Los Angeles, CA, December 07, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- In White King Rising by masterful storyteller Lee Kessler, CIA analyst James Mikolas and Andrew Weir, his young Grand-master chess champion partner, discover the secret identity and location of the world’s second-most-wanted terrorist—Ayman Al-Zawahiri. Believing they also knew what strategy “the Doctor” would use to bring down the United States from within, and Who the true White King was, they set out to stop the true master of international terrorism before he triggers his doomsday scenario against the United States.
In a suspense novel taken from today’s, and possibly tomorrow’s, headlines, "White King Rising", proves to be as entertaining as it is intelligent. Readers follow the young mastermind and experienced tactical genius as they team up with a most unlikely ally to adapt an additional discipline to their bag of tricks.
“As an actress and director I did an exercise to create the back-story of Al Qaeda mastermind, Ayman Al-Zawahiri. In the process of discovering his driving motivation, I uncovered something so important that the outcome of the War on Terror depends upon it being known—something intelligence analysts, and the media analysts, appear to have missed. The result of that exercise was the prequel, "White King and the Doctor". After finishing it I saw, as events unfolded worldwide, that I needed to bring a satisfactory conclusion to the story by continuing to accurately portray a very ominous threat through the non-threatening world of fiction,” said Kessler, “Though 'White King Rising' can be read as a stand alone story, it is even better if you have the chance to read 'White King and the Doctor' to develop an even more intimate relationship with some of the characters.”
"'White King Rising' is an eloquently written sequel to 'White King and the Doctor' —a monumental revelation that will capture your emotions and keep you on the edge of your seat…Lee Kessler has done the free world a genuine favor!" — Steve Luckey, International Counter-terrorist Specialist & Security Consultant
“This fast-paced, stand-alone epic has me wondering how much of it is actually fiction. It will challenge all of your senses, and, as each page reveals yet another move in the ‘game,’ it will shock, terrify and embrace your deepest fears of what tomorrow may bring.”— Gerald R. Molen, Academy-Award Winning Producer (Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park)
