SYNOPSIS - DOOMSDAY (GRAND SLAM) GAMBIT - Disillusioned extremists in Iran, North Korea and Russia, grow impatient waiting for their leaders to act decisively. Having watched the Ukraine debacle of Vladimir Putin rebound to weaken their CRINK axis members. This despite Hamas launching against Israel and Houthi attacks on the Red Sea. All that had the effect of waking the sleeping giant: NATO.

 

They hatch a plot to kidnap top politicians from the west to create confusion, as a prelude to an all out nuclear attack, having first stockpiled sufficient gold and weapons reserves, and fallout bunkers for their cells, to be able to stage a second wave of conventional attacks, to in effect, take over the world after the planned nuclear holocaust. Including assassinating their jaded leaders: Xi Jinping; Iranian Grand Ayatollah, Ali Khamenei, and Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of communist North Korea.

PLOT: John Storm, on a routine artifact hunt in Istanbul, stumbles upon a coded message hidden within a smuggled Sumerian tablet. The message reveals a chilling covert alliance - Russia, Iran, and North Korea - codenamed "Red Dragon" - are planning a coordinated attack. Their goal: global domination.

Phase One: The Kidnapping Chaos

'Red Dragon,' using advanced sleeper cells and cyberwarfare, orchestrates the abduction of key political figures from the West - the US President, the British Prime Minister - Keir Starmer, the French President - Emmanuel Macron, and the German Chancellor - Olaf Scholz.

 

World leaders are thrown into disarray, communication channels are jammed, and financial markets plummet. 'Red Dragon' broadcasts a chilling message, threatening to kill the kidnap victims, if their demands are not met. The demands (vast resource concessions) being a feint.


Investigation:

Intrigued, Storm deciphers the message with the help of a former Russian intelligence agent turned informant, Katya Volkov. With international order on the brink, Hal, recognizing the coded language from the tablet, deciphers the Triad's plan. John teams up with a brilliant but jaded ex-KGB agent, Nadia Petrova, who knows the inner workings of the Triad.

 

They discover it references a sinister plot:

Golden Cage: Refers to a joint operation by Russia (Red Dragon) and North Korea (Midnight Sun) targeting key Western politicians for kidnapping.

 

The Motive: To create global chaos as a prelude to an all out nuclear attack.

The Mastermind:

The plan is orchestrated by a shadowy figure deep within the Iranian government, General Reza Shah. Shah believes the West is on the verge of collapse and seeks to exploit their weakness for global domination. He's been secretly stockpiling gold and weapons for years, along with building a network of fallout shelters for the elite.

The Kidnappings:

John and Katya race against time to prevent a series of high-profile kidnappings - the US President - Joe Biden, the British Prime Minister, the French Chancellor, and the German Chancellor. They travel across continents, deciphering clues left behind by the kidnappers. Each location tests John's survival skills and Katya's knowledge of international espionage.

The Twist:

One of the kidnapped leaders is revealed to be a double agent working for Shah. This throws John and Katya off track, forcing them to question their allegiances.

The Climax:

The chase leads to a secret underground facility in Iran, where the politicians are being held captive. John and Katya must infiltrate the heavily guarded complex and free the hostages before a nuclear strike is launched on major Western cities. A high-stakes battle ensues involving advanced weaponry and cunning strategy.

The Resolution:

John and Katya succeed in freeing the hostages and disabling the launch sequence. They expose Shah's plan to the world, turning the tide against him. However, a small nuclear device detonates in a remote location as a last-ditch effort by Shah's loyalists.

The Aftermath:

The world grapples with the fallout of the attack, both literal and geopolitical. John and Katya work together to track down Shah's remaining followers and prevent further chaos. The experience strengthens their partnership, hinting at future adventures.

Themes:

- Global cooperation vs. nationalistic ambition

 

- Trust and betrayal

 

- Technological threats and the human response

Twists:

One of the kidnapped leaders is secretly sympathetic to Shah's cause.
The stolen data chip could contain a map leading to a hidden weapon of mass destruction.
Katya has a hidden agenda of her own.

This plot offers a thrilling adventure for John Storm, with high stakes, international intrigue, and a race against time to prevent a global catastrophe that has been brewing since 2014, when Tony Blair deceived Parliament with false intelligence, so initiating the invasion of Iraq.


