Near Houston, Texas, an oil refinery belonging to one of the world's largest energy companies is obliterated by a "backpack" nuclear device -- the first of many planned global attacks against corporations and government organizations accused of plundering the world's natural resources.
A horrific act of war has been perpetrated against the U.S. and her interests -- and Major Jason Richter and his top-secret, high-tech Task Force TALON are dispatched to pursue, engage, and destroy this virulent new strain of terrorism.
Yet Richter's plan of swift, brutal, and unconventional action is threatened by an enemy buried deep in the highest level of government -- a mole whose blind desire for personal vengeance could doom Richter and his team . . . and America.

Dale Brown is the author of numerous New York Times bestsellers, including his 1987 work Flight of the Old Dog. His most recent bestseller was A Time for Patriots. A former captain in the U.S. Air Force and a current mission pilot in the Civil Air Patrol, he often flies his own plane in the skies over America.From AudioFile:
A high-tech thriller written by Brown and read by Dufris is a hard act to follow. First, you have gadgets like CID, a nine-foot robot you can climb inside and with which you can do superhuman feats. Then you have a reader whose natural voice is melodic and whose characterizations, including women, are one hundred percent convincing. All this comes together in a yarn about a group of conspirators who set off a thermonuclear device at an oil complex near Houston, killing thousands. Finally, you have U.S. Army Engineer Major Jason Richtor, a new character for Brown, who parlays smarts and technology into finding and eliminating the terrorist threat.
