Hard Target: A Novel
From the producer of 24, the exciting follow-up to Gideon’s War involves a harrowing attempt to stop a homegrown terrorist plot to destroy the U.S. government.
When FBI Agent Nancy Clement discovers evidence of an impending terrorist attack on U.S. soil, higher-ups at the Bureau are leery of her chief source: a meth-head informant affiliated with a white supremacist group. But Nancy follows her hunch and calls in Gideon Davis to evaluate her source. Like Nancy, Gideon becomes convinced that a serious plot exists, but the informant is murdered before either he or Nancy can get more details from him. So Gideon enlists his brother Tillman—newly sprung from prison through a presidential pardon obtained by Gideon—as an undercover operative to infiltrate a group of white supremacists who may be involved.
Eventually, Gideon and Tillman get on the trail of the real conspirators and uncover their audacious plan to eliminate the entire top tier of the U.S. government during the State of the Union Address. With only Nancy’s support, Gideon and Tillman go rogue to stop the powerful titan behind the conspiracy before the entire government is toppled.
With nonstop action and ticking time-bomb suspense, Hard Target will keep readers turning pages, and their hearts pumping fast.
