Terrorists plan to attack Minnesota's Prairie River Nuclear Power Plant, but they’re not your typical band of Islamic extremists. True, there’s an al Qaeda connection. But the heart of the ‘terror cell’ is homegrown, right here in the United States.
James "Beck" Becker is a former elite U.S. government intelligence operative who has retired to his childhood hometown of Red Wing, Minnesota – just six miles down the Mississippi from the Prairie River Power Station. He recognizes connections between seemingly unrelated incidents – a murdered agronomy professor, a missing lab assistant, an international cell call, a stolen fertilizer truck, an explosion in the street in front of City Hall – but can't piece it together in enough detail to convince government authorities that a larger threat exists. Only his American Indian friend, "Bull," will help Beck defuse the threat.
So it's Beck and Bull versus the best terror cell west of the Mississippi.
May the better men win.

Review: This book is one of the most exciting thrillers that you will ever read. The dialog with the characters, all their interaction, is absolutely wonderful.
A mind turning book that keeps you thinking -- terrorism, nuclear power
This is a must have for almost every book shelf. I have not read his first book The Missing Element. However, The 19th Element completely stands alone. It's also the kind of book that screams for a sequel.
