Seamus was strapped down to a cot, his arms tied above his head, his legs tied down as well. After he was secure, they hoisted the cot sideways and mounted it against the wall it was done. He couldn’t see behind himself. Were there hooks on the wall? That would just figure. Scarface had done nothing for the décor, but he had made sure he had an efficient place to torture people. Most of the security detail disappeared after he was hung on the wall. Apparently they thought he posed little threat at that point.

Lawyer and former senator Ben Kincaid is meeting with the president when Washington suddenly explodes into chaos.

Book in the Ben Kincaid Series). by William Bernhardt. Ben Kincaid is back in Washington with a temporary appointment. While he's in a meeting in the Oval Office, a national emergency erupts.

William Bernhardt’s bestselling novels explore politics, power, ambition, crime, and the law. Now he scales new heights of suspense as, in one harrowing day, lawyer and former senator Ben Kincaid enters the eye of an international storm, a crisis with consequences beyond calculation.Kincaid is in a meeting with the president in the Oval Office when Washington suddenly explodes into chaos. Facing an imminent threat to the White House, Kincaid is whisked, along with the president and his advisors, to the underground PEOC—Presidential Emergency Operations Center—built to withstand a nuclear blast, but vulnerable to another kind of attack.Inside the bunker, defense specialists realize that a malevolent foreign dictator has hacked into the U.S. nuclear defense system and now has a finger on the trigger of America’s most dangerous weapons. The dictator’s message is clear: Heed his demands or suffer unfathomable destruction. Forced to make critical, split-second decisions, the president seems to be falling apart under the pressure. The vice president wants to strip him of his powers—a move that could have a disastrous impact on national defense. But even during this time of upheaval, in order for the president to be removed, there must be a trial. With the clock winding down, Kincaid has precious little time to defend the president. While Kincaid faces the trial of his life, legendary CIA agent Seamus McKay races through the clogged streets of Washington, searching for a hidden command center—guarded by murderous fanatics—that now controls U.S. ballistic missiles.Two sides of one unforgettable story, McKay and Kincaid home in on their targets. One uses a gun—and any weapon he can get his hands on; the other employs his intuition and the law. And in William Bernhardt’s spectacular thriller, as both move closer and closer to uncovering a world-shattering plot, the ultimate act of betrayal is launched from the heart of America’s capitol itself.

I read ALL of the Ben Kincaid series by William Bernhardt and I love the character of Ben Kincaid and his associates who are included in each and every book. I hope William Bernhardt continues writing this series. I just finished the 19 book in this series and can’t wait for more. Definitely a must read series!

I've read the entire Ben Kincaid series, but after reading the reviews I put this one off for awhile. I actually disagree with most of the reviews and found this book to be one of the harder ones to put down. But I am very unhappy that it was the last of the series, and it left so many open ends! *spoilers ahead* they made the whole mike and Julia thing such a big deal in the beginning of the series, and when Ben took care of joey he realized that it was mike's kid, but then she came and took the baby away.......and that was it!!!! I needed her to come back, I needed closure with her and mike!!!!! Was it his kid???? And mike wasn't even in this book!!! He was a huge part of the series, and not even in the finale??? Are him and his partner dating or aren't they??? Also, I want to know what happened with Loving!!! I figured there would be more to his long lost dad hallucinations when he left to go find himself, but nope, hes just gone and no ones heard a word!!!! It was a great book as part of the series, but definately not a great finale for an 18 book series!! So disappointed :(

As always, I enjoyed another Kincaid case develop leading to a resolution with the customary twist at the end

Except for several editing errors, especially the mid-identification of the doctor and admiral on page 145, this plot was fairly entertaining.

Although I would not describe the plot in this book as particularly realistic, it was fun to read. What made it interesting was how the characters responded to the situation in which they found themselves, especially the improvised court-room scenario.
