Some boast of stories torn from today's headlines. David Alexander may justly boast of a thriller ripped from tomorrow's. That thriller is Under Attack II: Kill Chain.
David Alexander has penned a novel that's the next wave of riveting global action thrills and high-tech warfare.
Throughout the world and domestically, war again threatens America and sparks military retaliation. US forces meet the new challenges posed by a terrorist nation state with advanced technology and special warfare operations.
The nation's adversaries are planning a bold new series of terrorist strikes against high-priority military, civilian, government and commercial targets in the American homeland and around the world.
Yet there are a number of twists this time around. Many of these targets are unconventional focal points of attack, while the methods of attack themselves are totally unexpected, as are their intended consequences.
Kill Chain is a new page-turner by the most widely read thriller author in the US, UK, AU and Canada. It's full of surprises ... it is also a warning of what might happen tomorrow if America and its allies grow careless again. David Alexander -- dubbed "the best damn action writer in the business" -- has a gift for extrapolating tomorrow's history from today's events.
No Punches Pulled
Non-state armies are now in the Maghreb, straddling the Med and directly across Europe's southern tier where they have built growing desert havens. Flush with armaments bought with stolen oil revenues they are in a position to threaten NATO member nations.
A multilateral, combined arms assault on heavily defended strike points in the Maghreb is staged. Terrorists have already amputated the limbs and cut heads off prisoners. The raid is staged by an elite force, but it's badly botched. Hostages die in the course of hot extraction, choppers go down and many of the rescue force are killed. But this is not just about war, it's also about sales. Giant multinational defense contractors in the US and EU are closely watching the combat theater and corporate observers are studying the results.
The new defense secretary's first move is to cut programs he considers obsolete. As soon as he announces his intentions he's visited by key senators from affected states who swear to fight the cuts. The secdef's enemies conspire to set him up, beginning the first stage of a plot whose end result is to be the death of the US president and the occupation of the American republic.
Force Omega, the future soldier infantry brigade specially equipped and trained for multipurpose missions, is tasked with a range of global operations in support of the NATO mission. At squad and company levels, Omega can be deployed in any variety of roles and used as a rapid, mobile strike formation.
