The Roar of the Dragon
Did you know that the Peoples Republic of China has developed MIRV'd nuclear ballistic missiles that can accurately hit targets up to 7,500 miles from their launch sites? Did you know that when the United States left the Panama Canal Zone, Hutchison Whampoa, an arm of the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army, took effective control of the Canal Zone?
The Roar of the Dragon, offers a chillingly plausible scenario of what could happen as two superpowers, China and the United States, compete on today's world stage. Set in China, Panama and the United States so much of the tale is based on fact, it's hard to remember it's fiction. Brian Maguire, a Ph.D. candidate attending UCLA, meets an exotic Chinese beauty, Lin Li Wu, and falls in love. But Lin Li and her brother Lu Chin are not what they appear to be. The children of Chinese spies they have been recruited into the family business. Colonel Brian Maguire is tapped to resurrect the Star Wars nuclear missile defense system, develop it and make it operational. The Wus are charged with acquiring the Star Wars technology for China along with a U.S. supercomputer and the race for space is on. When Maguire realizes the Chinese and Americans are in a sprint for control of the Star Wars system, he struggles to convince a disbelieving military to take on the Chinese threat before it's too late.
In The Roar of the Dragon Berry weaves a spine-tingling thriller that's sure to keep you glued to the pages well past your bedtime. The Brilliant Pebbles upgrade to the original Star Wars missile defense system he describes actually works. This Star Wars technology is still available. It would still work against missiles launched by North Korea or China. So why hasn't it been deployed?
He didn't say it hasn't been.
