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.

SEBoiko Complains that Lt.Col. Oliver North went "a bit over the top in the God and Country area". How could one expect any less?

Shouldn't a "full record" contain the copyright and/or the publication date of the book? The bibliographies I wrote (and read) way back in the "good old days" had to contain that info. . . .

Interesting but improbable story line. A little bit over the top in the "God and Country" area.

The National Rifle Association, until the organization was banned as an "illegal extremist entity" for advocating that American citizens violate the United Nations Treaties on Small Arms and Arms Trade by refusing to register privately owned firearms.
