In the wake of Desert Storm, a defecting Iraqi scientist has revealed Saddam Hussein's horrifying plans for a devastating counterstrike against his enemies...and the world. With no time to spare, American forces must remobilize to locate and neutralize the underground laboratory where a lethal super-virus is ready to be unleashed. But an eleventh-hour disaster thrusts the entire mission into the hands of Air Force comrades-in-arms Colonel Will Westerman and Reserve Colonel-turned-commercial pilot Doug Harris. Flying into the heart of Iraqi power, they must depend on their skills--and each other--as never before, to complete a mission that looks more and more like a suicide run...

Brian Emerson is an actor and technical director with a long career in the Washington, DC, and Baltimore areas.From AudioFile:
As the audiobook market enlarges, publishers are reviving earlier titles of successful authors. John J. Nance's SCORPION STRIKE is one such offering. The story takes place just after Operation Desert Storm ends when a run away Iraqi scientist reveals Saddam Hussein is about to unleash "the mother of all biological weapons" on an unsuspecting world. Nance's thriller is exciting but predictable. Brian Emerson's reading is more than satisfactory, but his matter-of-fact voice is not charged with the excitement the book engenders. Nonetheless, neither the story nor Emerson strikes out. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
