A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff. A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before. Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: In ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack. Ten days. And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something worse-far worse-than mere Armageddon. Read by David W. Collins. David W. Collins began building his voice-over career almost 10 years ago, performing in numerous radio spots, video games, national TV commercials and phone systems. Before relocating to Los Angeles earlier this year, David was seen in a theatrical run at Berkeley Repertory Theater, and performed the National Anthem as a soloist at various sporting events around the San Francisco Bay Area.

From Booklist:

The second Gideon Crew novel is definitely smoother than Gideon’s Sword (2011). The character’s substantial backstory was laid out in detail in the first book but is only briefly summarized here, allowing the authors to jump right into the story, in which Gideon, the former art thief and nuclear researcher turned secret agent, must try to defuse an explosive terrorist plot before time runs out. Gideon, an engaging fellow from the get-go, lives up to his initial promise, demonstrating an intelligence and resourcefulness that should endear him to adventure fans. He’s no Special Agent Pendergast, hero of Preston and Child’s better-known series—he lacks the subtlety and the air of mystery—but he’s a solid action hero. The first novel was a sort of shakedown cruise as the authors tried out a new character. If this follow-up is any indication, it should be smooth sailing from here on. --David Pitt
