An adolescent 17-year old boy goes with a youth group on a 12-day skiing holiday in the mountains. He is an introverted nerd, shy and inhibited, brought up by strict and protective parents. But he is full of inner energy and emotions which he would like to show and share. He is in love with a girl, but has no experience and is puzzled by the complexities of building a relationship. He is aware of his boundaries and limitations and is anxious to overcome them. This is not very easy for him, but he works hard towards this goal while he experiences an emotional roller coaster between greatest joy and deepest desperation, between love and jealousy. The story takes the subjective viewpoint of this boy. The reader follows his thoughts and inner reflections throughout these twelve days of that winter holiday, while he is learning and will eventually be able to overcome the wall that seems to surround him. In the meantime there is a lot of snow, skiing, mulled and sparkling wine, and going to the cemetery at night.

Those in power always need an unofficial option. Meet John Wells. Wells and his former CIA bosses Ellis Shafer and Vinnie Duto have uncovered a false-flag operation to convince the President to attack Iran. But with no hard evidence, no one at the top will listen. The President has set a deadline for Iran to give up its nuclear program, and the mullahs in Tehran - furious and frightened - have responded with a deadly terrorist attack. Wells and his team now have only twelve days to prove their theory. From Switzerland to Saudi Arabia, Israel to Russia, they desperately pursue all clues, while the United States orders forces into place and Iran mobilizes a squad of suicide bombers. As the deadline approaches, will Wells be able to do enough to stop a full-scale escalation into war?
