Truth about today's world mixed with a well-told story. A great way to learn the chilling facts about radical Islam.

Gripping, but not 007 kind of story. The plot in this book can really happen, and you sometimes wonder how much is fiction and how much history rewritten.

Get ready for Major Brooke Grant’s next adventure, filled with action and adrenaline. When Brooke Grant’s Washington, DC wedding is attacked by a terrorist, Brooke and her daughter escape the explosion by a stroke of luck. The casualties include the president, and Brooke is soon drawn into hunting the terrorist who took her life’s love from her, along with many family and friends. The newly-sworn-in president establishes a covert CIA task force, and Brooke teams up with a Saudi intelligence officer and an Israeli Mossad agent as they go on the hunt for the terrorist known as the Falcon, a man determined to destroy the USA and establish a caliphate. With plenty of backroom political intrigue and undercover exploits, Vengeance speeds along on a wild thriller ride that won’t disappoint Brooke Grant fans in this third installment of the series.

Sometimes when you finish a book and lay it down, it can be hard to imagine that it is simply all a story. That it hasn't happened. But also that it could very well happen just as it is laid out in the book you just read. Vengeance by Newt Gingrich is a chilling political suspense novel that once more pits Major Brook Grant against her nemesis known only as the Falcon. He has sworn a death threat against those she loves before he targets his attacks directly on her. While an unknown terrorist breaks through barricades at her wedding, she didn't realize that the President would make a last minute appearance. Even though all attempts to stop the rental truck from drawing too near to the event, Oklahoma would be remembered after this deadly explosion that would claim the lives of more than 300 people and barely leave Brooke alive with only her daughter as the last remaining family she had left. Now that the President has been killed, the Vice President moves into the Oval Office and he isn't going to take any chances now that a nuclear device has been bought on the black market and known terrorist groups like the Falcon are planning on making America pay for all the retribution and Muslim lives that have been lost while trying to turn America away from being the once great nation it claims to be. The Vice President is about to use some unorthodox methods of catching the Falcon and locating the nuclear device and now it is time for vengeance to rise to the top. He doesn't want them brought back alive, he wants all of them dead and the device recovered before it can be used against American's. Brooke is just the right candidate for the team known only as KTB or Kill the Bast**d. She just isn't prepared to work with agents from other countries that have their own reasons for wanting the Falcon dead including an Israeli Mossad agent and a Saudi intelligence officer and this time all bets are off. There is nothing keeping this team from accomplishing what needs to be done and with full authorization from the White House, Brooke is about to take the game to the Falcon's playing field and this time the game is about to change. I received Vengeance by Newt Gingrich compliments of Center Street Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Groups. This is a chilling look at what could quite possibly be going on in the dark shadows in our own country with countless groups looking to take down our political leaders and turn this county into one of great fear and submission. Yet like all good novels, our goodness rises to the top and for Brooke, it will be a duality of sorts, coming to terms with her own personal vengeance and saving the country she has vowed to serve so valiantly even if it costs her everything. She truly has nothing more to lose and the action never lets up until the last page. This is what draws me to novels like this, a true adrenaline rush and an unforgettable roller coaster ride of emotions. Another 5 out of 5 stars in this reader's opinion. This is the third novel in the Brooke Grant Series.

Wow, I loved this book. This is a very fast paced political thriller that I couldn't put down - it kept me up late into the night until I finished it. I loved the characters, especially Brooke, who is a talented woman and Major in the Marines. She took a different path from her family and made her own way, but that put her in the cross hairs of Muslim extremists and has them actively trying to kill her. Because of this, she is thrown into a variety of dangerous situations and forced to partner with people she would normally rather see criminally prosecuted for their actions. However, as the proverb states, sometimes "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." This leads to Brooke having to face difficult moral challenges and decisions on how to preserve her humanity while making those choices. This the third book in the Brooke Grant series, but is a stand alone novel, however, the series is so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all. This is a must read for fans of the genre. The authors are on my must read authors' list.
