Enjoyable read! Paul Levine shows he is a great writer,no matter what the genre is. This book is a complete departure from his humorous Lassiter and Solomon vs Lord series,but keeps you on the edge of your from start to finish. If you like a good thriller,this is a book that you should read

"Awesome and Thrilling"

This is another awesome, extremely well written novel by popular author Paul Levine. His novels will really grab you and it's hard to close the book, even at 1:00 a.m. In this story, a home-grown terrorist group takes over an Air Force missile silo, determined to launch the missile to bring an apocalyptic end to our world. There are only two people who can prevent this potential massive destruction: an obnoxious sergeant who fails to follow orders, and a female psychologis

A great suspense and military along with apocalyptic story

A departure from the lawyer/shyster theme of Levine's other books I have read. A insane preacher man and his cult attempt to launch a nuke on to Jerusalem to bring on the apocalypse. An unlikely hero emerged to attempt to save the day. You'll have to read the book to find if he does or does not save the holiest locations of three major world religions.
There are several subplots of political and military power struggles. This along with me

Home-grown, fundamentalist driven terrorists take over a nuclear facility and an unlikely hero tries to save the day. This military/action adventure is quite different from Mr. Levine's legal thrillers. As much as I enjoy two of his other series, Jake Lassiter and Solomon and Lord, this book was just too over the top and silly for me. This book was offered as a kindle freebie and though it wasn't for me, I thank the author for his generosity.

A page turner

I stayed up an extra hour to finish. I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep without knowing how things ended.
