Tom Clancy's Op-Center: Scorched Earth by George Galdorisi is a gripping thriller about an Islamic extremist who is on a quest for vengeance after his only son is killed, and it’s up to Op-Center to stop his lethal plot.
General Bob Underwood—a special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL—is en route to the Syrian city of al-Bukamal when a rocket-propelled grenade strikes the side of his Humvee, and the heavily armored convoy comes under attack. The general's bodyguard is brutally murdered, and Underwood himself is kidnapped. Hours later the president and top officials watch in horror from the Oval Office as the general is viciously beheaded by an ISIL leader—broadcast on live television through a direct feed from Al Jazeera.
The world is stunned by the bloody scene but even more so that this supposedly loose-knit terrorist organization was able to orchestrate a lethal attack on the world's most powerful military. American forces go into high gear on land and sea to retaliate, but when the ISIL leader's son is killed in an American bombing raid, his rage knows no bounds, and he determines to wreak vengeance on the American homeland itself.
With everything in the balance, Op-Center must assemble both its domestic strike force as well as its international intervention force—built around a seasoned squad operating out of the secretive unit that captured Osama bin Laden—to stay one step ahead of a ruthless enemy.
The latest installment of the Op-Center series weaves a heart-pounding story of American honor, and narrator Peter Berkrot ensures that you can’t get a more thrilling listen than Scorched Earth. Start listening now!
