Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) March 14, 2012

From the book:

The world is shocked as Iran’s newest and most powerful destroyer, the Shaheed, explodes and sinks on its maiden voyage, killing a full cadre of VIPs, including a dozen of the most powerful clerics in Iran. The ship’s executive officer, Commander Mohsen Saeed of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy, ashore during the explosion, frantically works to uncover the truth behind the sinking of his ship. Meanwhile, accusations of blame for the incident bring the US and Iran to the brink. As the net of pursuit draws ever closer, the CIA struggles to get Saeed and his family out of Iran before they are caught and executed in cold blood, and the US and Iran go to war over Irans nuclear program.

Advance Praise for Hollow Strength:

Douglas Frantz, author of the bestselling Nuclear Jihadist,” two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee, and former managing editor of the LA Times, describes Hollow Strength with just two words: “Eerily accurate.”

Jeff Stein, author of A Murder in Wartime,” former “Spy Talk” intelligence columnist for the Washington Post and Spy Talk blogger, says: Art Keller has definitely been there, done that. As a former CIA operative in the agency division responsible for tracking black market nuclear weapons, he has seen enough to make his hair stand up straight permanently, and in ‘Hollow Strength’ he’ll make yours stand up, too.
