Russian sleeper agents left over from the Cold War take over an Alaskan radar station when they think a strategic nuclear attack from Russia has been launched at the United States. Frank Trask, an engineer at the site, and Ellen Gain, a covert CIA agent, race to stop the Russian agents while trying to survive the extreme elements on the Aleutian Island of Shemya. The two hook up with two other survivors of the Russian agents’ vicious attack on the island personnel. Elverson, a security guard, and Vaughan, a personnel employee, join Trask and Gain in trying to figure out why their island has been taken over by hostile forces. Trask struggles with inner demons, his excessive drinking and is haunted by his past as a sniper in Vietnam. He comes to the sudden conclusion that one of their group is a traitor, waiting to betray them at any time. Meanwhile U.S. Marines are sent to Shemya when communications are broken between the island and NORAD. A U.S. attack submarine is also sent into the area and tracks a Russian submarine whose intent is unknown. The Russian sub deploys a Spetsnaz team onto the island. All these forces converge for one final battle at the top of the world.

About the Author:

John Campbell is the author of seven novels, a collection of short stories, and one nonfiction book. Using his experience as a U.S. Naval officer, and his extensive experience in the aerospace industry, he began his first novel in 1976 with a story about an attempt by North Korean special forces to hijack a U.S. nuclear aircraft carrier. Fifteen years later Raid On Truman was published in hardbound and paperback and was translated into Japanese for hardbound and paperback sales in Japan. That was the fulfillment of a dream to become a published novelist. He sold a second novel on the heels of the first. COBRA DANE was published in paperback in 1995. A third novel, Sub Zero, quickly followed and was published in 1996 along with publication in Japan. John has written four more novels, Vauclain’s Shield, Hidden Sun, These Final Hours, and The Telekinetic Man and a screenplay derived from The Telekinetic Man and is in the process of trying to sell them. Another book was published in 2003 just before the Iraqi War. Desert War was a nonfiction look at how the war might be conducted, weapons systems, intelligence gathering, and forces on both sides. While John was the author, his daughter, Christine researched the work. Influenced initially by the works of Ian Fleming and his brand of no-holds-barred action and intrigue, John has tried to bring to readers that same action elements, but with a large dose of sobering reality. Violence has profound consequences and the characters within John's novels feel all the passion and agony of real people. Raid On Truman, COBRA DANE, Sub Zero, Vauclain's Shield, These Final Hours, The Telekinetic Man, and Hidden Sun are available on Amazon's Kindle Store. Note that COBRA DANE has for its cover image a picture of the actual COBRA DANE radar on the island of Shemya in the Aleutians. Vauclain's Shield's cover image has a photo of actual reentry vehicles passing through the atmosphere over Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific, and Raid On Truman has a real picture of the USS Harry Truman taken by the author. A collection of fourteen sci-fi/horror/paranormal short stories, A Case of the Vapors was added to the Kindle store in August 2013. These stories run the gamut from the humorous A Case of the Vapors to the somber, but hopeful, The Iron Sergeant. John's literary website is http://johntcampbell.com/.
