Overview

PENTAGON’S HAMMER is played out during a twelve day global event involving the United States, North Korea, India, Pakistan, the Pacific Rim, and, on a peripheral scale, Cuba, China, and Russia. The stage was set with 9/11 on the New York trade center, when Islamic extremists successfully carried out the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Years later, following the outsourcing of critical and sensitive programs by the defense department, vital information for the NSA’s most critical, and highly classified satellite system, the ASATs (attack satellites), falls into the hands of the adversary.

The adversary, HASAN HAMMAD, principal Jihad antagonist to the Unites States and the free world, by manipulating critical satellites is able to puncture the U.S. defense shield. The earliest indication to the breach is detected by TRACY BAUER, NSA Intel strategist. The protagonist, ALEX BAUER, long time defense analyst and design engineer with DOD and BMO (Ballistics Missiles Office), comes across classified information on EMP and its inherited vulnerability.

Whereas EMP, electromagnetic pulsing, is a highly sophisticated process generated by an atomic explosion, it can also be set off through a simple and inexpensive trigger device. What makes it even more detrimental, this science and technology has been hidden from the public eyes since the inception of the atomic bomb. Through vital intelligence leaks and organizational compromises created by current economic conditions, however, North Korea, Pakistan, Iran, and the Jihad have gained knowledge for this once closely guarded secret.

The antagonist, manipulating the U.S. defense grid, is setting off a chain of events culminating in a series of confrontations. Our defense and intelligence organizations become intricately involved in the strike, counter strike, retaliation, and reprisal. Each chapter, within the twelve days of global events describe character, initiative, environment, action, reaction, and resolution with strong character support interdependent of each other as presented through the sphere of a global theater.

The enemy, in the heart of the nation unleashes a series of assaults through nuclear, chemical and biological means affecting the lives of every citizen across the country. With every defense mechanism rendered ineffective the nation is brought to its knees resulting in an economic Armageddon effecting commerce, power, utilities, communication, banking, finance, Wall Street, transportation, hospital, emergency operation, law enforcement, national defense, government and the military, not to mention the lives of millions of U.S. citizens.

What makes the novel unique is the intricate knowledge of the writer in the Intel community, the defense system, and the nation’s nuclear strike capability. Furthermore, the story has unique twists not tackled before.

    WOW¿I couldn't wait to turn the page! The Mystery leading up to

    WOW…I couldn't wait to turn the page! The Mystery leading up to “Day-6” is extremely clever. The “Serpent” is notorious; the villain you love to hate…always two moves ahead of the opposition. Alex: The hero—dedicated—focused—determined to solve the mystery. The aerial scenes are intense…Helicopter dogfights in the dark of night! Commercial air carriers clinging to any signs of hope! And, pitting WWII Fighter planes against modern day Jet Fighters offers a clever twist to a seemingly hopeless situation. And, who can forget Scott Brooks, a killer by trade, a dedicated friend at your side, and an angel watching your back… Kudos to the Author for laying out a controversial yet fictional peek into the internal workings of the “Intel” community—delivering an entertaining combination of Action/Adventure, Mystery and intrigue... “A must read!”

    “Great story…lots of action…well written! The characters are well
    defined and intriguing. The main antagonist is highly elusive,
    skillful, and conning… Very entertaining and educational…you’ll learn a
    lot about the government and survival…”

    WHAT A THRILL RIDE!

    Pentagon's Hammer had me hooked from the first page to the last. Fast paced action, unseen twists & believable characters make this book a joy to read. The hero is someone you'd want to watch your back when trouble comes calling.......the bad guy is your worst nightmare walking in the door. While the book is a work of fiction, it gives the reader a in depth look at the race our intelligence community is in to keep the US safe and strong. The author has included footnotes as a roadmap through the world of the alphabet agencies & the modern weapons used by our government & the enemies of our nation. As an avid reader of this type of fiction, I happily recommend Pentagon's Hammer!
