Description

General Bob Underwood is en route to Syria when a rocket-propelled grenade strikes the side of his Humvee and the heavily armored convoy comes under attack. His bodyguard is brutally murdered, and Underwood himself is kidnapped. Hours later, the president and top officials watch in horror from the Oval Office as the general is viciously beheaded by an ISIS leader—broadcast live on the Al Jazeera television network.

The world is stunned by the bloody scene, but even more so that this supposedly loose-knit terrorist organization was able to orchestrate a lethal attack on the world’s most powerful military. American forces goes into high gear on land and sea to retaliate. But when the ISIS leader's son is killed in an American bombing raid, his rage knows no bounds, and he determines to wreak vengeance on the American homeland itself. Now it’s up to Op-Center to assemble its strike force, domestic and abroad,
to stay one step ahead of a ruthless enemy—while the fate of the world hangs in the balance…

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 20, 2016 – Galdorisi successfully goes solo in the suspenseful third entry in the Tom Clancy's Op-Center reboot (after 2015's Into the Fire, with Dick Couch). When the leader of ISIL, Mabab al-Dosari, beheads the American president's envoy in Iraq, the U.S. launches an air strike that leaves the terrorist's only son dead. Vowing revenge, al-Dosari recruits a homegrown terrorist cell to kidnap the man who orchestrated the attack, Rear Adm. Jay Bruner. When the FBI bungles Bruner's retrieval, the National Crisis Management Center Op-Center's official name steps up. Meanwhile, the admiral's Navy SEAL son, Lt. Dale Bruner, attempts to extract his father on his own and lands in the clutches of ISIL. An Op-Center book is always a master class in military acronyms and hardware, and the ever-expanding cast fights to keep the reader's attention through the abbreviations. Still, the simple hostage situations keep the tension cranked high and will satisfy Clancy fans old and new.

Customer Reviews

Sadly boring

Well, that was disappointing.... Kept waiting for this book to get better, but it never did. Shouldn't be able to put Clancy's name on this as it does him NO justice.

Over The Top

I think Stan Lee wrote this book.
