Pandora’s Grave

Watch the exciting video trailer!

An American president who will do anything to win reelection. . .An Iranian leader who will stop at nothing to bring about apocalypse. . .An ancient evil, only waiting to be reborn. . .

High in the Alborz Mountains of northwestern Iran, an archaeological team disappears. American citizens are among the missing. . .

Days later, imagery from U.S. spy satellites reveals detachments of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps descending upon the site. . .

With the presidential election only months away, President Roger Hancock authorizes a covert CIA mission into the mountains of Iran. Their objective: rescue the archaeologists and uncover the truth.

With fifteen years in the Clandestine Service, paramilitary operations officer Harry Nichols is unquestionably the man for the job. He’s a tough, ruthless veteran operator. He’s led his men into harm’s way time and again. For him, it’s all about the mission. It’s all about the team.

He’s never seen anything like this before. . .

Drawn into a web of conspiracy that reaches half-way around the world and into the highest levels of the U.S. government, he soon finds that nothing is as it seems.

The mission itself is suspect. His team can no longer be trusted.  And a misstep means world war. . .

    Stephen I am loving this book, the more I pick it up to read it the better it gets – I have always loved mystery novels, spy novels with a twist in them and this book has all that and more. It is one of those perfect books on a cold winter night or a rainy weekend where you curl up and read until you have read the entire book.

    Look forward to reading more from you. Great job.

    Hi Mr. England:
    I am half way through Pandora’s Grave and enjoying it very much! Two of the things that I like best are: (1) it is well written (With the onslaught to epublishing there are a ton of very poorly written books. I am very picky and if I find myself constantly correcting the author’s prose, I refuse to waste my time trying to get through it:) (2) Pandora’s Grave does not paint America Government as “over the top” perfect. I have read so many thrillers where the government is portrayed as perfect and can show the author’s opinion/beliefs shining right through. Thank you for the great read! I look forward to the second book, and will be buying your first novel soon.

      Thanks, Sandi. You are certainly correct–no reader should be pulled out of the story to perform editing that the author should have taken care of from the start. And our government bureaucracy is frequently as much a danger to the men on the front lines as the enemy themselves. Thanks for commenting and please let me know what you think of the ending–I welcome feedback. 🙂
