Iran is a conservative, restricted society – a situation that Jack Abramian, a superrich Californian with Armenian roots is determined to change. From his huge industrial compound in southern Armenia, he launches Operation Snowdrop, in which a handful of daredevil pilots drop ten million ready-to-use mobile phones that float down on little parachutes on Iranian cities. A gift from Allah. Now ideas are free! is the first message masses of excited people read in disbelief on the phones that are linked to the Pentagon's LEO satellite system. Distributed to anyone Iranian who can grab one, the phones are beyond the reach of the Mullahs, who are taken by surprise.
Iran is on the verge of becoming a nuclear power, but now they have to cope with the threat of unlimited free communication that is unsettling the country overnight. A hardcore group within the regime, however, is not likely to give in: first, they stun the world with a nuclear explosion in the remote province of Balochistan; then, they plan to attack Israel with state-of-the-art Sunburn missiles fitted with atomic warheads, which would be secretly delivered to them by the unscrupulous Oleg Nedjew—Russian oligarch, arms dealer, and rogue said to be connected to high places in Moscow.
The plot is set: Can Jack Abramian achieve his ultimate goal to free Armenia from international isolation by opening up Iran? Can the hectic preparations by Iran to nuke Israel be stopped? Can pretty, young Sophie Kramer who worked in a Zurich bank that launders Oleg Nedjew's arms-deal billions, and finds herself catapulted into the center of this deadly plot, outrun a ruthless hired killer? Will she finally prevail with the help of a few trusted friends in a breathless race against the clock?
The story is topical, the action suspenseful, plausible. It’s the unlikely becoming reality that makes this story a perfect thriller. The plot of sneaking into Iranian airspace and outwitting the IRIAR Air Defense Command is based on a true story of a pilot who had worked with a license from the U.S. State Department to help the Iranians to retrofit their neglected Lockheed C-130s.
Humor and romance are cleverly sprinkled throughout the fast-paced action of three dramatic interwoven plot lines.
