Not a bad read, but not a great one either. Ollie should stick with reporting or selling arms to rebel forces. I do appreciate the effort to insert some good Christian principles by showing for once that many people actually pray to God for strength in times of danger. Some of our greatest military leaders were strong Christian men and depended on God for support and guidance through the worst times.
Oliver North follows his best-selling novel Mission Compromised with a suspenseful, action-packed sequel set in Israel and Iraq. Lt. Col. Peter Newman (USMC) and his family are threatened when his cover is blown. While preparing for a clandestine U.S. mission to find Iraqi nuclear weapons, Newmans wife Rachel is kidnapped in Jerusalemalong with her friend, the wife of an Israeli Sayeret counter-terrorism operative responsible for Israeli terrorist assassinations.
Newman has to choose whether to go ahead with the mission or abandon it to find and rescue his wife. But Israel has discovered that Iraq has nukes and plans a preemptive attack on Baghdad with Jericho missiles. If that happens, and Islamic terrorists like Saddam and bin Laden respond in kind, it might trigger a Middle East war that could go global. It seems as if nothing can prevent an Armageddon.
