From the corridors of power in Washington to the frontlines of the war on terror -- in Act of War, Dale Brown takes you to the heart of the action and introduces Jason Richter, his most exhilarating character to date.
Near Houston, an oil refinery belonging to one of the world's largest energy companies is destroyed by a "backpack" nuclear device -- just one of many attacks being perpetrated around the world by a group whose mission is to stop global corporations and government organizations from plundering the world's natural resources in the name of profit.
Jason Richter and his top-secret high-tech military unit, Task Force TALON, are called in to track down and defeat this new brand of international terrorism. Richter knows that the only way to snare his opponents is to beat them at their own game: Be unconventional, swift, and brutal.
If he fails, it won't be just the lives of his team that are lost, but America itself.

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.
