Overview

The Jericho Sanction: A Novel by Oliver North

Oliver North follows his best-selling novel Mission Compromised with a suspenseful, action-packed sequel set in Israel and Iraq. Lt. Col. Peter Newman (USMC) and his family are threatened when his cover is blown. While preparing for a clandestine U.S. mission to find Iraqi nuclear weapons, Newman’s wife Rachel is kidnapped in Jerusalem—along with her friend, the wife of an Israeli Sayeret counter-terrorism operative responsible for Israeli terrorist assassinations. 

Newman has to choose whether to go ahead with the mission or abandon it to find and rescue his wife. But Israel has discovered that Iraq has nukes and plans a preemptive attack on Baghdad with Jericho missiles. If that happens, and Islamic terrorists like Saddam and bin Laden respond in kind, it might trigger a Middle East war that could go global. It seems as if nothing can prevent an Armageddon.

We were surprised when we read North's earlier novel ("Mission Compromised") at what a talented storyteller he is! He is able to weave a very suspenseful tale of military and political intrigue with a touch of love and romance plus positive spiritual elements to add up to a novel that both my husband and I enjoyed a great deal.

Oliver North and Joe Musser have created an above average techno-thriller with a great cast of characters. The story revolves around Marine Lt. Colonel Peter Newman. There are three nuclear artillery shells hidden in Iraq, sold to one of Saddam Hussein's henchmen (long dead) by the traitorous Soviet general, Komulakov. American and Israeli intelligence are made aware of the weapons existence by the frantic search of the Iraqis to find the hidden weapons. Newman must go into Iraq and find the weapons before Israel unleashes a preemptive nuclear strike. Meanwhile, Newman's wife Rachael and friend Dyan are kidnapped and held hostage by Komulakov. Komulakov wants Newman to uncover a mole in the American intelligence service that can expose his treachery and ruin his chance of disrupting the election of Putin so he can grab the Russian presidency for himself. There are some great sequences of small unit covert actions and interesting information about satellite reconnaissance and electronic intercept capabilities.

Oliver hits home with this one. He really captures 'slick Willie' and his cohorts as they very well might have been during the 90's. He weaves fact into fiction and back again. Semper Fi Col. North...Good Job

I absolutly love this book I could'nt put it down. I love it because it has action and tactics. I think it needs 10 Stars this is also my favorite book. It keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time from the first chapter to the last. I can't wait to read the next. I hope there is a next. Way to Go Ollie! This book inspired me to join the armed forces when I can in 2 yrs. I am already thinking it would be cool if Peter Newman became CinC of CENTCOM. ( Commander in Cheif of Central Command) USMC

Though at a recent book signing for this novel Col. North stressed the fact that it is 'Fiction', you may tend to forget this many times during the reading. It feels as though you are privy to 'secret' info on current affairs which makes it hard to put down! I find myself turning off the 'real' news which never actually has an ending to their stories and open this book to get to the 'end' of its story. If you are into and find youself sometimes overloading on current affairs, its a refreshing escape from reality that makes you ponder reality at the same time! A rare combo in a book!

This book has a great premise and written by a man who has been there. The plot: Somewhere in Iraq are hidden nuclear weapons and the race is on to find them. However, the story is riddled with plot flaws and inconsistencies. It's like a John Woo film without the action! For example, the bad guy finds the weapons. He is extremely careful about hiding them. the authors go into detail about how careful he is to keep the location secret. Yet our hero catches up to them almost immediately! I found myself putting the book down in frustration often. The other thing that I didn't like was the religious banter. Not that religion was brought up so often. However, the way it was presented seemed like something to fill pages with it didn't add to the story at all. Overall, the author is not a story teller and didn't connect to me.
