Description
Everything in America is about to stop... 10,000 feet over Washington, D.C.! With the same breathtaking heroics that brought his bestsellingPandora's Clockinternational acclaim, John J. Nance once again spins today's headlines--this time about the threat of nuclear terrorism--into an all-too-realistic story of high-flying suspense.   For thirty-year-old captain Scott McKay, the transport run from Miami to Denver will give him the money he desperately needs to keep his fledgling air cargo company flying.  When a mysterious crate is discovered on his plane, however, McKay is ordered to abandon his present course and fly the crate and its owner, Vivian Henry, to Washington, D.C., before going to Denver.  McKay takes the forced detour in stride--until a strange noise comes from deep inside the crate.  It is the voice of Vivian's husband, Dr. Rogers Henry, warning that the shipment they are carrying is actually a fully armed Medusa device, a thermonuclear bomb that can destroy every computer chip over an entire continent, and blast the Silicon Age back to the Stone Age.  And it is set to go off within hours.   As panic spreads from the small community of nuclear scientists who used to work for Dr. Rogers Henry to the White House and eventually to the general public, a group of rogue military officers conspires to disobey the President's orders and secure the technology of the Medusa device, whatever the cost.  Will Captain McKay and his crew trust their own instincts to dispose of the bomb, or will they let a misguided government dictate their actions? Using his inside knowledge of the airline industry, as well as his expertise as a pilot, John J.  Nance has once again turned our worst fears into a terrifyingly realistic story.  Medusa's Childwill take readers into the center of a spine-tingling crisis.

display_descriptionNew York Times-bestselling author John J. Nance delivers an edge-of-your-seat tale of nuclear terrorism. Vivian Henry hasn't heard her ex-husband's voice in three years, but it still fills her with fear. Dangerous and brilliant, Dr. Rogers Henry is calling because he's dying. He offers Vivian a fortune in insurance money if she'll carry out one final task for him: Take the Medusa device to Washington, DC. The Medusa is his life's work-a thermonuclear bomb capable of knocking out all modern technology in the country-and he wants her to deliver it to the Pentagon before it falls into the wrong hands. Cargo plane captain Scott McKay is miles above the ground when the Medusa begins to speak. A recording of Dr. Henry's voice announces that the device is active and about to explode. With nowhere to land, Captain McKay must rely on his instincts and fly like he has never flown before to prevent a worldwide apocalypse.
