Gauntlet by Richard Aaron

From the book jacket:

"A terrorist threat is looming: an attack that would dwarf any other. This time, the government knows it's coming, but doesn't know where, or how."

For someone who enjoys a good thriller, this is definitely the book for him or her. Richard Aaron delivers a story of intrigue that brings into play all the forces and techniques of the world today.

This isn't sci-fi by any means. "Gauntlet" is a modern-day story that could actually happen, bringing the world as we know it to its knees.

With interesting characters and a descriptive storyline, this is a book that pulls the reader into the plot right away.

This isn't an easy book to read, however. You do have to think. But don't think too hard or you could have nightmares every time you turn on the news.

"Gauntlet" is about as close to reality as you can get.

Oh, I just know you'll like it. Just be sure to set aside the time to read it as it's not a fast book.

I try to avoid the news as is. Sounds like a good book, though.
