Jake Grafton is given orders by the president to stop a terrorist attack. On a quiet park bench in Manhattan--just miles from the ruins of the World Trade Center--spymaster Jake Janos Illin delivers a chilling secret message to Jake Grafton: A rogue Russian general has sold four nuclear warheads to a radical Islamic terrorist group, the Sword of Islam. The group intends to detonate them in America in the ultimate terror strike, the apocalypse that will trigger a holy war between Western civilization and the Muslim world. After passing Illin's message to his superiors, Grafton is charged by the president with the task of assembling a secret team to find the warheads before America's population centers are consumed by a nuclear holocaust. As he hunts for the terrorists, Grafton soon finds himself up to his neck in power politics, techno-billionaires, money-grubbing traitors, anarchists, and spies.

A novel written for television commercial and series breaks. Characters are super-human for sensationalism. One can skip entire chapters and be comfortably entertained. Much like a TV series.
