The book continues the story of Riley Covington, a Christian linebacker for the Colorado Mustangs. He is however quickly pulled back into serving his country in the Counter Terrorism Division. His team tries to track down a terrorist plot before it takes place, but they are too late. As a result, mass chaos takes place. They then must frantically try to stop the second part of the plot before it happens.

This book is an exciting ride in the shoes of the main character. It is also a scary look at what could happen if a terrorist attack of this magnitude ever hit the United States. It also takes a passing glance at the things that are both good and bad about the United States. What I also found interesting was the different reactions to the same situation by the Christian characters compared to the other characters. While not an overtly Christian book, it did have a few occasions where it did highlight the Christian view. It is a pretty quick read, and held my attention all the way through the book. I enjoyed the book, and having not read the first 2 books in this series I am now interested in getting those too.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me a complimentary copy of this book for review.
