Publisher's Summary

Jake Grafton races against time to extinguish a harrowing terrorist plot in Washington, D.C., and prevent all-out catastrophe from enveloping the nation.

When the psychotic Colombian drug lord Chano Aldana is extradited to the United States for trial, he brings his army of vicious mercenaries with him. And as Aldana’s hit men target the President of the United States, the capital is plunged into chaos that only veteran fighter pilot Jake Grafton can stop. With the help of an investigative journalist and an undercover agent, Grafton must find the deadly assassins before they can strike again. But time is running out, and the future of the country hangs in the balance.

    Story
    "Narco Terror?"

    What if narco terrorists with lots of money hired mahem and anarchy in the US? Applied the same strong arm tactics to the USA as to Columbia or Venezuela? That's the thesis of this book and Jake Grafton plays a small but crucial role. I was surprised that the US leadership did not apply interdiction in Columbia to the story; it would have improved some. Instead, the author stayed with tactical roles, even making the CJCS a tactical commander. I liked the book and am looking forward to the next in the Grafton series.

    Story
    "A few hours too long"

    This was surprisingly difficult to listen to. It was all over the place. I must have pressed fast forward over 100 times because I was so bored. Too little time was spent on the parts that would have made it a good book. I am extremely disappointed and do not recommend this book.

    "Awful!"

    Too long, too improbable! Mostly a waste of time and a perfectly good Audible credit. I'll not waste any time on this "author" again.

    Story
    "Different"

    Don't get me wrong I liked this book but it was a little hard to see how it fit in the story line of Jake Grafton the great Navy Pilot/hero. When the story became obvious it was certainly different than all the other Jake Grafton books. If I didn't know better I thought that Coonts was introducing an new character in this book.
