Item description for Retribution by John Copeland...
In Retribution, one man's crusade to avenge the death of a fallen comrade turns into an urgent race against time and nuclear terrorism, with the survival of Western civilization hanging in the balance. Retribution is the tale of John Burns, a former Marine officer turned CIA operative who has dedicated his life and career to hunting down the Arab terrorists who captured, tortured, and murdered his commanding officer, Col. Thomas West. Burns' personal quest for retribution gives way to a discovery of global proportions: his friend's murderers have now launched a plan to attack a host of Western cities with nuclear weapons. As Burns chases down a nuclear bomb headed for America, his mission evolves from one of retribution to one of redemption.

Reviews - What do customers think about Retribution?
A Must Read Jul 21, 2001
After reading John Copeland's action novel Retribution I feel I must recommend his novel to every American. It is time we all recognize the real threat to our way of life. Before starting Retribution I read the reviews and noted words like, action filled novel, magnificently written, uncomfortably plausible, and could and probably will happen. After reading John Copeland's novel I can say without reservation the reviews were all correct.
Current Concerns Sep 25, 2000
John Copeland has matched Tom Clancey and Nelson Demille with a action filled novel that places the reader in the middle of the story. Fast reading that keeps your attention. A must read for all interested in current world affairs, as you read this book, the reader can have a virtual reality experience.Looking forward to Copeland's next book.
Real Action Sep 22, 2000
Great story, with good character develoment and plenty of action. Even though this story is fiction, it could and probably will happen sometime in the future.
In John Copeland's outstanding novel Retribution, a former Marine Corps officer and CIA operative tracks down the men who murdered his former commander and uncovers a Hezbollah terrorist plot to destroy Western civilization using suitcase-sized nuclear weapons. Retribution is an magnificently written, uncomfortably plausible, action/adventure novel -- the kind of reading that grips hold of you from first page to last.
