In God We Trust

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

After years of espionage the Joint Terrorism Task Force has targeted the location of the Supernote Press in Tehran. With US backed sanctions crippling its economy, Iran plans to use Supernotes – perfect counterfeit $100 bills -- to finance a monumental act of terrorism that promises to plunge the world into unprecedented emotional and financial chaos. John Farragut, a terminally ill former CIA operative, is lured out of retirement to destroy the press before it is too late. His team consists of a counterfeiter of Iranian descent facing a stiff prison sentence, and a former chemistry professor serving time for bombing a federal courthouse. Each man is selected for their skills, their courage… and their expendability. Farragut and his cohorts are forced together on an apparent suicide mission in the hotbed of the Middle East. The team’s conflicting loyalties – between love of family and faith in God, trust in themselves and trust in each other -- stalk their every move along serpentine paths of betrayal that intersect in an explosive climax.

Kirkus Reviews

A debut thriller tells the story of a team of agents sent undercover into Iran to eliminate a major source of terrorist funding. Retired CIA agent John Farragut has a brain tumor that will kill him in the next 18 months. But he still has enough spring in his step to capture a terrorist at LaGuardia Airport after the culprit manages to blow up half a plane—the half containing Farragut’s father. The suspect is taken into custody, where Treasury agent Mia Kelly discovers that the man was paid to commit the act using Supernotes. “The Supernote is the world’s finest counterfeit American currency,” Mia explains. “It’s printed on the same paper as real US legal tender. Same ink and same process on the same type of press. But instead of buying baseball, hot dogs, apple pies and Chevrolets, these dollars buy terrorism.” Finding the Supernotes printing facility is the holy grail for the Treasury, and Mia immediately begins putting together a team of unlikely (and sometimes unwilling) agents to sneak into Tehran and destroy it. She recruits an Iranian-American master counterfeiter, an American explosives expert serving a life sentence for murder, an Israeli spy who knows Tehran like the back of his hand, and Farragut, Mia’s longtime on-again, off-again lover. It will be an incredibly dangerous mission, but like the men she’s recruited, Mia—whose only child was killed by a drunk driver—feels she has nothing much to lose. Adam P. Gross and Seth K. Gross’ prose is vibrant and snappy, portraying a heightened reality that often feels more like an Ocean’s Eleven sequel than real life: “Alson had hired the arsonists the week before; they were former snitches who had performed similar tasks back when Alson was LAPD. The fire had to be set by pros.” Even so, the novel is an entertaining heist story wrapped in a war on terror package, taking its characters seriously even as it lets the plot pull them in pulpy directions. Without devolving into camp or melodrama, this satisfying adventure remains gripping right to the end. A well-crafted, highly readable tale about a quest to destroy a counterfeit operation.
