Synopsis

From the acclaimed thriller writer, Joe Weber, comes a chilling novel of the Cold War.

The United States and Soviet Union are at the brink of war. Fearful of US plans for an anti-missile defense system that could defeat a USSR first strike, the Soviet General Secretary, the conservative successor to Gorbachev, conceives a plan to act first.

Russian Bear bombers violate US airspace, leading to a response by American F-15s. A US Navy battle group is attacked in the North Atlantic. And in orbit, a Soviet hunter-killer satellite attacks an American space shuttle.

As the world careens towards a nuclear conflict, only a lone CIA operative stands between peace and utter destruction. But can he act in time?

Vividly portraying the real world of military hardware and combining it with page-turning action, DEFCON One is the definition of a classic thriller.

Defcon One was full of nail-biting suspense and the dialogues inside the aircraft and aboard the ships and submarines were realistic enough to make you feel you had hold of the joystick or periscope, or at the helm or swaying side to side in the control rooms. The world today seems to be one executive order away from total annihilation now that nuclear capability is in the hands of so many countries. A very exciting and entertaining book about a very realistic threat to mankind.
