Synopsis
The world's most elite counterterrorism unit has just taken its game to an entirely new level. And not a moment too soon . . .

From behind the rows of razor wire, a new breed of counterterrorism operator has emerged.

Just as skilled, just as fearsome, and just as deadly as their colleagues, Delta Force's newest members have only one thing setting them apart-their gender. Part of a top-secret, all-female program codenamed The Athena Project, four of Delta's best and brightest women are about to undertake one of the nation's deadliest assignments.

When a terrorist attack in Rome kills more than twenty Americans, Athena Team members Gretchen Casey, Julie Ericsson, Megan Rhodes, and Alex Cooper are tasked with hunting down the Venetian arms dealer responsible for providing the explosives. But there is more to the story than anyone knows.

In the jungles of South America, a young U.S. intelligence officer has made a grisly discovery. Surrounded by monoliths covered with Runic symbols, one of America's greatest fears appears to have come true. Simultaneously in Colorado, a foreign spy is close to penetrating the mysterious secret the U.S. government has hidden beneath Denver International Airport.

As Casey, Ericsson, Rhodes, and Cooper close in on their target, they will soon learn that another attack-one of unimaginable proportions-has already been set in motion, and the greatest threat they face may be the secrets kept by their own government.More Reviews and Recommendations

Editorial Reviews -

The Athena Project

From Barnes & Noble
The forces of counterterrorism never rest in this new full-throttle Brad Thor thriller. The Athena Project engraved in the title is the code name for the training of an elite team of multi-skilled female warriors recruited from world champion athletes. Once deployed, these superlatively conditioned operatives will pursue missions even more dangerous than impossible. Covert action; military intrigue; reader excitement.
