Shahbaz Rising
by Robert J. Rogers

When Esther, a beautiful, brilliant, and successful young American woman with a degree in engineering physics, meets a handsome, mysterious Iranian man while on a vacation, her world is shattered when he advises her that she is not who she believes she is. The couple who raised her are not really her parents, and she has another family she has never met back in the Middle East. She subsequently loses her job in the defense industry and is deported, sent back to Iran, where she must begin a new life in a world she doesn’t know or understand. As Esther’s anger toward the country that rejected her grows, intensified by a string of heartbreaking events, she becomes involved with a terrorist group planning a major attack on the United States.

ROBERT JAMES ROGERS joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1964 and travelled all over the globe during his thirty-three-year naval career, working as an anti-submarine air control officer, executive officer of a minesweeper, senior watchkeeper, and the combat control officer of a destroyer. He also worked in emergency planning before he was moved into naval Intelligence for the second half of his career. He has a degree in history and political science from the University of Manitoba and worked as the administrator of a minor hockey association, the administrator of a large evangelical church, and a peace officer with the Edmonton Police Service before finally retiring in 2016. In 2022, Robert was awarded the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medal for his valuable voluntary contributions to the Province of Alberta by the Lieutenant Governor of the province.
