Terrorism in the United States follows young Sherry Hannon as she finds herself dealing with what she has feared for quite some time: a terrorist plot against a Virginia nuclear power plant. As the FBI and military learn of the plot, Sherry discovers that even the best of America's men can still fail, and the cost of their failure could be millions of lives. Terrorism in the United States is a riveting thriller based a real danger. Debra Gaynor of Another review said of Terrorism in the United States, it captured my attention and held it captive until the last page. I live in an area that is being considered for a new nuclear plant. Reading this does not make me feel very secure. My concern goes beyond the environment. My chief concern is terrorism in the heartland. Captain Edward M. Brittingham's Terrorism In The United States is a fictional account, the setting is real, and some of the events are real. This book is a thriller. A terrorist cell plans to destroy a power plant in Virginia. The plant is real, and the security record is accurate. Very good. No dust jacket. Signed by author.

Synopsis:

When Sherry Hannon first hears about the shootings at Virginia Tech, she wonders, Could this be a terrorist act? Given the history of violence and fear in the United States leading up to this moment, she can hardly be blamed for her suspicions.But soon, Sherry finds out about the subject first-hand. As she falls in love with a mysterious man named Bandar Blitte, she becomes entrenched in his secret dealings with a terrorist cell bent on destroying a nuclear power plant in Maine—a site with a long history of safety breaches and citizen protests. And the more she knows, the more danger she finds herself in.While Blitte and his cohorts concoct their evil plan, the FBI and the Navy SEALS are making plans of their own and keeping watch on the nuclear facility. When the two groups finally come face to face, who will win? The terrorists, or those whom we trust to defeat them? Terrorism in the United States is a sweeping epic that paints a scathing picture of homeland security in the United States from World War II through the present day. Based on true events and settings, it will leave readers wondering just how safe they are in America today.
