Terrorism. The mention of the word elicits memories of the 20th century. The terrorist bombing of the Olympics, the bombing of the American Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon, the list goes on and on. Until recently, terrorism was restricted to foreign soils. Starting with the bombing of Pan-Am flight 103 and ending with the bombings of the World Trade Center and the Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, terrorism has now come to the United States. In the year 2020, the city of Los Angeles is targeted by a terrorist bearing the name Botan. For years, Botan’s people have infiltrated local, state and federal governments. Botan had his chemical plants make ammonium nitrate, a Class ‘A’ explosive. Add that to the fact that Botan had purchased abandoned mines in the California area that crosses the San Andreas Fault line. Botan threatens the western United States with a threat letter stating that if his demands are not met, catastrophic consequences will result. Let Girad Clacy take you on an action-packed excursion into law enforcement officers’ worst nightmare combating a terrorist on their own doorsteps.
