Retired CIA assassin Kirk McGarvey is taking a much needed break. Then a bomb in his car explodes just as he's leaving the vehicle. He barely escapes with his life. The men who went after McGarvey are also after the President of the United States. A controversial candidate, he has just won a heated, heavily contested presidential election. Now his enemies are determined to push him out of office. These men hire a contractor to set up three terrorist assaults in the US as well as other attacks around the globe in hopes of driving him from office. These strikes are at flash points so critical they could incite all-out nuclear war. But the president's enemies have not reckoned on Kirk McGarvey. He has survived their attempt on his life, and he is determined to hunt them down and stop them at all costs. They made a mistake in going after the CIA's #1 assassin.

I have noticed over the last several months that some thriller writers have been working into their story lines our current 'upside down' political environment in the USA. David Hagberg's FLASH POINTS is the first one I have seen bring it right into the forefront of this very entertaining (and somewhat frightening) novel. The terrorists are out to destroy America as usual, but now Hagberg's hero, Kirk McGarvey (along with 'Pete,' Otto and Louise) not only has to out think and stop terrorists, he has to contend with allies and enemies working together to discredit America's President. Layer onto that combo, the fact that certain people within out own Government are working to do the same thing, and it is a complicated mess right up to the ending. Great read. It is somewhat disconcerting how Hagberg puts his finger on real world events and creates scenarios that are all too possible. In this book, though he very skillfully presents out current political situation in a way that doesn't reveal his own inclinations, but still puts the obvious inclinations of others on all sides on display. Well done, and maybe his best novel yet. I really hope he is wrong about some of this stuff, but I am not so sure he is.
