“The combat scenes stand out…. Brown reinforces his position at the top of the military action genre.” —Publishers Weekly
In the freezing tundra of Siberia, Russian president Gennadiy Gryzlov descends into an impenetrable subterranean base to witness the test of a terrifying new weapon—the Thunderbolt. This new technological marvel is powerful enough to change the world as we know it.
The decisive new American president, John Dalton Farrell, intends to challenge Russian aggression head on. Brad and Patrick McLanahan and the formidable Iron Wolf Squadron—an elite, international group of warriors—are ready to join the battle.
Done with playing for small stakes, the Russian president has set his sights on the ultimate prize. The Russians have built a new high-tech space station and armed it with the Thunderbolt—capable of destroying U.S. satellites as well as launching powerful missiles pointed at strategic targets across Earth.
Devising a cunning plan of attack, Brad, Nadia, and the Iron Wolf warriors take to the skies in their advanced space planes to destroy the space station, check the Russians’ plan for dominance, and save the world. But is it already too late?
“Provides all the requisite sparks to keep the pages turning.” —Kirkus Reviews
