    more from this reviewer

    This is a fast-paced alternate historical thriller

    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.

    A very good start!

    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.

    I couldnt even finish it

    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.

    An Amazing, Fast Paced, Action Filled Adventure!

    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!
