A terror of new kind is winding its way through the backstreets and crime networks of New York City
a culmination of decades of unrest, an unholy alliance of age-old grudges, and a newly-sophisticated syndicate of evil which promises to spread fear and mayhem throughout the country. How will the NYPD and FBI cope when so many of their worst fears are realized?
The Author drops his readers once again in the heart of New York City’s darkest corners - a city on edge, its citizens somehow aware of the terror which is bubbling beneath the surface of its streets and systems, and yet unknowing of how deep the threat actually goes.
The city has been rocked by a series of ISIS atrocities, which have lit a rocket beneath Joey Galeno, Jimmy Boy Craig and the Joint Terrorist Task Force, firing them into action on a mission to bring the responsible to justice. However, a drastic and unexpected twist awaits: there’s a deep and hateful connection between the Islamist attackers and the fearsome INFA - the Irish National Freedom Army - who are flying the flag of the IRA in the heart of Queens, New York. Could it be that ISIS and the IRA have joined forces against a common enemy, in an effort to bring New York to its knees?
This breathless thriller packs in more twists and turns than a high-octane rollercoaster, and takes off from where the author left us at the end The Last Day, his readers still reeling from the annihilation and danger that haunted the pages of that award-winning thriller. We rejoin the newly promoted NYPD Deputy Chief Ellen Tomlinson, Lieutenant Joey Galeno, and FBI Agent Jimmy Craig - who have barely recovered from their previous brushes with death and the criminal underworld - on a new mission, even more deadly, terrifying, and far-reaching than anything they’ve faced before.
From the very first pages, readers will be thrown into a series of literary explosions and shocking twists which leave their pulses racing and their eyes eager for more. This is a crime novel which takes the thriller genre to a whole new level, and consistently shocks, surprises, amazes, and intrigues with each and every chapter. Robert L. Bryan is a powerhouse of storytelling, and The Last Apostle is his best work yet.
