The Inheritor

Tom Wither. Turner (, $18.95 trade paper (348p) ISBN 978-1-62045-495-4
Wither's debut novel and first in a series creates a chilling world in which mass-scale terrorism and dangerous military operations are the norm. The year is 2025, and the United States is facing a series of unrelenting and devastating attacks engineered by Osama bin Laden's personally chosen successor, Aziz Abdul Muhammad. In response, top NSA official David Cain, Tech. Sgt. Emily Thompson, and newly minted FBI agent Dave Johnson form an unlikely team of heroes out to save the western world from an unfathomable assault on its energy supplies and safety. The action takes the reader from top-secret government offices in Washington, D.C., to the modern-day battlefields of the Middle East, with stops along the way in Chicago, Guantanamo Bay, and elsewhere. Although intensely focused on the minutiae of military and government protocol, the narrative provides plenty of mind numbing twists and turns along the way. Military buffs and fans of high-stakes action thrillers will find a lot to like. (June)
