Description

It is America's worst nightmare: A nuclear bomb destroys a major city. Thousands of Americans are dead and many more will die from radiation poisoning. Threats promising more attacks flood the news. Panic has broken out in several major cities.

How could American intelligence have failed to detect a nuclear device? Who is responsible for the blast? Sean Falcone, national security advisor, is tasked with identifying and tracking down the attackers. Powerful forces within the capitol point the finger at Iran. But appearances are always deceiving, and never more so than when millions of innocent people may die for a crime they did not commit. With the potential to incite the entire Muslim world against America and bring the world to the brink of Armageddon, Falcone discovers an astonishing secret hidden deep within the upper echelons of Washington's elite...but why should the President--or the American people--believe him?

Drawing on years of international affairs and defense planning experience, William S. Cohen, the former secretary of defense under Bill Clinton, brings readers a sweeping political thriller to rival Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and David Baldacci.

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.
