Publisher's Summary

A plane bound for Amman, Jordan, goes down in the Caspian Sea. The crash yields no survivors - save the Russian mercenary who hijacked the flight - and a cask of bomb-grade uranium is missing from the wreckage. A carefully plotted terrorist attack has been put into motion, and the resulting chaos might be enough to push America toward another costly war.

The one man who might be able to stop the attack is Jack Hatfield, a freelance reporter who has never shied away from controversy. After making a politically incorrect statement about Islamic extremists, he has been discredited as a journalist and left to pick up the pieces of his career. But when his half brother Sammy calls him, saying that his neighbor, Ana, overheard something she shouldn't have and now both their lives are in danger, Jack realizes he's stumbled upon a conspiracy to blow up Mecca. Now he and a group of likeminded friends on the fringes of the law must uncover who is behind the plot and stop them - or else witness the collapse of the world into nuclear war.

    "Well paced and timely thriller"

    Michael Savage has given us another thriller based on his Jack Hatfield character. The story is timely and believable and the pace of the action keeps the reader engaged. Michael's character development is excellent, making one feel like they could know several of them. Sprinkled with humor and grit, along with humanities best and worst qualities. There are also enough twists to keep the reader guessing. A worthy addition to the series!

    "An Excellent Adventure"

    For years I have listened to Savage on the radio, my favorite radio episodes are the ones where he tells stories. When I found out that he wrote novels, I had to read/listen. He didn't disappoint me, as I knew he wouldn't.

    "Not a bad listen"

    Didn't manage to build the characters and their relationships as well as a Brad Thor, but still not a bad listen.

    "Not bad. Not great"

    Terrorist thriller with conservative political perspective. Not thrilling though not boring either. Trite in spots. Good beginning. As good as most "summer beach novels."
