Ann Bridges hits a bulls-eye in exposing the potential devastation of a Western world reliant on Silicon Valley technology, and ultimately taken hostage by a Chinese embargo of rare metals crucial to sustaining our way of life―and how we defend it. The sequel to Private Offerings, Ms. Bridges’ debut Silicon Valley novel, Rare Mettle is a no-holds-barred depiction of modern U.S. military weapons impeded by myopic political posturing, and double agents so deeply embedded, success dictates a monumental collaboration of unlikely partners―high-tech innovators and government agents―seemingly the only parties who realize the lethal potential of this new world order.
The reality that American military strength and technology prowess could come under attack if China decides to flex its political muscle, limiting exports of rare components vital to Silicon Valley and defense contractors, is brought to life through Ms. Bridges' exhaustive research, finessed with input from government insiders. In Rare Mettle, politicians and CEOs busily protect their careers, while special agent Paul Freeman fights to rescue his assigned operative in China, who possesses inside intelligence vital to America. Unexpected alliances bulldoze the status quo with courage and conviction, leveraging state-of-the-art surveillance technology in a breakneck effort to defend and protect all they hold dear: their national pride, their families...and their futures.
