A novel based on the actual events of Erik B. Scott's murder on July 10, 2010, in Las Vegas, NV. When Las Vegas police officers unwittingly gun down a West Point graduate and current covert operations agent, then try to cover up their crime, they unleash the fury of Checkmate, a highly classified "black world" agency. It's an asymmetric war corrupt cops and their allies cannot win — and if Checkmate fails, America will erupt in armed revolt.

Inside U.S. Strategic Command, top military commanders, space-company executives, and U.S. intelligence experts are conducting a DEADSATS II wargame, exploring how the loss of critical satellites could lead to nuclear war. The players don't know that the war they are gaming has already begun, miles above them in the lifeless, silent cold of space. Jam-packed with the actual systems and secret technologies the United States has or will soon field to protect its space assets, Space Wars describes a near-future nuclear nightmare that terrorists will relish but politicians prefer to ignore. In a quieter, more peaceful time, Space Wars would be an exciting work of fiction. But with the United States now at war, Space Wars is all too real.

When North Korea detonates a nuclear weapon at the edge of space, silencing dozens of satellites, rogue nations seize a unique opportunity to strike. Overnight, national leaders robbed of spy satellite imagery are making decisions in the blind. An Iranian missile threatens to destroy Israel; a Venezuelan “research” satellite jeopardizes the lives of three astronauts, and tech-savvy terrorist cells unleash back-to-back horrors in California. The White House turns to U.S. Strategic Command and its team of Deadsat II wargamers, racing the clock to stave off international disaster. But power-hungry officials are undermining those attempts. With a B-2 bomber minutes from obliterating a Chinese laser-weapon site, and two U.S. aircraft carriers in China’s missile crosshairs, two great nations stand at the brink of nuclear war.

Texans refuse to go along with the president’s heavy-handed violations of the Constitution and secede from the Union. Soon, all-out war erupts between factions loyal to the president and those committed to freedom, led by gutsy Texans.

Steve Coonts is a master storyteller, but his latest political thriller should be read and absorbed as sobering prediction, not dismissed as mere fictional entertainment. Such a scenario easily could unfold over the next few months.

Given the predilections of today’s imperious Washington elites, the potential for politically driven overreaching is a real and present danger.
