Gary Haynes has the uncanny ability to take the reader right into the story as one of the characters.  He has his thumb on the pulse of the Middle East situation. State of Attack finds Tom Dupree searching for the terrorist, Ibrahim or The Sword of Allah.  This mission becomes extremely personal due to Ibrahim attack on Tom' father, a U.S. General.  Now deprived of the opportunity to reconcile with his father, Tom gives his all to bring down Ibrhim before he can launch his attack on US soil.  An attack that will be deadly but not military.   The tension builds for the opening pages of the story and never lets up.  Gary Haynes has done a wonderful job of presenting the volatile, turbulent political and religious situation in the Middle East.  An area where loyalties may not be as they seem.  Betrayal can occur for many reasons .  Fear rules the lives of those who live there.   Tom Dupree may be the new kid on the block in espionage novels...... but he will give the rest a run for their money.  Eagerly awaiting an new Dupree adventure.

Great religious/political thriller set largely in the Middle East This is simply a brilliant, fast moving, well researched political thriller following terrorists and those battling to defeat them. The story initially follows two main characters, Tom Dupree and Ibrahim - ‘The Sword of Allah’ - initially half a world apart but due to have significant impacts on each other’s lives. Many of the events described could easily be headlines in current news programmes about events in the Middle East, making the book more riveting and the events, however horrendous or traumatic, even more believable. Whilst the stories of the two men initially seem parallel, never to meet, they are destined to be adversaries in this multi-layered thriller that has short but punchy chapters which have their own cliff hangers to keep the reader enthralled and eager to read more. Definitely an author I’ll be looking out for in future bringing to life the political and religious turmoil currently present in Turkey and the Middle East. This is a book you’ll return to re-read, one to keep! Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

One of the best spy/counterterrorism thrillers I've read in ages. If you like fast-paced, action-packed thrillers in the style of Tom Clany and Brad Thor, you'll love this one. First rate book.

One of the best thrillers I've read in years. Complex, fast-paced, gritty, action-packed and intelligent. This thriller is so current it's scary!

Too many times the hero is captured, tortured and rescued. The ending is easy to figure. Still a good overall read and worth purchasing.

The author seems to have found the fool-proof recipe for creating fast paced, tightly knit, modern thrillers! aj west

Mr. Haynes has slammed 2 out of the park with his initial publications - look forward to the next installments.
