While millions of Americans go about their daily lives, halfway around the world an al-Qaeda cell hatches a deadly new terror plot. It's unthinkable in its devastation. It's brilliantly easy in its execution. And it's capable of bypassing all the security measures the United States implemented in the decade since 9/11.
First, a Delta flight crashes into Lake Michigan. Eight hours later, a United aircraft comes down over western Iowa. For the second time since flying was invented in 1903, the US airline industry is forced to a standstill.
The message is clear. Stop flying--ruin the economy. Keep flying--more people will die.
Now Homeland Security Director of Counter-Intelligence Jack Riley must lead an FBI task force in a frantic search to discover and eliminate the plot before more people are killed or the economy crashes permanently. The clock is ticking…..
My thoughts: I feel like the author did a wonderful job moving this story along and bringing it to a terrifying climax! I did think that the story could of used a list of characters at the beginning, since the reader is introduced to a lot of different players within the first few chapters. That said, I think the fact that he had so many different people in the story made it all the more believable! The story is sound and interesting, bringing the reader through a scenario of what could happen. It is an interesting tale and one that will get the reader thinking!
I received this book from Cedar Fort in exchange for my honest review.
