A Thriller with Unmatched Suspense!

Max Kenworth is a retired US Army Delta Force officer and nuclear weapons expert. Bart Madison is an ex-Special Forces officer who crossed paths with Max one too many times, and soon found himself booted out of the army. Max never believed he would come face to face with Bart again....Until now.

ISIS has come up with a plan to strike terror and death in the heart of America. They have money and the means to recruit disgruntled Americans to carry out their plan, and Bart Madison is their man. With help from a FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia) commander and his men, Bart attacks a secret NASA base in Panama where in fact four SADMs (Special Atomic Demolition Munitions) have been stored and guarded by the US Army. After acquiring the nukes, Bart hands over two to one group of terrorists who plan to take them to the Middle East. As for the other two nukes, Bart has come up with a plan to deliver and detonate them at key points in the United States that will change the course of the nation and world forever.

Max is approached by Special Operations Command (SOCOM) to find Bart Madison, and with the help of Danya, his Israeli lover and Mossad contact, he embarks on a journey that takes him to the jungles of Panama where he engages drug dealers and FARC terrorists, and back to America where he desperately searches for Bart and his ISIS contacts before they are able to follow through with their plan that would kill millions and devastate the nation.

This book is a page-turner in every sense. The author's background and experience have offered him a wealth of information which he puts to good use in this book. Details like how our security forces at home squabble over who's in charge, and how effective ISIS has been in recruiting Americans to conduct their bidding do not go unnoticed by the reader. I'm sure things in this book are happening all around us right now, and equally sure our government keeps them from the public in order to avoid panic.

In 'Six Minutes Early' the nuclear threat against America is alive and real, and one cannot help wonder if ISIS or some other similar terrorist group is planning such action against the United States this very moment. If such danger exists against America and our allies, I can only hope we have men like Max Kenworth, aided by women like Danya and Gail, and friends like Ludwig, to be on-hand if and when that day comes.
