Synopsis

Could a group of terrorists launch an attack that would destroy California? Yes, they could. And they once almost did. Set at the height of the Cold War, The Unsung Patriots is historical fiction at its best—a tale of terror and intrigue with chilling implications for our times.Based on the author’s own experience, the book tells the story of Tad Lundgren, a Caltech PhD student who uncovers strange drilling activities near the San Andreas Fault. In conference with one of his fellow students and a senior advisor, Lundgren discovers a plot by the Russians to knock out America’s strategic missile defense system and lay the nation open to a full-scale nuclear attack. Working with high-ranking security agents from the United States and the U.S.S.R., the Caltech students survive a deadly confrontation and defuse the situation, only to be unwittingly recruited into the upper echelons of the American intelligence community.Told with riveting attention to scientific detail, The Unsung Patriots serves as a warning to all Americans. To ignore this piece of history is to risk a terrorist attack more devastating than any we have ever known.
