Product Description

Product Description

In Under Attack David Alexander tells the story of the next phase of the continuing war against international terrorist forces.

As the book opens, the successors to Al Qaeda are planning a bold new series of terrorist strikes against high-priority military, civilian, government and commercial targets around the world.

Under Attack is not only an unforgettable page-turner ... it is also a warning of what might happen tomorrow if America grows careless again. David Alexander -- dubbed "the best damn action writer in the business" -- has a gift for extrapolating tomorrow's history from today's events.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST DAMN THRILLERS I'VE READ IN A LONG TIME Dec 14 2011
By Rod Kenzig - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Under Attack is easily one of the best damn thrillers I've read in a very long time. I know this for a fact because I do most of my reading in bunches or groups so it's easy to compare two or three thrillers virtually page for page. Few make me more than yawn. This one didn't. In fact it kept me from getting enough sleep since I stayed up past my bedtime to finish the chapters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Action Thriller. Can't Rate It Highly Enough. Jan. 10 2012
By Hart MacArthur - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Under Attack really hit home with some exceptionally fine writing combined with a powerful plot-line that had the net effect of stepping aboard a runaway train that had me hanging on until the ride was over.

The author not only had a wicked gift for the surprise plot twist (which were heaped on in this thriller by comparison with others, and what seems a considerable technical knowledge of conventional and unconventional weapons, but also got inside the heads of terrorists and revealed what made the sick minds who plot and carry out a large-scale, global series of coordinated strikes tick.

I also want to mention that while a central focus of Under Attack is an attack on the United States, the storyline is complex and interesting from the standpoint of its drawing together military and covert operations around the world that all tie together, so therefore Under Attack is truly a global action thriller that features plenty of technothriller hardware and special ops, which, needless to say, is all handled with exceptional skill.

To sum up: I find Under Attack a must-read for thriller buffs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Strong on This Thriller March 28 2012
By Big - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this terrorism-themed technothriller to be a true page-turner that never missed a cue. I thought it dealt exceptionally well regarding the frighteningly real threat of terrorism directed against the United States on the level of well-told thriller fiction, but also demonstrated an expert grasp of conventional and unconventional weapons and tactics. The story included White House and Pentagon intrigue that was handled deftly enough to give that "fly on the wall" perspective of events ... the multiple level plot had a global reach that showed a shrewd strategic hand, giving the book that pro quality that's the sign of a writer who knows his business. An entertaining read, with more than its share of slick tricks to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Knockout Attack. Great Job. Jan. 7 2012
By ancientwiseman123 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I first discovered David Alexander's Under Attack on a long flight as I looked over the shoulder of my seat mate who happened to be reading it on his Kindle. Feeling slightly guilty when I was caught reading, I told him that I'd read some other stuff by the author and I'd heard about this one. Well, we got to talking about thrillers, which it turned out we were both fans of, and as my new-found friend caught some sleep over the Atlantic I spent the next six hours really getting into this great action thriller. What can I say -- I'm impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Gripping Nov. 20 2012
By Joe Z. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The stunning conclusion was made possible by a powerful beginning that set off a domino chain of events that all fit together with the precision of a master watchmaker. The plot pulls us quickly through a series of startling events with the nation again under direct, violent attack. These do not stop until the final outcome and its surprise twist.

This was a fast, entertaining and exciting read that I found hard to put down.

I enjoyed it so much that I seriously plan to put other books he's written at the top of my reading list
