9781593155780: Diamondhead

When Navy SEAL Mack Bedford’s fellow officers are brutally killed by Iraqi insurgents using a cruel, new, anti-tank Diamondhead missile, Mack avenges their murders by gunning down the then-unarmed attackers, ultimately getting himself court-martialed and kicked out of the Navy in the process. To make matters worse, Mack then learns that the Diamondhead missiles were sold illegally by French industrialist and infamous politician Henri Foche. Mack suspects that Foche will succeed in his campaign to become the next French president and fears that his election will promote the spread of international terrorism.

In addition, Mack has a gravely ill son whose life can only be saved with an experimental and unaffordable foreign medical procedure. So when Mack is asked to help assassinate Henri Foche, he finds himself agreeing. His reward: a chance at survival for both his son and the country.

But before Mack can reach Foche, a jilted mercenary group warns the Frenchman of the threat, greatly increasing the difficulty of Mack’s solo assassination attempt. Can Mack track down and murder the French tyrant as he has been commissioned to do? Does he have the power to restore his reputation as a Navy SEAL? And will he be able to save his son before it’s too late?

About the Author:

Patrick Robinson is the coauthor of the recent New York Times #1 nonfiction bestseller Lone Survivor. He is also the author of seven international bestselling suspense thrillers, including To the Death, Nimitz Class, and Hunter Killer, as well as several nonfiction bestsellers. He lives in Ireland and spends his summers in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

From Publishers Weekly:

Near the start of this straightforward action thriller from bestseller Robinson ( Ghost Force), insurgents fire internationally banned Diamondhead missiles at a tank convoy in central Iraq led by Navy SEAL Lt. Cdr. Mackenzie Bedford, incinerating a number of Mack's men in their tanks. In retaliation, Mack guns down the dozen Arabs who fired the missiles as they attempt a fake surrender, for which he's drummed out of the navy. Back home, Mack's son, Tommy, is suffering from a rare disease that can only be cured by an operation costing $1 million. Mack agrees to help assassinate right-wing politician Henri Foche, a major shareholder in the French manufacturer of the Diamondhead, to earn that $1 million. Foche, who's running for the presidency of France, promises policies that will ruin the shipbuilding livelihood of Mack's Maine community if he wins the election. Despite the opposition, Mack marches implacably and sometimes implausibly on to his foregone triumph. (May)
