On the President's orders . . . one man is tasked with averting nuclear war
When the U.S. develops intelligence showing that Iran is in the final stages of assembling a nuclear bomb, the President orders Breanna Stockard and the Whiplash team to destroy it before the renegade nation can destabilize the shaky Middle East. Left with no other choice, Stockard sends young Air Force ace Turk Mako behind enemy lines. His orders: pilot a squadron of high-tech nano-UAVs from inside Iran to destroy the weapon and its assembly bunker. Turk and his accompanying Delta Force team succeed, only to discover another site and another device. With the fate of the region hanging in the balance, Turk and Delta Force must fight off Revolutionary Guards, Iranian MiGs, and the elite Quds Force to locate and destroy the second weapon. With time running out, Turk takes matters into his own hands, hoping to accomplish what no machine ever could . . . stop a nuclear war before it begins.

ONCE I STARTED TO READ THIS BOOK, I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN UNTIL I FINISHED IT. IT IS A TYPICAL DALE BROWN BOOK WHICH KEEPS UP THE SUPPENSE UNTIL THE END. I COMPLETELY ENJOYED THIS BOOK. DALE BROWN HAS BECOME MY FAVORITE AUTHOR AND I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO READ HIS NEXT BOOK.
Really, really bad. Poor character development, all the personalities come out flat, no dimension. The editing is appalling. For example, at one point an aircraft is flying at "X" meters above the ground and moving at "Y" kilometers per hour. Then, two pages later another aircraft is flying at "A" FEET above the ground at "B" miles per hour. Another example is a chapter titled "3 Days Later" yet in the first paragraph the primary character is described as being at a facility for 5 days. Make up your mind. I do not know who really wrote the book, suffice to say that I would really like to have my $10 back.
