Publisher's Summary

Jake Grafton races against time to extinguish a harrowing terrorist plot in Washington, D.C., and prevent all-out catastrophe from enveloping the nation.
When the psychotic Colombian drug lord Chano Aldana is extradited to the United States for trial, he brings his army of vicious mercenaries with him. And as Aldana’s hit men target the President of the United States, the capital is plunged into chaos that only veteran fighter pilot Jake Grafton can stop. With the help of an investigative journalist and an undercover agent, Grafton must find the deadly assassins before they can strike again. But time is running out, and the future of the country hangs in the balance.

Narco Terror?

What if narco terrorists with lots of money hired mahem and anarchy in the US? Applied the same strong arm tactics to the USA as to Columbia or Venezuela? That's the thesis of this book and Jake Grafton plays a small but crucial role. I was surprised that the US leadership did not apply interdiction in Columbia to the story; it would have improved some. Instead, the author stayed with tactical roles, even making the CJCS a tactical commander. I liked the book and am looking forward to the next in the Grafton series.

Geeeez. What a mess.

Everyone loves thoae multiple and separate character pathways that converge ....peak...and follow through. The book does that for about 8 chapters too long and with Character names that are so close in sound .....it is almost impossible to follow.

Multiple starts and finally I just crept painfully along u til Chapter 12 and the story started. .....Geeez I never thought I would ever see Jake Grafton enter the story as a main character.

Stephen Coonts failed me for the first time.

Ugg. Don't buy thia book unless you has 30 hours to spend on a 17 hours book.
