ABOUT CASTLE BRAVO

In the fourth of the White House National Security series, Samantha Reid has been promoted to Director of The White House Office of Homeland Security where she Receives intelligence about a potential new threat to the country….one that is truly Staggering. What if a hostile group gets hold of a small nuclear device and instead of aiming it at one of our cities, they intend to detonate it high in the atmosphere? It would create an Electro-Magnetic Pulse or “EMP” that sends shock waves that would “fry” all electronics on the ground. There would be no electricity grid, no internet, no transportation, refrigeration…it would set us back to the year 1910. Could it happen here?                              

 “Smart, slick and exciting as hell.  Castle Bravo is one great read. Karna Small Bodman has an insider’s feel for the corridors of power.  As you quickly turn the pages, you will find yourself wondering if the book is truth or fiction.  A winner!”
  --Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author
