Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

His first novel, ABUSE OF POWER, was a smashing success. Now “The Savage Nation” radio

host is back with another pulse-pounding thriller that will keep readers hooked until the very

last page…

A Chinook helicopter carrying a squad of Navy SEALs suddenly plummets to earth in Afghanistan. A car driven by FBI agents tailing a suspicious vehicle is mysteriously rendered immobile in San Francisco. The body of a Chinese agent is found floating miles from the Golden Gate Bridge after being fed to sharks…

A TIME FOR WAR

The United States is under secret attack, and only Jack Hatfield, a popular television host hounded from his position by left-wing forces in the media for speaking the truth, suspects the danger of this lethal conspiracy. With the help of Dover Griffith, an idealistic young female staffer at the Office of Naval Intelligence, Hatfield pursues a trail leading to a billionaire American electronics entrepreneur who has sold out his own country with the help of officials at the highest level of the American government. As enemy operatives plan a two-pronged attack that will disarm the American military and release a deadly toxin killing hundreds of thousands of civilians, its up to Hatfield and Dover race to locate this new Ground Zero—and save their country from the greatest threat its ever faced. And time is running out...

“Power fiction, tinged with terrorism and intrigue, with an old-school, rough-and-tumble journalist as its hero.” —Washington Times

Review:

"Disgraced, conservative talk show host Jack Hatfield, the hero of conservative talk show host Savage's debut thriller, Abuse of Power (2011), battles a Chinese diplomat/spy in this mildly diverting follow-up. Stationed in San Francisco, Jing Jintao is on a personal mission to wreak havoc on the U.S. using a portable EMP — electromagnetic pulse device — that can disable planes, helicopters, cars, and pretty much everything else that uses computers and electricity. Lending Jack a hand are aging 'unrepentant leftist hippie' Abe Cohen and ex-Special Forces warrior Doc Matson, with whom Jack shares 'a love of wine and a distaste for doctrinaire leftists.' Jintao is also plotting to release a bioweapon in San Francisco. Besides dealing with both of these threats, Jack must bring down billionaire industrialist Richard Hawke, whose company invented the EMP device and sold it to the Chinese. Readers who approve of Savage's conservative views will be pleased; those who don't will probably be annoyed." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
