"Tata writes with a gripping and gritty authority." --Richard North Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Bristling with suspense, action, and thrilling authenticity, the novels of Brigadier General A.J. Tata have earned the praise and respect of President George W. Bush, Glenn Beck, and the bestselling masters of international intrigue. In Three Minutes to Midnight, he delivers a terrifyingly plausible scenario ripped from the headlines--and the ultimate test for his hero, Jake Mohegan...

It begins with the kidnapping of an Army Reserve officer on U.S. soil. Name: Captain Maeve Cassidy. Profession: Geologist specializing in natural gas drilling and fracturing. Mission: classified. Abducted less than twenty-four hours upon her return from Afghanistan, Cassidy's disappearance from a Fort Bragg compound is more than a security breach. It is the first stage of a large-scale domestic attack that few Americans could imagine--or survive...

Enter Delta Force veteran Jake Mahegan. The seasoned operative is on a personal mission of vengeance, tracking down his mother's killer at a drilling site in North Carolina. When he's assigned the task of locating the geologist, he can't help but wonder if her abduction is connected to the fracking magnate he's pursuing. But when a nearby nuclear plant is attacked, and then another, in a matter of days, Mahegan knows it's no coincidence. It is a brilliantly conceived, ruthlessly orchestrated assault on our homeland that no intelligence analyst could ever foresee--or stop...

When a third nuclear plant is targeted, Mahegan has no choice but to try. If he fails, our nation falls. The countdown is launched. The clock is ticking. Armageddon begins... Three Minutes to Midnight.
