World War II has finally ended, but not for Jonathan Preston—the U.S. Army’s most successful covert operative—a new mission is just beginning. The U.S. Navy and Preston’s team of intelligence agents race against time to stop two rogue Japanese submarines from attacking the east coast of the U.S. with a biological weapon capable of inflicting unimaginable casualties.
As the U.S. Navy frantically attempts to find and destroy the submarines, Jonathan Preston and his team of counterintelligence agents rush to track down Japanese agents in the states. But, unfortunately, Japanese agents are ready to take possession of the biological agent when the subs arrive at their assigned destinations off the east coast.
Preston’s WWII nemesis, Japanese intelligence agent Asami Nakada has other plans. She takes possession of the biological agent, evades American operatives, and moves to attack Washington D.C. and Philadelphia from the land. Three Japanese attack aircraft inside the aircraft carrier submarine plan to drop biological bombs on New York City.
One reviewer writes: “Steve Doherty is definitely at the top of his writing craft and knows how to keep you up at night turning pages. It is a satisfying, gut-wrenching thriller, and Jonathan Preston is a hero that everyone can identify with and want on their side when things go wrong. His description of the Japanese aircraft carrier submarine is detailed and fascinating. It reveals a technology that most people do not know existed in WWII. Imminent Threat is his best novel yet.”
Robert Gandt, author and naval historian, writes: “Okay, Jonathan Preston fans, here’s what you’ve been waiting for. A new Preston thriller, set in the post-war ’40s with a cast of Axis villains, covert operatives, historical figures, and a satisfying, gut-wrenching finale. Imminent Threat is the best yet.”
