From the back cover: If a grief-blinded cop can’t find the man who murdered her husband, millions of people will die in a doomsday attack on the United States.
The Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico washes a cache of doomsday weapons onto a Mexican beach: bombs filled with VX nerve gas mixed with anthrax, invented by the Nazis during World War II and perfected by the United States to use in the Cold War. The bombs soon fall into the wrong hands and create an unstoppable opponent. Only one Chicago Police detective has a chance of preventing those bombs from being used on American soil.
Reeling from the recent murder of her husband as well as allegations of police misconduct, Detective Superstition “Sue” Davis is thrown into an undercover assignment. She must infiltrate the Mexican narcotics cartel responsible for the death of her husband in order to get close to the cartel’s sociopathic enforcer, Jiménez “Jimmy” Garcia.
But when the entire Garcia family is killed in Mexico by a U.S. Special Forces raid gone wrong, Garcia will stop at nothing to get vengeance, including triggering newly acquired bombs on American soil. Superstition’s assignment quickly becomes more dangerous than planned as the threat of a terrorist attack looms closer.
“Sue” is given an undercover assignment to infiltrate the Mexican narcotics cartel that caused her husband’s death. Jimmy Garcia is the leader and he is a sociopath. On top of this he also has a hidden cache of doomsday weapons: bombs filled with VX nerve gas mixed with anthrax, invented by the Nazis during World War II. Guess what he wants to use in retaliation for the U.S. Special Forces raid that killed his family? Let me put it this way if you are looking for a very exciting read that will keep you guessing as to what will happen next then look no further you have found it. “The Fury” hits the ground running and does not let you go. Get yourself a soda, make a big bowl of popcorn and settle in as this book is going to have you reading just as fast as you can trying to keep up with what happens next.
