Counter Poised by John Spikenard

Disturbing, interesting, amazing, exciting, and above all, thought-provoking. An action novel that deals with some of the most critical real-world issues we face today, including radical Islam. Radical Islamic terrorists are determined to acquire and use nuclear weapons against the West. The only thing standing in their way is our ability to stop them. There’s no downside for them because we can’t strike back in a similar fashion. The Cold War rules have changed—our massive nuclear arsenal of strategic bombers, missiles, and ballistic missile submarines is useless against terrorists who strike and hide. But can we deter them? That is, can we threaten retaliation so costly to them that they don’t even attempt to use nuclear weapons? One man thinks so. In this exciting story of intrigue, imaginative new technology, and under-water battle scenes, George Adams attempts to implement his solution to radical Islam and nuclear terrorism. But will it work? You be the judge.

Spikenard brings us intrigue, imaginative new technology, exciting underwater battle scenes, and a whirlwind of real-world political, social, and religious issues, all of which combine to provide an entertaining and compelling story of one man's solution to radical Islam and the threat of nuclear terrorism.
