America's Most Deadly Enemy is still loose . . . and he's ready to move.Following his dead mentor's desire to re-establish the Islamic Caliphate, Aziz Abdul Muhammad, hand-picked by bin Laden himself, masterminds a series of attacks on the U.S. energy infrastructure that will reignite the war against the West. As his initial series of attacks creates mass panic, leaving the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states in terrified darkness, the manhunt is on.
In a unique special operations force, veteran intelligence officer David Cain, along with Air Force Sergeant Emily Thompson and rookie FBI Agent Dave Johnson, leads the U.S. effort to find Aziz and his operations expert. From Camp Delta in Guantanamo Bay to Chicago and the outskirts of Tehran, the force must halt Al Qaeda's attempt to rise from the ashes of its former self--and stop The Inheritor before the rest of his terrifying plan unfolds.

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)
