Crisis: While America Slept by Martin Clem is a gripping terrorist thriller with deep layers in the plot, plunging readers into a world where nothing is as it seems. Readers are introduced to the fight against ISIS, a familiar subject to contemporary readers, but in the hands of a master storyteller, it reaches a whole new level. Elizabeth Jennings is obsessed with rooting out domestic terror, but in her hunt for domestic terrorists, she discovers a dreadful truth. ISIS is planning something that could be most devastating: pulling resources and building an atomic bomb on American soil. She is determined to dig into the source of this evil and cut off the head of the snake. But politics is a dirty game, especially when it meddles with the fight against terror. An operation known as Black Moon — a joint operation of the NSA and the CIA — may have dealt ISIS a great blow, but there is worse to come. And it will happen while America sleeps. Can Liz and her team stop the inevitable?
Martin Clem writes like a military professional and readers can feel the intensity of the heat and the magnitude of the conflict developed with ingenuity. Liz, the protagonist, was my favorite character —passionate, intelligent, and driven. The prose is great, crisp and filled with military terminology, but it is very accessible. The pacing is fast and the author knows how to keep the reader’s attention. The narrative is done in a strong, clear and confident voice, and the story feels real. Crisis: While America Slept is well written, with a clever plot and a setting that captures the essential elements of what readers would encounter in real political and cultural life, taking readers across international boundaries. A really satisfying read, explosive and electrifying.
