First Strike: Loudoun County by A.W. Guerra & Kelly Hoggan
The United States is under a nationwide terrorist attack. After wholesale assassinations, including at the very top, government at all levels is now paralyzed and unable to respond. Law enforcement is struggling, the military is leaderless and rudderless. Mass panic among the citizenry is building.
Now, retired Army Delta Force operator Luke Ellis, 17-year-old teen Annie Dedham and her 12-year-old brother Darren, along with young Loudoun County, Virginia, deputy sheriff Alec Holman, are in a race against time to prevent the destruction of humanity. To succeed, though, they need the help of a mysterious woman scientist. Only she can stop Armageddon from taking place and save the world from something she created in the first place. There’s a huge problem, though: Terrorists are rampaging through the small Loudoun County hamlet of Lucketts and they’re after the same scientist.
What Ellis and his little band do over the next several hours could save every man, woman, and child on Earth. But if they fail, almost everyone’s destruction is practically guaranteed. Can everyday people make a difference and save the world? The answer to that question lies at the heart of this fast-moving tale.
