9780060753085: Edge of Battle

Jason Richter and Task Force TALON return in the pulse-pounding follow-up to ‘Act of War.’

Violence has erupted on the border between the United States and Mexico, caused by rival drug lords.

Major Jason Richter along with the members of Task Force TALON set up a base in Southern California called Operation Rampart, with the aim of crushing the unrest. But their presence causes controversy, and suddenly events begin to take a very menacing turn.

Ernesto Fuerza, nicknamed Commander Veracruz has reinvented himself as a Mexican freedom fighter and is intent on causing mayhem by declaring the treaty that gave the Northern-most Mexican states to the US, illegal. However, his motives are far from honourable and hide a sinister plot to flood the US with drugs.

Re-assigned to the FBI to investigate the murders of several border patrolmen in Southern California, Task Force TALON uncovers Fuerza's real intentions. As Richter and his team are coaxed across the border into Mexico, tension between the two countries explodes into violence and an all out guerrilla warfare threatens to destroy the very fabric of the USA.

Only Richter and his seasoned gang of professionals can stop the carnage. But is it already too late?

Review:

‘Clancy’s got serious company.’
New York Daily News

‘When a former pilot with years of experience turns his hand to writing thrillers you can take their authenticity for granted. His writing is exceptional and the dialogue, plots and characters are first-class…far too good to be missed.’
Sunday Mirror

‘Brown puts us into the cockpits of wonderful machines and gives us quite a ride. His flying sequences are terrific…authentic and gripping.’
New York Times Book Review

‘The best military adventure writer in the country.’
Clive Cussler
