The New York Times
bestselling, “heart-thumping” (Sean Hannity) espionage thriller from #1
bestselling author Oliver North offers an epic tale of America’s future in the year 2032, about the kidnapping of a prominent physicist who knows too many state secrets for the president’s liking—especially in a re-election year.
The kidnapping of Martin Cohen, an MIT physicist who is privy to sensitive scientific information, from a Houston energy conference by Islamic terrorists sparks a high stakes game of international cat and mouse.
The NRA has been outlawed; the US military has been gutted; Conservative Christians, dubbed ANARKS, have been labeled a global conspiracy and have been largely driven underground. The Caliphate is now a superpower, residing in Israel. The White House is occupied by a repressive Progressive regime, obsessed with the upcoming presidential election.
Peter Newman, security consultant and former decorated war hero, is determined to rescue Cohen. The president, fearful that her reelection will be endangered by the reemergence of terrorism, will stop at nothing to keep the kidnapping a secret. The White House condemns the kidnapping as the work of ANARKS, then has the authorities brand Newman an ANARK. Newman is thus forced to evade the law while also preparing to rescue the kidnap victim with the help of his father—also a decorated war hero—along with a patriotic US senator and a band of special forces operatives.
The New York Times bestselling explosive novel of global intrigue, military action, and cutting-edge suspense from national security expert, master novelist, and real-life war hero.
It's the year 2032, and the president claims America is now safe from terror. We're told Iranian nuclear weapons no longer menace our citizens. Leaders in Washington insist that United Nations treaties and innovative technologies can protect us and assure peace in our time. To save money, "Progressives," holding power in our capital, have cut the US Armed Forces to the bone. But when the city of Houston is targeted by suicide bombers--and Dr. Martin Cohen, America's foremost physicist, is kidnapped--the brilliantly executed attack sends shock waves around the globe. The price of fuel skyrockets. With the US economy on the brink of catastrophe, leaders in Washington look for a scapegoat--instead of our missing scientist.
It’s the year 2032: The president proclaims America is safe from terror. Iranian nuclear weapons no longer menace us. With United Nations treaties and innovative technologies assuring our protection, the capital’s Progressive leaders have cut the U.S. Armed Forces to the bone.
Then, the unthinkable: Houston is the target of a brilliantly executed suicide bombing—and Dr. Martin Cohen, America’s foremost physicist, is kidnapped.
