Countdown to Terror(2001)
(Book 53 in the Stony Man series)
A novel by Don Pendleton (Timothy Somheil)
Stony Man is the secret power arm of the Oval Office, an organization of crack commandos and cybernetic watchdogs who intervene when extraordinary crises occur. Ethical and determined, they safeguard America with hard force and extreme measures. Now, a new president orders a covert strike against a global terrorist attack - a mission that may dictate the fate of Stony Man itself.
Terrorists from war-torn Kurdistan are poised to unleash an agenda of global violence that is nothing short of mass murder. Well trained and highly motivated, they have attacked top military bases and raided caches of Patriot missiles. The Stony Man teams are deployed to locate the weapons, and shake out the terrorists. But a threat of this magnitude will not be eliminated quietly, putting the agency on the fine line between removing the threat, and being exposed to the nation it serves in secrecy.
