Manhattan Lockdown by Paul Batista

Terrorists’ bombs explode in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Manhattan in lockdown.

A birthday party on a beautiful summer Sunday afternoon on the roof garden of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the guest of honor, Roland Fortune, mayor of New York City.

Suddenly multiple explosions rock the entire building. This is not an accident, not a gas leak, but a heinous act of terrorism. Among the injured is the mayor himself, and although he survives, the woman he loves does not. And the terrorism does not stop there. As the city’s other iconic sites are targeted, the mayor throws Manhattan into lockdown.

In the chaos that ensues, law enforcement groups converge on New York City. The FBI, Homeland Security, the armed forces, even the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the President, come to the aid of the New York City Police Department.

Amidst this massive joint effort, only New York City Police Commissioner Gina Carbone is closing in on the terrorists. Her tactics well outside legal bounds, her cell operating in total secrecy, Carbone takes vigilantism to a new level. Will her illicit actions succeed—or plunge the city into further catastrophe?

A huge rooftop birthday celebration for Mayor Roland Fortune at the Metropolitan museum is quickly brought to an end when terrorist nearly bring the building down. The mayor is one of those left injured. Many are dead; and more are about to die as New York City is taken siege as more bombs are triggered at other landmarks. Fortune locks down the city in hopes of trapping the terrorist within its boundaries. The President and others from various government agencies come together with aid of the battered city. Police Commissioner Gina Carbone uses her man power to find the terrorist and exterminate them and she is willing to use any means or tactics necessary, legal or not. From beginning to end Manhattan Lockdown will have you on the edge of your seat. With world events as they are this is a scary look at what is possible and what we are willing to do to keep it from happening. My rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Simply Amazing. When you start this book, set aside a few hours. You will definitely not want to put it down. Paul Batista is such a talent. The story gets straight into it in the first few pages. One minute there’s a party with the likes of Matt Damon & Robert De Niro, and then all hell breaks loose with a couple of explosions. My favourite character was Police Commissioner Gina Carbone, a tough gritty no nonsense female. Who is ex- military and really knows how to take charge and go after the terrorists. The story moves along at a good pace, with plenty of things happening, all the way through to a great ending. I can see why the Author has received 5 stars for his other books, well deserved. Add this book to your reading list, you won’t be disappointed.
