Book Description

Threatcon Delta: Assault on the Pentagon tells the story of how terrorism, treason and global organized crime converge to place the most potent symbol of American military power under the control of a determined and ruthless group of heavily armed and extremely dangerous men who can’t be stopped, yet who must be stopped.

This global superthriller is based both on author David Alexander’s extensive and detailed research into the history of the Pentagon, combined with first-hand knowledge of the Pentagon's most closely held secrets by this veteran defense insider, all of which has been artfully woven into a masterpiece of high-concept suspense fiction.

In fact, the combined impact of accuracy and authenticity blended with superb storytelling may find some readers asking themselves if perhaps some parts of the story shouldn't have been made public, for fear that terrorists or global criminals might some day use it as a basis for an actual plan of attack.

Yet the assault on the Pentagon portrayed in the book is no standard terrorist martyrdom mission either. Those who’ve taken over the headquarters of the United States military have an exit strategy that has been brilliantly devised to shuttle them to safety and provide for the enjoyment of their ill-gotten profits -- a scam on a global scale that promises to net the Building’s hijackers a considerable fortune.

By any standard, Threatcon Delta: Assault on the Pentagon is action thriller fiction at its boldest and best. It’s one of the achievements that have earned David Alexander a secure place at the top of the list of the world’s masters of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alexander Has Written A Scorcher Of A Book! 16 Oct. 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
David Alexander has written a scorcher of a book. It's apparent that one is reading a master storyteller. The reader becomes caught up in the relentless tide of action that pounds and roars like a wild sea at night.

And if, when you finish this book, you feel a little tingle running down your spine, don't worry. It probably isn't "Blitz" Krieger's nightscope-equipped rifle tickling along your spine to a bulls-eye between the crosshairs at the back of your head. It's just the pleasant aftermath of a great story, ably told.

Also, I thought the Italian translation Threatcon Delta: Assalto sul pentagono (Italian Edition) was a good one, since I'm fluent in both it and English.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Thriller is Unbeatable and Brilliant! 14 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This exceptional technothriller by David Alexander takes considerable nerve to read because its scenes have that same cold, deadly quality about them as staring down the barrel of a gun. Makes the pulse race as you go along.

The characters also have that certain quality about them, as though they're larger-than-life portraits of real individuals, possibly special forces personnel whose traits have been drawn upon to create what I believe are some of the most unique and certainly the boldest characters I've come across in years of reading thriller fiction.

I also think it must have taken considerable nerve to write this thiller for the simple reason that a great deal of the plot devices seem to be almost a how-to guide to both exploiting the Pentagon's soft spots and using the assault as the cornerstone of a master plan for the cyber-criminal extortion of billions of dollars in untraceable funds. Of course, they didn't get away with it in Threatcon Delta, but in real life ... who knows? It certainly makes you think. Anyway, a really exceptional book. Alexander deserves applause for writing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 24 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
By any standard you can name, Threatcon Delta: Assault on the Pentagon is an outstanding novel of action, suspense and global intrigue that works for me on every level, including plot and character development and extremely clever manipulation of plot elements to bring out the most in the story, something that many another author usually misses. Even more impressive for me was that this second edition of the book made a good thing even better. The book showed a master's touch from start to finish, and I'll be reading this second edition a second time, at least.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Threat, No Con 6 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What did I love most about this thriller? No weasel stuff, no copping out by going off on tangents that have nothing to do with the story, stuff just thrown in to pad out a weak yarn. This thriller was rock solid and all its parts were joined together like something sitting on a mountain in Bolivia made by ancient astronauts using future power tools in the stone age. How did the aliens do it? Nobody knows. Same question can be asked here. Where did all these neat inventions, these in my opinion really novel twists and turns originate from? I actually hope they were completely made up, because if any of this turns out to be true, then we should all be scared of what might happen in real life if someone used this plan to actually attack the Pentagon.

I rate this thriller very highly. Extremely realistic plotting, characters and superb action. Should be a model for all thrillers. I also think many of the characters and situations may have been based at least partly on true-to-life observations from the author's work at the Defense Department and NATO. The excellent plot carried me along. Everything about it went like clockwork. If Threatcon Delta were made into a movie, it would be a smash hit. Fortunately it's already a hit as a book. I've also just read Terminal Vector and the nonfiction Military-Industrial Complex, which I thought were extremely well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Compares! Absolutely Terrific! 29 Nov. 2010
By Kareem
Format:Kindle Edition
This thriller was absolutely terrific. You want high-concept action thriller writing? This is the place to go.

This book has got "movie" written all over it. This actioner isn't just about an assault on the Pentagon, it's an assault on the very conventions of the thriller category itself. In other words, this book is shock and awe in written form.

An exceptional achievement by a top author.
