Next Summer, get ready for . . . Total Mayhem.
In early September, New York Times bestselling author John Gilstrap announced the title of his next Jonathan Grave thriller, along with the cover art, on his official Facebook page. At the time, all we knew about the plot was that it followed Scorpion Strike (2018), and would be coming out in mid-2019. Now, the official details are out, and Gilstrap’s fans are sure to flip with excitement after reading the synopsis below.
In bestselling author John Gilstrap’s ticking time bomb of a thriller, freelance operative Jonathan Grave penetrates a terrorist cell to stop the detonation of total mayhem on home ground . . .
America is under fire. One by one, simultaneous terror attacks have left the country reeling. The perpetrators are former Special Forces operatives working for ISIS. Jonathan Grave and his team are called to go undercover and eliminate the traitors. No need to collect intel. No need for arrest. Wipe them out—and get out.
The assaults are rehearsals for extreme disaster. A plot codenamed Retribution. One terrorist is willing to talk—for a price. Grave’s only resort is to slip into a dark web where everything can be exposed. Where the rules of engagement do not hold. The bombs have been set and Grave is the one being hunted. Unless he can save himself first, a terrorist plot of unimaginable scope will become history’s deadliest disaster . . .
