Kurzbeschreibung

A raid on a Pakistan Al-Qaeda cell recovers two laptops. When the computers' booby-traps are defused and the computers decrypted and translated, they indicate that Al-Qaeda has planned a series of simultaneous attacks in five U.S. cities involving potential dirty bombs, biological weapons and maybe even a nuclear weapon-on Election Day. Derek Stillwater, troubleshooter for the Department of Homeland Security, is assigned to a multi-jurisdictional Special Terrorism Activity Response Team (START) to locate the weapon and terrorists in Los Angeles and prevent the attack. They have two days. But as they close in on their targets, Derek begins to think that the intelligence they gathered is a sideshow to distract them from the real target-one of the two candidates for President of the United States.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Valley of Shadows: A Derek Stillwater Thriller 23. April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Mir gefällt immer wieder die unkonventionelle Art, mit der Dr. Stillwater sich den Bedrohungen entgegenstellt. Auch wenn ich manchmal glaube, dass so viele Verletzungen jemanden eher handlungsunfähig machen würden.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing Thriller 24. Juli 2011
Von Mary Bower - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I thought this was an amazingly well done thriller. A raid in Pakistan uncovers an al-queda plot to set off explosions in five US cities in two days. Dr. Derek Stillwater, an agent with homeland security, is assigned to one of several multi-agency teams assigned to track down the explosives and stop the terrorists. The team Stillwater is assigned to is dysfunctional to say the least and Stillwater is a loose cannon himself. As you go through the two days with the team you hardly have a chance to catch your breath - the pace is incredible. I found the characters to be well-developed and interesting, the plot incredibly realistic (even scary), the writing style exceptional, and the book impossible to put down. I also liked that Mr. Terry was not afraid to kill off characters that I had begun to develop a bond with because it brought true emotion into the book. I definitely plan to go back and read other books in this series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Smart, slick, fast and furious. 16. Juni 2011
Von Robert Carraher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Smart, slick, fast and furious. Easily the best thriller of the year. What an accomplishment. Not only does the author seem prescient in the story's premise in the wake of the raid to kill bin Laden but the book is a perfect balance of plot, pacing, structure and character development with a subject that is very much in the forefront of much of the worlds mind.
The plot, well read the blurb. But Derek is a more human character in this, the fourth installment, than super hero, showing traits of say the great hardboiled detectives. A loner, a tough guy who is also fallible. Think James Bond meets Phillip Marlowe. The Pace: Relentless. Mark Terry, with a master story tellers hand, drops details by the dozen, personal and real, but never to the point of bogging the story down. How he manages to get so much detail into the story without slowing the pace is amazing. Think of the details as the paint job on a race car, it just makes it easier to "feel" for the players and tell them apart but it doesn't slow them in the least. Structure: Perfect. Mark's research must have been exhaustive. His knowledge of everything from technology to strategy and tactics of that Shadow World of the American alphabet soup; CIA, NSA, ODNI, FBI down to the traditional dress of Muslims, the gray area of arms dealers, international banking, and even traffic at different times of day on L.A. city streets and freeways is amazing when you think about it. The story follows logically a race against time and tries to solve a mystery - why, where and who will be the target. This man is a master story teller, and a first rate craftsman at getting it down. I'm going to be talking about, and thinking about this book for a long time, so get used to it. Go buy it and I may leave you alone. Or talk your ear off as we discuss it, because it is that kind of book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Couldn't put it down, a thrilling ride. 27. August 2011
Von KBroadhead - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The only reason that I am not giving this a 5 star rating is because of the language.
I was captured by the plot of this book from the opening pages. Derek and a team of people that run the gamut from FBI to HLS. This team called START is trying to protect the United States from the terrorist attacks that are discovered when an apartment is taken down in Pakistan.The real clincher of the book for me is how real the plot it. The terrorist could actually do what is written without much trouble. We like to think we are protecting ourselves but we are we?
I will be reading more from Mark Terry, language and all.

4.0 von 5 Sternen action-packed thriller 21. Juni 2011
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
US forces conduct a raid of an Al-Qaeda compound in Pakistan. The Special Forces unit captures laptops that contain plans for terrorist attacks using all types of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) on any or all of Washington, New York, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles on Election Day.

Department of Homeland Security Special Terrorism Activity Response Team is assigned to find the terrorists, especially the cell leader art history Professor Miraj "Kalakar" Khan, and their WMDs. The mission is like finding a needle in a haystack, but also must be done in two days or else. The DSH Director adds his top field agent Derek Stillwater to the unit.

Besides the timeliness with the Bin Laden death, the fourth Derek Stillwater thriller (see The Fallen, The Devil's Pitchfork and The Serpent's Kiss) is an action-packed tale that has readers running alongside of Derek and his mates. The story line is fast-paced as the clock ticks away. Although with the exception of his on and off nuclear expert girlfriend Cassandra, the unit is somewhat shallow (then again this is Derek's story), fans of a thrill a paragraph will relish The Valley of Shadows.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good Thriller 1. Dezember 2012
Von Barbara C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The opening scene is a semi-successful raid on a terrorist cell in Pakistan. One of the members, Kalakar, has escaped. It is up to the combined forces of Homeland Security, FBI, ODNI, and other agencies to foil multi-pronged attacks in the US.

Dr. Derek Stillwater is an unconventional (cowboy) Homeland Security agent as part of this task force. Combine him with the by-the-book members of the group and you have interesting tension, as all try to stop the elusive Kalakar.

This is a good thriller which tries to show all sides of the view points. It was an entertaining read.
