"A nuclear bomb is about to explode in a major city whose streets will turn bright with the light of a thousand suns.

THE DEVIL'S LIGHT is more than the provocative ruminations of a master story teller. It is a powerful call to action-lest we find ourselves sifting through the radiated wreckage of a truth told too late. Masterful and illuminating, THE DEVIL'S LIGHT is Richard North Patterson at his best. You will not want, or be able to, put this story down. It is tomorrow's catastrophe riding on the 'gleaming wings of science.'" --William S. Cohen, former Secretary of Defense
--Robert Baer, former CIA field officer and New York Times bestselling author
-Kathy Reichs, #1 New York Times best-selling author of 206
"THE DEVIL'S LIGHT dazzles and illuminates, a page-turner that smartly and in breath-taking fashion snaps to life the complexities of the middle east and the struggle of nations and players for power. The books literally barrels along as the stakes grow ever higher. Deeply researched and thoroughly plausible, Patterson's is one of the most intelligent and entertaining thrillers about the world as it is, and the possible world to come."
--Doug Stanton, author of Horse Soldiers and In Harm's Way
