A day in infamy, 9/11 was the worst attack on American soil, but it is not last by terrorists or even potentially the most dangerous.  Like the Oklahoma City bomber did, a cell of terrorists after years of assembling the needed ingredients drive a truck into a shopping mall killing thousands including sacrificing themselves as martyrs to their cause. 

 

On an American plane, an Ebola like virus rapidly spreads attacking everyone on board.  With no other recourse to prevent the spread beyond the tomb of a plane, the military blows up the jet, killing the dying hundreds on board.  The French send samples from a top secret lab that contained the man made virus funded by Sheik Hussein al Ferroq.  He plans to deploy Typhoid Mary like carriers to spread the disease across American; killing millions.  Special Agent Jericho Quinn, who reports directly to the Director of National Intelligence and the President, is assigned to assassinate the “Marys” before the dormant biological bomb they carry inside their body goes active.

 

Marc Cameron provides a deep look into the mind of a terrorist whose ism is the only icon their brain carries.  In this case, the martyrs believe they are doing what the prophet would expect of them.  Quinn will remind readers of Captain America (without a sidekick) as he gave up much of his personal life including his wife and daughter to become the ultimate warrior.  Somewhat pulp fiction, readers will enjoy this totally entertaining thriller; as a quintessential American hero fight terrorists to keep people safe.
