- Long Synopsis:
- Under the cover of a moonless night, al-Quaida operatives make their way inside the infamous Camp Delta prison on the American base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Their goal is to free five prisoners. But their attempt fails. The rescuers and prisoners, all former Iranian Navy submarine crewmen, are killed. Their freedom was to be the first step in unleashing a deadly act of terrorism-a mission code-named Allah's Scorpion. The CIA and Kirk McGarvey are called in, but first McGarvey must stop the destruction of the Panama Canal by a Venezuelan oil tanker rigged to explode in one of the locks. What seems to be an unrelated attack turns up with the same cryptic code name. But this mission may prove to be the ultimate strike against America, a grand finale to what began on 9/11. A pair of Russian nuclear-warhead missiles that were spirited into Libya just before the invasion of Iraq have turned up on the radar, and they are in transit by sea to an undisclosed launch site in the Atlantic Ocean. Once again, Kirk McGarvey is the only man in a position to stop them-the only man capable of knocking out Allah's Scorpion.

Reviewer: Bookshare.org Volunteer
Hagberg blows away Tom Clancy as far as military tactics. You can't put the book down, he creates the ultimate in excitement. He gets better with age, his plots are really believable, they make you feel like they could actually take place.
