Publisher's Summary

"Retribution proves that the scariest story is the true story. Here's the real intelligence operation." —Brad Meltzer

A shattering debut thriller in which an unstoppable force of destruction is about to strike at the heart of America.

The remote and impenetrable Pakistani mountains have offered refuge to the worst enemies of civilization since the time of Alexander. Now, the world faces a new challenge. Reared from birth to harbor a seething hatred, a lone man is about to unleash a firestorm that will rage for centuries. And the window of opportunity to stop him is shutting much faster than Washington D.C. can hope to deal with.

A top lethal operative, Will Parker is embedded within the terrorist's ranks to stop this catastrophic disaster. But with a nuclear core on its way to the U.S., Parker will go to any lengths to stop a biological terror more lethal than anything the USA—and the world—has ever faced.

Retribution—a dire warning of what our future may hold…and our end.

Any additional comments?

I was very disappointed in the resolution or comeuppance of one of the antagonists of the book. I felt very shortchanged in the weak subplot involving this character and moreover with the resolution of the character's actions of the subplot. It left me feeling unsatisfied. This character was one of the main antagonists and was mentioned throughout the book, but we never really were given a chance to form a strong opinion of this character and his inclusion in the book was ultimately unnecessary.

This is not a page turner. It took 1/2 the book before it became interesting. The characters are ok, the plot was ok but did have something new. There was very little action and came at the end of the book. It is ok not to have loads of action if there is suspense or intrigue but there was very little of this as well. Overall the book was flat. . The narrator did an adequate job but didn't seem to have much range for different voices. This was sorta ok since the story isn't in first person and there wasn't much dialogue. There were a few glitches in the production. Simply the story doesn't move along and lacks polish.
