Without Mercy

David Hunt and R.J. Piniero. Forge, $27.99 (496p) ISBN 978-0-7653-8260-3
This unrelenting thriller from Fox News commentator Hunt and Piniero (The Fall), their first collaboration, offers constant action, sympathetic heroes, believable evildoers, and absolute authenticity on every page. Shortly after ISIS sets off an atomic device at Bagram Airfield, the largest U.S. military base in Afghanistan, terrorists drive a massive oil tanker into the tip of Manhattan and detonate a second nuclear device. The American president, Laura Vaccaro, sets up a secret action team to hunt down the perpetrators. The stakes escalate when CIA officer Bill Gorman informs Vaccaro that there’s another bomb headed toward the U.S. A number of exciting subplots raise the suspense. What’s particularly refreshing is the authors’ willingness to give readers a vivid picture of brave men and women attempting to stop destruction, without shying away from relating what happens when they fail. Agent: Matthew Bialer, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Mar.)
