Publisher Description

From New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Michael Savage comes a high-intensity debut thriller, the story of a smeared network journalist who uncovers a chilling terrorist plot.

Jack Hatfield is a hardened former war correspondent who rose to national prominence for his insightful, provocative commentary. But after being smeared as a bigot and extremist by a radical leftist media-watchdog group, he ultimately loses his job and finds himself working in obscurity as a freelance news producer in San Francisco.

One afternoon Hatfield is on a ride-along with the SFPD bomb squad when a seemingly routine carjacking turns deadly, after police find several pounds of military-grade explosives in the jacked car. And when the FBI urges Hatfield to stay out of it, he knows he's onto something big.

This event will open up a shadowy trail that leads Hatfield from San Francisco to Tel Aviv, London, Paris, and back again, as he works with a stunning Yemeni intelligence agent and a veteran Green Beret to expose a terrorist group known as the Hand of Allah—and a plot within the highest corridors of power that will dwarf September 11th.

Abuse of Power is a lightning-paced thriller, spanning the globe from Europe and Israel to the back alleys of San Francisco's Chinatown. Jack Hatfield must make the choice between protecting his own life and investigating a terrorist cell whose goal is nothing less than total political control—no matter what the cost.

Abuse of Power

Enjoyable, fast paced and semi-realistic. I've suggested the book to friends. A nicely done visit to the Middle East & Europe.

Abuse of Power

Way better than I expected. Had elements of 007 & 24. In my personal opinion, I could've enjoyed it as well w/out the sex & profanity, but I understand it's how the world thinks, how the world acts & talks. The plot was interesting and the action was good. I totally disagree --100%-- that when a Muslim, a Jew, & a Christian pray that they're praying to the same God. Jews & Christians, yes. Jesus was a Jew. Allah, not the same God that walked in the cool of the day w/Adam in the Garden, nor David's Shepherd, nor my savior & redeemer.

Pleasantly surprised

This is a well written and entertaining book. The plot twists kept me guessing, and were not the ones I expected. This could easily be a hit movie. Good job Savage!
