Blaine McCracken races to stop terrorists from unleashing an ancient weapon of unimaginable power at the president’s State of the Union speech
Blaine McCracken pulled off the impossible on a mission in Iran, but his work has just begun. Returning to the US, he faces another terrible threat in the form of Reverend Jeremiah Rule, whose hateful rhetoric has inflamed half the world, resulting in a series of devastating terrorist attacks. But Rule isn’t acting alone. A shadowy cabal is pulling his strings, unaware that they are creating a monster who will soon spin free of their control.
Finding himself a wanted man, McCracken must draw on skills and allies both old and new to get to the heart of a plot aimed at unleashing no less than the tenth circle of hell. A desperate chase takes him into the past, where the answers he needs are hidden amid two of history’s greatest puzzles: the lost colony of Roanoke and the Mary Celeste. As the clock ticks down to an unthinkable maelstrom, McCracken and his trusty sidekick, Johnny Wareagle, must save the United States from a war the country didn’t know it was fighting, and that it may well lose.

One to Read
Really enjoyed this book's twists and turns and the way the author intertwined everything. A difficult read during the busy holidays because I read sporadically, but when I wasn't reading I was thinking about what was happening. There were an abundance of characters, and for me, keeping track of who was whom was sometimes a bit of a challenge. There is a bit of language, some graphic violence and a sex scene. If those don't put you off, I highly recommend this one.
Hard to believe these are best sellers. The writing is florid and hurried, the grammar careless. The author knows nothing about military special forces, covert operations, or combat, and it shows. He routinely uses the word "logistical" when he means tactical. He clearly doesn't know what logistics are. An editor would help, but not enough. The plot lurches about, haphazardly and unrealistically, yet predictably. The hero ties his enemy to a railroad track to kill him, for god's sake. I give it a C-.

This was absolutely terrible, which was almost as bad as the pictures in the back of the book of Jon Land's life - seriously!
