A sinister conspiracy is about to change the world forever. One of the most powerful nations has secretly joined an unholy alliance with India to tip the balance of world power and create an axis that will never again be dictated to by the U.S. government. The world watches helplessly as nuclear weapons replace diplomacy in the increasingly volatile exchanges between the Indian and Pakistan governments. With a fanatic's finger on the nuclear button, world oil supplies are cut off and chaos reigns throughout the Gulf States and beyond. The American and UK governments stand together to face the world threat head on, using détente and political pressure to hold crisis at bay while dispatching two of their best agents with more incisive methods in mind. One half of the team is battle hardened and weary Special Forces veteran Luke Weaver. The other, to his discomfort, is the dynamic and beautiful Kirin, an American field officer of Indian descent, who s familiar with the language and the terrain. As the oil supplies dwindle, the world learns that this is only the beginning of the master plan. Fronted by the maniacal prime minister of India, the axis plans to change the world forever: This is the paradigm shift as the U.S. president battles against time and treachery in the highest corridors of White House power. The options are running out as fast as the oil supplies.
