UNDER SIEGE captures a chilling nightmare scenario, one that has already devastated Colombia and sent shock waves around the world. In a novel as immediate and gripping as tomorrow's headlines, the war against the drug lords is exploding within the borders of the United States-striking at the very center of the Merican government.

When the kingpin of the Medellin drug cartel is extradited to Washington DC to start trial, President George Bush is severely wounded by a hired assassin. Vice President Dan Quayle assumes the responsiblity for directing the fight against a criminal army that now rules the streets.

Captain Jake Grafton, working for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the battle to regain control of our nation's capital, faces the dual threat of a determined assassin and an equally determined vicious drug lord-both intent on plunging the United States into chaos.

Filled with a cast of vivid, compellling characters, and charged with the drama of the US military's most deadly challenge by an enemy on our own soil, UNDER SIEGE is vintage Stephen Coonts and will resonate long in our imaginations.
