Internationally renowned journalist, former foreign correspondent, Pentagon and war reporter Al Pessin brings to life the war in Afghanistan in his second Task Force Epsilon thriller, as a daring undercover mission must avert catastrophe.
"Adventure, political intrigue, suspense, and action galore." --Steve Berry
Explosions rock London, Paris, and Washington. Casualties number in the thousands. The President orders his covert agencies to retaliate with full force. It's time to launch Operation Blowback.
The Defense Intelligence Agency's Bridget Davenport was in the strike zone when the terrorists attacked. Claiming responsibility is Al-Souri, a jihadist who has consolidated multiple extremist cells in Syria. He plans to establish his own rule and wage all-out war against the West.
For Blowback to succeed, Bridget needs a covert operative to infiltrate Al-Souri's forces. U. S. Army Lieutenant Faraz Abdallah is still recovering from his last mission. But both he and Bridget know he's the only man for the job. Faraz must re-enter the terrorists' deadly world -- before America's enemies launch their next offensive.
"Reading Blowback is like saddling a rocket. Once it gets going, hang on for the ride!"
"A riveting and relentless read."
"Blowback kept me up all night. Al Pessin is the new Tom Clancy."
"A timely thriller that pulls no punches. Highly recommended."
