When Jake Mahegan receives a distress call from General Savage in North Carolina, he rushes to the commander’s home—and walks right into an ambush. When the smoke clears, Mahegan is alive but the implications of the attack are as absolute as death: The terrorists are here . . . and no one is safe. Joining forces with Savage’s combat JAG officer, Alexandra Russell, Mahegan follows the trail to a killer who goes by the name “Jackknife,” a Syrian refugee-turned-terrorist who vows to avenge the bombing of a Syrian wedding—by killing as many Americans as possible.
But time is running out for Mahegan. Terrorist cells are gathering in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Hackers are emptying the nation’s banks of millions of dollars. And their final act of vengeance will bring the whole world to its knees.
Often compared with Tom Clancy in his writing, Tata grew up in Virginia Beach, VA, the son to two public school educators, and went on to graduate from West Point. He commanded combat units in the 25th Infantry and 4th Infantry Divisions, the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions and the 10th Mountain Division He has conducted combat operations in many tours most recently as the Deputy Commanding General of the Allied and Joint Task Force in Afghanistan, where he earned the Combat Action Badge and Bronze Star Medal.
Tata is the National Security Expert for One American News Network, appearing every Tuesday with Liz Wheeler on Tipping Point. He also has appeared frequently as a guest commentator on Fox News, NBC's Today Show, CBS Early Show , CNN and local television stations around the country.
Following his military career, General Tata transitioned from the army to education leadership, where he served as the Chief Operations Officer of Washington, DC Public Schools and as the Superintendent of the 16th largest school district in the nation in Wake County/Raleigh, NC. He was most recently North Carolina's Secretary of Transportation.
