Publisher's Summary

The greatest intelligence failure of our modern era…or the greatest deception?

Written by two US Navy veterans, Weapons of Mass Deception weaves historical fact with realistic fiction to create a riveting national security thriller equal to the threats of the 21st century.

In 2003, the world watched as coalition forces toppled Saddam Hussein’s regime, then scoured the country for the WMDs they knew were there.

Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were never found…but they exist. 

On the eve of the invasion, five nuclear devices are smuggled out of Iraq and hidden in the most unlikely of places—neighboring Iran. Now, as the threat of WMDs fades into a late-night punch line, a hardline splinter group waits for the perfect moment to unleash nuclear terror.

When Navy SEAL Brendan McHugh captures a mysterious Iranian diplomat on a raid, it feels all wrong. While the official rules of engagement say he must release the diplomat, that doesn't stop McHugh from investigating further. With an FBI linguist and a CIA analyst on his team, he chases clues across the globe to arrive at a terrifying conclusion.

The threat to the United States heartland is bigger--and closer to home--than anyone dreamed possible.

Start listening to Weapons of Mass Deception now and take your place alongside the men and women that keep us safe from the threats of our time.

Felt like listenibg to a long military briefing.

The ratings led me to believe this one was going to be much better, but was a complete let down. I frankly attended better briefing during my USAF career than this story - chapter after chapter. The story was uninspired, the chapters seemed at times disconnected, the reader appeared bored with the plodding story, and I was looking forward to the end so I could start something better.

I really hate to trash the work of others, but the authors and reader need to have a few energy drinks or some caffeine before work! I have heard better monotone automated news reports.

Good read, looks to be a good series

Weapons of Mass Deception (The WMD Files #1), my first read from author David Bruns and the first collaborative effort of authors David Bruns & J.R. Olson. Well-written with well-developed, memorable characters. An exciting, enjoyable read. I bought this book back in July of this year because I already owned Battle Djinni: A Short Story (The WMD Files Book 4). Narrator Clay Lomakayu's narration adds to the book’s enjoyment. I can’t wait to get the next book. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

So many characters; so many years

Had a hard time moving from character to character over the decades. Would have like more closure at the end of the book. It just stopped.
