A Muslim and Christian youth are sole family survivors from an American air attack on Baghdad in 2003.
They join other Lebanese and Palestinian youths in Beirut to seek revenge for the deaths of their families.
An Israeli Secret Service Agent, with a grudge against his adopted country, organizes the training of selected young men and women eager to carry out a deadly mission in America. The plan: to infest poultry, water foul, and fish with deadly flu viruses that will mutate to humans. The conspirators also have an antidote but will make it available only if America meets their demands.
During their final preparations in America, the mission members discuss the deep-rooted causes of conflict in the Middle East region. Faced with life in the United States, their desire for revenge weakens as some of the team members realize their actions will result in the killing of millions of innocent people. In the meantime, suspicions arise. Homeland Security is placed on alert and begins to close in on them. In the end, not all members are willing or able to carry out the plot.
Can – and will – those who remain put the deadly plan into action? And will their threats break the stalemate between the Israelis and Palestinians – or lead to an unparalleled tragedy?

This story stuck with me. In fact, after reading it, I thought about it every time I approached a chicken dinner.
Of course, it’s just a story, but it could happen.
Two Iraqi youths (one Christian and one Muslim) lose their homes and their entire families during the invasion of Iraq and vow revenge.
They, along with a group of other young Palestinian men and women with similar pasts, are recruited for a terrorist plot to infect American poultry, water foul and fish with a deadly virus that mutates to humans.
The author is a recognized expert on the Middle-East, and through his characters he presents interesting insights into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the global politics that keeps this international powder keg so near the flames of discontent.
"They Plotted Revenge" is a suspenseful blend of intrigue and romance, complete with a double agent working with the Israeli Secret Service. He masterminds the plot, but as the day of infestation nears, Homeland Security begins to close in on him. At the same time some of the people recruited to plant the virus become acquainted with a few Americans and realize their actions could kill millions of innocent citizens ignorant of actual events in the Middle-East. Most of them back out and head for home.
One, however, decides to carry out the plot, even after it is officially cancelled. To find out what happens next, you’ll have to read to book.
This is a story for our times, and it makes some pertinent points about the Middle-East conflict that threatens us all.
