A stunning and determined college blonde, with a powerful yen for her handsome professor, tries to get his attention by relating some suspicious activities by a naturalized physicist with a deep-seated but hidden hatred of the United States. To be safe, the prof asks a buddy in the FBI to check it out. It turns out the physicist is in league with Al Qaeda to try to sneak two potent radioactive dirty bombs into the US to explode simultaneously in New York and Washington.
The coed plays an unexpectedly dangerous role helping the FBI in the ensuing investigation, which before it’s over includes intelligence agents from Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Interpol and Canada, all attempting to thwart the ingenious plot. Blood is spilled. “In war innocents die,” a top Al Qaeda operative declares dismissively. In the course of the probe, the FBI discovers there are dangerous holes in the American safety net, despite the expenditure of billions of dollars in supposedly effective detection systems.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
“The best Pentagon correspondent ever (for the New York Times) has written the best book yet about a nuclear attack on the United States. And I mean best book, fiction or non-fiction.” Leslie H. Gelb, president emeritus, Council on Foreign Relations.
“Beecher knows Washington, and he knows its intelligence community. He also knows a lot about nuclear issues, including how threatened the US is because of the potential of rogue factions gaining access to nuclear weapons or the materials to make a ‘dirty bomb.’” James Roche, former Secretary of the Air Force
“Nuclear Revenge is a spell-binding book. I opened the cover and could not put it down. The story was so real I thought it was actually happening. This is a must read.” Jack W. Rowe, Nuclear Energy Institute
Nuclear Revenge, a suspense novel, is to date, my favorite, Beecher novel. This Pulitzer Prize winning author and former Washington correspondent for the Boston Globe, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times knows his subject, how to write and what to write. Beecher’s career spans 30+ years, with a portion of it spent as a top official in the Defense Department and Nuclear Regulatory Commission. This guy has been there, seen it all, and now he’s telling what he saw. I’m betting that a good bit of this book is based on real experience. Read the book.
This book has it all: suspense, intrigue and excitement. It’s so real you feel like you could be reading about current events in the newspaper. I loved how it all weaved together. I give this book a “nuclear” 5 stars!
