A New York Times bestseller!

"A smoothly written story by two authors who understand the inner workings of U.S. intelligence, government, and the military, and tell a frightening and exciting tale about a very new, but also a very old threat."-Larry Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Dangerous Ground

Before 9/11, America was protected by a covert force known as Op-Center. The charter was top secret, and the team reported directly to the president. They used undercover operatives with SWAT capabilities to defuse crises around the world, and they were tops in their field. But after the World Trade Center disaster, Op-Center was disbanded-leaving the country in terrible danger.. .


When terrorists detonate bombs in sports stadiums around the country-leaving men, women, and children dead or mutilated-the president executes an emergency order to reboot Op-Center. This latest, upgraded version is capable of dealing with the high-tech crises of the twenty-first century-like the lethal one brewing in the Middle East. A renegade Saudi prince with ambitions of controlling the world's oil supply has an ingenious plot to manipulate America into attacking Syria and launching a war against Iran. Next, they would ignite a sleeper cell to attack the American homeland, resulting in a bloodbath unlike any other. Only the men and women of Op-Center realize the terror about to be unleashed. Only they have the courage to issue a warning no one wants to hear. But will anyone believe them?

"Packs plenty of pulse-raising action."- Publishers Weekly

I completely agree with bspaet. If you enjoy reading minutes from past meetings at work, this is the book for you. The first 300 pages of this 384 page book are people talking to each other in a meeting setting. Very boring.

It's nice to see this series resurrected in such competent hands. The authors bring back Tom Clancy's Op Center in realistic fashion with the same kind of story lines that feel like they could realistically take place today. There is a sense of continuity with the book framed in a scenario that begins with old characters, but picks up with a refreshed set of new players. It depicts America's responses to situations as the authors would like to envision, but that seem somewhat like an unlikely fantasy with our political climate as it is now.

shooting the archer instead of the arrow.

There were new leaders with new agendas, but there was still revenge, religious tension, and greed.
