Brad McLanahan and the Iron Wolf Squadron have joined forces with the newly formed Alliance of Free Nations in Eastern Europe, to prepare for the attack they know is imminent. Working with the most cutting-edge technology, the team will deploy CIDs--Cybernetic Infantry Devices--twelve-foot-tall humanoid combat robots, each armed with more firepower than a conventional platoon.

Dealing with an unprecedented danger and a feckless president and congress, McLanahan and the Iron Wolf Squadron will once again put their own lives on the line to check this new Russian peril and keep the home of the brave and the free world safe"--

Review by Booklist Reviews

Brown continues the Patrick and Brad McLanahan saga with this latest high-stakes, high-tech thriller that invokes the current political situation between Russia and the U.S. The naive U.S. president has underestimated the Russian threat, leaving the country vulnerable to a bold Russian scheme involving transporting combat robots to American shores. The plan is to use the robots to assassinate a presidential candidate and disrupt the upcoming election. Brown has long been a master at high-tech thrillers, and, while the characters he creates to handle the military gear sometimes feel as if they were pulled from a soap opera, there is no denying that he knows his stuff. It also helps that, even with a long-running series, he continues to find ways to keep the action lively and relevant. For the Tom Clancy crowd, Brown remains the go-to guy.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

In bestseller Brown's rousing sequel to 2017's Price of Duty, Capt. Brad McLanahan, Col. Wayne "Whack" Macomber, and Maj. Nadia Rozek of the Iron Wolf Squadron, who pilot cybernetic infantry devices, 12-foot-tall combat robots with "more firepower than a conventionally equipped infantry platoon," face a new threat from Russia. President Gennadiy Gryzlov has succeeded in reverse-engineering his own cybernetic war machines from CIDs destroyed in the previous book. Gryzlov brings the fight to American soil with a spectacular attack on Louisiana's Barksdale Air Force base, where incompetent President Stacy Anne Barbeau has gathered a display of American firepower to kick off her re-election campaign. The stakes rise as the Iron Wolf Squadron strikes back and the Russian dictator orders a retaliatory political assassination. The action builds to an exciting climactic battle between the Russian CWMs and Iron Wolf CIDs at the ranch of Texas governor and presidential candidate John D. Farrell. Brown shows once again why he stands out in the crowded military thriller genre. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (June) Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly.
