Overview

A suspense-thriller about a nightmare scenario-a countdown to a Mumbai-style attack on U.S. soil, where the FBI, the Israeli Mossad, the US-based Iranian clandestine terror network, and the Islamic Jihad fraternity, all engaged in a timeless conflict, which plays out to a crescendo that comes to a head before the dramatic conclusion.

The story offers an ample dose of realism, a cast of intense characters who engage in love, lust, and violence. It portrays the Jihad culture with its rationale and the volcano that breeds an irrational obsession with death. Moreover, it builds on the Jihadists' motivation for targeting so many innocents and exploiting the victims' massacre as a stepping-stone to their dream of eternal paradise next to Allah's throne.

The real question is not whether Jihad terrorists' plots will ever cease to emerge-there is no chance of that. The question the book seeks to answer is, will the next one be stopped before it's too late?

Editorial Reviews

-- Midwest Book Review
A suspenseful and topical thriller, highly recommended
-- Readaholic
An action packed thrill-ride that doesn't let up
Charles Benninghoff LA Conservative Examiner
This story is so well developed and told, it took everything I had to put the book down and go to sleep! I give it an A+
-- RLDBooks.com
This author knows his stuff and uses his knowledge authoritatively in this brand new, exciting, heart-stopping thriller. You'll never look at terrorism the same way again.
-- Luxury Reading
An action-packed, fictional account of what could possibly happen on US soil…or what has already been prevented behind the scenes of normal American life.
