Overview

A radical Muslim group has dedicated itself to the restoration of the Caliphate, a global Islamic empire based on cruel medieval values and the conquests of the faith's glory years. These true believers will stop at nothing, including assassinations and terrorism, to achieve their goal. Standing in their way is Steve Church, just a U.S. businessman in Paris who never expected to be recruited by the CIA as an undercover operative. But now, with his life on the line, with the fate of nations at stake, and with the safety of his beautiful Kella in jeopardy, Steve must dive headlong into a desperate struggle to prevent mass destruction. The Caliphate is a whirlwind adventure, bristling with exotic locales, dangerous and desperate characters, and international intrigue, all crafted by a former master spy who has experienced similar dangers and challenges firsthand.

Author Biography

During his career with the Central Intelligence Agency, André Le Gallo weathered several coups, a war and a revolution. He has been mentioned in books on the CIA, and he has spoken extensively on intelligence topics. Mr. Le Gallo was CIA Chief of Station in four separate countries. In that capacity, he managed intelligence collection, counterintelligence, and special operations. He also served the agency in other posts on several continents. He held senior positions in the Near East, Latin America, West Europe Divisions, as well as on the National Intelligence Council and the staff of the agency's Inspector General.  As the National Intelligence Officer for Counterterrorism, the one-stop shop on counterterrorism for the CIA director, he briefed senior officials and policymakers, and he testified before Congress. He originated and authorized National Intelligence Estimates, oversaw the national terror warning system, and consulted with foreign counterparts. He chaired terror warning meetings and initiated a computerized terrorist database for use by the intelligence community. In honor of his distinguished service, the Association of Former Intelligence Officers has named its San Francisco chapter after Mr. Le Gallo.
