The 38th Floor

A novel by

"Some smashing skullduggery, with shadowings, chases, and a marvelous climax."
- Sunday Telegraph

The world teeters on the brink of war when John Burden, an African-American, is elevated unexpectedly to acting Secretary-American of the UN. Quickly, as he takes exception to the U.S. position, he finds himself in danger of going down in his country's history as "the great black traitor."
THE 39TH FLOOR is a prophetic drama of international politics that begins with a threat of nuclear conflict with China and ends with a desperate manhunt through the streets of Manhattan. In the genre of the political novel, it stands out as a masterly blend of action, character, and memorable ideas.

"High-powered political fiction." - Times Literary Supplement (London)

"Compulsive reading." - Books and Bookmen

"A powerful and illuminating book that deals eloquently with the China threat. It's a dynamic thriller to boot."-- Philadelphia Enquirer
