(Las Vegas, NV)— Joseph R. Pesta, published by iUniverse, Inc., announced today…

Countdown, the new science fiction novel by author Joseph R. Pesta, is available in wide release from retailers and online vendors worldwide.

About the book: A science fiction thriller full of action, mystery, intrigue, and suspense, Countdown follows Agent Jake Keeler on a mission that spans three worlds. A powerful missile has been stolen. A growing terrorist organization has laid down its demands. If their deadline isn’t met, the destruction of half a planet will soon follow. Millions will die, and a vital economic agreement, created to unite the three habitable worlds of the Ziara system, will never come to pass. Having already mysteriously lost four of its top agents trying to track down the terrorist leader, the Bureau—the most known and feared organization in the charted galaxy—sends out its best agent to stop the terrorist threat before it is too late. Can Agent Jake Keeler put an end to the plans of the terrorists before the lives of millions are lost, or will the countdown begin toward the destruction that will change the face of the Ziara system forever?

Pesta recently. “I really enjoyed writing this novel, stepping into the world of these characters. I’m glad to see it being released, and happy to see all of the positive feedback surrounding it.
