Able Danger by Kensington Roth

Mining the conspiracy theories of 9/11, Kensington Roth has created a rollercoaster of a thriller.  The same forces that the conpiracists believe really caused 9/11, the government, the military, the corporations that thrive on war, are now ready for the next roll of the dice.  9/12 will be blamed on the Chinese as well as the Middle Eastern terrorists, creating a furor and desire for an invasion of the Chinese mainland.

Standing between this plan and the American people is Agent 006--Harrison Court.  He has been given the authority to do anything it takes to make the United States safe, and that includes plots like this.  His adversary is Desage, an ex-CIA agent now working for the other side. 

The big twist is that unknown to those creating a false conspiracy, China really is an adversary.  They have created a new weapon that silently kills and maims anyone in its path.  Can Court and his Chinese lover thwart these plans and ward off deployment of this new weapon?

Roth has created a thriller that takes the reader on a breaktaking ride from Italy to China to the caves of Tora Bora.  This book is recommended for readers of spy novels who like non-stop action.
