"A plane bound for Amman, Jordan goes down in the Caspian Sea. The crash yields no survivors--save the Russian mercenary who hijacked the flight--and a cask containing an agent of unprecedented destructive potential is missing from the wreckage. A carefully plotted terrorist attack has been put into motion, and the resulting chaos might be enough to push America toward another costly war. The one man who might be able to stop the attack is Jack Hatfield, a freelance reporter who has never shied away from controversy. After making a politically incorrect statement about Islamic extremists, he has been discredited as a journalist and left to pick up the pieces of his career. But when his half-brother Sammy calls him, saying that his neighbor Ana overheardsomething she shouldn't have and now both their lives are in danger, Jack realizes he's stumbled upon a conspiracy to destroy Mecca. Now he, and a group of likeminded friends on the fringes of the law, must uncover who is behind the plot and stop them--or else witness the collapse of the world into a war of mutually assured global destruction. Michael Savage's COUNTDOWN TO MECCA is a gripping page-turner that takes readers on a journey where even the seemingly innocent aren't always innocent, the loyal aren't always loyal, and that even those counted on to serve their country, cannot always be counted on to protect it. With the threat of a third world war looming, Jack Hatfield must stop the destruction... before somebody can stop him"--

McMillan Palgrave

From the New York Times bestselling author and popular radio talk-show host Michael Savage comes Countdown to Mecca, a powerful thriller about a rogue journalist about to expose a huge conspiracy—that is, if he can make it out alive.

A plane bound for Jordan goes down in the Caspian Sea. The only survivor: the Russian mercenary who hijacked the flight. Missing from the wreckage: a cask containing an agent of unprecedented destructive potential...Now that a carefully plotted terrorist attack is officially in motion, America is on the brink of war. But there’s one man who might be able to put a stop to it.

Journalist Jack Hatfield has been picking up the pieces of his career ever since making an inflammatory statement about Islamic extremists. But when, from out of nowhere, he gets a tip about a dangerous conspiracy to destroy Mecca, Jack finds himself in mortal danger. Now it’s up to him and his ragtag friends on the fringes of the law—a prostitute, a clown, and a Jewish gangster among them—to put a stop to the devastating plot and face down a ruthless enemy and …or witness the collapse of the world as we know it.

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

A good book to read not for well written spy story but for coming to grips with Islam

for me, there were just too many convenient coincidents to propel the plot forward. A trolley car coming along to knock the gun from the hand of a bad guy is one example. I put it down after about 100 pages. Can't recomend!
