Overview

Peace is an illusion . . .The Apocalypse is days away.

The world’s attention is focused on the historic plans of the U.S. and Iranian presidents to lay down their swords. But on the African continent, one man holds the power to obliterate the peace by unleashing terror and global chaos—and no one sees it coming.

Hiding behind the bloody madness of tribal warfare in the Horn of Africa, Iranian functionary-turned-fanatic Bani Aberhadji has achieved the impossible—single-handedly creating a vast, invisible network dedicated to the construction, delivery, and detonation of a nuclear nightmare. Only by chance are American agents now learning of its existence, and it may already be too late.

Born from the ashes of Dreamland, the covert strike force Whiplash is armed and ready to spring into action—led by Dreamland veterans Danny Freah and former acepilot, now Washington insider, Breanna Stockard. But Aberhadji’s web of death is wide and well concealed . . . and the doomsday clock is ticking.

This is not a thriller, even though promised on the cover. The characters are almost non-dimensional and the plot is both contrived and trite. This book seems to be an attempt to capitalize on the author's name and previous successes. How can one believe that a senior manager (Bree) leaves her post in DC to fly a cargo plane whose co-pilot has suddenly become ill, the plane is carrying combat helos and then she is able to fly one to the rescue of her team in the Sudan? Where are the plot twists? Where are the surprising characters? Brown/Defelice and their editor/publisher needed to put some more work into this one...

I am a fan of both the authors, however, when you take old folks and try to make them into the hero's they were 20 ago, it just does not work. Should have left them in retirement.

Author should have juststarted a new series instead of trying to make believe that this is another Dreamland book. Half way done and i am bored to tears.
