And Into the Fire
Robert Gleason’s thriller And Into the Fire tells about the very real possibility of a nuclear holocaust. In Gleason’s book, the Saudi ambassador to the United States has a sinister plan to steal nuclear warheads and detonate them over several American cities to cause destruction and destabilize the oil market, sending oil prices skyward. To achieve his evil objective, he partners with ISIS, Pakistani intelligence, Pakistan’s terrorist group, Tehrik-e-Taiba Pakistan, as well as a former US Marine with bipolar disorder and a grudge against the United States. Now two brave women–Jules Meredith, a journalist, and Elena Moreno, the head of the CIA’s Pakistan desk–along with the hacker and former Marine David Jameson must do whatever they can in order to defeat the terrorists and save their country.
And Into the Fire features two very strong female protagonists, something you don’t see very often in male-authored thrillers. Both women are extremely courageous and willing to put their lives on the line for their country. The characters in the book are lively and fascinating, and many have their own backstory. The book’s plot is extremely fluid and fast-paced, with tons of action. Also, considering that the author is an expert on nuclear terrorism, the plot is highly plausible.
