FORTUNES OF WAR is set in the year 2008. A defenceless Russia, which has destroyed its nuclear warheads in return for foreign aid, appeals to the United States for help in fending off a Japanese attack. America responds by sending a squadron of F-22 Raptor fighters, its newest super-planes, to wrest air supremacy from the new Japanese Zeros in the skies over Siberia... The succession struggle ignited by the impending death of Fidel Castro is the catalyst for his follow-up thriller, CUBA... And when Callie, Jake Grafton's wife is kidnapped by a rebel Chinese faction when they are holidaying together in HONG KONG, Jake finds himself drawn into the vortex of a high-tech civil war. Jake must figure out who is wearing the white hats among the Chinese patriots fighting for the future of China... and make sure the right side wins.
