I was swept up in the suspense and politics of this thriller!
A doctoral candidate in Theological Studies accepts recruitment by a friend in the U.S. State Department for an initiative to the most troublesome province in 2006 Iraq. The many challenges of nation building expand the mission from diplomacy to a survival situation as local and international interests position themselves to oppose a State Department initiative: one vital to progress in an uncertain theater.
Terrorism and counter-terror operations threaten to keep the team from leaving the relative safety of Baghdad. Until, that is, a former USAF Special Tactics operative hunting the men who want to kill them draws duty as their protector. The simple questions posed during a tribal council threaten provincial and regional stability; the conclusions reached explode into a clash of faith, loyalty, schism and betrayal that will help shape the future of two nations.
Dale Amidei lives and writes in the beautiful Texas Hill Country near San Antonio. His fiction defines the inner spiritual processes that he believes occur naturally in all human beings. It features faith-based themes set in the real world, which can be violent. It contains real-world language, which varies between personalities. His characters are realistically portrayed as caught between heaven and earth, not always what they should be, nor what they used to be. In this way they are like all of us. As Dale says: “A novel begins with having something to say. Everything that comes next, developing the characters, the plot, the first draft, the editing, the polishing, all follow this. First have something to say, and then start writing.”

Avarice and hatred between the partners of a biotech firm lead to murder – and to a possible pandemic of Creutzfeld-Jacobs disease in this riveting thriller that begins in a placid North American suburb and ends on the high seas on the morning of 9/11. Ex-CIA, Mossad and SAS men are pitted against Latin America stringers for Al Qaeda in a race against time, when it becomes clear that an innocuous incident involving surgical glue derived from cow blood has led to the generation of a weapon of mass destruction.
Fatal Greed is about an underground world that most of us will never know, a world of easily-bought passports and citizenships of convenience, secret offshore banking with numbered and coded accounts, anonymous bearer share certificates, and unparalleled moral turpitude. When its surface ruptures it threatens to engulf civil society like a tidal wave. This is an entirely plausible tale.

Now a writer of international thriller novels, Robert Landori was born in Hungary and for most of his professional life was a senior Public Accountant, a Mergers & Acquisitions specialist, and a Trustee in Bankruptcy in the Cayman Islands.
But behind the facade of the quiet man of numbers lay a life of intrigue and mystery. He traveled widely throughout South America and the Caribbean, where he came into contact with international financiers, notorious con men, well-known artists and entertainers… and members of several countries’ intelligence communities. Robert Landori also developed a highly charged and double-edged relationship with Castro’s Cuba, and was, at one time, held in solitary confinement there for over two months on false accusations of espionage. He was eventually freed, and is now a security consultant, lecturer on Money Laundering and Terrorists and writer of international fiction and espionage novels. Robert Landori lives in Montreal, Canada.
