The expanded 2nd edition is a winner. Develops the Mohammed and Eid characters and moved some of the technical details to the appendix. Great read.

Not many people could write this book, but Lee Boyland¿s background and in-depth knowledge of nuclear physics enables him to lay it out in terms that are as easy to understand as they are frightening. In addition to spelling out how a nuclear attack could be done from a technical standpoint, the author takes us into the minds of Muslim extremists who are intent on destroying modern civilization and taking humanity back to the seventh century. A believable plot, fascinating characters, and suspenseful writing combine to make THE RINGS OF ALLAH a must read for everyone, but especially for those who believe a terrorist nuclear threat in America is overblown. Such an attack won¿t be easy to pull off, but the author clearly shows that it can be done, and that we need to be ever vigilant. To paraphrase Secretary of State Rice, ¿The terrorists can make many mistakes. We just have to make one.¿ Highly recommended. Maurice Medland, author of CHINA STAR

Author Lee Boyland puts his extensive special weapons background to use in spinning this completely believable tale of al-Qaeda's next step after 9-11. Leftover Soviet technology from the beginning of the Cold War falls into al-Qaeda's hands, and they establish an intricate network in order to place five atomic devices in five US cities. The US gets word of the attack, but will it be in time? Boyland does a great job of mixing good character development with great technical background in order to create this story. Technical readers will appreciate his attention to detail as he relates and educates the reader on the workings of gun-type atomic weapons. Literature advocates will respect how he uses significant events to develop his main characters. Many new writers fall into the trap of trying to tell too much of the story, but Boyland avoids this by jumping sometimes a year ahead in the story in order to keep things moving. A great action story that is just a bit too possible, this is definitely worth it for action and techo fans alike.

Frighteningly real! Boyland, the new grand master of the techno-thriller, has given us a compelling page-turner that captures the reader with an avalanche of brilliant detail and well thought out characters complete with personality and quirks. ¿Rings¿ captures the reader with the clear possibility of nuclear attacks on U.S. soil by fanatical Muslim terrorists...

A frightening story. The possibility of terrorists actually being able to bring a nuclear weapon into the U.S. always seemed too far fetched to be taken seriously. I never related new articles about Iran, Iraq and North Korea enriching uranium to a specific danger to me. I never heard of a simple, uranium gun-type nuclear weapon. How easy it is to make one. After reading The Rings of Allah I am now concerned. Boyland show how it can be done, how we can be attacked with no warning. The first part of this book is written from the terrorists point of view. The reader sees the world through their eyes. A must read.

Lee Boyland¿s story of a nuclear terrorist attack on the U.S. hit the nail on the head. A plot that can happen today.

Once I got into the story I couldn¿t put it down. The ending was a page turner.

It is a pleasure to read a novel that has all its facts and technologies correct. The atomic bomb used does not require maintenance and a special fuze. The author describes how a simple gun-type atomic bomb, like the Little Boy, can be disassembled and brought into the U.S. as components, then reassembled. A devious scheme where the terrorists hide the weapons in plain sight. A page turning ending. The best techno-thriller since The Sum Of All Fears. This book gets it right.
