Publisher's Summary

Robert Ludlum's best-selling Covert-One series continues with an exciting new novel by New York Times best-selling author Kyle Mills.

An attack on a Japanese warship brings Japan and China to the brink of war. Meanwhile, top Covert-One operative Colonel Jon Smith is sent on a mission to recover mysterious material from the wreckage of the Fukushima nuclear reactor.

When Smith fails to return, CIA agent Randi Russell heads off on an unsanctioned mission to find him. She quickly discovers that the missing samples may be evidence that Japan, led by hawkish military chief of staff Masao Takahashi, has been secretly developing next-generation weapon systems in preparation for a conflict with China.

If the Covert-One team can't prevent General Takahashi from provoking a war, the entire world will be dragged into a battle certain to kill tens of millions of people and leave much of planet uninhabitable for centuries.

    "A Refreshing Change of Adversaries"

    If you like the Covert-One series and its characters, you'll enjoy listening to The Patriot Attack. Kyle Mills did an excellent job of spinning up a fast-paced story centered around a wealthy Japanese military powerbroker's attempt to position Japan as the world superpower. This is a refreshing change of villains from the usual group of Islamic extremists.

    Least anybody be offended by casting a Japanese as the villain, the Patriot Attack is more about one very powerful man's quest rather than that of a nation or religious interpretation.

    Broadly speaking, the story centers on the possibility of Japan overcoming its old rival China while subordinating the United States. A reader or listener has to suspend believability from time to time - but the characters are fun and the story is action-packed.

    Finally, I thought Jeff Woodman's performance added to the experience by artfully representing a broad range of characters of varying age, gender and nationality.

    On a more serious side, the story also points out how fighting the last war and spending a vast amount of money on the improvement of traditional weaponry might not be enough to maintain our status quo as the world superpower.

    This book isn't for everybody – but if you're a Covert-One fan, it's certainly for you.

    Story
    "KYLE MILLS IS AMAZING"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! Well written, suspenseful, and everything you could want from a covert one book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ummm Smith.. bc while he's no Scott Havarth ( Brad Thor's scott havarth books ) he finally steps into his full element in this chapter of the story. " Trust me when I say, it doesn't go any higher than me "


    What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    more suspense. always want more.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    And you thought you knew what happened... and you thought it was over.


    Any additional comments?

    "Nanotechnology - scary options"

    So much tech can be perverted and this story delivers one example that any lucid scientist could not deny is plausible (albeit years in the future).

    "Great book, but I wish Peter Howell was in it."

    Great book, but I wish there was more Marty Zellerbach in it, and included Peter Howell...

    "Nicely Done Kyle..."

    It's nice to have an alternative for my Vince Flynn addiction. It was an easy "read" and had me listening all the way through to the end.

    "Unbelievable but fun!"

    Much better than the previous book. Goo premise, but taken too far. However, well written, less "superman-y", and no boring parts. Worth the listen.