 

 

 

 

John Storm, the intrepid ocean adventurer is disturbed by the increasingly aggressive operations of the CRINKs, which Hal has identified as a coordinated effort on the part of extremist dictator heads of state with radical religious or communist views, to destabilize the democratic free world. This is a Bourne Identity/James Bond style narrative.

 

In conjunction with the CyberCore Genetica, Hal has identified a Russian backed plot to kidnap Joe Biden, Volodomyr Zelenskiy and the head of NATO. They fail in a few cases.

 

This is a covert black op, funded by the back door, such as not to be backward traceable. This is a plan cooked up by an increasingly erratic Vladimir Putin, that despite the backlash implications, Iranian Grand Ayatollah, Ali Khamenei, and Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of communist North Korea, backed the attempts - as befitted their master agenda: Special Operation Kingpin. The trio then abandoned the plan to the relief of Xi Jinping.

 

China abstained, Xi Jinping shutting his eyes to what he imagined was yet another provocation of the West. Content, and with the assurance of his generals. That no matter the level of foolishness of his CRINK counterparts, his nations would survive the inevitable nuclear holocaust.

 

'WWIII3 CYBER WARS' is an original political thriller in the John Storm franchise, featuring the Elizabeth Swann and Hal.

CHAPTER 5.   -  OPERATION GRAND SLAM - Intrigued, Storm deciphers the message with the help of a former Russian intelligence agent turned informant, Katya Volkov. With international order on the brink, Hal, recognizing the coded language from the tablet, deciphers the Triad's plan.

CHAPTER 6.    JOHN RACES TO NAPLES, JUST TOO LATE TO STOP KIDNAPPINGS  John and Katya race against time to prevent a series of high-profile kidnappings, seemingly chasing tails as though Red Dragon has intel - the US President on route to G7 summit Naples - Joe Biden was already missing, so too the British Prime Minister. The French President, and the German Chancellor were thought to be next. Red Dragon triggers kidnap commands timed to opportunistic venues. Of which G7 is ideal for remaining Europeans. Leaving Xi Jinping, Kim Jong Un and Ali Khamenei.

The Cells capture their hostages just minutes before John gets to the sites.

 

PART 2.

 

CHAPTER 8.    - A MOLE: One of the kidnapped leaders is suspected as being a double agent working for Shah. This throws John and Katya off track, forcing them to question the allegiances of the hostages. Hal fails to identify any incriminating communications.

 

CHAPTER 9.    - PRISONERS: The chase leads to a secret underground facility in Iran, where the politicians are being held captive. It is seemingly impregnable reinforced concrete, much like a super bank vault, near Char Bahar, Gulf of Oman, Arabian Sea. It is impregnable, without harming the hostages. This is the Golden Cage, the European cell was named after.

 

CHAPTER 10.  - CHAR BAHAR: John and Katya must infiltrate the heavily guarded complex and free the hostages before a nuclear strike is launched on major Western cities. Hal calculates that a nuclear launch is imminent, where brute force hacking at NORAD and other military bases is detected. The clock is ticking, and John now realizes that the kidnappings are diversionary tactics. But still he pushes on.

 

CHAPTER 11.  - MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Having taken out the perimeter guards, John and Katya finally succeed in gaining access to the prisoners the old fashioned way with thermal lances - a seemingly impossible mission - freeing the hostages - and transferring the bewildered heads of state to the Swann by RIB. Then the Swann vanishes into the Arabian Sea for a rendezvous with an ageing USS Vermont, Virginia class nuclear submarine. During transit, the freed captives talk through John freely, Hal interpreting telepathically. The freed prisoners cannot believe he understands so many languages. And his grasp on politics.

 

CHAPTER 12.  - BBC WORLD NEWS: Jill Bird item exposes Shah's plan to the world, discovering and revealing his identity as leader of Red Dragon, a Cell operating somewhere in the Middle East, and turning the tide against him. Revealed by Katya Volkov to John as she admits to having had an affair with the handsome Iranian General many years previously and was cast aside, left for dead. Adding pressure to an already knife edge plan for the Triads.

 

CHAPTER 13.  - CYBER CHESS GRAND MASTER: A high-stakes battle ensues involving advanced weaponry and cunning strategy. With launch and abort codes changing by the minute as US, Chinese, and Russian military are running at full pelt to stand still - helpless against cyber attacks. It's Military main frames from three locations versus Hal and John Storm, as the fastest computer CyberCore Genetica fends off brute force worms and viruses. It's a standoff without a final solution. Hal and CyberCore Genetica effectively block and counter, but need to locate the Cells that are hosting the attacks.

