Summary:

A globe-spanning, heart-pounding epic thriller of good vs. evil, political intrigue, and what it means to be a patriot-from New York Times bestselling author Oliver North.

The year is 2032. The NRA has been outlawed; the U.S. 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. Then, the kidnapping of an MIT physicist who is privy to sensitive scientific information from a Houston energy conference by Islamic terrorists sets in motion a high-stakes international game of cat and mouse.

Peter Newman, security consultant and former decorated war hero, is determined to rescue the scientist. 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, and has the authorities label Newman an ANARK. Newman is forced to evade the law while also preparing a daring rescue with the help of his war hero father, a patriotic U.S. senator, and a band of special forces operatives.

Fast-paced, gripping, and filled with authentic detail, North has crafted an edge-of-your-seat tale-and offers an ominous look into what can happen in an election year.

    Overall enjoyable.The narration was very much lacking of emotion and was robotic in nature at times. The story line is exciting but very much pushes an agenda that while, is important and virtuous to the author, after some time it actually overshadows the book and becomes over-the-top and distracting.
