Dancing with the Devil is the second book in the trilogy, The
Trojan Horse in the Belly of the Beast, by Carl Douglass. The
determined senior officials of the Iranian government present their
progress to the Supreme Leader who is highly displeased with the
effort and the accomplishment. He urges them to create a nuclear
weapon with promises and veiled threats. The members of the U.S.
ultrasecret Iran Nuclear Weapons Interdiction Project meet to find
a wayÑany wayÑto prevent the religious extremists
from getting a bomb. The two opposing forces drive inexorably
towards an ultimate crisis, and Dr. Afsoon Mouradipour and Dr.
Gideon Emmanuel Rothsberger are caught in the vortex of the
whirlwind created by the two polar opposite forces converging on
them. Despite the obstacles and the improbability of success,
Afsoon agrees to become the Trojan Horse; and Gideon falls in love.
