In his political, apocalyptic thriller, Final Strike, former Secretary of Defense and US Senator William Cohen dramatizes one of the most terrifying global security nightmares: an asteroid hurtling towards Earth

Sixty million years ago, the K-T Asteroid obliterated the dinosaurs, and now its apocalyptic twin is rocketing toward the US on a similar mission of extermination. Russian President Boris Lebed, the charismatic successor to Vladimir Putin, wants to turn that asteroid into a superweapon to use against the US and is holding Hamilton hostage in Moscow until Hamilton agrees to help. Former Senator and National Security Advisor Sean Falcone leads a dangerous off-the-books operation to bring Hamilton home and derail Lebed’s disastrous plan.

But will Falcone succeed in time?

The asteroid is hurtling toward earth. If it is not deflected, humanity will go the way of dinosaurs, and the entire planet will burn. Only one strategy has a chance of stopping humanity’s extinction—only one. There is no Plan B.

The fate of the world hangs in the balance.

Praise for Final Strike

“Exceptional . . . a novelist of the first order.”
—William R. Forstchen, New York Times bestselling author of One Second After

—Ward Larsen, USA Today bestselling author of Cutting Edge and winner of five major book awards

“An exciting and completely believable thriller.”
—Larry Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Fatal Thunder

“I like to see scientific plausibility in science fiction writing (or else, for me, it makes the story unbelievable), and the author has done a first-rate job with Final Strike to get all the scientific details correct. I would not change a thing. Nicely done.”
—David G. Simpson, Ph.D., physicist and noted space scientist

“Here comes another knockout political thriller from a man who really knows his way around politics and thrillers, too. It’s rocketing toward you right now, with all the speed of the asteroid at the heart of the plot. So sit down, strap in, and start reading. This one has it all... good guys, bad guys, vividly drawn locations, huge scenes of breathless action, and as with all William Cohen's books, it will leave you thinking at the end... and that asteroid, too. Terrific entertainment.

"I have long been an ardent admirer of Cohen and his writing, and, as former Defense Secretary, he has true inside knowledge as to how our government would respond to an impending asteroid strike. This story will keep you up nights and on the edge of your seat. Hat's off, Secretary Cohen! A great book!”
