Description

After years without a terrorist attack on American soil, one group has picked the 4th of July weekend to pull out all the stops. In a perfectly executed attack, all of the bridges and tunnels leading into and out of Manhattan are destroyed just as thousands of commuters begin their holiday exodus. With domestic efforts focused on search and rescue, a deadly team of highly trained foreign soldiers methodically makes its way through the city with the singular objective of locating one of their own -- a man so powerful that America will do anything to keep him hidden.

Scot Harvath is now the country's only hope. Fighting his way through the burning streets of Manhattan, he must mount his own operation to locate a man the United States government refuses to admit even exists.

        May 1, 2006
        More terrorist-whupping kicks off Thor's latest addition to his series (Blowback, etc.) featuring Scot Harvath, covert counter terrorism operative for the Department of Homeland Security. Harvath abducts an Algerian bomb-maker out of Montreal while another U.S. team snatches Mohammed bin Mohammed (a.k.a M&M), head of al-Qaeda's weapons of mass destruction committee, from Somalia and stashes him in a secret facility in New York City. But Harvath's premonition that the next terrorist attack would make "9/11 look like choir practice" comes true when Al-Qaeda operative Abdul Ali, backed by a three-foot-tall freelance intelligence agent known as "the Troll," goes to New York to rescue M&M. As part of the al-Qaeda rescue attempt, the Big Apple comes under furious attack. The U.S. president's daughter is seriously injured and thousands are slain as Harvath and his team chase a ruthless enemy through the devastated streets and subways. Bullets fly, bombs explode and people die. Back in Washington, to the disgust of the president, cowardly bureaucrats mewl and whine. Despite stock characters and just-get-the-job-done writing, hawkish readers may relish the non-stop action, lethal weapons, flag waving platitudes and outrageous American-on-terrorist torture. Others may have no stomach for Thor's vision of a U.S. that has dispensed with rule of law to deal with "bad guys...always probing for another soft spot they could exploit."
