Meet John Wells.

Wells and his former CIA bosses Ellis Shafer and Vinnie Duto have uncovered a false-flag operation to convince the President to attack Iran. But with no hard evidence, no one at the top will listen.

The President has set a deadline for Iran to give up its nuclear program, and the mullahs in Tehran – furious and frightened – have responded with a deadly terrorist attack. Wells and his team now have only twelve days to prove their theory.

From Switzerland to Saudi Arabia, Israel to Russia, they desperately pursue all clues, while the United States orders forces into place and Iran mobilizes a squad of suicide bombers.

As the deadline approaches, will Wells be able to do enough to stop a full-scale escalation into war?
