Peter Kirsanow delivers a gripping, high-stakes thriller in which special operator Mike Garin faces off against a lethal Russian assassin--and a devious plot to wreak chaos in America.
Within mere weeks of thwarting a cataclysmic electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack against the United States, Michael Garin, former leader of the elite Omega special operations unit, discovers that Russia has triggered an ingenious and catastrophic backup plan. Garin's efforts to warn the administration of the new attack, however, fall on deaf ears. No one believes the Russians would initiate another strike of such magnitude so soon.
Without government support, Garin turns to three people for help: Congo Knox, a former Delta Force sniper; Dan Dwyer, the head of a sprawling military contracting firm; and Olivia Perry, an aide to the national security advisor. Yet Garin and his ad hoc team are checked at every turn by the formidable Russian assassin, Taras Bor, who is directed by an individual seemingly able to manipulate the highest reaches of the US government.
As evidence mounts that the Russian plot has been set in motion and that Bor is pivotal to its success, it's up to Garin and his team to thwart an attack that will cause the death of millions and establish a new world order.
In Kirsanow's 2017 debut, Target Omega, Mike Garin, the head of Omega team, which is "comprised of eight tier-one special operators trained to interdict and destroy rogue WMD programs," earned the nation's gratitude for preventing an electromagnetic pulse attack against the U.S. by Iran. In this exciting sequel, Garin must again contend with Russian assassin Taras Bor, who's every bit Garin's equal but with a much more pronounced mean streak. Bor has trained his own squad of terrorists, who plan to create an array of mayhem-generating diversions around Washington, D.C., to distract America's leaders long enough for the Russians to retake Eastern Europe and part of the Middle East. Readers comfortable with the genre's standard conventions hyperpatriotism, acts of inhuman endurance, a cast of sidekicks to fill all the necessary roles will be satisfied with the usual plot mechanics. While Garin is cast from an off-the-shelf mold, Kirsanow uses all the other characters adroitly and rarely misses an opportunity to maximize suspense.
