Overview

The third political thriller in the Executive series by Gary Grossman.

The clock is ticking down to an attack on America's most vulnerable natural resource: Water. Our nation's water resources are high on terrorist target lists, but low on America's consciousness. Water sources are largely unprotected, providing open access to any enemy with chemicals and biotoxins.

So far we've been lucky. But that luck won't last.

This is the all-too-real-and-present danger facing President Morgan Taylor and Secret Service Agent Scott Roarke as they desperately try to prevent hell-bent terrorists from destroying America and its infrastructure city by city, and state by state.

Fact-based in frightening detail, EXECUTIVE COMMAND is a political thriller that will leave you pondering its strong possibility the next time you pour a glass of water.

Our nation’s water resources are high on terrorist target lists, but low on America’s consciousness. Water sources are largely unprotected, providing open access to any enemy with chemicals and biotoxins. So far we’ve been lucky. But that luck won’t last. This is the all-too-real-and-present danger facing President Morgan Taylor and Secret Service Agent Scott Roarke as they desperately try to prevent hell-bent terrorists from destroying America and its infrastructure city by city, and state by state. Fact-based in frightening detail, Executive Command is a political thriller that will leave you pondering its strong possibility the next time you pour a glass of water. a Rafflecopter giveaway “Executive Command” is more than just a good read this is a terrifying look at the situation the world is in today. In the Fifties and Sixties we had The Cold War where we lived under the threat of nuclear destruction. Now we have terrorists who are out for for mass destruction and death. Their threat is real and this time their target is our water supply. Gary Grossman has given us a page turning thriller that will keep us glued to our chairs. Scott Roarke has his hands full as he is racing about trying to stop this devastating attack while staying alive at the same time. Thank you Gary Grossman for giving us a thriller that not only is super exciting but oh so real and contemporary.

I loved this book. It has everything I look for in a good book-mystery, suspense, conspiracy, and action! If you like Dan Brown's books, you will like Gary Grossman! Just remember that this is #3 in the series. You need to read the other two first in order to have a great background for this one. You absolutely must read this one and the whole Executive Series trilogy!

"Executive Command" takes off from the first eBook page. A shooting at a Houston airport. Where does this lead? Everywhere across the country, to Russia and a swarm of terrorists in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay. This time, author Gary Grossman drills down on what could very well be our most unprotected natural resource. If under attack or even threatened on a large scale, we could face immense national panic and disruption to every aspect of American life. And I'm not not talking about oil. Not to give anything away that you won't find in the introduction, it's water. And if you think it's safe, you'll be thinking differently after reading (maybe non-stop) "Executive Command." Many of Grossman's characters from Executive Actions and Executive Treason return here. But this time he has the enemy working out of South America. They join forces with one of America's toughest gangs. An exciting hybrid. A political thriller that jumps out with eye-popping front page news, a novel that moves like an action movie, and a contemporary story that touches on relevant history. I'm already craving the next installment.
