Publisher's Description

The New York Times bestselling, “heart-thumping” (Sean Hannity) espionage thriller from #1 bestselling author Oliver North offers an epic tale of America’s future in the year 2032, about the kidnapping of a prominent physicist who knows too many state secrets for the president’s liking—especially in a re-election year.

The kidnapping of Martin Cohen, an MIT physicist who is privy to sensitive scientific information, from a Houston energy conference by Islamic terrorists sparks a high stakes game of international cat and mouse.

The NRA has been outlawed; the US military has been gutted; Conservative Christians, dubbed ANARKS, have been labeled a global conspiracy and have been largely driven underground. The Caliphate is now a superpower, residing in Israel. The White House is occupied by a repressive Progressive regime, obsessed with the upcoming presidential election.

Peter Newman, security consultant and former decorated war hero, is determined to rescue Cohen. The president, fearful that her reelection will be endangered by the reemergence of terrorism, will stop at nothing to keep the kidnapping a secret. The White House condemns the kidnapping as the work of ANARKS, then has the authorities brand Newman an ANARK. Newman is thus forced to evade the law while also preparing to rescue the kidnap victim with the help of his father—also a decorated war hero—along with a patriotic US senator and a band of special forces operatives.

    This review was written for For Heroes Proved.
    This is a very exciting story and yes, there are acronyms etc. but it does not draw away from the story. If you like that kind of thing, the acronyms will add authenticity. I recommend this book.

    I have read and loved Oliver North's previous books and admired his knowledge and ability to hold my interest. This book, however, is a bit over the top. There are just too many military acronyms and abbreviations used constantly. A glossary is included, but it is very tedious to have to look up definitions far too often. It hinders the progress and continuity of the story and actually becomes a chore.
