Snowflakes in July

By Warren Bell

Historical fiction, Action & adventure, Thriller | Paperback, eBook


During the turmoil of the late 1960s, former student radicals found the Phoenix Guards Brigade. Their goal is to overthrow the U.S. government and replace it with a strict Marxist society. Following the dictates of Mao Zedong’s “little red book,” the PGB begins a campaign of targeted assassinations, bombings, and thefts of sophisticated military hardware. In 1975, the mole electrifies the PGB high command with details of weaknesses in the storage of Navy nuclear weapons. The terrorists immediately plan a commando raid to steal some of the warheads and force the government into submitting to their demands. Back in the Pentagon, Navy Captain Mike Duquesne, a former Vietnam POW, identifies a pattern in the mole’s budget decisions that undermine areas of U.S. superiority over the Soviet Union. He enlists Leslie Thomas, a Navy staff lawyer, in his investigation. Alerted by her inquiries, the PGB targets her for blackmail based on a youthful indiscretion. Will Mike’s investigation uncover the plot to steal nuclear weapons before the mission can take place? And what must Leslie endure at the hands of the PGB before the FBI can rescue her? Snowflakes in July has exciting aerial combat scenes, political assassinations, terrorist bombings, high-stakes commando operations, and thrilling romance.
