Halfway across the continent, a massive cargo ship moves out of Sudan's largest port. Buried deep within its hold is one container of urgent significance for its buyer in the Persian Gulf.

It's one week before Independence Day, and an unpopular president is preparing to host America's biggest celebration in years. There's just one small problem: he's not the only one with plans for the holiday.

"Elliott Garber's debut thriller The Chimera Sequence has everything I love in a novel: great characters, a thrill ride of an adventure, and a looming global menace. But best of all, the story hooked me from the first intriguing page to the last illuminating line. I can't wait to see what this guy writes next!" (James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of the The Sixth Extinction)
"Elliott Garber has delivered a high-stakes thriller that will earn your attention with clean, clear prose and a solid grasp of global geopolitics. The Chimera Sequence is terrifyingly realistic, chock-full of research that rings as true as today's headlines." (Bob Mayer, former Green Beret and New York Times bestselling author)
"I couldn't put down Garber's engaging, rapid-paced, action-packed thriller. His riveting first novel benefits greatly from his experience as an Army veterinarian who has worked with a variety of unlikely animals around the world. The book even features important appearances from a military dog, a Secret Service dog, and a tracker bloodhound. What's not to love?"
