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.

I cannot say why exactly, but this book failed to grab me and I simply could not get into it. It was difficult enough to give it the 100-paget test before I gave up

Fast Read and keeps your interest - nice to have a new hero in their mix

Second in series - read Gideon's Sword first.

Excellent, fast read, good plot.

A bit too many outliers within the story that slowed down the pace of the story. Also, one impossible episode caving in a deep old mine with only a cigaret lighter! The wrap up however is good. But bring back Agent Aloysius XL Pendergast!

Another wild ride from Preston and Child. Although I do not enjoy this series quite as much as the Aloysius Pendergast novels, this is still a lot of fun. I enjoyed this second Gideon Crew book even more than the first.

Preston & Child have something in this Gideon guy! I like him and I like what they're doing with him.
