I tell you that before I tell you that I spent a weekend completely absorbed in this book. Though it is a purely fictional representation of an imaginary man and his `battle with current day evil', the knowledge, facts and back story are all a result of current political conditions and prior events. After reading this book, the realization of what ubiquitous evils lay waiting in the world scared me to death.
Between the author's history, his knowledge base, expertise and subsequent research, MJ Mollenhour knows of what he speaks; his eloquent mastery of the English language doesn't hurt either. His talents at storytelling and enlightenment are demonstrated on every single page. This is a MUST READ for anyone who believes events like the tragedy on 9-11 will never happen again.
TERRORISTS ARE HERE
These words immediately hooked me, wondering what the author meant. Then, I found that he was referring to sleeper agents of an Iranian terrorist named Saya-dar - - -
Jack McDonald is a former Army Ranger officer who is seriously considering graduate school, when he and a friend have a chance to provide security on a luxury yacht, the Arcturus. Jack soon finds himself in the adventure of a lifetime, with Cuban pirates, buried treasure, and nuclear material, which Saya-dar is planning on using against the United States.
As the story unfolds, suicide bombers are smuggled into the country, and . . . well, I don't want to give anything away.
Jack also discovers the love of his life, Donna, while on the cruise. The story takes them from the Bahamas to Knoxville, Tennessee, where Jack, Donna, and her uncle Gordon are engaged in a mortal battle with Saya-dar's men.
This story is fiction, but as well known firearms writer and instructor Massad Ayoob reports here:
Those who patrol the borders - and those who own adjoining property - find things left behind by the border-crossers, such as Moslem prayer rugs and copies of the Koran. Since there aren't a whole lot of Mexicans who practice the Moslem faith, this leads people of logic to the conclusion that Islamic fanatics who have declared a fatwa against the United States are crossing into our country there.
So, we know they have come across the southern border. . .
About the author: M. J. Mollenhour is a former Army Ranger and is a Knoxville attorney.
