'Depth of Revenge': A Novel

LOS ANGELES, May 7, 2009 — Even as tensions rise, Iran still has not been persuaded to abandon its nuclear weapons program, nor are its leaders deterred by the threat of an Israeli counterattack. While Iran and Israel face-off, Britain, France, Russia and the United States anxiously wait along the sidelines. Even though it's a work of fiction, Richard Golden's "Depth of Revenge" (published by iUniverse) runs eerily parallel with current geopolitical crises and brings to an almost-too-real life the Mideast's political posturing and military threats.

Awarded Editor's Choice and given the Rising Star status by its publisher, "Depth of Revenge" explores the difficult choices faced by those who determine an effective and moral response to a nuclear attack and how culpability can extend beyond determination of the launch point. One mistake leads to a misunderstanding between two important characters while a clerical error leads to a more serious chain of events that threatens millions of lives. The author's fast-paced military fiction raises profound issues as readers follow the very real developments with the Iranian and North Korean missile and nuclear programs.

Golden's interest in the volatile global scenarios of the day, plus his personal passion for military history are a fitting arsenal for the creation of this highly dramatic story set in a region where there is strong potential to suffer a nuclear war. The author also takes a close look at the dangers of one person having the sole responsibility to make decisions based on limited information and guidance. Richard Golden reaches deep into the human condition and spins a tale of gripping suspense that unmasks both the emotion and logic behind the weight of a monumental decision, one that may very well decide the fate of the free world. Anyone interested in current events, particularly the Iran-Israel conflict, will find "Depth of Revenge" to be an entertaining, spellbinding read.
