Summary

Barely into his 20s and already a highly decorated military hero, Army Special Forces veteran Blake Kershaw is now going to college, studying while recuperating from wounds received in Afghanistan, and planning to reenter the army as an officer after graduation. But life tosses Blake a curve when his country approaches him about using his special skills to avert a terrorist plot to detonate a nuclear device in a major eastern US city. To do that, he would need to become an operative deep within al-Qaeda’s innermost circles—changing his entire identity, even his face. A true patriot, Blake makes the journey into a shadow world that leaves friends, family, and, seemingly, even God far behind. But when things go terribly wrong, and his country looks set to destroy him, it is God and God’s people who intervene.

Critic reviews

“A hair-raising international military suspense thriller…The novel offers a fascinating, even sympathetic look into the brotherhood behind radical terrorism while showing how an operative narrowly stays alive to thwart disaster…A vivid portrayal of spy work and the inner workings of a terror cell.” (Publishers Weekly)

Great story from a believer!

This man is a believer in Jesus Christ, and has lived most of what he writes about. The story has similarities to Vince Flynn's Memorial Day, which was also great. Though this story is still definitely unique. I really like that Boykin weaves faith in Jesus Christ into the story.

I'm former Army in Afghanistan and Iraq, so I resonated with a lot of components of this story.

The narrator at first was reading too fast and with a staccato rhythm, but I sort of adapted to it--should have been a bit slower throughout. The narrator was excellent in using realistic voices for all the different characters, and he does an spectacular job of this.

The chapter breaks and development order were excellent. I really was impressed with how this was done.

Danger Close

This book was fast paced and intriguing. I hope to enjoy more by this author and narrator. The narrator was outstanding, too.
