adventure takes the reader from the comfort of the “halls of ivy” to the exotic settings of San Francisco, Zurich, Washington, and the Italian Riviera, while the lethal conflicts of the StarSight team and the terrorist agents build to a heart-stopping climax.
