By author Steven Clark Bradley Genre: Suspense Thriller REVIEW How can America ever forget what happened on September 11, 2001? A horror that's better known as 9-1-1, and a nightmare that shocked all Americans, a disaster that should have never occurred. While on a ship in Bermuda, the captain announced the terrifying event, three-thousand people aboard in complete panic for their loved ones who they may have lost that day. As I viewed the burning towers on TV, I immediately thought of friends who I knew worked there, and prayed in silence that their lives didn't end. I knew the amount of people that had to be hurt, and could silently hear the screams. Husbands, wives, and children. Pregnant women, firefighters, and police officers. Innocent bystanders, and tourists. I thought to myself, how many times have I looked up to the towers? But on this day, I never imagined devastation would occur! Me, along with millions of Americans who were all asking the same two questions, why, and how? Steven Clark Bradley's "PATRIOT ACTS" comes to life, and is as scary as the same day I witnessed the tragedy of the burning towers. He creates a picture-perfect image of terrorism, and brings it to life in his adrenaline-pumping story of a nuclear attack after visiting thirty-four countries, and expertise on working as a freelance journalist. I recommend this novel to all those interested to learn about terrorism, for military fiction fans, and all thriller lovers. The reader is able to dive into the dangerous mind of a terrorist, learning what motivates such a person, and why this person can become a walking time bomb. This novel leaves an aftermath behind, without a doubt, and the readers will indeed keep thinking about the War on Terror, long after they close the book. For added touches, the author cleverly demonstrates what it feels like to live through a national crisis, and the reader can sense the fear through this remarkable story. "PATRIOT ACTS" is as intense as "ARLINGTON ROAD" where your paranoia can become real, and is as mesmerizing as "WORLD TRADE CENTER."
