A nuclear missile, lost during the Cold War, is now in play--the most public spy swap in history, with a gorgeous agent the center of international attention, triggers the end-game of a corrupt Soviet Colonel's twenty five year plan. Pursued across the globe by the Russian authorities, including a brutal Spetsnaz unit, those involved will stop at nothing to deliver their weapon, and ensure their pay day, regardless of the terrifying consequences.

When Professor Laura Palmer confronts a UNICEF group for trespassing on her Egyptian archaeological dig site, she unwittingly stumbles upon the ultimate weapons deal, and becomes entangled in an international conspiracy that sends her lover, Archaeology Professor James Acton, racing to Egypt with the most unlikely of allies, not only to rescue her, but to prevent the start of a holy war that could result in Islam and Christianity wiping each other out.

If you enjoy action-packed thrillers, then don't miss Brass Monkey, a novel international in scope, certain to offend some and stimulate debate in others. Brass Monkey, from USA Today Bestselling author J. Robert Kennedy, "a master storyteller" (Betty Richard) and "one of the best writers today" (Johnny Olsen), pulls no punches in confronting the conflict between two of the world's most powerful, and divergent, religions, and the terrifying possibilities the future may hold if left unchecked.

Thanks, although this fan of JRK stories will have to pass on future eBook edisodes as the greedy publishers are charging sky high for low cost to publish eBooks now. Will just have to wait in line for library issues. Kitt

Thank you Barnes and Noble for Free Book Friday – Protocol Book #1, and introducing me to this series of books and the awesome author. I enjoyed the thrill of the adventures the professors encounter. I find once I start reading I don’t want to stop. I like that the story links a historical item of reference that is relevant to today’s headlines. This book speaks to what is happening in today’s world between Islam and Christianity. I look forward to completing this series and reading more from this author.
