    Review by Amazon Customer:

    The Washington Ultimatum by Lee Giminez is a fast-paced suspense/thriller that catapults us into tomorrow’s headlines as terrorists up the ante by extorting nations with their WMD’s. We are introduced to J.T. Ryan, an ex-commando enlisted by the FBI to hunt down the mysterious Al-Shirak militant group and its mastermind, the Imam Rahim.

    Assistant Director Erin Welch lets him off the leash as he investigates bombings in Miami, Raleigh and Honolulu, traveling as far and wide as Berlin, Madrid and Jamaica to track down the perpetrators. It’s an exciting romp around the globe on the trail of shrewd and ruthless criminals, and Giminez puts the pedal to the metal as his tale sizzles from start to finish.

    Most of the works in the genre boils down to the conundrum facing our nation and the global community today. To what extent do we go in order to protect and defend our populations from the increasing threat of terror groups? We are introduced to insidious villains such as Angel Stone, Frank Reynolds and Dr. Heiler, the instigators of the attacks.

    Though none of them are sympathetic characters, we question Ryan’s tactics as he rips through baddies and stops at nothing to gain information. Bringing them to justice takes us to the end of the tunnel at Guantanamo Bay, and again we ask where justice ends and retribution begins. Are our modern-day Towers of London a harbinger of the future? The author allows you to be the judge.

    For action/adventure fans and current affairs enthusiasts, as well as mature audiences seeking a high-octane fiction ride, The Washington Ultimatum by Lee Giminez is worth your while.

    Review by KB Schaller:

    This is one novel that keeps the reader guessing. The chapters are short and crisp, and each one leaves the reader unable to put it down until s/he finds out what happens next.

    It is reflective of today’s headlines, and Lee Gimenez captures all the horrors of our powerful nation in the grip of attacks from terrorists who move like shadows among us.

    It is a wonderful example of its genre. If a story does not capture my interest after the first five or so pages, I seldom finish reading it. I gave the Washington Ultimatum 5 Stars because it delivered what it promised.
