Fatalities are few. But the massive Electronic Magnetic Pulse it creates knocks out electronic banking, shuts down 911 communications, internet, telephone, television, and cell phones.
U.S. president Steve Harris suspects foreign enemy terrorists. But other questions gnaw at his brain: What do they want? And what if rogue government agents from his own country are colluding with them?
Harris calls in Special Forces commander John (J.T.) Ryan, the only person in whom he has confidence to solve a case which, he learns, could also involve assassinations of two government employees by his own country's govenrnent agents.
Can the savvy Ryan and his teammates, FBI Assistant Director Erin Welch—whose fiancé was one of the assassinated—and CIA agent Rachel West, out-think the nameless, faceless enemies who have not yet made a demand?
Or will Ryan and his team—for the first time—be rendered helpless bystanders as the USA remains under threat of nine more suitcase-sized nuclear weapons in the hands of the terrorists?
So, kick back, lovers of spy fiction, and enjoy Tripwire, the latest in award-winning author, Lee Gimenez’s, J.T. Ryan series!
The element of betrayal permeates the storyline with panache. Erin, backed by FBI Director Scott Cooper, and Rachel, under command of Deputy Director Alex Miller, suspect an information leak but cannot substantiate their misgivings. It is left to Ryan to solve the mystery after a suitcase bomb results in an EMP strike leaving Pennsylvania in a state of chaos. He follows his leads to Vancouver, where the terror cell prepares an attack designed to devastate the West Coast. Readers will be unable to put this down until they reach the harrowing climax.
For espionage lovers, suspense/thriller fans and Gimenez's growing legion of fans, Tripwire by Lee Gimenez is one you can't miss.
Tripwire is a thriller that explores just that "what if" scenario. What if we had to go through a nuclear explosion on U.S. soil? How far would the fallout drift and how long would it take for it to dissipate? How big would the explosion field be and how many U.S. citizens would be taken out immediately?
How many countries have the ability to do that now? Well, the U.S. is one. Why would another country develop the technology themselves when they could just infiltrate to get something the U.S. has already developed and miniaturized?
Who could find out that information and locate it then neutralize the consequences? It would almost have to be an inside job or have inside help.
On a grim day, the U.S. President receives word that one of our nuclear devices has been stolen. Who has it and what are they going to do with it? The president does not know anyone in his circle that he can completely trust to find out. He decides he must call on his reliable standbys...J.T. Ryan is the main operator.
While the team of Ryan, Welch, and West are serving the president in that capacity, a nuclear bomb goes off in Pennsylvania! As awful as it is, this is only a preview of what could happen if the bad guys can get their hands on more bombs.
Tripwire gets five stars for edge-of-the- seat suspense. ---- Sara Marie Hogg, writing as reviewer Phoebe Stogstill
