Book Description


See all titles by Dale Brown.

The United States has just launched the most powerful weapon in history -- a missile-launching satellite called "Thor's Hammer" that can strike anywhere on the planet in seconds. The world's other major superpowers, Russia and China, are rocked by America's development, and they scramble to respond by gaining control of the seas.

But when terrorists hijack Pakistani missiles and fire them at Indian cities, U.S. President Joseph Gardner has only one option -- to use the untested Thor's Hammer. But when something goes awry, Pakistan decides to give China naval strategic advantage by granting access to Middle Eastern ports.

To make matters worse, Somali pirates board a Chinese freighter and slaughter the crew. China responds by brutally attacking and then occupying Somalia, quickly setting up missile pads that can target U.S. Naval ships. Now the U.S. high command is on red alert and the country's security is in total jeopardy. . .

Another flash point quickly emerges -- in Earth's orbit. When Chinese and Russian spacecraft surround an American space station, the threat is clear: negotiate and compromise, or China and Russia will cripple the U.S. Navy with ballistic missiles. Will the world's superpowers be plunged into a full-scale war?

With Executive Intent, the New York Times bestselling master thriller-writer Dale Brown crafts an action-packed tale of intrigue and technological weaponry that pits the world's superpowers in a contest for Earth's oceans and ultimate high ground -- space.

3 of 5 Executive Intent February 13, 2011
Reviewer: P, Sutton from Inglewood, West Australia  
I have been reading the bits in the newsletters about this author and the preamble of this novel sounded great so I bought it.
I did not like the book as I found I read over lots of the book without understanding what the author was talking about. I found the story was to enable the writer to discuss everything he knew about weapons and space equipment not put a great story together.
The build up was there and then you had things happening all over the world and the conclusion was in a couple of pages. What a disappointment. Normally in the last 100 pages of the book you know you are getting the build up of a climatic finish not just the last couple of pages.
I did not like the book and it should be read by weapon and space fanatics not those who want a real interesting story. I found the weapons and space was the main story not the actual plot.
Will not read anymore of the books as it does not suit my genre.  It is well written and researched just not my taste.
