The secret terrorist organization that came within a heartbeat of installing its agent as President of the United States in Executive Actions is back with a new—and deadlier—plot to destabilize the U.S. government. It all begins with what appears to be a simple mugging and murder of a female White House staffer. Secret Service agent Scott Roarke discovers the truth: that the murder was committed by his secret nemesis, the mysterious assassin who had managed to always stay one step ahead of him during the presidential campaign. This time Roarke has found clues about the assassin’s past that give him the tools he needs to hunt the hunter, but the clues can only go so far. Roarke needs all his skill, and a huge amount of luck as well, if he’s going to catch his quarry.

My Review:
One word describes this second political thriller from talented author, Gary Grossman:Mind-blowing (okay, so technically two, but you get the picture….). Absolutely mind-blowing. Grossman has taken his knowledge and skills and put them, once again, into a highly gripping, edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding read. From start to finish the action, the threats, all of it become realistic and pulls you in.

Once again, the reader is swept away and placed into the heart of a terrorist’s plot to destroy the White House, staff, President and all. Agent Scott Roarke is back and better than ever in his hunt for the terrorist, after a woman is murdered. It’s once again a race against time to save the President, and the country, before this crazed terrorist cell can accomplish their deadly aim.

Agent Roarke dives into the fast-paced hunt for clues, trying to turn the tables on the person responsible for the cell and killings. Each new clue brings more heart-pounding suspense, intriguing twists and turns. But, the question is, will Roarke be able to stay ahead of this terroristic treason plot or will more lives be lost and endangered?

I definitely recommend this with high 5 Book ratings. It’s fast-paced, blood-pumping, heart-pounding suspense at it’s finest. When you reach the end, you’re jaw will be on the floor and you’ll be wondering when the next installment will be released, as you’ll want more of this addictive series. Amazing job, Mr. Grossman. Bring on the next!

    Good review! I don’t know how I missed finding out about both of Mr. Grossman’s books but I’ve now added them to my buy list. I love a great thriller/suspense book and these two sound great plus I’m a sucker for the name Roarke. Thanks for sharing about this book.
