About the story?... quoting from the backcover:

After a terrorist bomb takes covert agent, Kelly Rogers’ life, he awakens in the hospital, in his Arab killer’s body also killed but brought back to life by the doctors. This extraordinary occurrence leads him on a bizarre odyssey, thwarting terrorist plots, which includes a nuclear attack on Las Vegas.

Supporting Kelly on his mission, are two extraordinary beauties, Mariam, a cerebral, former Miss Pacific Rim - his killer’s wife and Jane, physically, perhaps the most deadly woman alive - Kelly’s undercover handler.

In addition, Kelly has become a Muslim Icon, looked up to by a growing number of Muslim clerics as the ‘Chosen One,’ a new prophet, who allegedly met with Allah, in Heaven, and was afterward, returned to Saudi Arabia, after being tasked to be his worldly representative - "The Right Hand of Allah."

About the author’s writing style:

It is clearly evident that D. E. Dawning is knowledgeable about Arabs, Muslims and ‘contemporary terrorism.’ His style is straight-forward, action thriller, but to my taste, the dialogue is too cliched and imitative. For a BookSurge POD published novel, The Right Hand of Allah is well edited with an artistic, appealing cover.

If you enjoy action-packed, sexually-erotic, contemporary thrillers, you may enjoy this novel.
