9781492944867: These Final Hours

Colonel Neil Mattox and his love, Chon Li Su, are trapped in Pyongyang, North Korea, awaiting the destruction of the city by the United States. A B-2 bomber will deliver a nuclear weapon, which will vaporize the city and all who remain in it. The U.S. and South Korea have joined forces, developed and delivered a biological agent, which will lower crop yields in an attempt to starve North Korea into submission. The North Koreans have discovered this secret and in revenge have detonated a nuclear weapon on U.S. soil. The U.S. in turn has vowed to destroy Pyongyang the same way, with a nuclear weapon. When North Korea takes hostages to prevent the destruction of Pyongyang, Col. Neil Mattox leads a rescue team composed of Army Rangers, Recon Marines, Navy Seals, a CIA paramilitary group and the U.K.’s Special Air Service into Pyongyang to evacuate the hostages. In Pyongyang Mattox discovers a hospital full of people, including over five hundred children, too sick to move – the U.S. will vaporize them along with the city if the attack is carried out. He also discovers a long-lost love, Chon Li Su, once a Korean CIA agent sent into the North to distribute the biological agent causing famine, who had elected to stay in the North to somehow make up for what the U.S. and South Korea had done to cause the starvation in the North. Mattox also finds their son who he never knew existed. Mattox is determined to stay with his love and their son while they and the rest of the allied forces desperately struggle to evacuate the sick Koreans from the doomed city. The allied forces finally come up with a plan, which will sacrifice themselves to save their enemy’s children.

About the Author:

John Campbell is the author of seven novels, a collection of short stories, and one nonfiction book. Using his experience as a U.S. Naval officer, and his extensive experience in the aerospace industry, he began his first novel in 1976 with a story about an attempt by North Korean special forces to hijack a U.S. nuclear aircraft carrier. Fifteen years later Raid On Truman was published in hardbound and paperback and was translated into Japanese for hardbound and paperback sales in Japan. That was the fulfillment of a dream to become a published novelist. He sold a second novel on the heels of the first. COBRA DANE was published in paperback in 1995. A third novel, Sub Zero, quickly followed and was published in 1996 along with publication in Japan. John has written four more novels, Vauclain’s Shield, Hidden Sun, These Final Hours, and The Telekinetic Man and a screenplay derived from The Telekinetic Man and is in the process of trying to sell them. Another book was published in 2003 just before the Iraqi War. Desert War was a nonfiction look at how the war might be conducted, weapons systems, intelligence gathering, and forces on both sides. While John was the author, his daughter, Christine researched the work. Influenced initially by the works of Ian Fleming and his brand of no-holds-barred action and intrigue, John has tried to bring to readers that same action elements, but with a large dose of sobering reality. Violence has profound consequences and the characters within John's novels feel all the passion and agony of real people. Raid On Truman, COBRA DANE, Sub Zero, Vauclain's Shield, These Final Hours, The Telekinetic Man, and Hidden Sun are available on Amazon's Kindle Store. Note that COBRA DANE has for its cover image a picture of the actual COBRA DANE radar on the island of Shemya in the Aleutians. Vauclain's Shield's cover image has a photo of actual reentry vehicles passing through the atmosphere over Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific, and Raid On Truman has a real picture of the USS Harry Truman taken by the author. A collection of fourteen sci-fi/horror/paranormal short stories, A Case of the Vapors was added to the Kindle store in August 2013. These stories run the gamut from the humorous A Case of the Vapors to the somber, but hopeful, The Iron Sergeant. John's literary website is http://johntcampbell.com/.
