Blackout by Jason Elam and Steve Yohn

The boys will soon be back in town with another Riley Covington thriller, and as Country singer Trace Adkins would say...they've got their game on! Packed with action and rich with detail, the writing team of Elam and Yohn have another hit on their hands.

This time Riley is still recovering from the sudden death of his father and the trauma of his last heroic exploit. His fame as 'Captain America' is wearing thin, and all Riley wants to do is play football with is beloved Mustangs.

Which explains his shock and dismay at the news that he's been traded. Why in the world would he be cut loose from his team and sent to another...who's pulling strings on Riley's future?

Answers come soon enough as he's whisked away from his Alaskan retreat to the action of Homeland Security in Washington D.C. There Riley reunites with Special Agent and Director Scott Ross, as well as Khadi, Tara, Gilley and the ever-present and effervescent Gooey.

Together the team attempts to thwart plans to unleash a terrorist threat of our worst nightmares: an EMP bomb. Electro magnetic pulse bombs that will knock out all of our infrastructure, down to watches, cell phones...up to planes and defense. This is the stuff of nightmares!

Will all of their expertise be enough to track this needle in a haystack attack? Who is behind it: China, Russia, North Korea, or Iran? And how is Riley going to find his way through this new tangle of issues, both professional and personal. His life makes Jake Bauer's seem like a walk in the park (not really...just like saying that...)!

Can they stop this horrendous attack, or will it truly be lights out for America? For the world as we know it? The worst of it is I can see this possibly happening...chilling thought.

Fast-pace writing ricochets off the page as the short chapters fly by. The intimate details of the behind-the-scenes of professional football add an extra layer of richness to the story. One chapter and you can tell Jason and Steve know their stuff.

This is a much anticipated January 2010 release from Tyndale, and my deep gratitude for my advance reader copy. Don't miss this heart-stopping adventure in the hottest thriller series to hit bookshelves! I can only imagine what this dynamic writing duo has up their literary sleeves next!

Happy Reading!
