Originally published in 1980, Five Minutes to Midnight remains of great interest as a prophetic and frightening predictive vision of the threat of nuclear terrorism.As American Independence Day approaches, many millions are planning a celebratory holiday while one radical, Carlos the Jackal, leader of the dreaded Terror International, planner of the Entebbe highjacking and the massacre at the Munich Olympics, has plans to raise the level of terror to new heights while bringing the threat home to the U.S. with a stolen nuclear weapon.Standing in his way is Sam Sartain, a member of an elite counterintelligence team, who has long pursued Carlos and has learned to analyze the twisted mind and plans of a mass killer. As he follows a series of deadly leads that range from the University campus in Berkeley, California to a prison in Berlin, he must race against time to prevent a colossal act of destructive madness in Washington, DC itself.
