The Best 5 Books on Robert Cook
In this gripping national security thriller, Cooch and his elite entourage assemble again to choreograph the US response to Iran's plan. Smart men and even smarter women take center stage in the most exclusive inner sanctums of Washington, DC. But ultra-sophisticated computers, powerful weaponry, and technology are the real stars. Cell phones project lessons on a screen one minute and summon a drone the next, and the eponymous pulse that seeks and destroys anything with a wire or a chip, can take down the Internet, television, radio, pacemakers, and operating rooms in seconds.
Robert Cook takes us front and center into chilling scenarios in the Middle East, and into the complicated mesh of personalities at work on both sides. Whether you're a Cooch aficionado or a first-time Cook reader, you'll be swept up as the action travels from Morocco to upscale East Coast enclaves and back to the torpedo-infested waters off of Iran. You'll be on the edge of your seat as Iran receives the unmistakable message that the US is not going to sit back and watch from the sidelines.
