Publisher's Summary

Acid Test takes off like a rocket in the first chapter and never slows down, speeding listeners around the globe for an electrifying adventure. The premise is chilling: What if the world was suddenly rocked by widespread murder, political chaos, and the peril of nuclear attack? The ruthless Batu Khan has forged an empire across Mongolia and central Asia. He has developed a frightening arsenal of weaponry and uses mind-altering drugs to give his minions superhuman strength. When Khan invades the Ukraine, the president of the United States issues an ultimatum: get out or else. But the president harbors a dark and deadly secret that may put countless lives at risk. Ross LaManna is a Hollywood screenwriter whose credits include Rush Hour. He fills this thriller with high-tech terror and non-stop action reminiscent of a Tom Clancy or Stephen Coonts novel. George Guidall's gripping narration captures each moment of the mounting suspense and danger.

Cinematic Thriller!

This book was a genuinely wild ride. The action was fast paced and constant, but the main characters were interesting and appealing. The reason the book seemed cinematic was that the author had been a reasonably successful screenwriter for 10 years as of last summer. This is his first successful novel. I hope he produces more books involving the same characters, as he suggested he might in an interview appended to the end of this recorded edition. Strongly recommended for people who enjoy action thrillers about the near future and possible security threats to the United States.

the premise was a bit far fetched, there seems to be a deluge of books centering on some sort of central asian federation or alliance threatening europe, or china or the US., not gonna happen , this one was a ganghis kahn follower, the other was an alexander the great follower, the over all reading was ok but not great
