More About This Book

Overview

The invasion of America was easy.

There were no amphibious landings; no paratroopers fell from the sky.

They numbered not in the thousands, but tens of thousands.

We worked with them, trusted them, loved them.

Behind their serene exteriors beat hearts filled with hatred. The death of every American, young and old, was their goal.

We made it easy for them.

'If you strike their cities, their strength will be exhausted and their spirits will break!"

-Sun-tzu, The Art of War

Ryker nodded to the members of the press standing before him, 'Ladies and gentlemen, over the past forty-eight hours there have been four horrific and evil terrorist attacks conducted against the innocent members of this community and this country. These attacks have resulted in the deaths of one hundred and forty-seven American citizens, and that number will no doubt climb further, though we all hope and pray that it does not. The killers made no distinctions between man, woman or child. They attacked without provocation our homes, a place of worship and those among us who are the most vulnerable," the crime scene photos from the group home still glaringly fresh in his mind. 'I believe these targets were specifically chosen for the severe emotional impact they would wreak on us as a nation. The attacks were meant to rattle our state of mind and destroy faith in our way of life. We, as a people, must unite and refuse to allow that to happen."

    Will shake your very soul!

    I bought this book after the cover graphics drew me in! Boy I didn¿t know what I was getting. Mr. Wing has written a novel like no other and it is truly frightening! The book explores what might happen if all of our worse fears regarding terrorists attacks on US soil were to be carried out. In this book, terrorist hit out beloved nation across the board like a Juggernaut! Mr. Wing speaks about the demise of the #2 leader of al-Qaeda being taken out in US raid. He writes that the Republicans would be voted from office in a landslide election. He wrote that oil prices would surpass $75 a barrel due to huge hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico. Being the book was published last year and knowing that the publishing process takes time, this is truly amazing foretelling in my opinion. If one reads closely, they will find other tidbits of true events occurring after the book was written. What I found interesting was late in 2005 a married terrorist couple from Jordan, the first married terrorist couple on record, walked into a hotel wedding reception and ignited bombs. How does this relate to Mr. Wing's book you might ask? Well, the antagonists in the first half of Invasion America just happen to be a Jordanian married couple hiding here in the US. Coincidence? Or is something more going on here? This book is not the usual, 'Bad guys attack and the hero saves the day.' If that is what you want, then don¿t waste your time. If, however, you want to read something entirely different that will shake your very soul and open you eyes to how truly vulnerable we are, then make Invasion America the next book you read. I promise you will not look at national security the same ever again. This novel is truly action packed from beginning to end and the author doesn't simply blow something up, he walks you very visually through the entire event. It left me feeling as if I had just read a movie. Furthermore, unlike a lot of novels these days, the author obviously wasn't concerned with the length of the novel because he didn't take the time to pad the book with a lot un-needed filler. Although, at over 340 pages it is a lengthy read. If you're considering purchasing a book as a Christmas present for someone special this holiday season, then forget the authors you know and give this new guy a try. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

    A WAKE UP CALL FOR US ALL

    Absolutely gripping! While this is a novel, the real terror is in how simple it is for this story to become reality. It's entirely plausable and probable. Read this and you will not question the necessity of any government spying on our emails or phone calls. You'll be begging for it. Read this, if you dare, and see what the terrorist want for us. Read this and know how vunerable we really are. Kuddos, Mr. Alan. Alfred Hitchcock would have me squirming in my seat but you, sir, have kept me there holding its edge and my breath. Invasion America! should be required reading for every citizen and especially those charged with our safety and security. Lynne Smith, Monroe, North Carolina

    Awesome! Awesome!

    This book is AWESOME!!!. Everyone should read it. This could very possibly happen in the United States. It has made me aware of my surroundings and what is going on around me. I value life much more and thank God we still live in a free country.

    The most gripping story I've read in years!!!

    This book grabs you from the first page and doesn't let go for the duration! It is an edge-of-your-seat page turner that will scare you, make you angry, make you check your windows at night and certainly be more aware of what goes on around you. I don't look at anything in my community the same way I did before reading this book! I have read many books, by well-known authors, that claim to be action-packed, but this one definitely delivers the goods. An absolute MUST-READ!!

    Grabbed my attention immediately

    Not only did the title of this book grab my attention, but the cover graphics just drew me right in. I cannot wait to read this new author's offering. From his introduction I can tell this author has put together a story unlike any before it. BRING IT ON!!!!

    Chilling

    Puts you on the edge of your seat and keeps you there throughout. Should be required reading for all...especially our elected officials and anyone charged with protecting the citizens of this country.
