Persia Rising Paperback – September 8, 2011
|New from||Used from|
"This cautionary tale takes the reader on a wild and terrifying ride into a future in which the next September 11 is a terrorist attack that provokes a full-blown apocalypse. The author obviously knows his settings and his characters; he's done his homework in terms of research. The characters are well-drawn and the pacing is swift. The prose style is clear, concise, and engaging. Given its terrorist plot and apocalyptic themes, this is an ambitious novel that however fast-paced often reads as polemic. That said, while the story does not quite live up to its ambitions, it is nonetheless a compelling read." Source of Review: Judge 44, Writers Digest 20th annual Self-Published book awards contest
AN incredibly fast-paced cautionary tale, this title takes the reader on a wild and terrifying ride into a future in which the next 9/11-style terrorist attack provokes a full-blown apocalypse. The first couple of chapters are brutal to say the least but if you like your literature with a bit of an edge this is probably your cup of tea. The pace of the story alone keeps you turning the pages to find out what’s happening around the next corner. I’m a fan of the whole doomsday genre and this is well worth a look if you’re into this kind of thing.

In his new gritty, eye-opening novel Persia Rising, retired law enforcement officer Mark B. Langford introduces his readers to a chilling and all-too plausible America where a series of horrific terrorist attacks occur.
American Muslim terrorist Ajay Majumbar plans and carries out the attacks. Beginning with his unhappy and isolated childhood in rural Texas, Langford chronicles Majumbar’s life as he grows up to become a mass murderer and psychopathic jihadist. Aided by commandos from Iran, Russia, and China, Majumbar’s ultimate goal is nothing less than to execute a series of spectacular, coordinated attacks designed to decimate the Western world, specifically, the United States and its NATO allies.
As the first book of the Long War Series, Langford ultimately provides an inside look at how easily and realistically enemies of the United States can destroy our homeland, as well as the measures U.S. civilians should take in the event of another coordinated attack. Langford says he, “Designed the book as the ‘ultimate table-top exercise’ for citizens, emergency responders, planners, and the military to use as a template to guide their mindset and response to a similar scenario actually occurring.”
The edge-of-your-seat thriller also explores other timely and relevant issues including:
• Exactly how Islamic extremists can cause more terrorist attacks using weapons of mass destruction;
• The weaknesses and vulnerabilities in America’s national security;
• Whether domestic emergency management agencies have sufficient resources and supply lines to deal with another series of terrorist attacks;
• Some of the best ways American civilians can prepare for another terrorist attack
Persia Rising forces its readers to consider what will happen if another series of terrorist attacks takes place in the United States, while asking, “Can our nation survive? Will our culture survive? Will you survive?”
