Hunter ( The Spanish Gambit ) has written a smoothly believable race-against-time thriller with frightening plausibility. Unidentified military terrorists kidnap welder Jack Hummel from his Maryland home and direct him to cut through a block of titanium to reach a launch key in the South Mountain MX missile site. The president decides to send in the crack Delta assault team, but the man best suited to command them is Col. Dick Puller, who was discredited and disgraced in Iran in 1979. Puller, in turn, must work with the only man who knows the missile silo, its designer, Prof. Peter Thiokol. The leader of "Aggressor-One" is discovered to be Russian Military Intelligence chief Arkady Pashin: he is charismatic, reactionary and messianically determined to launch the single MX that will trigger a massive Soviet reply.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Revjimmyo | 10/16/2011

    " Great plot, well executed, and initially complicated. As the story unfolds, the outcome becomes generally predictable, but with many unexpected twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nitin | 6/22/2011

    " A departure from Hunter's usual oeuvre of sniper-lore, this is a book with a fairly convincing Doomsday scenario and some epic Special Forces assault craft. Worth a read for Hunter fans. "
