Description - The Pen and the Sword by L Todd Webb
The Pen and The Sword by L. Todd Webb The Pen and the Sword is an intense thriller set during the closing stages of the Arab Spring. A powerful cabal is covertly resurrecting the Islamic Caliphate, preparing for the return of the Mahdi and planning an event so horrifyingly cataclysmic that the long held schism between the divisions in Islam will be set aside in order to unite against the West. The impending destruction of Israel and the United States will plunge the world into highly profitable chaos. Rick Jackson, a disgraced journalist, busy at battle with decaying glory and paying for past indulgences, is blackmailed into using his column as the cabal's propaganda outlet. Through his team of contacts and informants and research into Islamic history and prophecy, he uncovers their secret and gets caught up in something so powerful, so pervasive, so evil, that the only way out is to move forward with abandon without any hope of success or survival. With lethally beautiful CIA assassin Gin DuPree, Rick travels to the Middle East to retrieve the artifacts that the cabal needs to reform the Caliphate and legitimize the Mahdi. Rick and Gin steal Mohammed's sword from the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, launch a chemical weapon attack at the Grand Mosque of Kufa, and infiltrate the Askari Mosque in Samarra where they find the long lost Book of Fatimah and Zulfiqar, the sword of Satan. They shelter at a secret American black ops site in the abandoned Camp Anaconda, and ultimately, with the assistance of Mossad, work their way back home to the United States. Once there, at the venerated House of the Temple in Washington D.C., they engage in physical and psychological battle with the supposed Mahdi himself. The Pen and the Sword brings sharp focus to the reality of the reemergence of Islam as a global power in the early 21st century and its violent impact on the world and United States.
