IRONSIDES' PERIL is the new Zach Colt thriller from award-winning author Michael D. Urban.
The War of 1812 is long over.
The War of 2012 has just begun.
July 4, 2012. Boston is under attack. A trail of burning ships and downed jet aircraft litters the harbor. A ruthless band of Iranian backed terrorists has hijacked U.S.S. Constitution. A former president of the United States and other dignitaries are onboard together with the ship’s crew and other hostages.
Unfortunately for the terrorists, so is Zach Colt. And he’s spoiling for a fight.
Now it’s time to take “Old Ironsides” back. Before she is destroyed and the terrorists’ final, devastating revenge is enacted on the City of Boston.
The question is …. How do you recapture an 18th-Century warship – and sacred American icon -- using 21st-Century weapons and tactics?
