In December 2001, CIA paramilitary operative Matt Garrett is mysteriously pulled from Pakistan as he closes in for the kill of Al Qaeda senior leadership and is reassigned to a low-profile mission in the Philippines. But as he sifts through the wreckage of a downed C-130 in the tangled jungle, he finds a dead U.S. Special Forces paratrooper who is not supposed to be there and is thrown into a contest of wits and resiliency in the uncharted rainforests of Mindanao.
Manipulated by the secret plans of a powerful quartet of upper-echelon Rolling Stones groupies in Washington, DC, Garrett and U.S. Armed Forces establish their bona fides as true patriots on the cutting edge of freedom as they struggle for survival against the rising tide of Islamic extremism and the reemergence of the Empire of the Sun in the ever-expanding Global War on Terror.
In the stunning prequel to his award-winning novel Rogue Threat, A.J. Tata creates an uncanny sense of presence on and off the battlefield in Sudden Threat, a novel rife with conspiracy, diplomatic double-talk, betrayal, loyalty, valor and honor.

I was deeply disappointed with this one. The narrator was absolutely horrible and the story line seemed a bit confusing and hard to follow.
Extremely distracting and added to the confusion.
First time with this author and not likely to repeat it.
The narration of this book is poor! I'm blind and am thankful for those that read these books but, this narrator lacks the feeling / passion of this story .
Just couldn't get into the people because of the reader.
Easy to get lost in this book. Poor transitions from scene to scene, one second you're in DC the next without warning, you are in Japan and time has jumped.
If any heros are left alive...then yes.
I enjoyed the story but the narration made it almost unbearable. Truly, this is the only book I almost gave up on simply because of the narration. It was not smooth, professional and the character differentiation was weak with poorly performed accents. I have listened to many books over many years, I should have stopped early on and just read the book myself. Good plot and characters.
Poor elocution, timing and lack of flow, character definition very weak. Accents almost insulting.
