In bestselling author John Gilstrap’s ticking time bomb of a thriller, freelance operative Jonathan Grave penetrates a terrorist cell to stop the detonation of total mayhem on home ground . . .
America is under fire. One by one, simultaneous terror attacks have left the country reeling. The perpetrators are former Special Forces operatives working for ISIS. Jonathan Grave and his team are called to go undercover and eliminate the traitors. No need to collect intel. No need for arrest. Wipe them out—and get out.
The assaults are rehearsals for extreme disaster. A plot codenamed Retribution. One terrorist is willing to talk—for a price. Grave’s only resort is to slip into a dark web where everything can be exposed. Where the rules of engagement do not hold. The bombs have been set and Grave is the one being hunted. Unless he can save himself first, a terrorist plot of unimaginable scope will become history’s deadliest disaster . . .
Hundreds die when snipers shoot up six high school football games in bestseller Gilstrap's propulsive 12th Jonathan Grave thriller (after 2018's Scorpion Strike). The FBI enlists Grave, the billionaire leader of private investigating firm Security Solutions, and three of his team members to go underground as fake FBI agents to find and eliminate the killers. The next attacks use bombs to strike small Midwestern towns, again causing hundreds of deaths. The mastermind behind the mayhem, Art Evers, known as Iceman to his terrorist team, calls his operation Retribution. The tension rises after Grave gets wind of the next target Capitol Harbor, a tourist development outside Washington, D.C., where children will be out Halloween night. Not everyone survives the final confrontation, but series fans can rest assured that Grave will fight again. Straightforward plotting, amped-up action, and amusing banter keep the pages turning.
