Publisher's Summary

"GRIPPING AND GRITTY." - Richard North Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author
A school under siege. A shooter in the classroom. An all too common American nightmare unleashed again. But this time, former Delta Captain Jake Mahegan happens to be on the schoolgrounds checking in on the daughter of a colleague. Instead he's staring down a suicidal gunman rigged to blow. During the standoff another attack begins outside the school. The gunman goes down, Mahegan is knocked unconscious, and a twelve-year-old autistic girl is kidnapped. Mahegan knows his mission before the smoke clears, but where it takes him is unimaginable - deep into a widespread conspiracy that threatens the nation's very core. Treason in the highest halls of government. And only one man is prepared to stop it - or die trying...
"An explosive, seat-of-your-pants thriller!" - W.E.B. Griffin and W.E. Butterworth IV on Sudden Threat
"Mahegan stands out from the crowd of usual thriller heroes." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Topical, frightening, possible, and riveting." - James Rollins on Sudden Threat
"This one truly kicks butt. Crackling with action and tension, it'll hold you captive from the first page until the last." - Steve Berry, New York Times and #1 international bestselling author

Great Addition To The Series

Jake Mahegan is an amazing character, robust yet nuanced...a heroic figure in a chaotic and complex world. In the third installment of this series, General Tata continues a masterful development of a character within a rich and action-packed scenario. Some authors in the genre become enamored of lengthy and detailed descriptions of hardware, sometimes at the expense of character and plot development. Not so with A.J. Tata. With each volume we learn more of what drives Jake Mahegan and how his special skills are employed to counter very realistic threats. I cannot wait for the next chapter in the Jake Mahegan story.

Jonathan Davis was outstanding with the delivery of the story
