What would we do if a nuclear weapon was detonated in Washington, and the US government suddenly disappeared? What would we do if a terrorist organization announced that it had concealed nuclear weapons in ever major western city and then demanded that the entire planet embrace its twisted brand of Muslin fundamentalism?  In Critcal Mass, nuclear interdiction expert James Deutsh and his tormented Muslim wife, Nabila, struggle to stop an impending nuclear attack on an American city. Along the way, they delve deep into the hidden world of nuclear terrorism and the experts who strive to contain it, and get a compelling look at the titanic battle within Islam over its own future--fundamentalist and rejecting, or compassionate and life-embracing?  Like Whitley Strieber's classics Warday and The Coming Global Superstorm, Critical Mass is torn straight from the dark pages of a very dangerous and very possible future.

About the Author:

WHITLEY STRIEBER is the bestselling author of more than twenty-five books, including the legendary Warday, Nature's End, and The Coming Global Superstorm, the basis of the movie The Day After Tomorrow. His most recent books, The Grays and 2012: The War for Souls, are both being made into films. His website, Unknown Country, is the largest of its kind in the world, exploring the edge of science and reality.

From AudioFile:

After turning Ann Coulter into a brain-munching alien (2012: THE WAR FOR SOULS), Whitley Strieber delivers a more serious political thriller. CRITICAL MASS starts out slow, then picks up with a terrorist nuclear attack on Las Vegas and a spy-versus-spy marathon. Strieber refuses to play the genre straight, so listeners also hear lectures on the science of radioactivity and the dangers of die-hard loyalty to a single party. Paul Boehmer narrates without much expression. All the dialogue sounds similar, with a slightly higher pitch, inconsistent accents, and long pauses between sentences. Boehmer's delivery of the narrative is clear but perhaps too steady, a style that makes it easy to lose track of the story thread. A novel like this should be read with frenzied energy, not the sound of a weather report. A.Z.W. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
