A survival expert’s skills are put to the test when he is confronted by a team of al-Qaeda-trained terrorists hell-bent on destruction.
Fifteen miles off the coast of New Brunswick, Canada, a Soviet-era diesel submarine offloads four men before being intercepted by a U.S. Navy vessel patrolling the area. The men make up a team of al-Qaeda-trained specialists skilled in the black arts of terrorist warfare and are headed by a man who has billions of dollars in oil money with which to indulge his murderous fantasies. What they do next will determine the fates of thousands of Americans.
Rod Eliot, an aging ex-con turned survival expert, stands between them and one of the most devastating plots ever hatched by the deviated mind of a killer: to blow up the five-mile-long Mackinac Bridge and detonate enough plutonium to contaminate the area for decades. When an encounter with the bomb-toting terrorists occurs deep in the woods of the Upper Peninsula, Eliot finds himself in a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with no alternative but to go head-to-head with these murderers. Rod may be the only person who can stop them. But he’s in over his head.
Due to Eliot’s checkered past, law enforcement officials have him pegged for the crimes that unfold over the next few days. Only one, a seasoned FBI agent who is on his trail, thinks Eliot is innocent and is willing to prove it.
In The Mackinac Incident: A Thriller, Al Qaeda operatives have moved on to an unexpected but dangerous new target: the five-mile-long Mackinac Bridge, which links Michigan's Upper and Lower Peninsulas. But here in the deep woods, the terrorists are working on the home turf of ex-con survivalist Rod Eliot - simultaneously a man whom the FBI blame for the terrorists' crimes, and the only man capable of stopping them. Voice actor Jonathan Stewart brings a gritty intensity to this performance, both as he voices the horrific impulses of the Saudi terrorist Philippe Aziz, and the stalwart patriotism of Eliot. In this nerve-rattling thriller, Stewart plays Eliot with a charisma that sets him apart as the perfect anti-hero: individualistic, heroic, and self-reliant against all odds.
