“Reaper Two-Six: Year 6 Act of Redemption” by Robert A. Grand is a part of a series, but it is quite capable of standing on its own. The author’s personal background has given him a measure of authenticity which shines throughout this engrossing thriller. Reaper Two-Six is an elite multinational covert squadron of the GDO, or Global Defense Organization. Tasked primarily with covert operations to seek and destroy terrorist threats around the world, their secret successes were so widespread that various funding entities decided they weren’t really necessary, so their budget was drastically cut and they were basically disbanded. Unwilling to go quietly into the night, one final ultra-covert mission was put into action which would require deep undercover infiltration of the world’s most infamous and deadly terrorist organizations: RAFCO. This mission was so deeply covert that only 3 members of the group knew anything about it: the two operatives whose lives would be on the line, and one second level supervisor who devised the plan.
The scene in which this novel plays out is not even remotely implausible. RAFCO, a major, well-funded terrorist group, acquires a pair of nuclear warheads which originated in Russia. RAFCO then steals the latest top secret, virtually invisible stealth aircraft from right under the noses of the Americans tasked with guarding it in its top secret location. RAFCO then proceeds with plans for multiple high-altitude nuclear detonations over the Eastern United States, for the purpose of bombarding half the country with an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, which would disable all electronic equipment within a several hundred mile radius. Communications would cease to function. Planes would lose the ability to fly. Cars built after 1980 would simply stall, never to start again. The resulting ripple effect ultimately would shut down the global economy, sending the planet back into the dark ages. The author has presented a stunningly realistic scenario which, in today’s world, is probably more likely than not. This is a novel that should be required reading for everyone in America of voting age. People need to know about the technology that is available to anybody, for the right price. Their very lives may depend on it.
