Holy Terror

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, Apr 24, 2007 - Fiction - 405 pages
Visiting a NATO conference in Rome, Rogue Warrior Demo Dick gives a speech about Europe's vulnerabilities and the need to get serious about terrorism, ending with an impromptu demonstration, as he unmasks a plot to kill the conferees seconds before it begins. The former SEAL commander is then shanghaied to Sicily to help investigate the attempted theft of nukes from a U.S. base. Is the Mafia involved? Or is this the work of Saladin, a shadowy extremist trying to step into bin Laden's shoes? A high body count lends credence to both theories, but before Demo Dick can untangle the plot, his firm is hired to track down "shrinkage" in a courier operation in Asia, involving data and currency worth hundreds of millions of dollars. But he soon discovers the job is a trap to keep him from getting back to Rome in time to save the city from destruction.--From publisher description.
