Description

"A breathtaking, fascinating look at what could happen--given the possibility of an atomic 'given.' A wrap-up you'll never forget."--Robert Ludlum The countdown begins when welder Jack Hummel is abducted from his suburban Maryland home ans whisked to the South Mountain MX missile site--a top-secret nuclear complex now taken over by paramilitary terrorists. All that stands between the Uzi-armed commandos and the launch button is a half-ton titanium block. They want Jack Hummel to cut through it--so they can unleash a devastatingly brilliant plot that threatens global disaster. Now a Delta Force veteran and a think-tank defense wizard must get inside South Mountain--by defeating their own super-security systems and a darkly ingenious enemy leader . . . . . . while Jack Hummel's torch burns closer and closer to the launch key . . . while the clock ticks closer to midnight--and Armageddon. Praise for The Day Before Midnight "Rockets toward a shattering climax like an incoming missile."--Stephen Coonts, author of Flight of the Intruder and Final Flight "Nonstop action and mounting tension."--The New York Times Book Review "Slam-bang action and relentless suspense."--The Washington Post "The novel crackles and jolts."--Chicago Tribune "The one to beat this year in the nail-biter class . . . an edge-of-the-seat doomsday countdown thriller."--Daily News, New York
