General Patrick McLanahan returns in a battle to expose the corruption at the heart of the American government. General Patrick McLanahan's provocative Aerospace Battle Force has grown in to a fully fledged task force, based in orbit on the Armstrong Space station. However, their successfull defeat of the Iranian threat is making people nervous. Apparently under pressure from the Russians, the UN and the liberal press, newly elected President Joseph Gardener cuts their funding and fires McLanahan branding him an obstacle to the peace process. What the public doesn't know is that Gardener is being blackmailed by the Russians who hold damning evidence of his adulterous relationships and other scandals. With the ABF de-comissioned the Russians begin to amass troops around Iran and the Persian Gulf. McLanahan, going against orders, attacks the Russian forces and delays their attack. He warns the Russians that he will act unilaterally to stop them advancing in the Persian Gulf. Though the President, furious with his behaviour, has ordered his arrest, McLanahan is virtually untouchable and he knows it.Located on one of the most secure bases ever built, in command of an arsenal of the most sophisticated air weapons in the world, even the Marines and the FBI cannot touch him - for now. McLanahan, up against his own countrymen and an army of aggressive Russians must struggle to clear his name and expose the President's corruption

Publishers Weekly, 2008-03-31 The U.S. is still recovering from "the American Holocaust," a Russian air strike that killed and wounded thousands in 2004, at the start of this clunky techno-thriller from bestseller Brown (Strike Force). In 2009, Lieutenant General McLanahan, commander of the High Technology Aerospace Weapons Center, fears the Russians are covertly arming Iran, now known as the Democratic Republic of Persia. An immoral and weak U.S. president, Joseph Gardner, doesn't help the situation. Full of technical prose ("Skybolt was powered by a MHDG, or magnetohydrodynamic generator, which used two small nuclear reactors to rapidly shoot a slug of molten metal back and forth through a magnetic field to produce the enormous amount of power required by the laser") and broadly drawn characters, from Gardner, who can't keep his pants on even during a global crisis, to Senate majority leader Stacy Anne Barbeau, who wields her cleavage in the interests of her constituents as well as national security, this novel will appeal to readers who care more about advanced weaponry than a plausible plot.
