Publisher's Summary

A black ops program operates from deep within the Pentagon. The objective: to stop devastating terrorist acts. The means: secretly enabling charismatic Tristan Nazir to emerge as the most powerful leader in the Middle East. But Nazir twists the plan to his own violent ends: the creation of ISIS.

Elite operative Dewey Andreas is sent to Syria to find out more about the enemy. After his cover is blown, Dewey learns that ISIS munitions were indeed provided by rogue elements within the US government. This information arrives in time for the US to cut off a final arms shipment before it reaches terrorist hands. In retaliation Nazir holds the West hostage, launching an audacious strike at the very heart of New York City....

Disturbingly graphic with the colour of truth.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Certainly. The story is something to learn from in a world tormented by irrational religions and politicians

What was one of the most memorable moments of First Strike?

Impossible to say. it was a whole story without parts. Every chapter was essential to every other.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The whole book

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Undoubtedly...if you had the time, though it would have been a disturbing experience.

Any additional comments?

The story was made for Jeff Harding. Jeff Harding is THE storyteller, gifted with a range of expressions making any story a memorable experience. Few are his equal.

4.5* Rounded up

the narration was perfect for the story, but the story, although well told didn't have the same panache and vigour other authors manage to create.
