Book Review: High Treason


High Treason, Sean McFate. William Marrow an Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers

In this fictional novel, you will be introduced to the third action thriller if you are already a fan of Brad Thor and David Baldacci, the hero Tom Locke, who work together to stop those who would overthrow the president.

On the way to the National Prayer Breakfast, and vice president’s motorcade is attacked by a carefully planned group whose purpose was to create chaos.  Was it ISIS? A young female FBI agent is confident that Russia is behind the attack.

Did a global security firm arrange the attack? Military contractor, Tom Locke, wonders if Apollo Outcomes is responsible. If so, why would a security firm do this? Information leaks abound.

Why did this happen? Who caused this attack? Could it be Islamic fundamentalist terrorists?  Was Putin seeking to discredit the U.S. government? Who would seek to discredit the U.S. government?

Locke is the only one who can peel the layers of the conspiracy onion that covers the entire globe and could strike before it is too late……Carol
