A renegade terrorist with a bottomless personal grudge against all things American targets the most visible symbol of American prestige and power one clear morning in Florida as NASA prepares to launch the Space Shuttle. This time the shuttle carries a high-profile payload and a high-paying visitor on board as a guest, and astronaut Kenai Munro, the FBI special agent Patrick Chisolm and U.S. Coast Guard Captain Cal Schyler are doing everything they can to help the launch go off without a hitch. Can one terrorist with a gift for mass murder subvert all the forces arrayed against him in a bid for recognition and revenge? Once again Dana Stabenow delivers an action-driven thriller with an ingenious, frightening, straight-from-the-headlines plot, certain to be her next bestseller, Prepared for Rage.

"The story opens with a rapid-fire introduction of characters in settings around the world, among them Cal Schyler, a Coast Guardsman on duty in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina; Akil, a Pakistani Muslim intent on avenging the death of his sister; and Kenai Munro, an astronaut at Florida's Kennedy Space Center, who is preparing to take a wealthy Middle Easterner into space. With her crisp narration Lorelei King keeps listeners engaged with the suspense and quick switches from a Schyler-Munro love tryst to the scenes of Middle-Eastern terrorist camps. King keeps the people, places, and motivations well defined with on-target characterization, particularly in her portrayals of Akil's terrorist mindset and Kenai's frustrations with her male-dominated professional world.
