His count was off. Second Lieutenant Riley Covington of the United States Air Force Special Operations Command was on watch at a perimeter security post. He had been lying at the top of a low rise, watching his sector, for four hours, and each time he had counted the boulders on the hill across the small valley, he had come up with thirty-six. This time, however, the count reached thirty-seven. Keep it together, buddy, Riley thought as he rubbed his eyes. He shifted slightly to try to allow the point of a rock that had been boring into his left leg to begin a new hole.

But when he discovers a terrorist plot, he can't sit on the sidelines--and rejoins his special ops team. Will he be able to block the terrorists in time, or will the clock run out?

This collection bundles all four titles from the thrilling Riley Covington series by Jason Elam and Steve Yohn into one volume for a great value! Monday Night Jihad He thought his deadliest enemy knelt across the line of scrimmage. He was wrong! After a tour of duty in Afghanistan, Riley Covington is living his dream as a professional linebacker when he comes face to face with a radical terrorist group on his own home turf Voir la suite.

Authors: Jason Elam, Steve Yohn. Riley Covington is given grace to play NFL football instead of serving out his military time, but he opts to return to active duty after a horrific stadium bombing. Hakeem Qasim is an Iraqi groomed for terrorism by tragic events in his childhood. The lives of both the squeaky-clean Christian Riley and the radical Muslim Hakeem intersect in a way that readers will see coming early in the novel. Rich details about life as an NFL player invigorate the story; the details become problematic when the story gets wordy (as in one long and unnecessary chapter toward the end of the book).

Jason Elam, Steve Yohn. It is to the real Jesus that I dedicate this book. First and foremost for God-this is definitely a You thing. Also, for Nancy -a true Proverbs 31 woman. His count was off.

Not that these free books that have been lately available are bad, but is this propaganda or what? So many free books, so many christian writers providing them. Why is Amazon supporting this? It makes me very, very uncomfortable. Me and all of my friends have been talking about this and we don't know whether to continue to order on Amazon...

This is a well written and interesting thriller. I don't miss vulgarity or sex scenes. I like the way characters are not identified by race. I do not mind the protagonist being Christain and expressing his faith as a regular part of his life. My faith is Buddhist and I am a native born patriotic American who opposes terrorism as much as the protagonist does. However I have read several self-described Christian thrillers and I am concerned at the way the war on terrorism is characterized as a war between Jesus and his specifically Christian of a particular type followers and Allah and his followers rather than what seems a truer picture: a war between violent fanatics and people of goodwll of all faiths who believe in freedom of religon and other basic Americn ideals and principles of equality and democracy as contaned in our Constitution.
The inclusion of one good-guy Moslem does not do it for me as she is female and all females are marginalized and relegated to submissive roles in these books - and even though she is the real hero of the book (no spoiler from me). She has also expressed a lack of understanding of parts of the Q'ran, leaving openher conversion to the "true faith," which I am sure wll happen in a subsequent book.
For an audience who agrees with the political positions presented in the book, it is a good read. As a non-Christian person of faith who is alsp a patriotic American, those political positions scare me.

Hariet, Jason Elam IS NOT a former NFL kicker and still plays a vital part in the Denver Broncos system. He is a Christian, public speaker, and a very humble guy. Steve Yohn is the Director of Adult Ministries at Fellowship Community Church near Denver. You ARE CORRECT when you state they "have written an exciting fast paced thriller that goes inside the mind of the terrorist to learn why they perform such horrific acts". This is a great book! Everyone should take the time to read this book to get inside the head of an Islamic fanatic and understand how he feels about the differences between the world of Islam and Christianity. You also go along for a ride that's a thrill a minute. Very well written. Go buy it! Way to go Jason from a fan from St James Presbyterian.

I doubt that I would have ever found this book if I had not been told about it by a friend with whom I share an interest in various kinds of novels.

She had not read it, but she lives in Denver and the principal author of the book is Jason Elam, a member of the NFL Denver Broncos and their place kicker. She saw a review of the book in a local paper and mentioned that I might want to take a look at it. I did and I am very glad that I did so. It is a first rate novel on terrorisim that tells a gripping storty and that offers insight into that war that we are all involved in.

The principal figure in the book is Riley Covington. A former member of the USAF Special Operations Command seeing duty in Afghanastan and a graduate of the Air Force Academy, Covington has, after his tour of duty
been drafted by the Denver Mustangs and made the team as a linebacker.

Hakim Quasin is the antagonist of the story who, as a child, has seen his family bombed to dust in Operation Desert Storm and has sworn vengence on the United States. He is taken under the wing of a man known as "The Scorpion" who sees to it that the 12 year old Quasin is sent to Europe where the moulding process begins.

The planning begins to come to fruition as terrorists enter the United States with a plan to bring the war again to our shores. They are part of an organization known as The Cause.

Some former members of Covington's military unit are involved in trying to track them down and are closing in on some of them as they launch an attack at the Mall of America. Evidence obtained as a result of this action leads them to the belief that more is coming. But what?

Meanwhile, the Mustangs are preparing for an important league game on Monday Night Football. Unknown to anyone, so is The Cause. The attack is lauched during the game with much loss of life in a horrifying manner.

Covington is uninjured, but was very much in the middle of what transpired. As he contemplates what he witnessed "the question that dominated his mind was what could he do about what happened tonight? He hadn't asked to be drawn into this fight. In fact, he had left the Air Force Special Operations Command so that he wouldn't have to fight anymore. His days of ringing ears and dodging projectiles were supposed to be over."

"But now they had brought the fight back to him. They attacked his people. They had killed his friend."

These thoughts are the genisis of his return to special ops and the tracking down of the people responsible. The story spins out in a believable and compelling fashion and is very difficult to put down.

An interesting sidelight to this book is that Elam and his co-author are committed Christians. Their views on religion are shared in this work without being preachy or over bearing. They also have managed to write a book about some very tough people doing a very good job without using any profanity whatsoever. I was about a quarter of the way into the book before it dawned on me that I did not think they had used any swear words. Their committment to that shows that it can be done without distracting from the telling of the story.

This is a book that deserves to be read. I hope you do so and spread the word.
