Red Deception"Red Deception"
by Ed Fuller and Gary Grossman

What would happen if all the major bridges in the U.S. were bombed, all commerce came to a dead stop, and the nation's natural resources, such as our water supply, were cut off? The importance of protecting America's critical infrastructure has rarely been depicted so powerfully as in Ed Fuller and Gary Grossman's fast-paced thriller, "Red Deception," the follow-up to 2019's "Red Hotel."

The novel posits a scenario that could potentially destroy much of the nation's infrastructure.

Blending career insight with first-hand knowledge of global politics, Fuller, a global executive and crisis management expert, and Grossman, a TV producer and author, have once again drawn a chilling portrait of the fragile fault lines in Europe and the players poised to seize power.
