Thank you, President Bush, for reading The Kremlin Conspiracy & The Persian Gamble. I’m deeply honored & I’m praying for you and your family.


(Washington, D.C.) — When I wrote my first political thriller, The Last Jihad, I was just hoping my mother and father could find it at a bookstore within 100 miles of their house.

I was completely unprepared for how far and wide these books would travel, and what a diverse range of people would read them.

There are now nearly five million copies in print. They are published in some two dozen languages, and on nearly every continent. It’s been fun to learn over the years that our readers include Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Jordan’s King Abdullah, U.S. Congressmen, Senators, Governors, several CIA directors, and many U.S. and foreign military and intelligence officials and diplomats. 

So far, however, George W. Bush is the first American President to read my novels.

It’s the latest series — The Kremlin Conspiracy and The Persian Gamble that focuses on the life of former U.S. Secret Service agent Marcus Ryker — that has drawn his interest. At the suggestion of mutual friends of ours, I sent him signed copies of both books when they released. The former President has not only read them but sent very gracious notes. My favorite line from the note he sent last month, “I look forward to what seeing what Marcus Ryker is up to next!”

Thank you, Mr. President. I am deeply honored that you are reading my thrillers. I just finished the manuscript for the third installment of the Ryker saga, and I’ll be sure to get you an advance copy later this Fall.

Above all, thank you for your faithful service to our country — and for the service of your father and brother. We owe you a great debt for all that you have done to keep Americans and our allies safe from the plague of Radical Islamist terrorism and to liberate tens of millions who were once enslaved under Middle Eastern tyrannies. May God bless you , Laura and your girls. You are all in my prayers.
