About this title

Synopsis:

In December 2001, CIA paramilitary operative Matt Garrett is mysteriously pulled from Pakistan as he closes in for the kill of Al Qaeda senior leadership and is reassigned to a low-profile mission in the Philippines. But as he sifts through the wreckage of a downed C-130 in the tangled jungle, he finds a dead U.S. Special Forces paratrooper who is not supposed to be there and is thrown into a contest of wits and resiliency in the uncharted rainforests of Mindanao. Manipulated by the secret plans of a powerful quartet of upper-echelon Rolling Stones groupies in Washington, DC, Garrett and U.S. Armed Forces establish their bona fides as true patriots on the cutting edge of freedom as they struggle for survival against the rising tide of Islamic extremism and the reemergence of the Empire of the Sun in the ever-expanding Global War on Terror. In the stunning prequel to his award-winning novel Rogue Threat, A.J. Tata creates an uncanny sense of presence on and off the battlefield in Sudden Threat, a novel rife with conspiracy, diplomatic double-talk, betrayal, loyalty, valor and honor.

From the Inside Flap:

CIA paramilitary operative Matt Garrett is mysteriously yanked from the Northwest Frontier Province of Pakistan as he closes in for the kill of al Qaeda senior leadership.With unfinished business in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and the nation suddenly on a bullet train to combat in Iraq, Matt is abruptly given an obscure assignment in China and the Philippines. As he sifts through the wreckage of a destroyed C-130 aircraft in the Philippine jungle, he finds a dead U.S. Special Forces paratrooper and begins to question the path that placed him on the periphery of the Global War on Terror. Pursued by a militia of Muslim insurgents, Matt stumbles upon a weapons factory guarded by Japanese soldiers in the uncharted rain forests of Mindanao.Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Matt, his brother, U.S. Army Captain Zachary Garrett, is rapidly deployed with his infantry company to guard an ammunition stockpile in an old U.S. Navy base near Manila. As the insurgency swarms across the island nation, the two brothers fight an elusive, but potent enemy while a powerful group in Washington, DC called The Rolling Stones pursues their goal of keeping the country focused on the fight against Islamic extremism ... at all costs. “Mick Jagger” and his band duel within the Washington, DC beltway against others that are equally driven toward war in Iraq. As the Garrett brothers face mortal combat, the beltway histrionics continue, and take an unexpected lethal turn.
