Summary

Rooted in the history of the Middle East, this political action thriller is set in contemporary Washington DC and Virginia, when terrorism explodes on American shores. Ibrahim Al-Bari is a highly skilled Hamas commander who has battled and killed Americans throughout Iraq and Afghanistan. After losing two brothers and a sister in a bloody attack on a civilian bus in Israel, Al-Bari decides that fighting US surrogates in far-away places is a futile waste of Palestinian blood. "To kill a snake, you must go to its lair and cut off its head," he says, as he decides to take his war private and strike at the heart of the American government itself. No simple man with a rifle in a book depository window; when Al-Bari strikes, he will unleash an old weapon that will take out the President and many other national and international leaders in a dramatic, fiery attack on national television. In this fast-paced murder mystery, trying to find him and stop him, is Eddie Rankin, a maverick FBI agent, who has never met a rule he couldn't break; Moustapha 'Mouse' Khalidi, the smooth, urbane Chief of Security at the Egyptian Embassy in Washington; and Rachel Ullman, a hard-edged, female Israeli Mossad agent, counter-terror specialist, and killer, who lost her own family to a suicide bomber. The question is, with their personal frictions and contradictory orders, can this temporary, dysfunctional alliance hold together long enough to catch Al-Bari before they kill each other - and the clock is ticking.

Excellent!

I suppose I'm biased, because the author is my father, but I really like this book. In fact, it's my favorite. This book is a rewrite of his first novel, and what stands out to me is the plot. He had a very specific idea (a terrorist attack in Yorktown, Virginia), and I think the book works well because the idea is a good one: plausible and rather original. You should totally buy this book for you and all of your friends!

Excellent political thriller!

William F Brown has crafted an excellent political action thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until that final word is spoken or read. Along with the foundational element of a terrorist attack, this story calls into question who the bad guys are. I love how Mr. Brown creates characters who are not only believable, and likable, but very normal. In this case Eddie Rankin feels like he could have come out of today’s newspapers. Eddie Frierson’s narration brings each character to life as well as keeping the action of this story at a level that keeps the listener on the firmly planted on the proverbial rollercoaster ride.

Great action thriller

intriguing storyline, memorable sand enjoyable characters...Mr. Friedman's performance was spectacular - I was certain that the narration was permormed by a dozen or so separate character actors.

Excitement and chuckles

Here's another action-packed thriller from William F. Brown with likable characters you care about. The diplomatic international plot makes it scarily relevant, but the chuckles keep you sane.

Excellent Novel and Audiobook!

This was my first William Brown novel and I was very impressed. So much thought went in to the details and combined with Eddie Frierson's narration, Aim True, My Brothers kept my attention throughout. The twists and turns in every situation kept me guessing at what would come next. Don't miss this one.
