Reporter/author John Shiffman is no stranger to intrigue, having co-written the best-selling real-life thriller Priceless about an undercover FBI agent solving huge international art crimes. Now he's turned his non-fiction attention to a "high-risk undercover operation" designed to protect the nation's combat-zone military from American-made weapons.

Operation Shakespeare is subtitled The True Story of an Elite International Sting. Action in this book sweeps the globe "from Philadelphia to Shiraz to London to Beverly Hills to Tbilisi and Dubai. The sting is launched by an elite undercover Homeland Security unit created to stop the Iranians, Russians, Chinese, Pakistanis, and North Koreans from acquiring sophisticated American-made electronics capable of guiding missiles, jamming radar, and triggering countless weapons—from wireless IEDs to nuclear bombs."

Shiffman, a veteran journalist currently working as an investigative reporter for Reuters, frames Operation Shakespeare in the manner of a thriller while thoroughly explaining the all-too-frightening aspect of the reason it was launched.

The operation was conducted under a years-long cloak of secrecy. The book touches on all aspects from good guys to bad guys and stunning international arms market revelations.
