Edge of Apocalypse by Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall

Edge of Apocalypse by Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall
The End Series

Joshua Jordan, wealthy weapons designer, creates the world's most sophisticated missile defense system, a laser shield code-named Return to Sender. If someone launches a nuclear missile towards America, the RTS laser meets it and turns it back on it's sender. At the beginning of the book, North Korea has built a warship that is on it's maiden voyage when a North Korean Admiral launches 2 nuclear missiles to attack New York. Jordan and his family are in Manhattan. There is no option but to try the untested RTS shield. In seconds New York is saved and the North Korean warship is blown to dust.

Mainstream America is thankful and Jordan is their hero but in Washington DC the climate is hostile to Jordan. A Congressional hearing is called to investigate Jordan and his technology. It seems that a private businessman had made a decision on national security and leaving them to face North Korea's accusations. The ineffectual President Corland is struggling with the problems of his predecessors - a failing economy, the falling dollar value, a credit crises and an oil shortage. Desperate to recover by selling the plans for the RTS, Corland wants to get his hands on the design. He is also a globalist. Then there are the international crooks who could make billions if they could get their hands on Jordan's technology. Jordan has a group of trusted conservative friends who are organized into a roundtable organization that is trying to brainstorm and organize resistance to the liberal and globalist policies that are destroying the country. With the help of these friends and a secret Christian group called The Patriots, Jordan is able to protect himself and his technology.

Jordan is not a Christian in this book but his wife, daughter and son have become Christians and he accepts it. Throughout the book, he is learning to respect his family's spiritual source and I'm sure he will become a Christian.

I really liked this book. It's exciting with lots of moves and counter-moves like a good chess game. I highly recommend it to anyone.
