Suicide bombers are coming to America's heartland. Their targets: our most precious and vulnerable assets, our children.  Following the most terrifying lead of his life, CIA Director Kirk McGarvey traces the threat to a Saudi playboy prince, but the White House wants nothing to do with McGarvey's assumptions. Accusing a Saudi prince of such a heinous plan will surely strain the delicate political balance between the United States and Saudi Arabia. But McGarvey refuses to let politics stand in the way of his investigation, even if it means that the president of the United States will call him a traitor, even if it means he must resign as director of the CIA, and even if it means his meddling will lead to the kidnapping and brutal beating of his own wife. From the deadly, frigid Alaskan waters to the balmy breezes of the French Riviera and finally to the Saudi Arabian embassy in Washington, D.C., Mac fights through his own nation's restraints to stop suicide bombers willing to martyr themselves for their cause as Soldiers of God.… (mer)

This is a standard thriller. It features your basically monstrous terrorist (Jihadists have simply replaced Nazis or KGB thugs) and a director of the CIA who gets out from behind his desk occasionally to save the world. It is a bit loony in that sense, in violating the reality that CIA directors are mostly old men who couldn't last 10 seconds with a trained assassin. The work does feature a strong narrative that keeps you turning the pages, but it's really quite primitive in terms of characterization and dialogue. Someone should also register Mr. Hagberg in a History of Feminism course. ( )
