No one writes a political thriller like Walter Wager. No one writes a psychological thriller like Walter Wager. In TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING, he checks both boxes, and the result will keep you reading through to sunrise.

A retired general takes over a missile silo in the Badlands. His threat is to provoke a World War, launching deadly ordnance, unless the President is willing to reveal everything about a secret meeting he had during the Vietnam War.

The situation is explosive, and so is the truth. Before the day is done, one man has his only shot at redemption—and countless lives hang in the balance.
