In the world of espionage and terrorism, nothing is ever quite what you expect. It's always worse.
Beck Casey, the college-professor-cum-spy protagonist of the best-selling Final Epidemic, returns, now to confront the very real nightmare that that haunts every national-security expert today: nuclear terrorism in the American homeland. Joining him in Fire of the Prophet is a cast of faces both new and familiar:
In suspense-filled progression, Fire of the Prophet builds from an opening set along the U.S.-Mexican border through the battlefields of the Middle East, and ultimately takes the listener to a looming Armageddon... in the capital of the United States.

"Earl Merkel's new thriller, Fire of the Prophet, is a frightening and extremely well-crafted narrative of today's domestic-terror nightmare, from the specter of the 'blue-eyed terrorist' to the dark international conspiracies aimed at the heart of America in our world today." (Bob Hamer, author of The Last Undercover and former FBI undercover agent)
Totally addicted to Audible.
I really like the Beck Casey character but the story of this book is just not as good as Final Epidemic. Maybe it was more espionage and less family but it did not draw me in and hold me. I do look forward to more of this series though as they are well written books.
