Overview

What if a foreign rogue nation launched a war against the United States within its own borders? America's largest cities are in flames. Its majestic landmarks are in ruins. Electronic sabotage cripples its far-flung communications systems. Race battles against race in a raging civil conflagration. The first waves of a meticulously orchestrated international terrorist campaign have achieved a stunning and terrifying success. As grim national leaders hunker down with advisors, as the finest living minds in strategic intelligence together with state-of-the-art computers link up to search out and destroy the source of the savagery, as armies both with and without uniforms mobilize to win the ultimate unconventional war, two men - once friends, now adversaries to the death - race to a decisive confrontation. On one side is General Amir Taleh, an implacable foe of the United States, a nimble survivor of the brutal cross-currents of Iran's internal politics, and a shrewd fighter who believes that killing for revenge is pointless but killing for a higher purpose is justified. Opposing him are two American operatives who become tactical allies as well as unexpected lovers: Colonel Peter Thorn, the Delta Force veteran who has faced down the masters of terror on foreign soil and now feels powerless to defeat them at home; and Special Agent Helen Gray, as beautiful as she is a formidable player in the old-boy network of special operations. Together, they must find a way to defeat Taleh and his forces before the West awakens to its greatest nightmare of all.

Larry Bond rockets the international thriller to new heights with this story of a rogue foreign nation executing a ruthless campaign of terrorism and the U.S. soldier and counter-terrorism expert determined to stop the mass destruction--on a battleground that encompasses America's busy cities and quiet suburbs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
What would a terrorist siege be like in the United States? Not an isolated incident, but a wide, efficient campaign? Bond's (Cauldon, Warner, 1993) latest novel provides a graphic and plausible answer to this unsettling question. From a modest beginning (the Golden Gate Bridge at rush hour) to grander explosions (a race war in Detroit), Middle East terrorists remain several jumps ahead of FBI special agent Helen Grey and Delta Force's Peter Thorne as well as police, National Guard, and the Pentagon. Bond's expert knowledge of the latest military technology is as fascinating as his portrait of the terrorists. He spins a frightening thriller with a nightmare scenario of easy predation where all targets are soft and the hunters can pick their shots. This thriller will do well in public libraries. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/15/95.]-Ann Donovan, Clearwater P.L., Fl.
Kirkus Reviews
The ripsnorting, all-too-plausible latest from bestselling Bond (Cauldron, 1993, etc.) pits a duo of dynamic Americans against a mad Iranian bent on altering the geopolitical balance of power.

When Muslim fundamentalists detonate a gasoline tanker on the Golden Gate Bridge at the height of a morning rush hour, the loss of life shocks Washington into a retaliatory missile raid on Tehran. With the religious rulers and populace of the oil-rich country reeling from this blow, General Amir Taleh seizes complete control of the Defense Ministry with an eye to restoring the Islamic republic's lost glory. In aid of his vaultingly ambitious plan to annex Saudi Arabia by force of arms, he attempts to neutralize the US by unleashing on it US small bands of fanatical, well-trained terrorists whose atrocities appear to be the handiwork of indigenous white supremacists or militant groups of ethnic minorities. The coordinated campaign of nationwide bombings and massacres spawns copycat acts that strain the capacity of law- enforcement agencies to keep order. With America's social fabric unraveling, and the military tied down on guard duties calculated to lull the frantic public into a false sense of security, Army Colonel Peter Thorn (a counterterrorism expert with observer status on the case) unearths a computer-communications anomaly suggesting that offshore operatives are responsible for the evil deeds that have all but paralyzed the US. Helen Gray (Thorn's lover) and fellow FBI agents confirm his suspicions in a deadly assault on a safe house. The raid puts Helen in the hospital, but also yields enough information to send Thorn winging off to Tehran at the head of a Delta Force unit ordered to assassinate Taleh before he can launch his invasion fleet across the Persian Gulf.

A triple-A Bond.

From Barnes & Noble
The first wave of a meticulously planned terrorist campaign sponsored by a foreign rogue nation has succeeded in throwing the United States into a bloody civil war. As top counter-terrorist groups deploy state-of-the-art technology to search and destroy the source of the savagery, two American agents are hot on the trail of the mastermind. Now they must find a way to stop the shrewd terrorist and his well hidden forces--before America wakes up to an even bigger nightmare.

    A Page-turner, but not Bond's best!

    I like Larry Bond. I read him because I read all of Clancy's stuff. Although I enjoyed The Enemy Within, I liked Vortex and Red Phoenix much better. I wish Bond didn't use such trite expressions so much. He knew the terrain like 'the back of his hand' for instance, geez! I haven't decided how I feel about Helen Gray. Did Bond stick her in his novel to please feminists? I like her. I like Peter Thorn. But these characters just aren't very deep. We don't learn enough about them. I'm curious what's going to happen to Thorn after disobeying orders. I suppose he's trying to coax me to read his next book by not telling us what happens to him. I plan to read Day of Wrath. I suspect that I'll enjoy it. But I don't expect his work to equal Clancy's.

    One of Larry Bond's Best!

    This was the first book I read by Larry Bond, and I have to say it is one of my favorites! I have have read everything else by him, but I believe that this is his most intriguing and plausible story to date. It is extremely exciting and interesting, and is very hard to put down. I have recommended it to many people and they have loved it just as I have. Anyone who is interested in an exciting, action-packed story will enjoy this book and appreciate it immensely.
