"Fitzpatrick’s debut political thriller untangles the depths of government corruption in the event of a terrorist attack on the United States’ major cities.
Tommy Burk, a Vietnam veteran and general tough guy, gets pulled into the thick of a terrorist attack when he gets called in by his old commander, New York City’s Police Commissioner Riley. As the American Muslim Brotherhood sets forest fires across America, three ticking bombs also imminently threaten New York, Chicago and LA-that is, until Burk proves them duds. This revelation embarrasses an inept, crooked federal government, led by the fumbling President Hilton, who quickly tries to frame Burk as the villain despite his heroic deeds. By the time the fiendish vice president orders a 9/11-esque attack on a Saudi skyscraper and then pays the fatal price for his actions, the government has really lost control. After repeatedly escaping capture and even death, Burk, Riley and their newfound ally, reporter Kelly Sullivan, become real heroes. Fitzpatrick’s fast-paced narrative is full of sharp turns, many of which are charmingly unbelievable…."

"A linguistics professor’s inherited relic sets an arms dealer on her trail in Mayhall’s debut religious thriller. The conversations are weighty but never burdensome thanks to thriller genre conventions: a formidable villain with a penchant for taking artifacts that aren’t his; a murder, a kidnapping and a face-to-face showdown; and lots of suspense—indeed, simply opening the jar takes quite some time. The brilliantly open ending steers clear of definitive answers but provides adequate closure. A solid thriller with an invigorating religious theme."
