The prologue provides us with a highly plausible description of how a Middle Eastern group produces a number of terrorists specifically programmed to target the United States, along with the hint of a proposed framework of a workable plot against the country.
The story begins with the action of one of the terrorists as he proceeds with a bombing at the Santa Fe, NM Airport and follows with the re-activation of Bob Danforth. Bob is a 66-year old highly respected Field Agent of the CIA who has retired and is living comfortably with his `love of his life' wife and frequent visits with this son, now a Brigadier General assigned to a Delta Force Operation under CIA direction, his daughter-in-law and their young son.
Bob's wife is unhappy but understanding. He secretly is elated and moves swiftly into action. Because pursuit of criminal action within the boundaries of the United States is under the jurisdiction of bureaus other than the CIA, innumerable complications arise, not the least of which is interdepartmental jealousy. A leak to a congressional member and to the press ultimately extends all of the way to the President. The president takes action that jeopardizes further investigation and together with activity of the press places Bob and his boss in an untenable situation, Bob's son in one of infinite danger and his wife in a disastrous situation.
This is a real page turner and, although one of a series with the action involving all of the main characters to whom the reader formerly has been introduced, is a book that can well stand alone. Additionally, the action and tension not only are at the same high level and the plot as interesting as others in the series, but perhaps of even greater impact is the fact that we quite easily could expect to see similar activity splashed across the headlines almost at any time. Again, it is a story the reader will find `hard to put down'. Reviewed by John H. Manhold award winning fiction/non-fiction author.
Reminds me of when I was driving back to NY shortly after 9/11, seeing drones in the air over Kansas and looking into the cab of every truck on the interstates, wondering where the next attack would originate.
I'm eagerly awaiting the next in the series.
Joe Badal also has an obviously analytical mind, and that only adds to the intrinsic drama and foundation for plausibility that is so frequently missing in this genre. In this most recent book of the Danforth line, I also took great pleasure, as I am sure Badal did, in the bashing of bureaucrats and cynical politicians-----how more relevant can you be given today's political climate?
I highly recommend The Lone Wolf Agenda, and really, all of Badal's books----I've read them all!
