The CIA is supporting Al Quaeda in its bid to take over the heroin trade in the Golden Crescent. It's leader Mustafa intends that the money brought in by the sale of heroin in the United States will be used to buy weapons to be used against the people of America. The CIA believes that Yasin's methods would interrupt the drug supply and allow the Asians to become the new supplier to the US, therefore diminishing or eradicating Al Quaeda's power base.

Unfortunately, things don't go according to plan and Al Quaeda is able to smuggle a missile launcher and an unknown amount of missiles into America. They are threatening a reign of terror not seen since September 11th and only one man can stop them. Mark Beamon, SAC in charge of the Arizona Branch of the FBI, goes undercover. He risks his life, his career, and his reputation to remove the threat from American soil.

Kyle Mills is an enthralling writer of espionage thrillers on the same level as Tom Clancy and Dale Brown. The protagonist is willing to bend, even break the rules to keep America safe. A man who is willing to sacrifice everything he holds dear is a true hero and it is this reviewer's fervent wish that there other thrillers starring Mark Beamon in the future. SPHERE OF INFLUENCE is a must read for anyone who enjoys a great thriller.
