Summary Islamic militants unleash terrorism by blowing up in a bus in Brooklyn. FBI Terrorism Task Force chief Anthony Hubbard investigates. Agents track a suspect through Brooklyn, while Hub teams with Middle East expert and NSA operative Elise Kraft. After the FBI wipes out three Arabs in a Brooklyn apartment, an explosion in a Broadway theater is followed by attacks on a school and the FBI headquarters. When the President declares martial law, neo-fascist Army General William Devereaux swings into action, deploying tanks through Brooklyn, capturing Arab-American males, and herding them into an open-air stadium detention camp. With the Army out of control, the power-crazed Devereaux devises plans for totrure and murder, turning his attention to Hub and Elise.
