For years, the global manufacturing giant, China, pushed its resources to the limit, until it became clear that without more oil to maintain their manufacturing infrastructure and a burgeoning population, they would face implosion and civil disorder on a mass scale. When negotiations with Iran, to pipeline more oil to China, goes awry, China launches an overwhelming military strike to commandeer the oil fields - believing that no other nation will come to Iran's aid. Three days into the assault, a desperate Iranian leader issues China an ultimatum, stop the invasion or face a nuclear strike. China dismisses the threat as a hoax and presses on. When the nuclear warhead finally spears into the sky on a trajectory for Beijing, and as the Chinese ballistic defense system fails to stop it, the world stands still. In just eight minutes, the time it takes for the missile to span the Asian continent, world leaders are helpless to do anything, and meanwhile North Korea shackles America by threatening them with nuclear reprisal if they interfere. As the global stage is set for World War III, Mateus Cordozo, a bio-engineer who is vacationing on a desolate beach in Portugal, finds himself sharing a bottle of wine with an oddly beautiful and strange woman who shockingly informs him of the impending debacle, and tells him that he and his team alone, possess the means of preventing it from happening. Daunted by both incredulity and his own haunting mid-life crisis, Mateus refuses to accept any of it. As the clock ticks down on Earth, and as Serena desperately tries to convince him to act in time, the world prepares for the inevitable - nuclear war.

Message From The Author: I write existential thrillers. What does that mean?
My thrillers, which include a thriller crime series, several (so far) geopolitical and sci-fi thrillers, while containing all the elements of a thriller, with suspense and mystery, even romance, have a thread in them - they are thematically driven by a questioning undercurrent which challenges the mediocrity we live in.
I have never accepted the answers to our existence as fact, because if they were fact, moreover, truth, I think we, individually and collectively-speaking, would have a better grip on ourselves and our world. Ignorance is not inbred, it is manufactured. Hatred and racism are not innate qualities, they are indoctrinated in people by cultural "norms".
My aim is to entertain readers, to open doors inside their minds, to invoke a revolution of thoughts and ideas and to help inspire the culture.
