Inside Threat (A Riley Covington Thriller, Book 4) by Jason Elam and Steve Yohn

Inside Threat (Riley Covington, #4)After taking two football seasons off, Riley Covington is attempting to make a comeback in the league while trying to forget Khadi Faroughi, now on security detail for a prominent senator.

But a new attack turns both of their lives upside down yet again. During a state funeral, terrorists overrun the National Cathedral and take senators, congressmen, and their entourages hostage, including Khadi. This new generation of The Cause is made up of homegrown terrorists—an inside threat to the security of the nation. They release most of the hostages, but Khadi and several others are kept behind as significant bargaining chips.

The Cause pledges to behead one member of Congress each day throughout the month of Ramadan as a punishment for their own country’s rejection of Islam. Despite the protests of Counter-Terrorism Division director Scott Ross, Riley races to CTD armed with a plan and a fierce determination to rescue Khadi at all costs.

I Give This Book: 5 Stars

My Thoughts:
There is just something about the 'Riley Covington' series that I just love, and I think that 'Inside Threat' is the best book in the series. It has suspense, action, drama, comedy, and a little romance - all of which meld together so well, that if asked, I couldn't put this book into just one genre. I have been waiting for over a year to read this book and let me tell you that it was definitely worth the wait! I know that when I get a new "Riley Covington" book in my hands, I am in for an edge-of-my-seat, heart-pounding time.

After 'Blackout', I wasn't sure how the authors could write a more chilling and gripping story, but they definitely did it with 'Inside Threat'. Once I started reading it, I just couldn't put this book down.

'Inside Threat' deals with home-grown terrorists and their plans to attack America.  This book had me laughing, screaming, crying (and let me tell you I am not a person that cries easily), and it had my heart-racing. 'Inside Threat' is a book that will stick with me for awhile.

I have a feeling that this will be the final book in the series, and while it ends in a completely different way than I thought it would, this series was amazing. However, I wouldn't recommend this book to those who are very sensitive, because there are some very gruesome scenes. But, if you have already read the first three books, I am sure you don't need me to recommend this book to you - you, like me, were probably anxiously awaiting to read this book! To those who haven't, to fully appreciate this book, you must read the first three books in the series first.

***I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publishers to review. I was not required to give a positive review, but only to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done***
