About this Book
**A rally for a controversial presidential candidate.
A terrorist threat.
A nightmare of cataclysmic proportions. **
Jack and Pamela Crittendon have hit the breaking point. After months out of work as a reporter, Jack is playing Mr. Mom and working part-time at Festival Arena with his survivalist friend Brian Shakespeare. Meanwhile, Pamela has gone back to work full-time while eight months pregnant. Having her recently widowed mother on hand isn’t making matters any easier.
With financial pressures boiling, Jack reports for duty at a rally for controversial presidential candidate Martin Sterling where he expects a mindless night on the job. But when Homeland Security picks up intel about a potential terrorist threat, Jack and Shakespeare are thrust into a life-or-death battle to save their own lives–and the lives of thousands of innocent people.
This third book in The Crittendon Files reminds us of the power of family, friendships and faith–and why we are never in as much control as we think.

From early in the book, I thought of the original Die Hard movie, terrorist taking control of a major venue and a hero. In this case our hero, Jack Crittendon, had some help.
I’m loving Jack and Pam more and more as this series develops. Pam’s mom is a hoot. And Brian Shakespeare was an excellent addition to the story with his survivalist ideas and his Rambo attitude. It was also great to see Derrick in this story as well and how he has grown as a person.
The action pretty much started from the opening pages and kept going throughout. The story was entertaining and in tradition of David C. Cook Publishing there is a strong story of faith. This story the author reminds us of the importance of living out our faith because people are watching us.
I would recommend this story those who enjoy action stories, with secondary stories of very common family issues that many families are facing today.
