"A.J. Tata is the new Tom Clancy" –Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THE LAST Patriot

In December 2001, CIA paramilitary operative Matt Garrett is mysteriously pulled from Pakistan as he closes in for the kill of Al Qaeda senior leadership and is reassigned to a low-profile mission in the Philippines. But as he sifts through the wreckage of a downed C-130 in the tangled jungle, he finds a dead U.S. Special Forces paratrooper who is not supposed to be there. He is quickly thrown into a contest of wits and resiliency in the uncharted rainforests of Mindanao.

Manipulated by the secret plans of a powerful quartet of upper-echelon Washington, D.C. defense politicos who call themselves the Rolling Stones, Matt and Zach Garrett establish their bona fides as true patriots on the cutting edge of freedom. They struggle for survival against the rising tide of Islamic extremism and the reemergence of the Empire of the Sun in the ever-expanding Global War on Terror.

In the stunning prequel to his award-winning novel Rogue Threat, A. J. Tata creates an uncanny sense of presence on and off the battlefield in Sudden Threat, a novel rife with conspiracy, diplomatic double-talk, betrayal, loyalty, valor and honor.

"Topical, frightening, possible, and riveting, A.J. Tata's debut novel SUDDEN THREAT should be read by all fans of military fiction. Mixing Dale Brown's exacting detail with Stephen Coonts edge-of-the-seat pacing, here is a story that demands to be read in one sitting." --James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of THE LAST ORACLE and THE JUDAS STRAIN

For his first novel A.J. Tata did a good job with Sudden Threat. He's not quite up to the level of a Thor or a Flynn yet but he's heading in the right direction. He uses his years of experience in the military to build on a very entertaining story.

This author has the potential to be quite good. But he has to stop writting like he is creating an after action report. Chapters way too short... not enough detail. Wasted my money and diddnt even finish it. If you gotta... dont buy them all at once.

9/11 will go down in infamy, but behind the scenes before, during and after, powerful forces have taken advantage to further secret agendas. Japanese Prime Minister Mizuzawa sees an opportunity in Pacific Asia with the Americans totally occupied with Afghanistan and seemingly Iraq. His New Japan has allies in DC especially with the "The Rolling Stones" who see the terrorist attack on American soil as a chance to redo the world in their image. In Pakistan CIA Agent Matt Garrett hunts down Al Qaeda top level authorities closing in on bringing home the head of Bin Laden on a platter. As he gets closer to his target working his way through a series on concentric circles protecting Bin Laden; he is abruptly pulled from the region and sent on what seems to him as a minor mission in the jungles of the Philippines. However, once there he finds who should not be there: a dead American soldier. As Matt digs deeper into this anomaly, he begins to realize that Muslim extremism is being used by Japan as a ploy to conceal their ambition to refight WW II with a different outcome. This is a fast-paced alternate historical thriller that hooks the audience throughout as General (retired) Tata provides an intriguing conspiracy premise. The action never stops coming whether it is in the Middle East, the eastern seaboard or the Asian Pacific. Although readers will feel the New Japan scheme and several inside the White House power moves are over the top of Mount Apo, conspiracy fans and military buffs will enjoy this post 9/11 one-sided tale that clearly shows the American military living up to its values.

Kronos begins by making you think it is a nice story of widowed, father seeking reconciliation with his rebellious daughter by taking her on a one in a lifetime, scuba dive in the Gulf of Maine, but the plot quickly turns ugly as an immense, unknown creature our seemingly out of the tales of mythology engulfs the young woman, leaving no trace of her or any of her gear. Atticus Young, the grief stricken, father can only watch as he saw it coming and could not even get her name out when the beast swallowed her. His momentary horror and paralysis quickly turn to anger and revenge as he heads to the surface to make his plans.
This quest for revenge leads him to meet up with a power hungry billionaire who makes his own heavily armed yacht available to Atticus with the only stipulation that when Atticus fells the great beast the corpse of the beast becomes the property of the billionaire as a trophy. It is from here that Atticus embarks on an extremely dangerous mission and encounters terrifying discoveries below the ocean¿s surface. This deadly journey is the stuff of myth and legends but with the skillful story telling it is not hard to imagine being mistakenly drawn into this terrifying underworld and the journey is an adventure well worth reading.

A.J. Tata has exhibited the calm, cool, and collected instincts of a seasoned combat leader under fire and displayed quite compassion while presenting the flag to mourning families after their Soldiers made the ultimate sacrifice for our Nation. A.J. Tata knows well what it takes to fight and win in the 21st century. He also understands at just what a price that victory comes. This unique knowledge lends itself well to this fast paced and compelling thriller. A.J. Tata is the real deal! 5 Stars!
