Description

On a quiet park bench in Manhattan—just miles from the ruins of the World Trade Center—a spymaster delivers a chilling secret message to Jake Grafton: A rogue Russian general has sold four nuclear warheads to a radical Islamic terrorist group, the Sword of Islam. The group intends to detonate them in America in the ultimate terror strike, the apocalypse that will trigger a holy war between Western civilization and the Muslim world. After passing the message on to his peers, Grafton is charged by the president with assembling a secret team to find the warheads before America's population centers are consumed by a nuclear holocaust.

As he hunts for terrorists, Grafton soon finds himself up to his neck in power politics, techno-billionaires, money-grubbing traitors, anarchists, and spies. He also discovers that the terrorists don't all come from the Middle East. They come from places close to home. They masquerade as patriots. Some may even have the president's ear.

With the survival of Western civilization at stake, Grafton pulls out all the stops. Calling on the assistance of the indomitable Toad Tarkington, and CIA burglar Tommy Carmellini, he raids the prisons to assemble his team while the clock ticks toward Armageddon.

  • (5/5)
    Trust no one! I love this type of book.
  • (4/5)
    Last of the Jake Grafton series, Jake, Toad and Carmelini save the US from a nuclear terrorist or two. Rife with bureaucratic one-upsmanship that almost kills the deal, the author winds through it and everyone wins. Where will Jake Grafton be when this actually happens to the USA?
  • (4/5)
    Terrorists smuggle four nuclear warheads into the U.S. and POTUS tasks Adm. Jake Grafton with finding them, no matter who has to die or whose rights are trampled. Grafton assembles the usual posse and mayhem ensues.Good characters and interesting plot-twists The (tiresome) political lectures justifying a surveillance-state haven't aged well, post-Snowden, but those are an inescapable component of this genre, like quick-draws in Westerns.Why did Tommy want that 30-30 so badly -- does anyone know?
