Publisher's Summary

Packed with high-powered action and stunning authenticity, the novels of Brigadier General A.J. Tata have won widespread acclaim from the bestselling masters of suspense. In Direct Fire, he brings the war on terror to America - with his hero, Jake Mahegan, caught in the crossfire...

A powerful banker, gunned down in cold blood. A military family, senselessly slaughtered as they sleep. A four-star general, hacked and framed by virtual assassins. Another key general, kidnapped from his farm near Fort Bragg. Atrocities like these are all too common in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. But this is the United States of America...

When Jake Mahegan receives a distress call from General Savage in North Carolina, he rushes to the commander's home - and walks right into an ambush. When the smoke clears, Mahegan is alive but the implications of the attack are as absolute as death: The terrorists are here...and no one is safe. Joining forces with Savage's combat JAG officer, Alexandra Russell, Mahegan follows the trail to a killer who goes by the name "Jackknife," a Syrian refugee-turned-terrorist who vows to avenge the bombing of a Syrian wedding - by killing as many Americans as possible.

But time is running out for Mahegan. Terrorist cells are gathering in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Hackers are emptying the nation's banks of millions of dollars. And their final act of vengeance will bring the whole world to its knees. For Mahegan, it's time to kill. Now.

Interesting All The Way

I think this is my favorite book in the series. It delves into the complex side of good and bad in each of us, without preaching or losing sight of the action. The action is non-stop and adds to the storyline instead of filter for adrenalin junkies. Well worth a credit.

Great Thriller with excellent narration

What did you love best about Direct Fire?

A fast-paced, realistic and terrifying plot, rich details and engaging descriptions of the action kept me on the edge of my seat.

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

This book could easily be made into a film.

True Thriller

I have listened to all of the Jake Mohegan books to date and each one gets better. This one I did not want to put down. It keeps you guessing at every turn.

Book 1 had promise Book 4 Ended it

Book 1 Foreign and Domestic showed real promise for a new series, Book 2 Three Minutes to Midnight seemed to settle into a promising setup and story line and then book 3 started to go off the rails and by the time this book, book 4 came along - all hope of a decent new series is lost. It is just too over the top, to weird, convoluted, ... . it is too out there. The characters are cliches, unrealistic or the situations they are in and the relationships to other characters too contrived ... Lets just say I don't recommend this book, nor do I plan to read or listen to any more in this series.
