Summary

Lone Wolf terrorists are about to kill 100,000 people at an Ohio State football game--can FBI agent John Booker stop the carnage?

FBI Special Agent John Booker was in deep cover until a Mob guy was found fermenting in the Staten Island landfill. “It wasn’t ‘technically’ my fault,” did not cut the mustard with the bureaucrats, and Booker was banished to Cleveland. There, he is assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force and meets other like-minded agents. FBI Agent Gwen McNulty, aka Agent 36 due to her bra size, is tough, irreverent, and capable. Tommy Shoulders, a Cleveland cop, is profane and never met a regulation he wouldn’t massage. Booker also enlists rookie agents Gia Olson and Sean Gregory, who are both eager to kick some jihad ass. Booker discovers that government, political correctness and restrictive policies will make it impossible to ever solve the threat of lone wolf attacks.  Booker and his team cannot get ahead of the problem without going rogue—so he decides to operate off the books. When Booker receives information that lone wolves plan to kill 100,000 people at an Ohio State football game, the agent must decide between family and country.

Though listed as a work of fiction, The Near Enemy is a frighteningly accurate account of why we are losing the war on terrorism, written by retired FBI agent John Ligato.
