Publisher's Summary

Violence and tensions along the US-Mexican border have never been higher, sparked by battles between rival drug lords and an increased flow of illegal migrants. To combat the threat, the United States has executed Operation Rampart: a controversial test base in southern California run by Major Jason Richter and TALON, his high-tech special operations unit. Their success is threatened by a drug kingpin and migrant smuggler named Ernesto Fuerza. In the guise of Mexican nationalist "Commander Veracruz", he causes a storm of controversy on both sides of the border, calling for a revolution to take back the northernmost "Mexican states", the Southwest United States. His real intention is to make it easier to import illegal drugs across the border. Soon Richter and his force are reassigned to the FBI to take on a deadly mission that will bring him face-to-face with Fuerza and set off a wave of bloodshed that threatens to become an all-out guerrilla war. Lurking behind Fuerza is Richter's nemesis, former Soviet nuclear forces commander turned terror mastermind Yegor Zakharov, who is set on revenge to the very end.

Audible Editor Reviews

The combination of illegal immigration and advanced military weapons research promises an edge-of-the-seat thriller. The story begins as illegal immigrants are killed near Operation Rampart, a test military base with a crew of Talon robots in Southern California. Michael McShane effectively manipulates pitch and tone, creates a variety of male and female characters, and delivers American and Mexican accents.


What the Critics Say

"Brown puts us into the cockpit....Authentic and gripping." ( The New York Times)
"Action junkies...will zip through this near-future techno-thriller." ( Publishers Weekly)

Edge of pants

I really love dale browns early books but this is possibly the worst piece of crap i've heard. The story makes no sense it is continuing an older story from another book that i never read. Its an anti Mexican rant that means nothing to a brit. Leave this book and spend your credits elsewhere.