 

CHAPTER 14.  - BASE 37 NUCLEAR STRIKE: In cyber defeat and frustrated, Red Dragon attempts to strike fear into their targets with three small devices in Beijing, Moscow and Washington. Two devices are detected and defused. The third detonates at Base 37. This is a last-ditch effort by Shah's loyalists, saying to the world they are not safe, thumbing their noses at the CIA, FSB, MI6, Interpol and other agencies. Meantime, stockpiles of missiles by the superpowers remain a tempting target for other extremists that must be eliminated, with the assistance of John's new 'world-leader' friends.

 

PART 3.

 

CHAPTER 15.  - PLAYING WITH FIRE: Hal, John and Katya, disable the launch sequence for the Russian missiles. But cannot trace the source code, meaning transmissions could all begin again. Iranian and Chinese missiles are still a danger. The situation could rebound against Red Dragon; if only communist missiles are deactivated. While US and European missiles could still destroy the antagonists countries. Their plan could backfire. All hard lines are cut to Russian, Chinese and Iranian missiles, then manually shut down. Submarine missiles are systematically deactivated. Finally, US hard lines are cut, and submarine missile systems manually turned off. The world breathes a sigh of relief, Jill Bird reporting.

 

CHAPTER 16.  - TREBLE AGENT: One of the kidnapped leaders is identified as secretly sympathetic to Shah's cause. His identity becomes known during debriefing, when John (with Hal present telepathically) connects the dots, and he is turned around as a treble agent, used to penetrate further into the Red Dragon Cell, and close that and hunt down, then arrest of General Reza Shah.

 

CHAPTER 17.  - BLOODHOUNDS: John and Katya work together to track down Shah's remaining Cells, devout followers who fight to the death. John prevails to prevent further chaos. Within and from these Cells, they obtain valuable intelligence, much needed passwords and the like. 

 

CHAPTER 18.  - ATOMIC GOOD SAMARITAN: Using their new information, they take back control of the launch codes for the Iranian and Chinese missiles. The temporary administrations in China, Iran and North Korea plead with John Storm for his help. Not that he wasn't working double time to save them, but with Hal's help and using the CyberCore Genetica, they finally defuse the situation. Control of their missiles is restored. Then neutralized. All hail to John Storm.

 

CHAPTER 19.  KNIGHTS OF THE GARTER: The root cause of Red Dragon is revealed as discontent brewing from 2014, when Tony Blair deceived Parliament with false intelligence, so initiating the invasion of Iraq by way of a coalition with US President George Walker Bush. The Brits knighting their own for such corruption, and intelligence abuses was the last straw. As the seeds of hate were revealed, another Petition succeeds in Blair's KG honour being reviewed with Keir Starmer making sincere public apology to Iraq. With a promise that the British honours system will be examined, such as not to ignite future Red Dragons.

 

CHAPTER 20.  CRIME OF PASSION: Katya Volkov has a hidden agenda of her own - revenge over a jilted romance, being used and left for dead. She takes out Reza Shah, a a personal and simmering crime of passion - after he goads her, saying how she was used to obtain information taunting her about Nadia Petrova - before John can stop her the General is dead. Honour satisfied, she collapses from shock, the experience strengthens their partnership, hinting at future adventures; maybe. John making a mental note not to dally with her emotions thus. A final message is delivered anonymously: Job done!

 

CHAPTER 21.  - NATIONS REUNITED: The world grapples with the fallout of the attack, both literal and geopolitical. A broadcast transmitted all across the globe, from all the kidnap victims speaking as one voice, assures the world that they will now multiply their efforts to work together to resolve their differences. The first step being to dismantle their nuclear stockpiles, and agree never to replenish such weapons of mass destruction. One warning like this being seen as enough. John receives several honours. Including the 'Hero of the Russian Federation' (replacing the Order of Lenin), People's Republic of China Friendship Medal, Purple Heart (for being injured while a temporary US Navy SEAL) and after some debate, the Victoria Cross, in place of the at first suggested George Cross. And finally, the Nobel Peace Prize awarded in Oslo, to a standing ovation at a UN General assembly later that year. Making John the winner of a Guinness Book of Records entry and certificate, for the person with most multi-national decorations from a single mission.
