A political thriller with underlying themes of terrorism, political intrigue, and war, The Enemy of My Enemy by Richard Caldwell is a real masterpiece in the genre. Reflecting the reality of contemporary political and religious landscapes, this narrative follows Abdulla, a Saudi playboy, and a sociopath with an unusual dream. Plagued by hallucinations and dreams of a new caliphate, Abdulla gradually begins to hear a powerful voice in his head, one that gives him a new mission and a vision—to create a global caliphate. The thought of becoming the Caliph fascinates him. The thought of being the undisputed ruler of all the territory and all the inhabitants of the caliphate is irresistible. He would include infidel slaves and met out brutal penalties for breaking even minor laws. But to achieve this dream, he is about to set the US against Korea and start a war that will cripple world powers. And will the despised and unstable US President have the leadership that can stop evil of such magnitude? This is a thriller with an international setting and characters that readers want to follow. The POTUS can be read, especially by those who don’t like the current administration, as a powerful reflection of President Donald Trump. The plot is strong, the setting vividly portrayed, and the conflict staggering. The author plunges readers into the mind of the antagonist, exploring his sick ideas and following the complex plan he has laid out to destroy the world. The Enemy of My Enemy is brilliant; it is an engaging novel with relevant themes and characters that reflect a culture that threatens the survival of our world.
