The unthinkable is about to happen in this tour de force of high-flying adventure
Dale Brown is the author of fourteen New York Times bestsellers, and now in Plan of Attack he provocatively turns our attention back to the threat of a nuclear attack that is beyond our imaginings.
U.S. Air Force aerial warfare expert Major General Patrick McLanahan has been demoted and moved back to a desk job. But while keeping a keen eye on what's going on with old enemies, he notices that Russia's heavy bomber and tactical bomber bases are busier than ever. McLanahan tries to get his superiors to pay attention and is ignored.
Russian president General Anatoliy Gryzlov is determined to punish McLanahan and his fleet of robotic warplanes for a previous bombing of a Russian air base. To make his point, Gryzlov launches an all-out sneak attack on America -- unlike anything ever believed possible -- that devastates U.S. strategic air forces.
McLanahan has collected information that not only foretold the Russians' daring plan, but also gives him the data he needs to plan a counterstrike that could stop the Russian war machine dead in its tracks. But McLanahan is no longer in charge of Air Battle Force, his combat unit of the future, and the Russian sneak attack has left the embattled U.S. president with few options: retaliate with every weapon in his arsenal, even if it triggers a global thermonuclear war, agree to a cease-fire on Russia's terms ... or listen to a disgraced and discredited young bomber commander's long-shot plan of attack. To prevent a destructive stalemate, McLanahan may have to take matters into his own hands.

Air Force Major General Patrick McLanahan has been demoted to a desk job, but it's still a vantage point from which he can see the sudden activity at Russian bomber bases. As listeners might expect, he's the only one who can anticipate a sneak attack on American soil and--when his superiors ignore his warning--the only one who can effectively end the threat. J.K. Simmons's pulse-pounding reading puts an emphasis on action, making tense exchanges in American and Russian war rooms sound as gripping as battles. Most of his character voices are standard-issue action-novel gruff, but his subtly menacing Russian president stands out in this nightmare view of diplomacy.
