Golden Dawn is a high-octane international thriller from a seasoned journalist and New York Times bestselling nonfiction author Thomas Kostigen.

Trailing his IRA bomber uncle, journalist Michael Shea stumbles onto the biggest story of his life: a plot to smuggle nuclear material into Iran.  Discovered and marked for death, Shea flees the Iranian secret service.  His only help comes from the beautiful mystic Neda Ghazali, a member of the ancient sect of the Golden Dawn.  For centuries, the sect has guarded a secret prophecy of the End Times--a prophecy that international terrorists and Iran's president are exploiting for their own gain.

Shea leaves a trail of bodies behind as he rushes to reveal the truth--before Neda's cataclysmic prophecy comes true.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
