Description

A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff.
A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before.
Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.
Ten days. And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something worse--far worse--than mere Armageddon.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 28, 2011 – Fans of Preston and Child’s bestselling Aloysius Pendergast novels (Relic, etc.) may want to take a pass on the unremarkable second Gideon Crew thriller (after 2011’s Gideon’s Sword), whose lead could be cut-and-pasted into any number of books by less gifted genre writers. A rare medical disorder has left Crew, a private contractor for the shadowy Effective Engineering Solutions, with just 11 months to live, but he can’t resist an opportunity to defuse a hostage situation in Queens. The hostage-taker, Reed Chalker, had worked with Crew at Los Alamos, and the FBI hopes Crew can calm Chalker, who believes the government is beaming rays into his head. The resolution of the standoff leads to fears that Chalker provided a weapons-grade nuclear core to Islamic terrorists. The unexciting action sequences that follow, including a duel with chain saws, fall well short of the authors’ usual high standard.

Customer Reviews

Action!

I felt more in touch with the main character in this installation. The character development was much richer. I was not initially a fan of the lest book. This book changed my mind. It incorporated more of the things Preston and Child are known for. The setting I the Jemez mountains and the partnerships were very good. Great read, done in three nights, waiting for the next installment.

Bam

Greatest thriller ever. Never have I read a such heart pounding mind blowing novel. No disappointment here.

Gideon's corpse

Amazing...couldn't put it down. Cannot wait for the next Gideon Crew novel.
Please keep up the great work individually and together.
I've read ALL of them.
