Summary

Summary

From New York Times bestselling author, former Secretary of Defense, and US Senator William S. Cohen, the political, apocalyptic thriller Final Strike 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.
