A High-Octane International Thriller From NYT Bestselling Author Thomas M. Kostigen's GOLDEN DAWN

New York Times bestselling nonfiction author and seasoned journalist Thomas M. Kostigen brings his international affairs expertise to a gripping debut thriller!

New York (I-Newswire) October 16, 2012 - GOLDEN DAWN by Thomas M. Kostigen

Advance Praise for GOLDEN DAWN

"Kostigen's debut fiction is headline-driven, with a touch of mysticism added....
Think The Da Vinci Code with religious fanatics eager to light off an atomic weapon."
-Kirkus Reviews

"A fast-moving thriller with a strong sense of place."
-Publishers Weekly

This is a story ripped straight from the headlines by a journalist who has been reporting from natural wonders and war zones the world over. Prophecy parallels true events as this international thriller centers on radical Muslim beliefs informed by ancient Zoroastrian texts to present real-world nuclear catastrophe. Drawn from more than twenty years of reportage and extreme travels, Kostigen excites readers with intriguing characters, history and super-charged action and events that will leave them buzzing about GOLDEN DAWN (A Forge Hardcover; On Sale: October 16, 2012; $24.99).

Trailing his IRA bomber uncle, journalist Michael Shea stumbles onto the biggest story of his life: a plot to smuggle nuclear material into Iran. Discovered and marked for death, Shea flees the Iranian secret service. His only help comes from the beautiful mystic Neda Ghazali, a member of the ancient sect of the Golden Dawn. For centuries, the Golden Dawn, an ancient sect of Zoroastrians, has guarded an ancient secret: the identity of a true leader fated to appear before the End Times. Now the President of Iran is exploiting the Golden Dawn's prophecy for his own evil gains-and soon he'll have nuclear weapons behind him.

Shea leaves a trail of bodies behind as he rushes to reveal the truth--before Neda's cataclysmic prophecy comes true.

A thought-provoking thriller, GOLDEN DAWN is an enthralling page-turner that will both captivate and delight readers.

"Thomas Kostigen bursts into the ranks of thriller writers at breakneck speed. This dark and surprising journey swept me away enthralled on every high-speed page."
