Publisher's Summary

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 U.S. C-130 cargo plane in the tangled jungle, he finds a dead U.S. Special Forces paratrooper who is not supposed to be there. Matt is quickly 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 Washington, D.C., defense politicos, who call themselves the Rolling Stones, Matt and his Army captain brother Zach Garrett establish their bona fides as true patriots on the cutting edge of freedom. 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.

    Story
    "Lots of action with a very weak plot"

    Sudden Threat, released in 2009, was the first novel by A. J. Tata whose books began being released in audio format this year. Author US General (retired) Tony Tata, a West Point graduate, retired from the US Army in 2009 with the rank of one-star (brigadier) general. His eighth novel will be released next month.

    I do not understand the 4.5 star average rating at Audible. The 4.0 average rating at Amazon makes more sense, but is still an unjustified gift. My plan is to purchase Foreign and Domestic by this author. It is the first novel, released in 2015, in the Jake Mahegan series.

    Among the many mistakes the author makes with this novel is having far too many characters. My 2 star rating of Sudden Threat is being very kind. I DO NOT recommend this novel!
