Working with a team to analyze and defeat external threats to US security, Dan must deal with a terrorist plot to smuggle in dirty-bomb material using the established drug-cartel methods. In the meantime, there's an internal threat from disgruntled military elements involving an attempt on the president's life using the "football"-the mysterious suitcase that accompanies the president at all times, containing the codes and protocols to launch a nuclear strike. Only Dan can stop a plot that would engineer a coup against the president.

"There's a lot more to this plot, and the narrator's performance, than first meets the ear. For starters, Presidential Aide Dan Lenson seems very much like a cross between Clancy's Jack Ryan and Koontz's Jake Grafton. Like the two popular heroes, Lenson hunts terrorists and Latin drug bosses. But there's an edge to Lenson, played to the hilt by Ray Porter, that doesn't materialize until you're halfway through this thriller. Writer and narrator take listeners from tense moments, as when the presidential helicopter Marine 1 drops like a rock, to the appalling sadness of scenes involving orphaned and starving children in a third-world country. Porter conveys every emotional instant without missing a beat. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
