Description

Act of War takes readers deep into the new world of intelligence-focused warfare, and introduces a new hero: thirty-two-year-old army engineer Jason Richter, designer of a whole array of futuristic infantry weapons and devices to hunt down a new breed of enemy. His unlikely partner is FBI Special Agent Kelsey Cornell, a no-nonsense intelligence officer who is caught between two brutal worlds: the terrorists who kill without remorse and Richter's high-tech military hunter-killers who will stop at nothing to destroy them. As the head of a top-secret military unit, code-named Task Force TALON, Richter must lead his group against a cabal of international terrorists-backed by a powerful consortium-who are determined to destabilize the global economy.

Professional reviews

"A high-tech thriller written by Brown and read by Dufris is a hard act to follow. First, you have gadgets like CID, a nine-foot robot you can climb inside and with which you can do superhuman feats. Then you have a reader whose natural voice is melodic and whose characterizations, including women, are one hundred percent convincing. All this comes together in a yarn about a group of conspirators who set off a thermonuclear device at an oil complex near Houston, killing thousands. Finally, you have U.S. Army Engineer Major Jason Richtor, a new character for Brown, who parlays smarts and technology into finding and eliminating the terrorist threat. A.L.H.
