From the executive producer of 24 and co-creator of Homeland, this exciting follow-up to Gideon’s War involves a harrowing attempt to stop a homegrown terrorist plot to destroy the U.S. government.

THE RIVETING SEQUEL TO GIDEON ’S WAR, HOWARD GORDON’S “AHEAD -OF -THE -CURVE THRILLER” (Alex Berenson) WITH A HERO WHO “TAKES SAVING THE WORLD TO THE NEXT LEVEL” (Vince Flynn). . . .

“Move over, Jack Bauer,” raved Vince Flynn when international peacemaker Gideon Davis burst onto the literary scene in a blockbuster debut novel from Howard Gordon, the executive producer of 24.

Now, the action and suspense intensify in his harrowing new thriller. Settled into academic life and weeks away from being married, Gideon gets wind of a homegrown terrorist plot—a high-value, mass-casualty attack targeting the top tier of the U.S. government. His ex-girlfriend, FBI agent Nancy Clement, believes Gideon’s suspicions are valid, but no one will trust his source: a meth-head informant affiliated with a white supremacist group. When the informant is murdered, Gideon enlists his brother, Tillman—newly sprung from prison—as an undercover operative to infiltrate the real conspirators. With only Nancy’s support, Gideon and Tillman go rogue to stop a powerful titan’s audacious plan as the seconds tick closer to mass destruction.

About the Author:

Howard Gordon is an Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning writer and producer who has worked in Hollywood for more than twenty years. He co-created the hit Showtime series Homeland, and is the showrunner of the NBC series Awake. He also served as executive producer of the hit television show 24 for its full eight-season run, and prior to working on 24, Gordon was a writer and executive producer for The X-Files. He lives with his family in Pacific Palisades, California.

From Booklist:

The follow-up to Gideon’s War (2011) reads like another intense season of 24, the show Gordon produced. Gideon Davis is enjoying retirement and life with his fiancée when he receives evidence of an impending terrorist attack on Washington, D.C. His contacts at his former employer don’t believe him or his source. After investigating a bit further and discovering ties to a white-supremacist movement, he recruits his brother, Tillman, to help him stop the plot before lives are lost. Tillman realizes the only way to succeed is if he infiltrates the group. The suspense never wavers for a second, and the main characters are solid. Gordon does a great job of balancing the development of the heroes and nonstop action. Fans of Vince Flynn and the television adventures of Jack Bauer will eat this up. Gordon just keeps getting better. --Jeff Ayers
