Publisher's Summary

From A. J. Tata, “Chasing the Lion is a taut thriller that delivers blistering action and mind-blowing tension. Garrett Sinclair is a powerhouse of a hero, and Chasing the Lion is exactly the type of smart and propulsive tale that will keep readers turning pages and anxiously awaiting future installments.” (Mark Greaney, number-one New York Times best-selling author)

As a child, Dariush Parizad survived Iran’s Islamic uprising, becoming a symbol of the revolution. Named The Lion of Tabas by the ayatollah himself, Parizad rose through his nation’s military to become a lethal soldier and brilliant tactical commander. Now a general, he leads Quds Force, an extremist terrorist organization targeting America and its western allies. 

The United States has just uncovered a biochemical weapon, Demon Rain, developed by Parizad’s group. A psychoactive viral agent, it attacks a person’s nervous system and renders them susceptible to mind control. Parizad plans to unleash Demon Rain within Washington D.C. on Inauguration Day during the swearing in of the country’s first female president to spread fear and chaos, turning civilians into weapons. 

Assigned to stop the terrorist strike are Army Lieutenant General Garrett Sinclair and his Joint Special Operations Command team. Across the Middle East, Europe, and the US, Sinclair pursues Parizad only to discover a deeper conspiracy - involving a disturbing revelation that his wife may not have died from cancer but was murdered as part of a plot against the president-elect. Separated from his teammates and unsure of who he can trust, Sinclair is on a mission not only to save his country, but to avenge his family against Parizad with extreme prejudice....

Three Star General Door Kicker? Nope.

Interesting story despite the bad gun info (Mag lights on rifles? Seriously hasn't been done since the 90's. I mean, no one uses Mag lights anymore, like ever). Despite the bad technical info throughout the story, it was interesting. Not great or even that entertaining but interesting.

started off as a great story..some what unbelievable .since when does a general ever scuff his shoes or leave his office.. the story only gets worse since half the book is about his love for his wife... ruined it with the wife n family nonsense.

Boring!

Did I mention that it's boring? The person reading this book is not good. The story is not good. If I heard about the stupid covid garbage one more time! Terrible, had to stop listening. The only reason I listened to as much as I did was that I was taking a trip and didn't have anything else. Refund please.

Not credible and boring

I love thrillers. This was a yawner. Not believable. Awful narrator for a lackluster tale. Refund me please.

Simply silly

A retired general's fantasy. Three-stars don't go gallivanting around on Tier 1 missions, while ignoring their strategic responsibilities. Cue Springsteen "Glory Days."

Intense!

If you like military thrillers this will be a fun book. The book is almost all action so intense and tough to put down.

Awesome Novel

Please keep writing on this!!! I found it so captivating I couldn’t put it down!!! I love it to have found a new writer that writes novels on what used to be their former career and take the artistic freedom to write and add or delete as needed to write this in such a compelling way. Thank you.
