The United States has just launched the most powerful weapon in history—a missile-launching satellite called Thor’s Hammer that can strike anywhere on the planet in seconds. The world’s other major superpowers, Russia and China, are rocked by America’s development, and they scramble to respond by gaining control of the seas.

But when terrorists hijack Pakistani missiles and fire them at Indian cities, US President Joseph Gardner has only one option: use the untested Thor’s Hammer. But when something goes awry, Pakistan decides to give China naval strategic advantage by granting access to Middle Eastern ports.

To make matters worse, Somali pirates board a Chinese freighter and slaughter the crew. China responds by brutally attacking and then occupying Somalia, quickly setting up missile pads that can target US Naval ships. Now the US high command is on red alert and the country’s security is in total jeopardy.

Another flash point quickly emerges—in Earth’s orbit. When Chinese and Russian spacecraft surround an American space station, the threat is clear: negotiate and compromise, or China and Russia will cripple the US Navy with ballistic missiles. Will the world’s superpowers be plunged into a full-scale war?

With Executive Intent, the New York Times bestselling master thriller-writer Dale Brown crafts an action-packed tale of intrigue and technological weaponry that pits the world’s superpowers in a contest for Earth’s oceans and ultimate high ground—space.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Chris Hubbs | 1/18/2014

    " Ah, Dale Brown. Another cookie cutter plot, with ineffective politicians who despise the military techno-gear until it's too late. If the technology and the political scenarios weren't so interesting, I'd have given up on you by now. As it is... Three stars. "

    " This isn't a bad book, has quite a good story line, I feel the only thing that lets it down is the completely unrealistic president character. Worth a read though "
