CIA agent Kirk McGarvey faces the toughest challenge of his career when Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden obtains a nuclear demolition bomb and McGarvey must find out where, when, and how it will be detonated

Blackwell North Amer
When a one-kiloton Russian nuclear demolitions bomb the size of a suitcase goes missing from a military depot near the Afghanistan border, everyone in the West sits up and takes notice.
When the CIA discovers that Saudi multimillionaire Osama bin Laden purchased the bomb, code named Joshua's Hammer, for five million dollars with the intention of using it in the ultimate attack against the United States, Deputy Director Kirk McGarvey faces the most difficult and deadly challenge of his career.
Against his advice, the White House orders a cruise missile raid on bin Laden's base of operations in the mountains of Afghanistan. Instead of killing the terrorist, however, the missiles kill the light of his life - his nineteen-year-old daughter.
The nuclear weapon is being smuggled into the United States. Discovering how the bomb will get here, where it will be detonated, and when this, the worst terrorist attack in the history of the United States, will take place becomes the greatest struggle in the history of U.S. intelligence.
But McGarvey not only has to stop the bomb, he must protect his own daughter, Elizabeth, and the president of the United States's daughter from a savage act of retaliation by a man gone mad.
