Welcome to Battlefield America.

When the stock markets crash and the US economy falls into a crippling recession, everything changes for newly elected president Kenneth Phoenix. With reductions in education and transportation, an incapacitated National Guard, and the loss of public safety budgets, entire communities of armed citizens band together for survival and mutual protection. Against this dismal backdrop, a group calling themselves the Knights of the True Republic ambushes a SWAT team and steals radioactive materials—and the battle against the government is taken to a deadlier level.

In this time of crisis, the Nevada Wing of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP)—led by retired Air Force Lieutenant-General Patrick McLanahan, his son, Bradley, and other volunteers—rises to the task of protecting their fellow countrymen. But when the homegrown terrorists detonate a dirty bomb in Reno and Bradley is caught in a perilous double-cross, Patrick McLanahan will have to fight to discover where his friends’ true loyalties lie.

    " Another servicable Dale Brown thriller. As a completist, I have read all of his books. Some are great. All are generally pretty readable but I havent read any recently that really blew my socks off. But I will read the next one anyway.... "

    " I'm a fan of both Dale Brown and the "techno-thriller" genre. This latest book from Dale Brown continues to follow the life and career of Patrick MacLanahan and his comrades. I found the book to be very standard fare. Wasn't a lot of mystery involved nor suspense. The plot of the book was at times a slow plod through flight check procedures, domestic policy explanations and detailed information about the Civil Air Patrol. Interesting reading, but exceptionally dry at times. The action in the book came in spurts without any clear "mother of all battles" often found in the genre. There were a few eyebrow raising moments, but nothing fantastic. There was also a series of strange "mini-climaxes"; I can't go into detail without spoiling the book. Suffice it to say, towards the end of the book there were several moments where I turned the page, expecting to see the Epilogue only to find yet another loose end to knot off. Little disconcerting. "

    " General Patrick McLanahan and his son, Brad, are Civil Air Patrol volunteers who meet up with Russian assasins and home-grown terrorists. Is this what we have to look forward to in America? "
