Author’s Note

The notion of a terrorist group, no matter how motivated or extremist, that is dedicated to the immediate overthrow of a major world power and the extinction of all human life may seem far-fetched. Shoko Asahara and the Aum Shinrikyo had billions of dollars, dozens of top Japanese scientists as members, and the will to carry out an aggressive and deadly WMD campaign. As of this writing, Shoko Asahara has recently been sentenced to death, but his cult is still richer than many corporations, remains powerful in Japanese politics, and continues to carry his message.


This novel is entirely a work of fiction. The names, characters and incidents portrayed in it are the work of the author’s imagination. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, events or localities is entirely coincidental.
