Author: Dale Brown
In a top-0secret location deep in the Urala Mountains, Russian president Gennadiy Gryzlov has built the most dangerous weapon his nation has ever produced–a fearsome tool to gain superiority in Russia’s long-running battle with the West. From inside Perun’s Aeriean intricate network of underground tunnels and chambers that is the heart of the Russian cyber warfare program–Gryzlov is launching a carefully plotted series of attacks on an unsuspecting U.S. and its European allies.
The first strike is aimed at Warsaw, Poland, where Russian malware wipes out the records of nearly every Polish bank account, imploding the country’s financial system and panicking the rest of Europe. When the besieged U.S. president, Stacy Anne Barbeau, fails to effectively combat the Russian threat, Brad McLanahan, on some well-earned R&R with his new Polish girlfriend, Major Nadia Rozek, is called back to duty.
As the Russians” deadly tactics escalate–including full-scale assaults on Europe’s power grid and the remote hijacking of a commercial airliner that kills hundreds of civilians–Mclanahan and his Scion team kick into gear, arming themselves with the most advanced technological weaponry for the epic struggle ahead. A patriot in the mold of his father, the late general Patrick McLanahan, Brad knows fist-hand the price of freedom.
With the world’s fate hanging in the balance, will Scion succeed in turning back Gryzlov before he can realize his terrifying ambition to conquer the world? And what will the toll of victory be?
