Originally published as a mass market paperback in 1999,
DECREE delivers a chilling preview of the tragic events of
September 11, 2001, and renders a scenario that is even more
plausible in the wake of security measures adopted since then. Its
plot reveals how terrorists might destroy key American targets
without resort to hijacking airliners.
In DECREE, Islamic extremists continue their campaign to
import terrorism to the United States. This time their target is
Denver International, the crown jewel of American airports.
Forewarned of the attack, airport authorities face a dilemma:
should they close the airport in response to a credible threat,
thereby setting a dangerous precedent, or defy the terrorists by
keeping it open? Will even the most sophisticated security
measures at their disposal protect DIA from obliteration?
DECREE goes much deeper than other novels of its genre to
illustrate how Islamic extremists twist the teachings of their
religion to suit their own evil purposes. It provides a unique
insight into the minds and motives of America's most fervent,
and perhaps most dangerous, enemies.
Nail-biting action, political intrigue and a powerful love
story—they're all here.
