Summary
"The unthinkable has happened: ISIS, covertly assisted by Pakistan's intelligence services, has acquired nuclear weapons and the ability to deliver them anywhere in the world. They begin with an attack at Bagram Airfield, America's largest military base in Afghanistan. A second weapon is detonated in Battery Park in New York City. The blast levels a square mile of Manhattan, including the Financial District. Hundreds of thousands perish. The American economy is in chaos. Banks close their doors. The U.S. supply chain is disrupted. Riots and looting break out while enemies in the Middle East burn U.S. flags in celebration. The stakes skyrocket when Islamabad CIA Station Chief Bill Gorman unearths evidence of a third bomb headed our way. Across two continents the chase is on to find the runaway terrorists led by the ruthless and capable Salma Bahmani, star agent of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, the dread ISI. She will stop at nothing to deliver what could be the final nail in America's coffin"--

Review
/* Starred Review */ This unrelenting thriller from Fox News commentator Hunt and Piniero (The Fall), their first collaboration, offers constant action, sympathetic heroes, believable evildoers, and absolute authenticity on every page. Shortly after ISIS sets off an atomic device at Bagram Airfield, the largest U.S. military base in Afghanistan, terrorists drive a massive oil tanker into the tip of Manhattan and detonate a second nuclear device. The American president, Laura Vaccaro, sets up a secret action team to hunt down the perpetrators. The stakes escalate when CIA officer Bill Gorman informs Vaccaro that there’s another bomb headed toward the U.S. A number of exciting subplots raise the suspense. What’s particularly refreshing is the authors’ willingness to give readers a vivid picture of brave men and women attempting to stop destruction, without shying away from relating what happens when they fail. Agent: Matthew Bialer, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Mar.)
