No one knows who may be the next threat in this “action-packed” thriller by the New York Times-bestselling author of National Security (Publishers Weekly).
From coast to coast, our nation is witnessing a new wave of terror. Suicide bombers incite blind panic and paralyzing fear. A flight attendant tries to crash an airliner. A police officer opens fire on fans in a stadium. And at CIA headquarters, a Deputy Director goes on a murderous rampage. The perpetrators appear to be American—but they are covert agents in a vast network of terror, selected and trained for one purpose only: the complete annihilation of America.
Special Agent Jericho Quinn has seen the warning signs. As a classified “instrument” of the CIA reporting directly to the president, Quinn knows that these random acts of violence pose a clear and present danger. But Quinn may not be able to stop it. The search for terrorists has escalated into an all-out witch hunt. And somehow, Quinn's name is on the list…
“Quinn is most definitely one of the best characters in the thriller realm.”—Suspense Magazine
Cameron's action-packed, over-the-top second thriller featuring Jericho Quinn (after 2011's National Security) finds Quinn ostensibly working for the Office of Special Investigations, USAF. In fact, as "an other government agent" (or OGA), he acts at the behest of the president as "a protector, a blunt instrument a hammer" when the more traditional security agencies can't get the job done. Quinn and a variety of other agents go up against a plethora of villains, including a renegade congressman, a Turkoman assassin, a Pakistani mastermind, and assorted terrorists, homegrown and foreign. Besides wreaking general havoc across America, the evildoers are planning a massive strike against political bigwigs attending the wedding of the U.S. vice president's daughter. Most of the characters are off-the-shelf, but if your tastes run to females and children in peril, torture, bloodbaths, explosions, treachery and mayhem on a grand scale, this one is for you.
