The world's master terrorist, known only as the Falcon, has infiltrated Washington's highest corridors of power, threatening the very existence of our democracy in this realistic tale of modern-day treason.
Major Brooke Grant has been waging war against terrorism since her parents were murdered during 9/11, keenly aware that her enemy transcends borders. But a coordinated attack on the president at the funeral of a Washington power broker leads her to a terrifying revelation: The enemy is closer than she'd ever imagined and is hiding in plain sight. The Falcon has gained a weapon no terrorist has ever wielded before: an American-born traitor burrowed inside the US government itself.
Treason is a story of a nation fighting for its life not only against outside threats but also against an internal threat - a fanatical jihadist who uses liberty as a shield while trying to destroy the civilization created in its image. Major Grant's deadly chess match with the Falcon turns personal when he issues a fatwa against her and those she loves. Can she unmask the traitor and stop the Falcon's most skilled assassin, sent to kill her, before he strikes? Or will she fall victim to betrayal by a false friend in this gripping tale of treachery, courage, and ultimately patriotism, where good battles evil?
Only Newt Gingrich, who brings decades of experience in national security and politics to bear in his collaboration with journalist Pete Earley, can spin such a vivid mix of reality and fiction, daring listeners to guess where the line between the two is crossed.

This is the second book in the Brooke Grant series. I purchased book three first and backtracked to book one. Each can be listened to as a stand alone and will make perfect sense. I would suggest listening to these in order for continuity of relationships and the progression of the Falcon's plot against the US and his personal vendetta against Grant.
This book is very personal for Brooke Grant. The terrorist known as the Falcon has issued a fatwa (order to kill) against everyone Grant loves and then her. First there is an attempt on her uncle, leaving him in critical condition with a rifle shot to his jaw. Then Jennifer (the young girl she had guardianship of) is kidnapped along with the daughter of a Muslim congressman.
Meanwhile someone with a high level position in Washington has been helping the Falcon. The Falcon would like to get a nuclear weapon into the US and he thinks he's found a way and a place to obtain it.
This book is excellent. The storyline is believable and the pace is fast and nonstop. The characters are lively and the protagonist intense and dogged in her hunt for both Jennifer and the terrorists both here and abroad.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
