Overview

INTERDICTION is the parallel lives of two young men growing up in today’s global culture and how their lives are changed by the threat of terrorism. One is born in Iraq to educated parents and the other is a young American boy—the same age – born on his father’s earlier duty stations in Pakistan. DJ as he is called by his friends speaks several different Middle Eastern dialects as a result of his father—a Brigadier General in the US Army—moving his family with him as he moved up in the ranks. DJ graduates from school and is accepted at West Point following his father’s footsteps while Haydar, the Iraqi youth, is influenced by glowing stories of Al Qaeda and becomes an Islamic Muhadeen. During the hunt for terrorists that have stolen a formidable high energy Bio-chem from a Pakistani laboratory, DJ and his Homeland Security team get involved in the first use of an airborne laser as a weapon of war and a possible DNA connection to OSBL. DJ and Haydar collide when terrorists plan to poison the Guadalupe River in Gruene Texas on a busy summer weekend with students from Texas State University rafting and floating the river. The chase action and tracking of the terrorists across the globe to their target in the United States makes for an exciting adventure.

    Fast moving and interesting story---timelne is now

    This was a surprise. I'm a student at Texas U San Marcos Texas and the story started in Iraq but ended in my back yard!! Good characters and the way they move from one area to another keeps you interested in what comes next. Evidently the author---Gast stays up with new weapons better than Clancy does--the airborn laser used in the part taking place in India was just in the news a few months ago. His character, "DJ" has some bright friends and he sounds a lot like vince Flyn's Mitch Rapp but a lot younger. I'm glad to see that this is the first in a new series and believe me,---I'll be in line for the next book.

    Airborne Laser and other technical toys are actual

    This is one that is right on the money when it comes to close-to-reality action. The author's description of the chase from Pakistan to Texas makes this thriller a page turner by defination. I tried to close it three times before I could leave it and go to bed. The fact that it is the first in a series---hopefully using the same characters--DJ Jacobs and the girl FBI agent and even the antagonist Haydar---makes it a book that you want to keep handy on your shelf when you get the next title.
