A tip from the CIA puts all New York law enforcement on high alert just days before the city’s Thanksgiving Day parade.
Then, mysteriously, small bombs begin exploding around the Five Boroughs, stretching the NYPD Bomb Squad thin—just when the main terrorist threat promises a scale of death and destruction beyond anything New York has ever seen.
A day before the parade, Sergeant Sandy Kahn races to meet a tipster in Queens—the girlfriend of a man who left ominous clues before going missing. Is he the bomber? The decoy? A dead end?
With the rest of his squad fully deployed along the two-and-a-half-mile parade route, Kahn, the ultimate team player, has to go solo. Racing against the clock, he uncovers a plot of diabolical simplicity and stunning destructive potential.
But millions already line the streets of Manhattan, the first marching bands have reached the VIP viewing stand, and floats are bouncing down the avenue. Can Kahn stop the plotters before the world’s most famous parade turns into a scene of cataclysmic slaughter?
