KAZAKHSTAN, 1993: A former Soviet Naval officer meets with a U.S. contact at the American Embassy and warns him of a potentially catastrophic situation.

A large cache of highly enriched uranium from the Soviet submarine program has been abandoned and is stored in a decaying warehouse in the eastern part of the country near its borders with China and Russia.

U.S. personnel are deployed to Kazakhstan to see the uranium with their own eyes and bring back samples for analysis. What they find is worse than anyone could have imagined—650 kilograms of weapons-grade uranium in buckets and barrels arranged just far enough apart to avoid criticality. It is a catastrophe in search of opportunity.

WASHINGTON, D.C., 1994: The U.S. initiates Project Sapphire. A tiger team of Air Force personnel and scientific experts is sent to Kazakhstan to secure all of the uranium enough to make 20 Hiroshima-equivalent devices and bring it to the U.S.

Less than 600 kg of fissile material reaches the U.S. The discrepancy has never been accounted for.

The preceding description is historical fact. THE SAPPHIRE LEGACY, the latest novel by Doug and Linda Raber, picks up where Project Sapphire left off. The novel traces the interweaving paths of immigrants and insurgents from Central Asia. A toxic mix of hatred, fear, and duplicity threatens to undermine the efforts of CIA agents who suspect the missing uranium has fallen into the hands of a shadowy Kazakh warlord.

The Rabers’ new thriller takes readers on a harrowing journey, as one man s desire to play spy clashes with another’s vow to avenge his son’s death. A joint CIA-FBI team uncovers evidence that a nuclear attack is imminent. But they don’t know where, and they don’t know when. They only know that they are running out of time.
