Item description for A Gathering of Doves by Gerard Brooker...
Can war be a means to peace? Is there such thing as a war to end all wars? Fletcher Nimer, the unyielding and unconventional president of the United States, has hatched the idea to drop a small-yield atomic bomb on a randomly chosen foreign city. He is certain that the modern advanced media coverage will allow the world to experience the horror of American military power fully unleashed, and he is equally certain that the lessons learned will end all wars. In "A Gathering of Doves," author Gerard Brooker takes the reader on a political thrill ride with global consequences. As the president is manipulating his civilian and military advisors in order to execute the atom bomb drop, and America is being subject to acts of new and unique terrorism, the world is heating up with the friction caused by atomic 'wanna be' nations incurring the wrath of the U.S. As we are introduced to an assortment of intriguing and innocent characters in the four possible target cities, it all comes to a boil, and the unpredictable outcome of "A Gathering of Doves" is more suspenseful and diabolical than any nightmare.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Gathering of Doves?
A rare find ! May 23, 2007
Fletcher A. Nimer is a tired man. Tired of war, of death and the senselessness of man's cruelty to his fellow man. Nimer is also the President of the United States. He decides to use the power of his office to change the course of history once and for all. To accomplish this he must ensnare accomplices, plan a nuclear strike outside the realm of government control and convince himself that he is doing the work of God. "A Gathering of Doves" is a psychological-political-social thriller that keeps the reader enthralled with a weaving of characters, situations and insights into the Human condition that at times seem all too real and all too possible. Gerard Brooker has created a tale as timely as today's Middle East headlines and as timeless as "Doctor Strangelove" or "Fail Safe."
It Can happen Here Apr 26, 2007
From the moment I started reading, "A Gathering of Doves" the fine hairs on my neck stood up. It was like hearing a loud bump in middle of the night. You need to know, but are afraid to look, to find that whatever it is....is coming for you.
A Haunting Scenario Apr 24, 2007
As a rogue president's convoluted plan to secure peace by dropping an atomic bomb on a random city is revealed, Brooker creates characters that we fear, and those we fear for, in A Gathering of Doves. It is a haunting scenario that blurs the line between fact and fiction in a world where leaders and decision-makers are insulated, and where ego and power can rationalize obscene actions in the name of the "greater good." The suspense holds the reader throughout, and, most frightening of all, in the end, the line between fact and fiction is less blurred.
One Scary President Apr 12, 2007
In this tale of mounting suspense, the reader confronts an American President who, while well-meaning, proves to be the prisoner of a single, fixed and terrible idea, one, ironically, he is proud to have invented The story could not be more timely. Brooker drives home the enormous danger to the welfare of this country and of the world that an obsessive and, finally, rogue President can bring about.
All too believable Apr 6, 2007
A Gathering of Doves is a gripping tale of a U.S. president whose plan to drop an atomic bomb on an unsuspecting city is all too believable. So, too, are the deceptive, manipulative behaviors of the man who occupies the Oval Office--a man who equates his ego with being right and who has no qualms in bullying generals and cabinet members. Brooker's harrowing page-turner will disabuse you of any inclination to believe "it couldn't happen here."
