William W. Johnstone continues his all-new action-packed series torn from today’s headlines in which the American people must fight for the future of their country…
Not since the days of the infamous Pancho Villa has a foreign force raided American soil for plunder. And when a busload of American schoolgirls is hijacked and taken across the border into Mexico, the repercussions prove to be deadly.
The gang of kidnappers is led by the ruthless crime lord Alphonso Guerrerro, whose daughter is on that bus. His ex-wife took his daughter back to the States, but Alphonso wants her back—it’s a matter of pride—and will stop at nothing to get her. Now he’s got a devil’s bounty of young women to be used as hostages, or sold into the horrors of white slavery in South America if his demands are not met.
But Vietnam vet Tom Brannon has something to say about this. His niece is on that school bus, so he’s recruiting a battle-tough squad of ex-soldiers made up from the families of the kidnapped girls. They’re going to rescue the girls and destroy Guerrerro and his gang of border thugs once and for all.

What a story
(Saturday, February 3, 2007)
My only complaint, I did not read Invasion USA first. It would have made the character placement much easier to follow.This was my fault because this was the first time I have read My Johnstone and did not know of his other book. This has been corrected. I really liked the story line and the quick pace of the book. I generally do not care for too much detail, it bogs down the story, and this author was excellent in my opinion of just enough detail to hold your intrest. It was extremely hard to put down. I am reading Invasion USA now and have bought 4 more of his titles and so far, I would highly recommend his reading.

An avid reader (and struggling writer) this is the first novel I've read by William Johnstone. It was a very fast read. Finished it in 8 or 9 hours. I enjoyed the characters. There were some holes in the plot but overall I could dismiss them because of how quickly the story went. I'm sure that when I read Invasion USA some of my questions will be answered. I would have liked to have seen the FBI agent dressed down by her superiors. And, the battle at the mission could have had more detail and lasted a few pages longer. But overall I enjoyed the book. Thank you.
