Khrushchev had one last plan before he left power. His colleagues were to implement a plan that would undermine the United States as a superpower, leaving tens of thousands of people dead. Thirty years later only Stephen Wyndham has the instructions for Silent Wind. So begins Dangerous Legacy, the first military thriller from LDS author Gordon Ryan. When a deadly mishap with a U.S. guided missile cruiser leads to international outcry, Zachariah O'Brien, a young Latter-day saint with the National Security Agency, is assigned to find out who's responsible and stop them.
Zach tries to mantain control among the world's military forces and intelligence agencies, but things get out of hand as forces withdraw from the Middle East, and a second war with Iraq begins. As a faithful member of the Church and family man, Zach hopes to stop Silent Wind and restore confidence among America's allies, all the while preserving his intergrity. [publisher blurb]
