Will Ryan be rendered helpless bystanders as the USA remains under threat of nine more suitcase-sized nuclear weapons in the hands of the terrorists?
When ten suitcase-size nuclear weapons are stolen from the U.S. stockpile, the American President suspects terrorists are involved.
He also thinks U.S. rogue government agents are colluding with the terrorists.
Not knowing who to trust, he turns to his secret, hand-picked team to hunt down and catch the criminals.
On the team are former Special Forces commander John (J.T.) Ryan, FBI Assistant Director Erin Welch, and CIA agent Rachel West.
Suddenly, one of the nuclear devices is detonated in a rural area of Pennsylvania.
Although the explosion kills few people, it causes a massive Electronic Magnetic Pulse.
The EMP knocks out all data transmission for hundreds of miles – television, telephone, internet, cell phones, 911 communication, and electronic banking cease completely.
The information shutdown causes panic among the population in Philadelphia and nearby cities.
As Ryan and the team race against time to find the terrorists, the trail leads them to a sinister group of Russians.
Can Ryan, Erin, and Rachel stop the criminals before the U.S.’s nationwide communication system is destroyed and the country collapses into chaos?

Review by KB Schaller:
When ten suitcase-size nuclear weapons are hijacked from a truck transporting them from the U.S. government’s stockpile, one of the devices is detonated in rural Pennsylvania.
Fatalities are few. But the massive Electronic Magnetic Pulse it creates knocks out electronic banking, shuts down 911 communications, internet, telephone, television, and cell phones.
U.S. president Steve Harris suspects foreign enemy terrorists. But other questions gnaw at his brain: What do they want? And what if rogue government agents from his own country are colluding with them?
Harris calls in Special Forces commander John (J.T.) Ryan, the only person in whom he has the confidence to solve a case which, he learns, could also involve assassinations of two government employees by his own country’s government agents.
Can the savvy Ryan and his teammates, FBI Assistant Director Erin Welch—whose fiancé was one of the assassinated—and CIA agent Rachel West, out-think the nameless, faceless enemies who have not yet made a demand?
Or will Ryan and his team—for the first time—be rendered helpless bystanders as the USA remains under threat of nine more suitcase-sized nuclear weapons in the hands of the terrorists?
So, kick back, lovers of spy fiction, and enjoy Tripwire, the latest in award-winning author, Lee Gimenez’s, J.T. Ryan series!
