The Salacia Project by Bill Duncan
|Title||The Salacia Project|
|Language||English, Spanish, and French|
An action-packed thrill ride that races along the bleeding edges of technology and covert operations. This is Book 1 in the Brystol Foundation series of espionage adventure novels. Set in the near future, the Salacia Project begins with a harrowing covert helicopter ride through the mountains of Afghanistan, and ends with a spectacular gun battle between US and Chinese intelligence operatives in Virginia. The Salacia technology, over which these two nations are fighting, could keep US naval forces and the land-based military units they support indomitable for decades. Developed by a brilliant young researcher at the Byrstol Foundation, the technology "moves water out of the way" of ships as they traverse the open sea, essentially doubling their speed. But if it falls into enemy hands, it could cost America its naval superiority in a matter of months. US and Chinese intelligence communities are pitted against one another in a winner-takes-all contest of wits and firepower. Murders, assassinations, kidnappings, and daring rescues sweep the reader along in a high-stakes adventure filled with intrigue and moral dilemmas.
