With an undeniable authority on the subject of all things nuclear, Robert Gleason brings readers' worst fears surrounding nuclear terrorism to life in this character-driven, page-turning thriller. After allying itself with Pakistan's intelligence services and notorious terrorist group, the Tehrik-e- Taliban-Pakistan (TTP), ISIS is ready to achieve its ultimate dream: Forcing the US into a clash of civilisations in the Mideast. The best way to accomplish this mission is to acquire three Pakistani nukes - then set them off in three US cities. The head of the CIA's Pakistan desk, Elena Moreno, and an intrepid journalist, Jules Meredith, are on their trail. Unfortunately, a powerful Saudi ambassador is blackmailing a corrupt American president, and now both men will do anything to stop these two women - to the point of having them killed. All the while, a notorious Pakistani terrorist, who twenty years ago was Elena's college lover, is leading a highly skilled, highly trained terrorist team into the US. They are armed with three Hiroshima-style nukes and are hell-bent on incinerating the three American cities. Can the two women stop them? The clock is ticking.
And Into the Fire is a novel to rank with Vince Flynn's Consent to Kill, Brad Meltzer's Retribution, and Brad Thor's Act of War.
