A half-billion would die before it was over….


The day the Iranians set off a forty megaton nuke marked the beginning of a new world order. The Russians covertly assist the Admiral who sets a plan in motion disrupting the world’s oil supply that will ultimately alter the course of history.
The Western World is panic stricken with the thought that Iran threatens first Israel, then the entire world with nuclear destruction. The Iranian president continues his ranting at the UN that Allah has willed the destruction of the evil Zionists.


Old hostilities are tossed aside and new alliances are formed in smoke filled backrooms of the UN, the Kremlin and the White House. Third world nations, particularly Somalia, suddenly become strategically important and the super powers struggle to sort it all out and battle for position. The stakes could not be higher.


Houston Robinson, better known as Watchdogg, an unofficial Cabinet advisor to the president, sets out to discover the truth to all the crises that suddenly appear out of nowhere. Tourists are mysteriously kidnapped off the streets of Europe and surface in the largest supertanker hijacking in history. The USS George H.W. Bush is a target of an Iranian airbus attack in the Indian Ocean. Pandemonium in the oil futures markets sends oil prices to dizzying heights in a Venezuela Chinese oil coup. The entire planet it seems is being turned upside down when the Admiral seizes the world’s oil supply. Economies crumble at a dizzying pace while others flourish depending upon their role in the new order.


Watchdogg finds himself in backroom politics with the Amir Harazi the Prime Minister of Israel who has plans of his own to bring a stop to the Iranian missiles that threaten to destroy his country in another Holocaust.


You will be taken into the cockpits of Super Hornets and Lightning II’s with the men and women who carry out the orders of world leaders. You’ll witness the agonizing decisions of generals and commanders who place their careers on the line carrying out the orders of presidents and prime ministers. Inevitably Watchdogg runs head to head with the Admiral. Millions of lives hang in the balance as the world threatens to self destruct from greed and power.


This story is taken from tomorrow’s headlines. It’s a prophetic tale that will scare you with its chilling back room deals and double-crosses. Who is friend? Who is foe?


It’s a good thing Watchdogg is here to figure it all out and see that the Admiral’s plan to hijack the world’s oil is waylaid. Should he do it? Can he do it? Let’s hope so.

"Forty Days to Armageddon" by Reynold Jay
This novel by Reynold Jay is a remarkable story, one which I found congruent with our own more recent happenings around the world today.
The characters, behaviors, conditions and places are very graphic, written with such depth and imagination. A tremendous amount of research has gone into publishing this work of art.
From the beginning the author gets straight to the point with his characters, a somewhat unorthodox style I felt, but he lets us enjoy the adventure of his synchronistic perceptions; guiding us through a daring search for the remaining insights in the unfolding chapters.
The author formulates his scenes and characters immediately, and reduces his readers into this abscess of another world, place and time, allowing the reader to witness disturbing emotions.
I think the author should be nominated for best book of the year! His tenacity to research in-depth, difficult details with such clarity and timing keeps the reader wondering what's coming next. He makes the story authentic in its disguise.
A brilliant book, one that deserves great acknowledgments. I loved it!

great book

I am currently waiting for my next time I can borrow a book from Prime. This book is actually very realistic. Iran is trying to push the U.S towards a war and blame it on the U.S for starting it and gather support from the Middle East. Russia, loves to play two face. The U.S economy is on a down spiral and gas us going up the hinny; Up 20 cents since a month ago here in CA. Overall is a great book, I doubt in real life Russia would be as friendly to the U.S as in the book. Book one just started building up the suspense. I am not sure if this is a trilogy. I would love it were, but I hate having to wait for a year for it come out.

Great plot

This is an excellent book from a very talented writer. If you like spy novels or thrillers, this book is for you. The plot is as far fetched as it is realistic. Yes, it is unlikely to happen but it could. This is the ultimate "What if?" tale. It lets your mind explore the outer realms of political possibility. The characters are well developed, and you are not sure if you should like and respect the Russians for their audacity and foresight, or detest them for their ruthlessness. Highly recommended!
