August 2011. Terrorist operative Amer Al Zaroor masterminds and executes the theft of a Pakistani military weapon: a two-hundred-pound nuclear warhead, capable of causing destruction on an unprecedented scale. A chilling transmission is then broadcast to the world, in which Osama Bin Laden pledges to attack a major US city on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Intelligence indicates that the bomb has been smuggled out of Pakistan and is en route to the US, with Washington or New York the suspected target. However, this is a clever decoy set by Al Zaroor. While the CIA is focussed on thwarting a domestic attack, the weapon moves nearer to its true target, Tel Aviv, which Bin Laden plans to wipe off the map. Back in Washington, agent Brooke Chandler, a once-prodigious field operative, senses this deception. Chandler, who has his own score to settle with Al Qaeda, thinks he knows just how the bomb is being moved, and has an idea how to find it. Chandler must convince his superiors of his conviction, and then find and disable the bomb before it is too late. If he fails, Al Zaroor's plan will succeed, and the Middle East as we know it will be relegated to the annals of history.

Reviews

Patterson (In the Name of Honor) brings his usual encyclopedic research to this exploration of what is quickly becoming a tiresome thriller subgenre, the Arab terrorist with a nuclear bomb. History lectures and political lessons tend to slow what is generally an interesting if only mildly suspenseful account of a terrorist plot involving bin Laden himself from the early planning stages to the very gates of nuclear disaster. CIA agent Brooke Chandler and his retired agency mentor, Carter Grey, believe that the target of the attack, which they know is scheduled for September 11, 2011, will be Tel Aviv rather than an American city. This unpopular opinion forces the two men almost singlehandedly to hunt down a deadly terrorist, Amer Al Zaroor, to foil the bomb plot. Patterson's work is always serious, detailed, and meticulous, which makes this a scary how-to manual for terrorists, but something less for readers looking for straight-out action and thrills.
