Summary

THE MURDER

It spite of the tightest high-tech security ever conceived, billionaire Jordan Lime is savagely killed by a weapon that tears him apart limb by limb with grim, laserlike efficiency.

THE CONSPIRACY

An army unlike any other has fired its first shot. In its ranks are the world's most vicious killers, fortified by a super-advanced arsenal against which there is no defense.

THE THREAT

It is a madman's plan to conquer the earth by destroying it. He will unleash the devastating powers of the atom and let the cataclysmic wrath of nature do the rest.

THE STRUGGLE

Battle lines are drawn. Against the ultimate tyranny stands freedom's forces - led by Jared Kimberlain, the one the world turns to when it's in trouble - prepared to match evil shock for shock, blow for blow.

THE EIGHTH TRUMPET

From New York to Washington, D.C., from London to the Mediterranean island of Malta, and on to the frozen wastes of Antarctica, the demented plot unfolds. It will reach its terrifying climax on a day set aside for celebration - a day that may mark the end of humankind....

couldn't stop listening.

what a tale of heroes and villains. Revenge and solace, payback and retribution. Remarkable characters well portrayed Hardly any twists but relentless action keeps the listener riveted.

Why isn't this guy more famous

I found Jon Land in the audible included. After listening to a couple of his books I'm hooked. On the level with the Gray Man and Jack Reacher.

Ruined by narrater

Absolutely horrible narration. Something you would expect while reading fairy tales to your grandchildren at bedtime. Not sure how narrators are screened but someone dropped the ball on this one.

Interesting story.

Tough going in the beginning. Narrator tended to talk in a monotone so not as fun to listen to as some others. Kind of got used to him so did finish.

Confused

I will give the benefit of doubt to the author much more intelligent than me. Had a difficult time following multiple characters with multiple names. Plot felt unnecessarily complicated. Remember though one man’s water is another man’s wine.

Great concept

Land wrote good book 30 yrs ago - amazing how the political & global issues were same back then. For readers today there is way too much narrative and I sometimes just wanted him to get to the point. still a good read tho
