In The ISIS Gambit by Brad Carlson, Hezbollah launches an attack on Washington, Boston, and New York from Russian-owned cargo ships. The US President finds himself drawn into another conflict and sends out Special Forces to deal with what they believe to be a minor threat. When the US attacks ISIS-held territory, they begin their own form of retaliation, capturing Israeli pilots and promising to make an example of them. The White House believes ISIS just intends to claim more territory in the Middle East, but they could not be more mistaken. ISIS is growing in strength and capability and has a much bigger ambition. The events that follow uncover a sinister and deadly plan that threatens thousands of lives and will make 9/11 look like a minor terrorist attack. The story will take you deep inside the White House, Kremlin and ISIS camps as US Special Forces use every skill they have to bring ISIS to its knees.
The ISIS Gambit by Brad Carlson is a fast-moving and thought-provoking read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The characters are really well developed and each has a unique, realistic personality. There is so much detail, especially in the battle scenes, and the research is clearly evident in the narrative and authentic dialogue. The author definitely knows how to create great tension and suspense to engage the reader. I loved how the author included perspectives from the White House, Special Forces, and ISIS as well as the Kremlin. It really gave the story more depth and interest. The conflicts in the plot were brilliant and just made you even more appreciative of the risks the armed forces take. The ending was good too and I feel there is more to come in this series of novels.
