The War on Terror . . . with a little more firepower
Violence and tensions along the U.S.-Mexican border have never been higher, sparked by battles between rival drug lords and an increased flow of illegal migrants. To combat the threat, the United States has executed Operation Rampart: a controversial test base in southern California run by Major Jason Richter and TALON, his high-tech special operations unit.
Their success is threatened by a drug kingpin and migrant smuggler named Ernesto Fuerza. In the guise of Mexican nationalist "Commander Veracruz," he causes a storm of controversy on both sides of the border, calling for a revolution to take back the northernmost "Mexican states" -- the Southwest United States. His real intention is to make it easier to import illegal drugs across the border. Soon Richter and his force are reassigned to the FBI to take on a deadly mission that will bring him face-to-face with Fuerza and set off a wave of bloodshed that threatens to become an all-out guerrilla war. Lurking behind Fuerza is Richters nemesis, former Soviet nuclear forces commander turned terror mastermind Yegor Zakharov, who is set on revenge to the very end.
In Edge of Battle, bestselling author Dale Brown stays a step ahead of world events. Dont miss this sensational ride!
"Veteran audio, TV and film actor McShane brings Brown's latest thriller to life with understated skill a much-needed element in this churning engine of hard-to-swallow political and military theorizing. Listening to McShane is like sitting in a bar and sharing war stories with a friend; his raspy, deceptively ordinary voice could well belong to one of the U.S. Border Patrol agents who are killed by a Russian terrorist group in the hot zone between America and Mexico, or a member of Task Force TALON the U.S. paramilitary unit trying to wipe out the terrorists whose leader has linked up with a seriously nasty 'coyote' a vicious smuggler of drugs as well as people. What Brown does best are the sort of nonstop action scenes his fans have come to expect and McShane knows just how to bring those moments to vivid audio life without going over the top. Simultaneous release with the Morrow hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 27). (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
The "best military adventure writer in the country today" (Clive Cussler) takes it to the terrorists with high-tech firepower in this electrifying new military thriller. Unabridged. 9 CDs.
