Description

India is a country divided, torn by religious strife and hounded by potential invaders on all sides. The world’s most powerful governments believe that whoever controls India holds the strategic advantage for global domination. As the chaos spins out of control, a name resurfaces after centuries of obscurity: Akbar.

Once a religious zealot who created his own dominant religion in the region, Akbar has returned, if not in body, then at least in spirit. Beeker, the leader of the fearsome Black Berets, wants nothing to do with a tangle of religious fanatics—until he learns they’ve stolen two atomic bombs they intend to use in their new holy war. Suddenly the mission’s far-reaching, devastating implications become impossible to ignore. The Black Berets are the world’s best hope.

Author Bio
Mike McCray

Mike McCray was a pseudonym shared by John Preston and Michael McDowell. John Preston was a pioneer in the early gay rights movement and publishing initiatives and the author or editor of more than twenty-five acclaimed books. Along with the Black Berets series, he wrote numerous entries in Gold Eagle’s Soldiers of Barrabas series under the pseudonym Jack Hild. As Preston McAdam, he wrote the three books in the Michael Sheriff: The Shield series. Michael McDowell wrote many successful novels under his own name, cowrote four novels under the pseudonym Nathan Aldyne (with Dennis Schuetz), and his screen credits include Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Thinner, and episodes for a number of television horror anthologies. Unfortunately, they both died at an early age due to complications related to AIDS.
