One fateful day, the worst attack on American soil brings out the very best in our nation’s heroes—in this powerful thriller from bestselling author

David Poyer

On the morning of September 11th, 2001, Commander Dan Lenson is visiting the Pentagon while his wife is at a job interview at the World Trade Center. In the terrifying moments that follow, their lives are changed forever. Our nation is under siege. And, as the whole world watches the towers fall, the search for Bin Laden begins…

With blow-by-blow descriptions, [The Towers] does a great job putting you in the middle of the action.”—Kirkus Reviews

Still reeling from the tragedy, Lenson’s SEAL team is assigned to Task Force Rhino in Afghanistan. Their mission: to hunt down, capture, or kill Osama bin Laden and other senior members of the Taliban and al Qaeda. But Lenson quickly discovers the odds are against them. The terrain is impenetrable, the journey grueling, the mission spiraling out of control. And before they can take down a target that’s just beyond their reach—they have to face an enemy that’s all too close…

“A great tale…harrowing…This is an excellent glimpse at the immediate post 9/11 world.” —Genre Go Round Reviews
