An American born in Brazil, Allan Kahane's international business interests over the years have spanned the production and distribution of steel in Latin America, sugar blends in Africa, oil products in the United States, and newspaper publishing in the Middle East. His global travels have made him a first-hand witness to the nearly universal negative perception of the United States in the developing world.
"Fire with Fire" is an action-packed international thriller ripped from today's headlines. When billionaire Jake Burke's wife and daughter are slain in a terrorist attack on U.S. soil, he uses the wealth and connections at his disposal to track down their killers. Along the way he encounters STOP: a rogue organization of former intelligence agencies from around the world dedicated to ending terrorism by any means necessary, unhindered by the usual government restraint. Backed by extensive research, businessman/author Allan Kahane takes Jake (and the reader) on a quest which explores in depth the issues that arise when violence ricochets off violence.
