Prolific thriller writer Tetsuo "Ted" Takashima's engaging yarn presents a fresh perspective on the global refugee crisis

At the Mexican border, refugees from the destitute South American nation of Cordova march toward "The Wall." Tensions rise to a fever pitch as the unarmed asylum seekers attempt to make it over the partition and past its US Army sentries, until, at last, a fateful gunshot. This atrocity would be reported the world over as the "Tragedy at The Wall." The press proceeds to condemn Captain Green, the border defense commander, reviling him as the "Border Butcher." Taking responsibility, he resigns from the military until, one day, he's called back into action through covert channels. Within the Nevada desert hotel Green is whisked to lies the "War Room," a state-of-the-art battle command center that plays host to experts in economics, politics, psychology, communications, and more. Green then becomes wrapped up in an operation to save Cordova, and America's soul. 


"We were impressed with The Wall . . . Using a fascinating and sophisticated blend of socioeconomic and humanitarian issues, author Tetsuo Ted Takashima gives readers much to think about within an otherwise entertaining action thriller." —Best Thrillers

"The Wall is a powerful story of nation-building and changing hearts and minds. It will prove an attractively absorbing saga for any thriller reader who likes politics embedded in the actions and changing purposes of leaders and followers. The close inspection of the roots and minds of refugees creates an added dimension of understanding not present in most other genre reads." —D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

". . . earnest mash-up of politics and espionage set in the near future . . ." —Publishers Weekly
